Picture me Rollin’

Finally got the balls to take that damn long bike out on the town last night. New Kevin did me a solid and got this sweet clip of me straight hoodie ninja’d out, making my way home. This is the first time I’ve really ventured out of my neighborhood on this thing. Once I got rolling, I was out of my dome in love with this thing. So here it is: Ebony Queen officially on the scene.

More Lemonade

Been a lag in posts over the last week. Ive been balls deep in repairs and finishing the garage. Hopped in the truck last Saturday, put it in drive, hit the gas and she just sat there. Transmission took a shit on me so once again, Im making lemonade. Most of my recent focus has been on turning this…

into this…

Figure if Im gonna fix it, Im gonna step it up. That said, buy a shirt, I could use the extra cash.

Union Speed and Style – Garage Feature III

Ran out to visit Jordan at Union Speed and Style yesterday. Turns out it was his Birthday. Happy birthday mother f*cker! Jordan is fitting me for a custom vest. Sh*t is gonna be tough! Denim w/ golden brown stitch, green/tan flannel liner, and a short pop collar. While I was there I thought it a good time to get him in for a little garage feature session. Union Speed is tucked back on River street in Monticello. A little off the beaten path but for what he’s doing, its probably a good thing. This dude is so busy, he’d probably loose his sh*t if he were in the twin cities (distractions day in and day out).

Jordan and I don’t get many chances to hang out with us both being knee deep in running our respective shops. That said, I did get to rock down to Iowa with him lat weekend. His little XS has got some serious balls. Not surprising… his bike didnt miss a beat once the entire trip. His spot was packed with projects. Jordan dabbles in all sorts of stuff. He’s turning out custom tanks, frames, leather and denim, seats, etc. Come to think of it… he’s a bit of a one stop shop.

Union Speed works pretty steadily throughout the year and they even manage to make all the stops on the vendor circuit. I’m not even really sure exactly how many people make up Union Speed but from the work load, they probably some kind of small army.

The Union Speed Crew are definitely a younger bunch but they’re also talented well beyond their years. If you need some fabrication, without having to deal with the grumpy old heads in the scene, these are the dudes to hook up with. They’ve got the skills and creativity to blow minds. Check em out.

Retro Moto Photo 1

I love a hillclimb! Talk about a great way to spend a Sunday. My pappy was real big into this hillclimb stuff way back when everyone showed up on sh*t you wouldn’t dare hit a hill with today! I saw this photo and thought it was a perfect example of that feeling you get when your fightin’ that hill and praying to god that you dont land on your balls. I cant say for sure but it looks like this guy is riding a BSA??
