peter "freaking" line!

Peter line has and always will be one of my favourite shred's of all time. Seriously, i remember wanting his rainbow division 23 board, 4 square kit and killer thirty two pro model boots (i think he was one of the first shred pros to have a pro model boot) just so i emulate his style while on the hill. This youtube vid reminds me why i am such a huge PL fan; check it out and remember, this shit is from 1996, yep 96. nuts eh

no sound, damn your copyright rules youtube!

should have left it stock vol.9

this thing was nuts, and had all the ingredients that are needed to qualify for a should have left it stock feature: wing - check, kit - check - carbon fibre hood - check, funny headlights - check, tinted windows and sills - check

this ride bears an erie resembalance to vol 7 of should have left it stock, and i know that this dude has probably sank 20 grand into this thing, but even after all that, homie should have spent the money on his techno collection and left it stock

Gastown Show n' Shine Part 3

As is tradition on the blog, we hitup the annual Gastown motorcycle show and shine. While I am not a show bike guy, Nan has been breakin my balls for the past year to enter my bike into the show as there really is no sporty presence whatsoever. So I convinced Johnny boy to join me and we dropped into the show.

Being total newbies to the motorcycle show scene both John and I wondered how the judging worked, and what category we would be put in. To both of our surprise, J-man and I got lumped into the ever popular “bobber” category, and as a result we were in a pretty huge category as everything that didn’t seem to fit the mold got lumped into the same category. Weird classifications aside, Johnny boy pulled out the surprise 2nd place, which was awesome. Again, we were both shocked as hell, but I must say that John’s bike indeed deserved it. The details and the work on his bike are second to none, nice work J-man, you killed it! Until next year Gastown…. I didn't take my camera so john was on picture patrol, testing out his new nikon. nice pics dude

you get the feeling that the sportbike guy likes monster energy drink?

The line-up getting in

Rad sporty

Although it was not my thing, the work on this bike was nuts. It looked like it was right out of a cartoon

johnny’s backing the springer’s

Dig the tank art

These bmw’s were crazy and apparently all owned by the same guy. He brings em in via flatbed, wack.

yeah, yeah I know you’re thinking what’s with the old man bike? But I really dig these things

sproklin cat!

check out this awesome Terje "the sprokling cat" footage from 1999. a shitty halfpipe and conditions didn't stop Terje from boosting with such amazing style and power + a method that rivals jamie lynn (doesn't beat it, just rivals it)

i remember watching this footie back in the day and being blown away by it, awesome.

tight panters get no love

yeah, i know this may be harsh, but its too funny not to post.

stolen from the dago speedshop blog

also from dago's blog is this awesome sporty that was at this past weekends gastown motorcycle show, super narrow bars. it was awesome

Hide Motorcycles, Hai!

Pretty sure I’ve posted about Hide Motorcycles from Japan before; as their bike the Mod Chop definitely needed to be blogged about. Well, while trying to kill time the other day I came across a video of one of Hide’s newest builds: the Strike Narrow Eagle chop. Now, after watching the video countless times, I declare the narrow chop my new favorite bike. Yeah, I don’t get suicide shifters, and I would probably look like a grizzly bear humping a rabbit if I was riding it, but still – the white rims, the paint job, the bars all just do it for me. The video is also pretty cool as the dude does some cool moves on the bike as well as almost putting it into oncoming traffic when he does a burn out, RAW!!!!!

Homie is running the most chic helmet of the day as well, the bell moto 3 (click the link, and yes, that dude wants $445 for a 30 year old helmet), hop on it hipsters!
