1st Lowbrow Swap & Meet Was A Blast

Thanks to everyone who came out to swap and sell parts, hang out, and ride motorcycles. We had a real good turnout throughout the day Sunday, lots of people drug their old parts out, lots rode in, and we had a great time hanging out. So much so that I took one single photo, so I had to steal these off of our Facebook page, and most of them off the Forever The Chaos Life blog, thanks guys! Check out all the photos in an album on our Facebook page here. We are aiming to do this again this fall before the weather turns to crap, stay tuned.

Customer Bike Spotlight: Vance's Triumph

I don't think I have put Vance's Triumph up on the site before, but it is one of my favorites and happens to be local and belongs to a friend of mine right here in northeast Ohio. I first saw this bike when it was all bare steel and didn't have the fancy paint (Angel Dust Cycle Paint / Joe Koenigsmark) or beautiful chrome and polish job (Jason's Show Quality Polishing). The chrome loop on the hardtail is killer. Maybe Vance will chime in with some details..

2nd Quarter Donations from Lowbrow Customers

I just sorted out donations from Lowbrow Customs customers for the 2nd quarter of 2012. Donations come from rounding up your total to a whole number, the spare change going to a charity of your choice. Pretty good tallies, with $1417.90 going to Wounded Warrior Project, $974.38 to Room To Read, and $176.02 to! Thanks for all your support and helping to make the world a better place, a little bit at a time.

The photo above is from a classroom who received a new easel and art supplies from our donations via DonorsChoose. It always amuses me to see little kids writing out 'Lowbrow Customs' and such in the thank you letters, funny stuff.

First Time Starting Double Vision

This video was filmed last week, on Monday, June 25th. It is the first time Double Vision, my dual engine land speed race bike, was fired up after several months of intense fabrication and wrenching. About an hour later this bike was loaded into our truck and hauled out (thanks Greg!) to Born Free 4 where it made it's debut this past weekend.
