Nothing worse than a thief! A local chop came up missing, if anyone sees or hears anything about it, get at @fully_dusted

Happy Monday everyone! This is one of the shots that @greasykulture used in the latest issue of their magazine for the feature of Blackbird. @jordanpay did a phenomenal job shooting the bike out at Bonneville, if you haven’t already, go order a copy of the magazine from @greasykulture and check out the rest of Jordan’s work as well as a great write up from Guy. Lots of other great photography and killer bikes in the issue as well, it’s foreshore worth picking up!!

Can’t wait to see Blackbird looking all spiffy in the photos @deanchoochlandry took for @dicemagazine issue 81! Hope everyone’s weekend is going great!!

#fbf another choppa from a while back. Second pic was me rolling back home from the Easyrider show in Columbus, I was the only bike to ride out of there, maybe because it was January and to cold for all the baggers 🤔

I think about this car often(in the near lane). I owned it for a bit a few years back, original Top Gas car from Columbus that a friend found hiding under some different tins with a sbc in it. I changed it all back to hemi, made a new cowl for it, and undid some chassis updates to put her back to her glory. The second pic is how it left my Shop, ready for the expensive part, motor work and paint/finish

Dreaming of choppers lately, this is the last one I built, a ‘69 that @mcclearybrian now owns. Race bikes are fun, but cruising down the freeway and crossing state lines on a bike is also pretty rad! Really miss getting to use my bikes daily! Ill be building another chop soon..

Flash back to our great trip to LA. I’d like to thank @oldcrowspeedshop for all he has done for me in the last year or so, from trusting me to build the bike around his Carlheim motor, to just being a great friend and taking my family and I in and showing us a great time out in LA. I can’t thank you enough buddy! I look forward to future projects and adventures!

My buddy @44uldude and I were talking dirt drag racing a couple of days ago, it’s got me fired up wanting to get back into it! This was an old iron head drag bike raced in the 60’s, converted to dirt dragger, that a Columbus legend Fred at Big Bike Shop built and raced. Fred is a super rad guy and was gracious enough to let me take her out of storage a few years ago, and go out and do some racing that summer. Damn what a good time that was! This old bike had had its neck rung and was getting tired, but still fast as hell, she would have been a real hand full all fresh and ready to eat again!

So this is really awesome! I can’t tell you guys how stoked I am for my first full feature, and first COVER of a magazine! Thank you guys at @greasykulture so much for featuring the bike and putting this all together. I can’t thank my pal Bobby @oldcrowspeedshop enough for bringing this project to me and giving his input throughout the process to really help make this special bike come to reality! Also huge thank you to @jordanpay For meeting us out at bonneville on super short notice and snapping the great photos for us that @greasykulture used, they turned out spectacular man! Happy Monday everyone! If you want a copy, please follow the link in @greasykulture ‘s bio!

You guys sick of seeing this bike come across your feed yet? Lol I know I’m not sick of looking at it! Finally got the motor running ALMOST spot on, after making new head gaskets, and getting the cam and static timing sorted, she’s finally alive and frisky! Now just have to fine tune the carbs and do some touch up and she’ll be ready for @fuelcleveland next weekend then @harleydavidson 115th, then across the globe for a finale at @mooneyesjp before heading to the salt next August to really break her in! 💪🏼😃😃 @oldcrowspeedshop @bornfreeshow #bornfreeshow #bf10 #bf10invitedbuilder #bestinshow

Making memories with some great friends in Milwaukee yesterday at the Miller meet! Thanks again @oldcrowspeedshop and @jacobs_lader for letting us tag along in the pits. And @sawilliams and his parents for having us over Friday night to help split up the drive a bit, always great to see everyone! Oh and the cars were AMAZING! So much so I hardly took any pictures, just mentally took everything in, like the olden days with no phones lol #harrymiller #offy #makinghistory

A great photo of my sidekick and I. How could I not give it my all with that kinda support from my awesome little human, she knew I was working crazy hours when she was at her Moms, so she would frequently send messages like that to me before bed. She is wise beyond her years that’s foreshore! Great shot from our time in the studio with @michaellichterphotography .. Thank you sir for capturing so many great moments, never dreamed playing with motorcycles would take me where they have and brought me close to so many very talented people! #daddysgirl #bf10invitedbuilder
