Seat I did for brian harlow

Finished this seat up yesterday for his bike the ,"searcher". It was nothing too fancy but I think the overall appearance of the seat is damn near perfection as far as fit and finish. Can't wait to see it on there. Brian is the kind of guy that builds really functional bikes with a style all his own. Each one that he has built is pretty but meant to ride as well. Can't wait to see it done.

Black Devil MC

Things have been getting a little busy around here at the leather shop so I started kicking around the idea of hiring someone to help me my mom and my brother keep up with all of the orders. So, "Cole" the owner of this jacket showed quite a bit of interest in working for me after I had casually mentioned it to him, Shortly there after I hired him, He seems to be a natural at this sort of thing and since he is so in to bikes, He's a perfect fit. Anyways back to the jacket. Cole traded a motorcycle for this jacket, a Kawasaki 450 that he payed a meager sum for to a guy named Kris Mosby. Kris apparently inherited the jacket from his uncle ,"Wolf" who was in the Black Devil MC. The Black Devil mc was an all black club in the 60's and 70's. The jacket is a genuine Harley Davidson jacket and is an amazing piece with amazing artwork to boot.

This a compilation of cool footage mostly having to do with how I spent my summer. Most of which was having to with motorcycles. Some of it does not really have anything to do with bikes but, oh well. Mainly its just an exercise in editing animation and camera angles. the song was also Written and recorded by me in my home studio. Its called No society.
the video was shot in NYC, Tennessee, Missouri, And Illinois. I am really pleased with how it turned out for just kind of throwing it together with allot of the cool footage i had stocked up on over the summer months Enjoy!
