Is it just me, or is anyone else gettin tired of seeing selfie pix of dudes in skinny jeans/beards/$200 jean vests standing on the seat of their rad chopper while riding with their "biker bros"? I live in Portland, so throw a PBR and you'll hit one. So, on that bitter note, check out this site: http://hipsterbikevideos.com

I traded my FXWG front end for a FLH one from a guy I met on Jockey Journal. Traded my 3.5 gallon tanks for some 5 gallon fat bobs, put on an old hinged rear fender, put on some floorboard controls, pogo seat, etc. I plan on installing a 2 into 1 exhaust and bigger FLH battery tray. I've always wanted a bone stock FLH, not a shiny resto or hipster chopper, just a regular working class Shovel...

Sold the unibody. Too much work and parts are as scarce as Jimmy Hoffa. So, I bought a 1966 Ford F250! I love the styling of the '66s and this one is straight with almost no rust. 352 v8 w/ a 3 speed automatic, rides purty nice. A little low geared with that Dana 4.10 rear, but I plan on changing that out at some point.

Its that time again! Went friday and saturday and rode the ol' ironhead in with my hermano from another madre Tyler Adams(his '78 Triumph is on the front page of The One website). Had a blast as usual and saw some old friends and amazing bikes. Kim Boyles Norton was stunning. So much so I completely forgot to get a picture of it! Roland Sands Evo Sporty was amazing also, as was DJs yellow cowboy boots. Highlight of the cold gray Portland winter.

Been using these guys for a few bikes now. Family run business and all of them, even the grandma, drag raced Harleys from the 50s till now. Just got my rear shovelhead cylinder back from 'em, new Black Diamond valves, new valve seats, guides and the exhaust spigot recreated and machined. Half of the spigot was broke off up to the mounting stud, so Dan built it up with weld, and Ryan machined it back to stock. True craftsman and the nicest guys you'll ever meet. http://www.baisley.com/
