From The Archives: Dave Roberts' 1952 Triumph 6T


When Dave pulled the bike out after his dad's passing he found a well-preserved example of a 1960's Triumph custom. The tank and fender were re-shot in mile-thick red metallic and the frame was cleaned and left in the condition it was found in. This bike had all the right shit from back in the day, a perfect pre-unit rigid frame and front end with MCM fork covers, Bates seat, and headlight, Flanders bars, Wassell tank and fender original pre-unit controls and 19-inch wheels, and every bit of the trim and hardware was chromed.

The Greasy Dozen Garage Builder Collective 2016 is here!


By Bear-

Like we said the first year; it's not a tough guy thing it's about building / riding motorcycles and having fun!

Selection starts today and runs through May 21st at 8pm est.

Who Can Apply: Anyone can participate, 33 members, Flies, Cats, Zombies, Taco Eaters, Scooter Trash, Lurkers, the only group barred are Vegans...

You must be a home garage builder or small shop with 2 employees or less. This is not some corporate thing it's a very basic grassroots affair with a focus on building bikes! It's been that way since we originally approached Billdozer about it and so it will remain. Pulling together like-minded companies to help out new builders and up and coming shops with parts and support!

I had a good conversation with my friend Walter at Kick Start Cycle a few days ago. We talked about when the new scene emerged around 2005 and how things were really cool and drama free. It was finally a scene about the bikes and good times. There were few rivalries and anyone that wanted to bring that was quickly made aware that this was about riding motorcycles and having fun.

The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective embodies that spirit and I'm hoping this year we can gel some of the brotherhood and collective energy that made the first years so great..

The Greasy Dozen will continue to call Chop Cult home, but IG users and people from other corners of the internet may enter, all info updates winner and so on will be posted here to keep it simple You can add updates to your build thread here or IG etc but will continue to post progress and prize updates here. True to its form we will be getting back to the roots of brotherhood, community and collective effort that made the emerging nouveau chopper scene so great. We have opened it up to allow users of other forums or those who are exclusively on smartphones to participate.

All brands, all creeds, the only rule is be respectful to one another and make it about the bikes!

I want to thank Lisa Editor in chief here at CC for hosting us again and Allen and Brandon for your help and support.

Ok, let's get to the Bikes!!!

To Apply:

1. Follow @Oldbikebarn on IG as more details will be posted there as they develop.

2. You must post picture here in the Chop Cult thread or on IG of your current build or raw material tag @oldbikebarn and include ‪#‎greasydozenbuildercollective2016‬ adding a few details about your plan and what category you wish to try for:

The categories are:

3 Short Chops

3 Long Bikes

2 Cafe

2 Oddball

2 Street tracker

3:Extra points are awarded for anything Starwars related in your submission.

4.Multiple unique posts are also encouraged, as they show your enthusiasm level.

Once chosen each builder can select how and where the will showcase their build using #hashtag #greasydozenbuildercollective2016

If you have questions you can email matt@thegreasydozen.com and he will help you out.

Builders will have 5 months to complete a bike and hopefully, attend the Greasy Dozen Run September 30, 2016, You can expect the usual format, a rowdy ride, bbq, corn boil and camp out at the Clark Family Farm.

In closing, I'll point out the prizes come in the name of the winner and are redeemable in the form of gift cards or promo codes. Handled clean and professionally, designed so nobody cheat anyone. The facts are this actually costs all the companies involved time and money. We work as a team to give something back to the community, and try to inspire more people to build their own bikes as they watch this unfold!

Now let's see them submissions! Winners will be selected May 21st

Big thanks to Phil Guy @burritobreath for the rad art http://www.someguydesign.com/,

So far this is the list or generous companies supporting, more will be coming!

Voodoo Vintage Fabrication Girder Front End – RELIC

Voodoo Vintage Fabrication Girder Front End – RELIC


There are so many innovations on this puppy it's freaking crazy! Not satisfied with your rake? No problem! Same goes for the fork length. Adjust both with very little effort and switch back again when you are ready! Custom shock brackets may also be used to accommodate various length shock absorbers and to adjust fork length in addition to the Axle Clevis Adjustment.

Safety is a priority! Nightmare scenario, your steering stem nut becomes loose or falls off altogether (a well-known issue with girder style front ends). On the RELIC front end, the lower active link pin serves as a redundant safety backup system by preventing the lower tree from separating from the steering assembly.



Another cost saving feature - Built in accommodation for an internal fork stop. Use a "bearing race style" fork stop (available on site) and don't worry about drilling and tapping holes. Everything is already taken care of!

Accommodations are provided for numerous style front brake systems and the axle bushings can be machined to just about any size Standard or Metric.

The RELIC is available in raw steel ($895 Retail) and Gloss Black powder-coat ($1095 Retail). Shock absorber and Axles are purchased separately or you can source your own. Standard lengths include 18", 22", and 26". However... We will fabricate the RELIC to just about any custom length needed. (Additional cost may apply)

Additional components are available for purchase including a variety of shock absorbers, turn stops, axles, spacers, and bushings.

In all, the RELIC front-end is an updated twist on early American technology and a fresh new option for seekers of classic style.

From The Archive: Donnie Walker's Sweet WOMAN


Old school Honda choppers have always had a special place in my heart. I kind of fell in love with Donnie Walker's Sweet Woman during Biltwell’s Parking Lot Sale earlier this year. It was parked amongst a sea of Harleys, and I was instantly smitten. Donnie's bike reeked of the early 70s. With its raked front end, awesome prism gas tank, and radical paint job, it leaned with style. Yes folks, what you see here is an original Denver's Choppers bike that is actually ridden everywhere today.

Rolling Heavy Magazine Issue 8



For this issue, we are pretty Chevy Heavy.





"Starting off with Jason Forman’s Survivor 4X4 3rd Gen Chevy. Then we got an Early Ford that’s a daily driver ready to cruise Whittier Blvd, a couple of kick ass members of the Dodge Van Clan, followed by one of the sweetest surviving shop vans still rolling since the 70’s, Blue Paradise and wrap that up with a couple Zingers."



All that and you have Rolling Heavy Magazine #8.  Hope you enjoy it!  Tell your friends!!!!  And as always, thanks for your  support!!!! - Matt
