Well, I’m not gonna lie. This month we’ve been getting ready for “Howl N Prowl 2017”, and I just didn’t get my shit together to have a bike feature. Good news is I have a few pics that I have been wanting to share. They are either ones that didn’t fit for a feature, some black and white versions, a few random and a couple we’ve already shared. Looking back through all the pics I’ve taken over the last year was a humbling reminder of all the great people, great bikes, and the great times I was lucky enough to have. We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Bisbee on the 20th for HNP.
This is a BnW version from our first ever bike feature. One of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken. Dennis was one of the first people I met that was into old bikes in our area, and has been a true and loyal friend.
This is a BnW version of our buddy Brent’s knuckle(last years best chopper at Howl N Prowl)from the feature we did on it earlier this year. The opening pic is of Brent also, taken at the same shoot. I really like the way the chrome fish tails and heads stand out in this shot. Brent has been a die hard supporter of the events we put together and has a pretty darn neat scooter as well. Not to mention a beautiful family(Jennifer and Bodie)who tolerate the weekends filled with break downs, chopper parties, and general “old shit shennanigans”
Ha! Here’s a good one. This is what happens to your chopper when you enter the desert scramble in Naco!! Joe’s absolutely amazing Ironhead was looking pretty rough. Makes me chuckle every time I see this one.
Ahhhh. The coolest of the cool. George is the man. Period. One of the nicest humans I have ever met. So talented, so humble, and like I said…coolest of the cool. I was and still am so stoked on this shot. To be able to hang and take some pics of one of my idols was amazing, and then to capture this moment in this way, is over the top.
Another BnW version from the feature on Eddy Lewis’s shovel. Ed and Gabe chillin’ in the back ground. Another example of the great people that I’ve been lucky enough to rub elbows with. In Ed’s own words, “Motorcycle people….the best”
A great pic of Joe’s Ironhead, before the race! I love the post monsoon glow in this shot and how Joe n Tiny are bull shitting in the back ground. Fond memories of a great moment in time.
Here’s one that didn’t make the feature on Scott’s Pan. That grin is his “riding my Panhead” grin. Scott has been a big big part of Old Shit Rules behind the scenes. Humble and Quiet, no one would ever know how much he does not only for us, but the community in general. A man of his word. A man who loves to ride. It’s been a real blessing to hook up with him. Love this guy and love that Pan!
Handle Bars! I didn’t realize till I put all these photos together that three of my favorite shots over the last year were of handle bars. The top is Ian’s XS, middle is Tiny’s Shovel, and third is of “Conrad’s Knuckle” that George rebuilt.
This is a great shot of the Super B on my great friend Hank’s Ironhead. Something about this photo really grabbed me. Its one of my all time favorites.
These are some random pictures I took at Tiny and Hanks garage trying to learn camera shit. Didn’t realize at the time I would get some cool shots too! I especially love the one with the motor out of the frame. The Panhead looks so stoic…as indeed it should.
This BnW version of Bruces UL I really like. The location was so cool and the clouds amazing. I also love how the I-Beam and primary shine like a diamond in a goats ass! Harley Fuckin’ Davidson.
