This weekend - The War Run




We are proud to be supporting the War Run presented by 33 member BigScott666.

It's time my friends - 1st Annual WAR RUN - Oct 1st - ride will start from Rocky Mount NC to Fort Fisher then proceed on the ferry to Southport.  From there, to my shop "The Compound".  I'm putting this ride together to not only pay tribute to all of the men that lost their lives fighting for "the Fort" but to also bring my brothers together and ride choppers.
-----------------------------------

Go to www.warrun.bigcartel.com to purchase the $20 chopper package which includes: t-shirt/shoprag/ferry ticket/raffle ticket.  All proceeds from the raffle tickets will go towards "Homes for Heroes" 
Don't miss out on these killer raffle prizes...we currently have several sponsors donating some rad stuff.. from swag, custom painted helmets/tanks, hand crafted artwork, and a couple tattoo gift certificates from two talented individuals. All packets will be picked up on Friday night or Saturday morning in Rocky Mount.  This will minimize anyone losing their tickets. 
---------------------------------
Everyone plan to meet in Rocky Mount either Friday night or Saturday morning. You can pile people in rooms at the Candlewood Hotel, then smash some early morning breakfast at the diner across the parking lot.  I'll give the safety brief with all details on the route @  9 am with kick stands up @ 10.
----------------------------------
Tent camping will be available at my shop Saturday night for anyone interested.  
----------------------------------
Big SHOUT OUT to my man Gorgeous George for his incredible talent in drawing up both the flyer and t-shirt design much appreciated brother!!! 
----------------------------------
For anyone interested in sponsoring the event..DM me for details. It's FREE!

Three reasons for coordinating this run:

1.  As a 24 year retired military veteran, I wanted to select a "military theme" name for the run - and designate a battle site for the ride - so Fort Fisher was selected which is located on Kure Beach, NC. 

2.  I also wanted to select an organization that helps wounded military veterans, so I selected  "Homes for Heroes"

3.  Lastly, I simply wanted to to bring my "brothers" together and ride on the open road.  A lot  of my close friends are very busy with family and jobs...so I kinda wanted this to "force" them away.  We all need this therapy, I just like it with my friends because this quality time it's so rare.

You've been warned..........



Today is the final day to enter Lowbrow Customs' Cole Foster Gas Tank giveaway We will announce the lucky 33 member in the morning. Enter now!

Today's feature: Art Class with Jason Cruz


Over the next few months, we will be focusing on painters and artists who help add color and style to our world. You'll know some of the names, but others are just starting to build a name for themselves within the community. Stellar artwork is an important factor in the advertising for any event and for t-shirt sales. The artist must understand the client's vision and bring that vision to life. The artwork normally helps set the tone for the event or product sales. I met Jason Cruz back in early 2012 and have been a fan of his ever since. Jason has created artwork for Dice Magazine, Street Chopper, Wrench Magazine, Loser Machine, Born-Free, Noise Cycles, and Heavy to name a few. It's easy to see that his illustrations have helped move each brand forward. Let's face it; we're all walking billboards for any company we support. The simple act of wearing a t-shirt will often bring like-minded people together that were once strangers. Jason has been creating one hit after another; staying true to his craft all the while. I hope one day you have the opportunity to speak to Jason face to face. You'll leave with the impression that he lives, sleeps and breathes all things ART and enjoys every challenge that's brought to him. Take a moment to meet my talented friend, Jason Cruz. - Lisa

Brooklyn Invitational - September 24, 2016

We are honored to be supporting the Brooklyn Invitational once again!


The Brooklyn Invitational is a motorcycle exhibition and showcase event founded in 2009. First held in a Brooklyn waterfront warehouse in New York, it was the first of its kind in the United States. With a concept unique to the era, they created an event in which their professional backgrounds in fine art, photography and custom motorcycle fabrication lent to the curation of what they felt to be the best work being done in the custom motorcycle world. They presented these iconic motorcycles from diverse genres in a setting akin to a gallery, accompanied by a musical program. The Brooklyn Invitational is directed by Keino Sasaki, John Copeland, and Jessica Lee Wertz.
