I took these pics at Willie’s Tropical Tattoo in Daytona last year at Biketoberfest. The Horse Magazine was having an old school chopper show and there were some totally sick bikes there (Will feature some more of them later).
A great looking Harley Davidson Fatboy with the Twin Cam motor, primary, hell everything powder coated black. It looked really good with the white tank and fenders. Really like how the ape hangers and hand controls looked all blacked out.
If you make it down to Biketoberfest this year (which is only about 2 months away – can’t wait) it is worth it to stop by Willie’s and check out his work and the bikes in the parking lot.
Made it through another one!
Here we have a sexy blonde babe Ericka making the Exile Cycles Biker Build-off trike look even better.
The weather here in southeastern VA is suppose to be right on this weekend so the wife and I are going to get some miles on the road.
Have a great weekend.

Both builders came up with some really great old school bikes but Trevelen’s bike was completely and totally wicked. The frame that Trevelen built was just awesome. Really liked the ribbed steel he used for the down tubes. This guy and his crew are truely great fabricators.
Trevelen’s El Peligroso Chopper
Above is a pic of Trevelen’s creation. The blue chopper named El Peligroso (Dangerous). I like very much.
Trevelen did win the build off over Scott Long and in my opinion the better bike did win. Scott’s bike was nice and the paint job was pretty kick ass but over all I just did not pick up on anything really special about the bike he built. I did like the oil bag that they put together using two Twin Cam jugs. That came out pretty sweet. Probably the only thing on the bike that really jumps out.
Scott Long’s Biker Build Off Bike
The old school touchs on Trevelen’s bike just really set it off. Trevelen did have some trouble with his motor burning up oil on the last few miles of the 1000 mile trip from LA to Albuquerque, NM for the judging but he did make the ride. Would like to know what happened to the motor. Did some searching around the net to see if anyone had posted anything about the troubles but could not find anything. Anyone know?

I was searching around the net lastnight, don’t even remember what I was looking for, and came across this very cool “mini” bobber.
The Hardknock old school mini bobber manufactured by Kikker Moto 5150.
Now I am not a fan of these chinese “mini choppers” that you see all over the place, I think most of them are junk, but this one kind of caught my eye.
For one it is made in the USA of steel. The bike features a rigid frame, springer front end, kick or electric start, jockey shift, and a couple of cool paint job options – flat black, flames, very cool. The Hardknock bobber is available with 2 different engine sizes, either a 49cc or 110cc, and can reach speeds over 50 MPH. Kikker also offers a line of accessories and replacement parts for the bike. The price of the HardKnock bobber starts at just under 2 grand.
OK so it is not the usual cool, but it is pretty neat.
Check out Kikker 5150 for more info on this very cool mini old school bobber.
The the first episode of the new season of Discovery Channel’s Bike Build-Off airs on Monday August 7, 2006 at 9:00PM.
No doubt you have heard something about the trouble Billy had with his bike on the way to Laconia for the Build-Off. If you haven’t well check out the video over at the Beach Cruiser.
This should be a pretty good episode. I really like both Billy and Russell’s style of bikes. Though I tend to lean a little more towards Billy’s very unique old school made from scratch bikes (even if they do have there problems). The hubless rear wheels are incredible cool.
This is a pic of one of Billy Lane’s hubless creations taken at the Smokeout VII
Russell builds some very nice, clean looking bikes. I personally like the fact that he stays away from chrome and flashy paint jobs. Brushed metal and rattle can black. My personal favorite of Russell’s has to be the trike he built for the Build-off a couple of seasons ago. That was one kick ass ride.
Russell’s Biker Build-off Trike from a couple of seasons ago. It didn’t win but it is still bad ass.
Should be a good episode so check it out on Monday, August 7 at 9:00PM on the Discovery Channel.
Well Sturgis is just a few days away and many folks are already on the road.
If you are heading that way keep an eye out for this hot biker babe – Debbi Davids.
She will be there looking good. If you can’t make it to Sturgis check out her website here.
The weather here in the south east is suppose to break this afternoon and cool down a bit for the weekend. Stay cool till then.
Have a great weekend!
I did not catch the show when it aired this past weekend but the Food Network aired Alton Brown’s Feast on Asphalt again lastnight.
It was pretty good. The idea behind the show is that Alton and his crew are spending a month traveling across the country on motorcycles, staying off Interstates whenever possible, camping along the way, and eating at roadside diners, truckstops, and such.
There are 4 episodes total and last night was the first episode that originally aired on July 29. They started out in Isle of Palms South Carolina and zig-zaged across South Carolina, Georgia, and North Carolina stopping at different family owned resturaunt and road side joints.
Good show. For a schedule of when it will air again and some pictures and such from the road check out http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_ab

Here you go a sexy blonde biker babe for your Friday Eye Candy treat.

I know it is practically the middle of summer, who needs riding leathers now… Well believe it or not it is nearly August and the cool nights will be here before you know it.
If you are in the market for some riding leathers check out Fox Creek Leather.
Fox Creek Leather is a family owned, family run leather manufacturer and retailer located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
They carry a huge line of motorcycle leathers including riding jackets, gloves, vests, chaps, saddle bags, tool bags, and more. Their leather is high quality stuff and most of their products are manufactured by them right here in the good ol’ USA.
If you are looking for a new leather jacket, vest, or nice set of leather gloves check them out. I personally wear several pieces of Fox Creek Leather gear when the weather gets cool. Great stuff and you cannot beat their customer service. All of their leathers are also covered by a lifetime guarantee – now that is kick ass.
Stop by and check them out.
