Bar Bobber
Hey what's on tap?
By Tripper
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Bar owners beware: If you see this sweet, little bobber outside your place of business, chances are, once it's gone, you'll be missing a minute, yet integral, part of your establishment's equipment.

Seeing Red
Rejecting the Theme Machine
By Todd Canavan/Photography: Hector De La Garza
--------------------------------------------------------------------
THEME BIKES. IT SEEMS LIKE THEY'RE EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK NOWADAYS. You've gotta love 'em or hate 'em, because they're all over the freakin' place. While they have been the staple of TV shows, T-shirt sales, and event atten­dance for a couple of years now, there was once a simpler time. Join us now on a journey into the past, where we'll investigate the evolution of the motorcycle and the creation of... [ read more ]

Easyriders Fall Bike Show Tour 2004
ATLANTA
First Class All The Way!
--------------------------------------------------------------------
The Easyriders Bike Show Tour for 2004 kicked some serious ass! The Centerfold Tour featured many master hike builders that you may have seen on The Discovery Channel's The Great Biker Build-Off series. When you attended an Easyriders Bike Show last year, you had the chance to hobnob with the likes of Indian Larry, Billy Lane, Paul Yaffe, Kendall Johnson, Eddie Trotta, Rick Fairless and Kirn Suter...[ read more ]

South Padre Island 's
Roar By The Shore
By Xsspeed

South Padre Island (or "The Island" to the locals) is located in Texas near Brownsville just above Matamoros , Mexico , on the Gulf of Mexico . Known regionally for its snow white sand and crystal clear water, South Padre Island is also the home of the "Roar By The Shore" Bike Fest held each year in October...[ read more ]

DEBT TO SOCIETY
(PAID IN FULL)
By Xsspeed

---------------------------------------------------------------
This is not your ordinary "build a pretty cool bike for no reason" story. This is a tale of a man who was trying to support a family of six as a trucker and made a bad career choice. That error in judgment cost him five years in the cross bar hotel. While in the big house, his family did the best they could to make ends meet and provide for each other; one of Santos "Pops" sons became a truck driver, his daughters worked around town and Johnny opened a custom bike shop...[ read more ]

Lucky
By Xsspeed

---------------------------------------------------------------
When I build a bike, I want to have the picture of how it will look in my head before I turn my first wrench. I usually have at least a rough draft of the final product before I even start. Some call this vision, others call this a "theme." There has been some debate as to what the term "theme" actually means when speak­ing of custom built bikes...[ read more ]

Johnny's Custom shop is located in McAllen , TX , 65 miles west of South Padre Island on the Rio Grande River . Johnny's is an old school Harley Shop specializing in all years and models of HDD's from Flatties to Evos...[ read more ]

Beauty in the Beast
By Xsspeed

---------------------------------------------------------------
As times change and technology improves, styles and trends also change. But as history shows, trends and styling are cyclical and true art never goes out of style. One prime example is Sean Sweeney's 1952 BSA A10 chopper known as "the Beast." Sean has been riding bikes since he was 14 years old...[ read more ]
