ULTIMATE AIR AFFAIR 2011 - USA

Did you know that there’s an Arabian Nights tale for airbrush artists? Let me tell you about this new version entitled “Alibaba and the Magic Airbrush Cave”.

The famous magic cave is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. In fact this place is called Aset and the event I had been invited to attend was called the Ultimate Air Affair.

In a huge warehouse sat several Hot Rods, extreme custom bikes and an exhibition hall, plus everything related to airbrush beyond imagination.

SCHLAGLOCH, BUCA, GRAMA, KUIL, BACHE, RASTEIRA, NID DE POULE.

These are some of the words used just before a swear word and their meaning is POT HOLE! Where I’m from we deal with the worst roads in the country and plenty of swear words are used when describing them. Just ask any Quebec rider! Sometimes I feel like I’m riding a rodeo bull that has his balls tied to his tail. So this brings me to the subject at hand – Suspensions.

I’m going to bring you back to when you were knee high to a Brussels sprout. Remember riding your bicycle with rigid front and rear wheels? The way you created suspension was raising yourself off the seat and using your legs as shocks. That worked pretty good back then but hey, now you’re older and

Ticking Time Bomb

By Chris Valagao (Heathen) / Bob Lund

This story starts like many others. I’ve been messing around with motorcycles since I was twelve. My grandmother’s house was across the street from a club wrench that was a bit of a big-twin guru. At a very young age I was influenced by the British Columbia chopper style. Rigid, wide glide, trailer fenders, sporty gas tank and shotgun pipes. I’d watch those bikes roar up and down the street with pretty young things sitting on the p-pads and I’d say to myself “one day I’m gonna have one”! Fast forward to the early nineties; my hunt was on. Checking the local classifieds every week I found that all the big twins were way out of my price range. Then when I came across an ad for a BSA lightning chopper, I didn’t waste any time. I drove for a couple of hours to see the thing and what I found was a hard tail frame, twisted springer, an engine and a mustang tank. There were also milk crates full of trashed crap but it was a good start. The guy selling it was a mountain of a guy and he wanted fifteen hundred dollars for it. I told him all I had was a thousand bucks so with a growl he said “okay, if you promise to ride it and not sell it”!

A.L. CHOPPERS; A Family Tradition

Since the early 1960s Al Patterson has enjoyed the great adventures of motorcycling. In 1964, at age fourteen, he ran an old 45 cubic inch Harley- Davidson Flathead. Being a native of Toronto and hanging around “the village” his foresight into custom bike building was greatly influenced by the likes of the local motorcycle club members who rode incredible looking machines. Al customized his first bike by shooting it with a custom paint job and having the front end completely chromed. His second bike was a brand new Triumph Bonneville which he rode for two years until the urge was overwhelming – some serious chopping ensued.

In the late 1960s Al took a few trips to the United States. It was at this time that Al fortunately witnessed firsthand the beginnings of an extraordinary culture, the chopper culture to be more precise. This was also the time that iconic magazines like Street Chopper and Easyriders were just starting out. These magazines greatly influenced the new chopper lifestyle. Hardly anything was going on in Canada when it came to custom bikes but Al was so excited about the new phenomenon that he started doing what
