Sportster of a Mr. Clownshoe


A document of the transition of a timid effeminate man with a new Harley-Davidson that is trying to fit in by changing his stock seat to a Rich Phillips seat all the while being berated and belittled by a band of hardcore bikers that listen to hard rock music and drink beer and abuse illicit drugs. After receiving his seat he is transformed in to a normal masculine awesome man.

Custom Cafe Bike Seat


Custom Cafe Bike Seat, originally uploaded by Richard Grabbe.

Rich made a seat pan for his customer to sit snugly in the cowl. Then he did an old school diamond pleat on suede. The Suede will help the rider from sliding around.
Bike is Benjamin Hegvik of St. Louis Mo.

I was asked at the last minute to photo the event. I usually do video so I didn't have a flash. But some of the photos turned out really well

A Sportster can fit in a Honda Element!


, originally uploaded by Richard Grabbe.

Who knew my sportster would fit in my wife's Honda Element. Here's the story, took The Blade out for a ride and got some bad gas and I started have some Carb problems. I was about an hour away from home and my wife happened to be close by visiting a friend and she dropped by and helped me lift it in the back of the Element. The back closed and everything.
