LOVE ZOMBIE

LOVE ZOMBIE


In memory of Indian Larry

By Konstantine Zakzanis - Photographs: Kevin Rosenthall

It is one thing to live by a creed, and it is another to actually

“live” by a creed. “In God We Trust - Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord - No Fear…”

These were the words that graced “Indian” Larry Desmedt’s neck, a tattoo that served as his creed, his trademark. He had placed it on his neck just below his chin with the letters of the middle two lines in reverse so that he could read them when looking in a mirror. This was his constant reminder that life should be lived without fear.

And “Indian Larry” – as he was known by – lived life. More life than you or I will ever live no matter how long our biological vehicles decide to remain on our rides and travel the roads we are destined to travel.

Triple Six

Triple Six


by Jean-François Roy
It all began more than a decade ago when he bought a t-shirt at his favourite Canadian custom bike shop, Speedtrix, located in Saint-André d’Argenteuil in Quebec. At the time his budget didn’t allow him any higher expenditure. A few years later and after a lot of “saving up”, it was time to buy the frame that was sitting in the corner of the shop. He placed the frame along with the 300 mm tire he purchased that same day in his living room where it sat for the next few months. Voila! The project was officially started. Over the years he acquired several other parts and even received some as gifts from his family and his girlfriend who encouraged him in his new undertaking. He made regular visits to the shop so that he could thumb through the catalogues or just admire the other bikes.

After some time, the rolling chassis was completed and the work of the artists that solidify Speedtrix’s reputation was to begin to shape metal and build a bike to their customer’s taste. This customer didn’t have the budget that others may have had, but he did have patience. The prolonged process paid off in the end because the work done on this bike is stunning.

There’s Gold in them Wheels…
This is a story that begins in a place some call Cayo Hueso, translated literally as “Bone Key”, and known to you as Key West, Florida. Roughly five hundred years after its discovery, its 2005 and five friends are out on a ride. David, Jack, Moby, Kurt and master bike builder George Tchor from Kreater Custom Motorcycles are kicking asphalt, soaking up the Key West sun, enjoying a couple of Corona’s and scheming about what else but motorcycles. The guys decided that they would stage a biker build-off amongst themselves. The catch: they couldn’t exceed the set twenty thousand dollar budget. The winner would be decided by a people’s choice vote and the prize would be a vacation paid for by the losers of the competition.

So it began. Each proceeded with his own unique project. Given the budget constraints, it was a bit of an “ugly duckling” endeavor. The first competitor to break the chains of financial restraints was David. Without blinking an eye he screamed the words “FUCK THE BUDGET”! One restraint David couldn’t escape though was time. That’s where Kreater came in and helped ...

INSANE CUSTOMS
Trying to get a hold of David Medoro to do this article was like trying to catch a shadow! Just when I thought I had him pinned down for a minute, “WHAM”, he was gone again! Just a day in the life of a proud custom bike shop owner! This is one busy dude that has to divide his time between taking customers calls, receiving newly acquired bikes, working with his parts counter guys, mechanics and clothing store staff, not to mention spending time at the clinic with his kids! Ok, I take that back, he ain’t busy, he’s insanely busy!

Insane Customs opened for business on the northwest side of Edmonton, Alberta in February of 2009, and since that day it has never stopped evolving. Being the Canadian distributor for Big Bear Choppers since December of 2008 it was inevitable that David would need a place to showcase his two-wheeled California beauties. This is how the 124th Street became the location to house not only Kevin Alsop’s (BBC) great products but to also offer total maintenance and custom fabrication services. Within a year and a half David’s shop became the world leader in sales of completely DOT approved Big Bear products. David worked harder and faster than a prairie twister to become a full-fledged dealership. Today Insane Customs also offers Saxon Motorcycles, like-new H-D’s, Royal Enfield’s, bikes on...
