Tattoos on the El Diablo Run

Mike Castillo "Big Island" will be tattooing on the EDR and if
you would like to make sure you can get work done please contact him
and work out the details here:


He currently works at Wondo's South Pacific Tattoo Co. in Waikiki, HI.


and came up under Mark Mahoney at Shamrock Social Club on W. Sunset Blvd. in
Hollywood, CA.


Mike will not have a copy machine on the trip so you should send any artwork
or ideas to him now so he can do any prep work needed. He enjoys doing
black and gray, fineline, and portraits, but does all types. Here is some
pics of his work.


Auction for Courtney "Tito" Halowell

BIKE WORKS EDITOR STILL NEEDS YOUR HELP-- The editor of Bike Works recently had a stroke and can no longer work. Primedia hired him to produce truck magazines and he recently left the headquarters. When the current editor of Bike Works left they asked Courtney if he would produce Bike Works on a freelance basis, as a test, before taking him on full time. Courtney is a veteran rider, has a long history with motorcycle magazines and is well respected in the industry. Suddenly he was cut down with a stroke and could no longer work. Freelance stature didn't afford him company health benefits and his Cobra health plan was out of wack.

The auction itmes for Courtney "Tito" Halowell are up on ebay. There are several items donated by several companys across the US. Go and bid on the items and help a fellow biker out!

If you would like to donate items please email a photo of the item and description to:

Hold Onto Your Hat...

Christian at XianLeather graciously dropped everything this winter to upholster one of our first pre-production seat pans. Submitted for your approval: six artsy-fartsy photos of what just may be the best-looking Biltwell product on the planet. This seat and similarly stylish units from Purkey, Duane Ballard and Paul Cox will be making the rounds at various bike shows and swapmeets from coast to coast this year. We won't be returning to the Long Beach Motorcycle Swap Meet until this May, but when we do, this seat and hopefully a solid supply of our new open face helmet in metalflake colors will be available for your enjoyment. To all the artists and craftsmen who worked their magic on our seat pan, thanks for your tremendous talent and support.
