So some how between all the madness I found some time to work on my tank for the Born Free Vans Gas tank give away promo! Lets see if I can pull this off... There are 7 different artists, that were chosen to paint a gas tank for the Born Free show as a Vans promotional. 6 of the tanks will be given away and only one will be picked by the spectators in a vote at the show, for Vans to use for their promos/advertising/website, etc. So if you bought a ticket for the 2 Shovelhead give aways, then you are automatically eligible to win on of the 6 Vans gas tanks. Make sure you vote!!!

I stopped by West Whittier Paint, where I get all my paint supplies. I ran into an old friend, a great man. His name is Porky... I've known this man since I was little kid, maybe 5 years old. My earliest memories were of him hangin out with my dad at our house in Whittier and other little biker parties and get togethers my father would have at the house. Porky has lived a life that could be written and made into movie, no joke! I have a tremendous amount of respect for this man, and glad to call him my friend. A true biker, innovator and great soul with the kindest heart. Here's a video of Trevelen from SuperCo explaining the engineering and innovations during the 1950s by a group of bike builders from East LA and Porky.

Went to my friends Roy and Rene's shop the other weekend, to print my shirts. We started off good with first 2 dozen. Then we had some technical difficulties with the Roy's machine. So we had to turn to the professional, our friend Arie. We knocked the rest of them out in one night. Big thanks to my friends Roy and Arie for stepping up to help me out!!! And of course, to my girlfriend Nicole for helping me with designing the art work and everything else! They will be available soon through this blog and my vendor booth at the Born Free Show, on June 30th. I hope you get one and thanks for the support!
