June Carter Cash- Vader Kills It With His Latest Pan
Sometimes I am actually lucky enough to tell a good story and cheer on the underdogs.  So, when there is a true feel-good story behind a bike such as the one you see before you it makes my tale to tell that much easier. I first met Tim Vander maybe a good four years ago when I was approached by a very well known bike builder at the Brooklyn Bowl to check out a bike built by a guy named Vander.  I could see that whoever this guy might be that he had skills and a true appreciation of the old school chop. I shot that bike a few months later and we have been friends ever since. I share this first meeting with you because it plays right into this build and the man behind it tells how standing up to the test of time makes you and what you do forever special.

 

 

Big Mountain Run 8- 2017
For the last four years my friend Max has told me stories about the “Big Mountain Run” (BMR). He told me how much fun it was and that I really needed to go.  But every year was the same, the BMR would come and the BMR would go and I wouldn’t make the trip. Well, this year would be different. Two weeks before the Gypsy Tour and BMR I was hanging with Max and he talked to me about the Run, again.  I was determined to finally make it. It would be easier for me this year because I was going to be in Boone NC the week before and its half way to BMR. I wanted to be there even though everyone that goes says is “It’s Really Not That Good”. So, there I was, in the mountains of WV along the Cheat River with a few hundred bikers, some that I already knew and some that I had just met for the first time. 

 

Used Bike Blues: Cleaning Out An Old Fuel Tank
We’ve all been there. You find a bike that’s a great price, and the owner says it just needs a battery. Most of the time I either take a battery with me or tell the seller to get a battery and I will pay the asking price plus the battery if it all checks out. Well, I recently went against all of my used bike purchasing practices and bought a bike without starting it. The bike in question is a 2004 Harley-Davidson Wideglide, and its’ a fuel injected model at that. I drove two hours to pick up the bike. When I got there, the battery was toast. I called a couple of auto parts places to see if there was a battery in town.

 

Tony Reynolds- Metal Tattooing
Born and raised in London, England, Tony Reynolds’ childhood can be likened to what one might see in a movie. As soon as he was old enough to hold a pencil, he was drawing. During school, students would pay him to draw their favorite cartoon characters or finish their art class projects. He painted murals on school walls and the walls of his and his friends’ bedrooms. At one point, later in life, he spent a year painting Trompe L’oiel murals all over a millionaire’s mansion. As soon as he left school, Tony began working. He built houses and luxury yachts for sunseekers. He also renovated bars, restaurants and even turned a church into a nursery school. He’s had more jobs than he often cares to admit!
