The Hell On Wheels Stadium Steeplechase was last Saturday March 21st at the Glen Helen Raceway or Gelen Helen as they typo-ed in the flyer and screamed about the pits by our buddy Mark from Rusty Butcher. Gelen Helen, Gelen Helen dog… Where’s my Starbucks soy frappuccino?! Anyway they held the event on the Trophy Truck Track. Boasting sweeping turns, tabletops and wide open action. Or more like dust bowl and sandy washes whatever you want to call it. The event was still lots of fun as we always make the best out of it and like to give Hayden and Mr. Ball a hard time.
We even managed to drag out the “new guy” Paul. It was his first time on a dirt bike in over 15 years. Took a while to get the ol’ 2 stroker running but once we did we couldn’t get him off that thing. Good times for sure!
Ladies: open to all bikes
Mini bikes up to 100cc
Vintage MX pre 74
Modern MX 1980+
Bomber 75-80 and dual sport
Here are the pics we managed to snag with a couple from our bud Preston Burroughs.
We made it back up to Portland for The 1 Moto Show 2015. Portland is a great city with lots of awesome places to eat and hang with friends. This year the event was held in a old naval manufacturing plant from back in the day. Complete with a Steam Hammer this place screamed industrial and made for a great addition to all the high quality bike builds.
We were invited to bring the Jackrabbit Scrambler to the show and of course had to get her dirty with some local Portland mud. Found an open field behind the hotel and ripped her up proper! Rode across the Burnside bridge and thru the town straight to the show.
Here are some pictures from the weekend, enjoy!

This years HOW Hillclimb was a blast as expected! As normal its was a run what you brung, one at time, timed run, short course finishing with a run at the hill. We took our Harley Scrambler the “The Jackrabbit” out for a go. The Jackrabbit is equipped with Burly Brand Scrambler bars, 15″ Stiletto Shocks, MX Style Pegs and Fork Preload Adjusters. Check out the photos below to see how we did.
We recently had the pleasure of meeting Nicole aka @sportster_girl. A spunky go getter with a cool 2013 Iron beggin’ for some attention. We hooked her up with a Sissy Bar, Slammer Shocks and Fork Preload Adjusters. Boy oh boy did the bike come to life! Here are some of the top picks from the day. Enjoy!
Sissy bar, Slammer Shocks and Fork Pre Load Adjusters.
Set a rag down to prevent the paint from being scratched.
Might need to cut your existing spacer to allow access for the Burly Brand Fork Preload Adjusters.
Set the preload evenly to a desired position.

Last Friday was the official RSD x Powerplant Grand Opening of their new retail shop on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, CA. Great shop with plenty of floor space and a cool patio out back. Styles from Yaniv and Roland are evident at every turn, from the great furniture and wide eclectic collection of random parts sprinkled throughout. Check out their new shop in the photos below.
Show Class Mag holds a People’s Champ Party at Cooks every year to vote on a few bikes they invited to be in the contest. The winner of the People’s Champ goes on to be in the Born Free Show. Always a lot of talent in this one. Too bad only ones goes on to the big show!
Daisuke and crew have a great shop in Higashi-Komagata, Tokyo; mostly focusing on the Café Racer style. They are the real deal, hand building most of their custom parts. Primarily working and customizing vintage Hondas they also dabble into vintage Harleys. Check out the shop in the photos below.
Recently we had the Moto Lady visit our facility and spin a few wrenches. She did an installation video with a Slammer Kit on a early model Sportster. The shoot went smooth and really does show how easy and painless the installation is. Here is a link to the video on YouTube: http://youtu.be/upb_oI532e4 Stay tuned for more videos soon!
