Gone, Baby Gone!

The EC van is now the Street Chopper Van... or the JG Holt Van, or something like that. As the time nears to be out on the open road, the stable at the shop keeps slimming down. This one will be missed for sure, but good to know it's in good hands!

Shot from the day we picked her up in Sacto.

Looks Like Mike D sold his Dyna...

At least he sold it to somebody with some taste! Nice MOTO lid and a cool scoot for sure. Rumor has it that Mike's headed to the Duc dark side now.

Stolen from the HOTW site. Really wish we could have made it out to Philly for Ride to Skate. Looks like the entire crew had a great time indeed, and always great to see product in action!

We love the Bolts crew for sure. Not just the dudes, but the videos and the whole vibe they carry with 'em. This installment even has a little beauty shooting of a Troop in action, so we love that too! Check 'em out and show some support - Bolts Action

It's ALIVE!!!

That's right, the boys back east (and middle...) have finally finished up the first of hopefully many SHOWCLASS mags! We're grateful to be a part and are looking forward to all the goodness yet to come. Go pick one up and see what they're all about on their site!

A little East Coast Support!

We tossed some schwag into the pot for ya at the upcoming Ride to Skate shindig out east. Make sure you make time to go and take it all in. Good events thrown by good folks makes this all worth doing, so show your support and go have some fun this weekend!

Sink your teeth into some new goodness!

What better way to wrap up a great trip to Mexico than to release some new product on ya?! Just got two new products up on the store as well as putting a couple old ones back in stock too. Old stuff includes some yellow flip bases finally and Bikini Fairings are back in stock as well. Check 'em out!

As for new stuff, we've got the brand new Spot Headlamp and the LoPro Prison Fairings in. The Spot is a great follow-up to the Lamplighter and uses the same great 4.5" H4 Halogen bulb / lens combo in an awesome casing that is the perfect nod to the Unity lights of old. Small and bright is the key, while the great style fits just about any build.

The Prison Fairing is the perfect addition to the LoPro lineup and is made of hand-laid fiberglass this time around. Tough as nails and the perfect way to liven up that narrow glide front end. Looks great on whatever setup you put it on for sure!

Back from the Great Beyond!

Well, made it back to HQ without any issues to speak of. Great time on the EDR for sure! Great to hang with old friends and new. Met a bunch of you guys who support us so well, and am better for having done so. Awesome to see so much EC gear out there on the road getting used and put to the test too. Promised that the phone would get left off the entire time, and except for these 3 photos, I stuck to my guns. Thanks to all that came out and tore it up with us!

Spider Man trains Mexican boxers and sells Churros in his off time...

This one just prooves we were awake during the day too...

And this guy won an award and actually got up to get it...

Look forward to seeing you out there!

Time to brush up on your Spanish! ORDER AND SHIPPING UPDATES FOR THE WEEK!

Off to EDR as of Thursday, so get your orders in by noon Wednesday to get shipping this week. All orders placed after that will go out on Tuesday the 10th. If you were looking for that special something to take along on the EDR, your time for shipping has already come and gone, so give us a shout and we'll have it ready for you when you hit the SoCal area. You can come by the shop and simply pick it up! How's that for service?!

Finally! Time in the shop...

That's right. Nothing to do this weekend, but hustle around the shop trying to get as much done as possible before heading out on the EDR this week. No, not trying to get any last-minute bikes ready for the ride. These are all the bikes for Born Free. Time's ticking down, and there's still a lot to do. If we're lucky, we'll have 3-4 bikes done just in the nick of time. Got some good things done - Panhead is coming together nicely, and as long as the final pieces show in the mail this week, it'll be being broken down for paint / powder / chrome next week and then back together by month's end ready for shakedown. The knuck is coming along nicely too, although you won't be getting any pics of that one. Super, secret stuff you see. Let's just say that there's a little fiberglass work left to do, and then a bunch of brackets, then she too will be ready for breakdown. Given the timeline, probably not seeing the knuck on the road till middle of June, if not right before the show. Cutting it close for sure! Here's a peek at the weekend -

Pan coming together nicely. Fender mounted finally.

Bent up some struts to make the passenger a little safer. 

And, turned this old shifter perch for forwards...

Into this. Much easier to shift with mids when the lever's not a mile away.
