Sam's Shovel Nightmare Tins.

Speaking of turning on the way back machine, a long lost project has re-emerged. See March 2008's archive and the article titled "This Shit Will Fuck You Up." Well that bike is nearing completion and these are the Robert Pradke (Indian Larry) painted tins that adorn it. Now, if you're saying to yourself, "that looks like a tank Billy Lane would make," then right you are. Brother Billy added his touch to Sam's personal project with this space age gas tank. We think Robert nailed it with these candies. Coming to the streets of O-Town soon.

Robert can be contacted via the link below.

Remembering The A-Town Ape.

So as long as revisionist history's the order of the day, we take a look back at "The A-Town Ape." Fortunately this bike ended up in good hands. For that we are thankful. Ronnie (Fishbone) bought it and has been making the pavement rattle ever since. Enjoy the ride brother!!!

Color Me Gone.

"Color Me Gone," but not forgotten, as is the case with "Chupacabra." While this evo powered, narrow glide monster only roamed A-Towns streets for a short time, it left a lasting impression on soccer moms and false bikers. Fear and loathing were in full effect, as haters cringed at the thunderous red chopper, laying waste to their "Stepford" like neighborhoods. Another triumph for Machete's Chopper Shop.

A-Town Ape.

Sam's 2001 Custom Harley Fat Boy® The "A-Town Ape is 4_sale. Fast as FUCK!!! This Twin Cam dream machine will destroy any comparable bike from light to light and cruise down the highway in comfort too. The Baker 6 speed transmission will make those extended puts almost vibration free at low RPM's. The race built engine will give you the edge on all comers who dare to drag. Fresh custom paint combined with low miles make this hella loud monster the belle of the ball. Contact Sam via e-mail for info and pricing.


The "Chupacabra" chopper is finished and 4-sale. This 110" Evo speed machine is 100% insurable and road ready. BDL open top fuel primary, 6 speed transmission, custom paint, with many extras.

Try to remember this: what you project Is what you will perceive; what you perceive With any passion, be it love or terror, May take on whims and powers of its own. Therefore a numb and grudging circumspection Will serve you best — unless you overdo it,Watching your step too narrowly, refusing To specify a world, shrinking your purview To a tight vision of your inching shoes,Which may, as soon as you come to think, be crossing An unseen gorge upon a rotten trestle.

Just a quick snapshot of a work in progress. 103" S&S HC engine with plenty of power. Baker six speed, suicide clutch. The usual good stuff. Evil, wicked, mean and nasty. Little John, and Easy E have been working overtime to make shit happen. Xtreme cycle tech in A-Town rules!!! Yes that is a Billy Lane Choppers Inc tank too. Getting ready to send it out to Custom Auto Design in Eastford CT for some of that slamming kool chemical skin. Not quite sure which of the many paint ideas we'll use, but Robert is used to that by now. Laz did some bad ass paint for another bike which I'll post a blog for soon. I hope everyone is ready to throw down this summer and show that choppers are for life!!! C.F.L.
