Some people paint for the fun of it, others for the pay it provides and others to
escape the everyday monotony of it all. Painting can be a salvation when life is
not quite what you want it to be. It can be a place to flee, a place of comfort.
It can also be a way to release the tensions caused by a non-stop flow of
frustrating events or to denounce a society led by money where the human spirit
is side winded.
It is with this frustration in his heart that Pascal Malorni-Reniere, AKA Juice,
upcoming airbrush artist in Quebec, started his painting career. His first
encounter with the airbrush was with one of its distant cousin, the spray can.
Juice started sneaking out at night, letting his anger out by doing graffiti under
bridges and on every wall he could find. First just spilling paint on walls to
release his anguish, his art slowly emerged, overtime gaining a certain ...

Hello again… we have done a lot
of “tech talk” in the past (and will
continue to do so in the future) but
to benefit from all that tech, you
must first own a two-wheeled
This article is aimed at the newer
riders that will soon join our ranks as well as to the
established ones who want to change their personal bikes.
Many of my friends from the road have showed up at my
shop with their brand new machines only to realize (after
talking with them a little while) that they bought the wrong
bike for the type of riding that they wanted to do. So this
month’s technical column is dedicated to picking a V-twin
iron sled that’s just right for your riding style.
Robin Finlayson, a native of northern Canada
has always had a passion for riding. Regardless the
medium – snow, water or asphalt – Big Rob has
always been full-speed ahead, relying purely on
instinct. After spending his late teens and early
twenties as a rider on the Bud Pro Water Ski Tour,
Rob returned to his Saskatchewan hometown to
raise a family and search for his next creative outlet.
Enter the inspiration needed to build his first chopper.
Flipping through a custom motorcycle magazine Rob
saw the raw lines of a West Coast Chopper CFL rigid
and knew it would be the centrepiece of his creation.
“My plan for the bike was clear right away, light, fast
and clean; that’s what drew me to the CFL.” After a
quick call to the guys at West Coast Choppers, Rob’s
frame was northward bound.

« DAMN INTERNET »
Keeping me from fixing up my house,
stopping me from crawling underneath
my car to fix it. Hell, I haven’t shoveled the
snow from my balcony in more that three
weeks. I should be given a gold metal
for all the surfing I’ve done! Damn Internet…
“I love that damn Internet”! How else would
I see the coolest two-wheelers from around
the planet? How else would I find the
hottest custom parts for my chopper
projects? How else would I have found
the most interesting motorcycle rally I’ve
attended in a long time?
Checking out vintage motorcycle parts one
day not to long ago, I stumbled upon a site
with a very interesting name. It was called
the “Old Bastards Vintage Motorcycle Club”.
I couldn’t help but crack up. Talk about
getting to the point. There was
no mistaking what these guys
were all about, I thought! While
reading a little more ...
CRAFTSMANSHIP is a big word and when I think about this word I usually
always think about QUALITY. I believe these two words go hand in hand.
Without the element of quality the meaning of craftsmanship would be
insignificant. A craftsman is someone who can make something by hand
with great skill and expertise. In today’s world of mass production and
excess, craftsmanship seems to be bordering on the endangered species
list. Fortunately for us in the custom motorcycle world craftsmanship is an
essential ingredient when it comes to creating jaw dropping, eye-popping
machines that get our adrenaline flowing.
Randy Briley of Prescott, Ontario, is considered
to be a craftsman. Randy is the hands-on owner
of custom parts maker B’ COOL Products.
As a kid in Toronto, Randy got his start back in
1975. With a Sears paint gun and a can of paint,
Randy made seventy-five bucks ...
