The Handbuilt Motorcyle Show was last weekend along with the Moto GP race in Austin, Texas. They had a great offering of bikes on display as well as some killer photography and super rare club Vests. Every builder was given the privilege of receiving a tin-type photo of their bike from Lumiere Tintype Photography. Lumiere also had a photo booth setup for portrait shots for other to experience too. One of the most exciting things there was the Wall Of Death! America’s Original Extreme Show! These guys ride Harley-Davidson and Indian motorcycles on a 14ft vertical wall circle track. It’s a sight you must see!!
We owe the guys at Revival Cycles a big thank you for putting on a such a great show and for being so dialed. They have a great helpful Staff who stepped up to help wherever was needed. BIG THANK YOU TO ALAN, JOEY, JEFF, STEPHEN and the others we met!
Check out the photos here! Continue Reading
This years Hippy Killer Hoedown was the best of the Hoedowns so far!! Kutty and Lisa did a phenomenal job organizing and the turn out was great. Great custom cars and bikes, killer music with lots of cold beer. They even had a mini bike race, we love events like this!
Every year at the Hoedown we pick a bike that we feel deserves a Slammer Kit. This year it was Freddy’s 2000 XL-883. We picked hi bike because it looked like he rode the crap out of it and might need a little love.
Do you love the look of a set of apes on a Street Glide? Be you hate sorting out which cables and brake lines to use? Do you prefer the style and performance of braided stainless cables and lines?
We thought so, and have just released a collection of braided stainless kits specific to the 2008-2013 Harley Street Glide. Each kit is tailored to work with our 13” or 15” apehanger and is available for ABS as well as non ABS FLHX and FLHT/C/U models. Kits include extended brake lines (including ABS lines) and extended clutch cable as well as all relevant wiring extensions for switches and throttle by wire, making installation much simpler.
It was also called the “sister bar”, the “stick shift” or the “passenger backrest.” The sissy bar was just waiting for a triumphant return as the “necessary” accessory to offer back support to your traveling lady or as the anchor point for your helmet(s), backpack, sleeping bag, blanket, camping gear, etc… And I must say that the brand new version of the sissy bar offered by Burly Brand is quite cool looking by itself, even when you have nobody to transport and nothing to carry.
The Burly sissy bar is a one-piece construction eschewing the ugly square tubes-complex mounts-tacky studded backrests, for a simple and classic look that mounts up in 20 minutes without cheapening up your bike. TIG welded here in the good old USA, Burly is building their Sissy Bar in a short as well as a tall version that includes a compact pad.
One piece sissy bar mounts to outside of fender rails for simple install and removal and includes the hardware to do it right. Black powder coated and available for 2004 – 2014 Sportster applications with more on the way. Check out the Burly Brand Website or contact your local dealer to get yours.

Last Saturday was the premiere of the Mama Tried Show. Curated in an abandoned warehouse close to the Harley museum in Milwaukee. Mama Tried show looked like it was a big one! Bummed we missed it but there’s always next year. Spotted a bunch of crazy bikes from all over. Would have really liked to have met Scott, Warren Jr. and crew! We did however see a rad FXR that stood out among the crowd. It was @fxrfriday’s bike with our 15″ Stiletto Shocks. He fitted the machine with spiked ice tires and ran out there with the pros! Again really bummed we missed that! Here are some pics we poached from HD Forums. Better make sure you check this one out next year and good for you if you managed to get out to Milwaukee this year.
