Well He's no Pastel but.........

Alright so I'm all about local support. So you can get it cheaper online, or there is some 'Master Builder' of whatever in sum ultra hip area that does the best work for 200 times the cost of reality. Well if your into name brand for the sake of name brands go for it, some people like getting it snapped off in there ass by some overrated LA TV star.

Enter Scott Willis. Good friend for 15 years, lead singer of The Utah County Swillers, and leather man extraordinaire. He makes bitchin wallets, belts, and now scooter saddles. This one is mine I made the pan and handed off to him. Could I have covered it? Yeh, Do I have time, tools, I fix, build and sell bike parts. NO leather in my blood but it's in Scotts. 4 day turn and I got a bitch handtooled saddle by a great American man with a American name living in America doing American things.

He's doin the one for the little chop below and he was going to do Steveo's but Steveie has way too much time on his hands and did it himself rather than trying to make money takin pictures he sat on his porch with a smoke and did it himself.

Sure there is a cheaper boy in china, some guy outta state with a French name or you can support a local guy with talent who will turn around and spend his dollars you give him here in Utah, USA.

So if you want a bitchin wallet, belt or seat give Scott a buzz. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Well it showed today. Mr. Dan Worth of Worth Customs hand delivered it. Which was very cool. I have built a ton of bikes and the one thing that is always a hassle is paint. It always takes way longer than it should and there is usually issues, swirls, fisheyes, orange peal...some bullshit somewhere to make it take even longer to get perfect.

Not this time. Like a 8 day turn around. Smooth, super polished you could swim in it. Very happy with Dan.

My pics blow and don;t do it justice. the racing strip disappears in the right light it's very subtle. I'm sure when Stevo snaps a shot or 2 you will get a better idea.

Blag wagon

So I'm not into this blag thing. I work a lot and this is not the way i like to spend my micro seconds of freetime. I will try to post regularly. Steven , if you guys know him, started this thing and as usual got it goin and then..well as you can see the last post was like june.

So here we go.

I started this build about 6 weeks ago. Too busy in the shop movin parts and finally had to get to this thing. Made a bunch of shit oil bag/lines, exhaust, seat and shaved a bunch of shit, narrowed and flatbottmed the tank and it's all off to paint. Here are a few picks. I am no photographer but here are a few mock ups.
I'll post painted pics soon I'll get paint back tues. and it'll be on the road friday.
Also my non LA based leather man Scott Willis of the Utah County Swillers covered my seat pan for my FXR and it's bitchin. I'll get pics of it on soon. He's also doin the one for this scoot too. Killer local work.
