Jason Ochoa’s Purple Haze
The beautiful Panhead that is gracing the pages in front of you was one we ran into at our annual bike show in Galveston during the Lone Star Rally this year. We had heard rumors from our Texas connection, Clinton Wallace, that this bike was coming into town for the show but we had no idea how over the top it was until we saw it in person. The day of the show started as a complete washout and the entries were sparse but once the skies cleared the Texans rolled heavy and in the last group in was Purple Haze that took Best of Show.
Lone Star Rally 2015 – Pirate Alley, A Pirate Ship And A Rodeo King
Texas, hard to believe that one of the last humongous events of the year was upon us but alas, we loaded up the Cycle Source van with family in tow and headed west… Again! It was only a week or so out when I found out that our usual suspects for the Lone Star Rally were tied up with unforeseen circumstances and we would have to break in some rally rubies for this event.
The Smoking Gun- How To Properly Solder An Electrical Connection
So when it comes to motorcycle wiring I have pretty much seen it all! From crimped ends, half a dozen butt connectors in ONE wire, household wire nuts, to your good ol’ twist the two wires together and throw some black tape on it.

AIM Expo- This Could Be The Answer
While the hunt goes on for what the industry will do to have an annual Motorcycle Expo, one group came up with an answer that may well be the solution we’re all looking for. For those of you that are not keyed into industry topics like this, it used to be that the Motorcycle Industry had one giant Expo each year that catered to all of motorcycling. Some years later the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo broke off from that and created a specialized Expo just for all things V-Twin
The St. Louis Seven- Milwaukee Mike On The Scene
Back in the late fall of 2014 I had the pleasure of spending a week in St Louis with some friends of mine whose bikes I have been seeing over the last couple of years at the St. Louis Cycle Showcase. This was the first opportunity I had to get everybody together to shoot their bikes for your viewing pleasure. We shot at three different locations to get some different backgrounds and show off the city’s low side. We started at Shady jacks a well-known biker bar north of downtown then headed over to the floodgate walls down by the river, finally moved to under bridge open air skating area that was built by local kids using their own money and ingenuity…so enjoy the St. Louis Seven.
