One Size Fits Most? How is that Possible?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Today Chris, Bill and I had lunch with Courtney, the esteemed editor of "Street Choppers" magazine, at a tasty sushi joint in Corona, CA. Courtney brought some recent issues of his aforementioned ascendent periodical, plus more ubiquitous titles like "Hot Bike" and "Baggers" magazine. Needless to say, we were impressed. Since joining forces with "Hot Bike" editor Ernie Lopez, both titles have taken a star turn in terms of variety, creativity and breadth of knowledge and perspective. Courtney was very flattering in his praise for our efforts with Biltwell products, and showed his appreciation by featuring our seat pan and seat bracket in the new products section of this month's "Hot Bike" magazine. Ernie and some co-workers and friends joined us on last spring's EDR, and his account of the adventure can be seen in this month's "Street Choppers." Thanks to both gentlemen for their continued faith and generous support.

To help us illustrate the One Size Fits Most capability of our popular Biltwell helmet, Courtney agreed to model a root beer brown unit on his generously proportioned cranium. As you can see, the flexible Biltwell helmet fits Courtney like his favorite beanie. We asked Court if he could ride 5 or 6 hours in our helmet without discomfort, and he enthusiastically said, "Hell yes!"

Who are we to argue with a man with a size 8 grape?

PinStripes by MAS!!!

So we had a few and I mean few helmets in that I sent out the other day and Mitch already pinstriped his and we thought it looked Great! Mitch is a Rad painter and did the tank on my bike like 2 years ago now and I still love it. Great job Mitch expect some business from us soon!!! You can see more of his stuff at the pinhead lounge.

Rich Phillips Newest Creation

Here is some pics of Rich's newest bike. He used our exhaust kit on it and they look Great! Watch for it in an upcoming issue of DICE! Also check out his site Biker Saddles and see some of his leather tooling its Rad!


Mike's Shovel

A good friend of ours Mike from Southern Grease Pit got one of our seat mounts for his bike. His bike sort of speaks for itself. One of my favorites for sure! Here are some pics he sent us. Thanks Mike!


Seat Final Samples!

Ok here are the final seat samples done. I am stoked on these! They will come in Black or White Vinyl in either the classic Diamond or Tuck and Roll style. They won't be here for awhile as always, probably late Fall. Production should be soon as the pans and foam are almost done. You will be able to get either a covered seat or just the pan and foam so you can do your own thing. The foam as you can see is molded to fit the pan and contours with a varied thickness from 15-25mm. A plain Leather version will also be available but we are still working on the covers for those so that will be Christmas time.

Paul's XL

Our good friend from across the pond Paul at Paul's Boutique sent us an update on his XL Sporty bike he has been building. Looks Great Paul and the seat will be there hopefully soon.

"Here an update again, not a lot happened but some changes were made:

- Sportster gas tank with high flow petcock, "Half" Frisco, mounted on top of the
backbonewith a piece of Universal Solex handlebars.
- Seat, still waiting for the Biltwell seat so I cut the original seat and made it a
bit shorter and more comfortable than the diamond Alu plate that killed my back for some weeks.
- New front inner tube, cause I managed to make a hole in it while putting it on the rim.

Things to do:

- Exhaust, seat, seatmounts, jiffy, paint (or no paint), forward controlls etc etc.

We will keep you informed about the project, tips & tricks are welcome but not needed with
wrench guys like Philip & New kid on the block Boyd.....




I got an idea this weekend and cut up some of the Frisco bars to make a weird set of narrow pullback sort of rabbit style bars to try. I have loved all the japanese chopper styles I have seen and they have a great influence on stuff I tend to do. These in my mind definitely show that. Never satisfied and always thinking of the next change we'll see how long I keep these on. Actually I already have another set I am going to try but these looked kinda fun so I thought I'd post them. See ya on the 21 Run!!!


Keystones on Cory's

A friend of mine Cory is getting into bikes and just got this 2007 Night Train. He mentioned some of our bars and since most of the guys putting our bars on thier bikes are older garage style customs I thought it would be cool to see them on a new bike. A few guys on newer bikes have shown interest in doing this but when they find out its not just a bolt on and go thing they usually fade away. Cody at Caspers Friendly Cycle put them on for Cory and did all the wiring work involved on newer style bikes and here they are. Thanks for the pics Cory!


S&M BMX Turns 20!

Our BMX buddy Chris "The Mad Dog" Moeller just emailed us a flyer to his company's 20th anniversary party.

The flyer says it all. If you have questions, go to www.sandmbikes.com and read their blog. I'm sure more info will be made available as we get closer to the date.


21 Run

The 21 Run happens on the 21st of the every month and is a fine excuse for us to ride to a different cool shop, hang out with friends new or old, and check out custom motorcycles. Most months the 21st will fall on a
weeknight and the run will consist of meeting up at a chosen shop say
Morelands, Ventura Motorworks, Chabott or Cro's garage. We'll hang out
there and hopefully see some cool bikes in the shop and that guys show
up on. When we're done loitering at the shop we'll take a short ride
to a local bar/restaraunt and have some food. It will always be on the
21st and the location will change everytime. I will post the
location and time to meet there at on the Biltwell website. This first
one happens to fall on a weekend and there is a great event to go to
so you may want to camp out or get a hotel. When we have a weekend to
do this on we may as well take advantage. I'll post some good
campgrounds or hotels whenever its a weekend deal. Here is the flyer
for the first one and consider this your invite. Come along solo or
bring anyone you want. Hope to see ya there.
