Congrats Kevin!!!

Kevin, affectionately known as "Mustachio" to some, was the insanely lucky winner of this year's giveaway chop: a 1971 Harley Davidson Sportster called "The Tingler."  It couldn't have went to a better guy, and the best part is that we caught him off guard in his flip-flops and bathing suit!  Kick it Kevin!
Last year's winner of "The Voodoo Child," Sean London drew the winning ticket...

What A Blast!

Just want to thank EVERYONE that came out this past weekend for the most amazing Strange Days to date!  The weekend was a complete blast and went off without a hitch.  Having that many drunken biker heathens in a field together always has its risks, but the crew of people that came out to SD4 couldn't have been more respectful and considerate; and the great times had by all proved it.  This year's show was one for the books.  Huge to thanks to the Retrofit boys, Matt Rush, all of our generous sponsors, landowner Jamie Rickey, musical entertainment / sound crew, and our insanely awesome friends, girlfriends, and family for the endless help; probably forgetting some, but it could not be done without you.  Stay tuned for a total recap of the weekend; lots of photos to come!

Cal's already got a bunch of cool photos up:  http://captcals.blogspot.com/

Mission Statement:

Strange Days is a motorcycle get together for like minded chopper enthusiasts. It also takes place at a man's private property who is being kind enough to have us; so respect for his land is important. This is purely about the love of bikes, good tunes, and just having a fun time. We would love for everyone to join us, and just keep it peaceful! So please no fireworks, personal fires, burnouts, attitudes, or fights. We're encouraging a No Colors policy to help ensure this. No offense or disrespect to anyone, we just want to keep it low key, safe, and to be able to to do it again! Much thanks!

See ya there!

The Tingler Is Finished! Come Win This Bike At Strange Days Next Weekend!

The Tingler is finished! It has been another long process and thousands of hours to bring this old chopper new life. Special thanks to Matt Rush for rebuilding the motor, Carl Miller for the seat work, Bob of Toon Town for the paint. Yours truly, Ben, and Joe did the fab work. Big thanks to Ken and Chris to let us work on this bike for Strange Days again. It takes a village to build a chopper!

Here's quick recap of the whole build process. Our goal was to build a chopped Sportster that utilized as much original Sportster parts as possible.

This is what we started with back in November/December.
























Matt Rush did an amazing job bringing this tired motor back to life.

 Test and tune! This bike absolutely rips! 




Come win this bike at Strange Days this weekend, July 11,12,13!!!! For more details on how, visit www.strangedaysevent.blogspot.com
