Skyler is born.
The journey of taking on the build of this year’s Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club (VVMC) raffle rally bike started a few short months ago in May. Throughout the process of building Skyler, I constantly had a few questions shuffling around my head: Who would be the lucky winner? How far would they live from me? Would they take care of her? Well, September 13th finally came and the outcome couldn’t have been better.
I knew from VVMC member, Shannon Sweeney’s experience of building last year’s bike it wouldn’t be a small feat with such little time. Thanks to Shannon who pulled a 1973 run down cb350 from his shop, had a few brothers tear it down and transport it all to my garage (Prospect Shop) where the build commenced not long after.
Right away I envisioned this bike as a low, mean and fast “brat style” ride with a few touches of other influential bits. The first thing was to shorten the rear and add a loop with a slight upward bend, de-tab anything that was not needed and build a seat pan that went along the new clean lines of the frame. After a trip to M&K Metal I started fabricating.
I took the motor down to the crank so I could add new oil seals, check for wear and install a new timing chain. In addition to this I installed a new and updated cam chain tensioner (slider type) to replace the old crappy plastic roller version. Also, new valves, piston, rings, resurfaced head and all new gaskets were installed.
Thanks to recommendations from cb350 guru Chad Williams there are some neat little things on this bike that help its performance. I went with a 520 chain to lighten the drive train up a little and geared it so it not only has some power around town but also will have some left in the top end.
When the time came to give away the bike, we chose a shy little girl from the crowd to come on stage to reach in the raffle basket and pick the winner from over 2,000 entries. Out of all the people in the world that could have won, the proud winner turned out to be Sex In the City actor, Jason Lewis. Ironically, earlier that day Jason had told me, “Scott, if I win that bike I am going to give it to my friend Sheenon,” and that’s exactly what happened. The second Jason accepted his win he grabbed the mic and announced to the crowd that he was giving the bike to his buddy who was left standing speechless in front of the stage. I will never forget that moment and am glad for the fact that Skyler will have a good home here in Los Angeles.
Thanks to my VVMC brothers, friends, and everyone else who helped and have been so supportive throughout this process.

Those Firestone tires are useless on a bike. Also as far as the actual video, the choice of music is strange. That is very scary movie, unnerving, eerie music. Was hard to continue to watch, I forced myself to watch to the end
Hit the uber kool with a K facial hair boutique on Man pamper days
and hang out near the local chunky motolumber check shirt
emporium when host a bad day at black rock fashion day be a
good place to start , check the back of vans for these "rolling"
artwork bikes , Joke guys keep at it not all about how much
Nice work and I really enjoyed it but not sure why there's a whole community out there so anxious to bog down on each and every occasion, like it's defining them. Not sure what qualifies being a true "builder" to be honest, even Indian Larry (my hero forever) had stuff done by others ...In the end all vids will end up being barred from comments if folks cannot resist spitting venom ..
Bob Gregor helped Scotty deal in a few things as well getting the bike dialed in... he's got a shop across the street from the Garage Company in Inglewood Ca. The shop is named Moto Classic... great shop and Bob is a bike wizard.
With all the Ass kicking screaming Old bikes you could have used .. YOU picked the single worst DOG of all.. Not the BSA or the Triumph 650 or even an old Norton ... No ,, you picked the Honda ???? WTF Dude....
+Thomas yates do you plate your own parts? do you machine every nut and bolt? do you forge your own raw steel?
if you are using a welder and hand tools to make parts of the bike, your building. not just buying jellybean parts and assembling the lego set.
This has got to be theeeeee strangest, the weirdest, the creepiest slice of video I have ever seen. It's like an old B or C spooky show. From the creepy music, to the creepy actors playing the "BRO's". Gave me the heeby geebies, boooy. Are they making fun of homosexuals? And the character "Sheenon." Who and the heck made that up? They got their weird on but I don't really understand this type of comic relief....if that is, in fact, what it is. No more dope smoking at community college film school, boooys'.
The bike came out beautiful. The narration and music however, were far too dramatic and there wasn't any real work getting done in the video. There's talk of trying to get the rear loop to fit and it comes off as the hardest challenge of the build yet it literally takes a few minutes to cut and fit a tail section like that. If there's going to be more episodes, I hope there's more actual fabrication and building involved with them There's been more than enough drama based automotive "shows" and not enough for the actual bike builders or people interested in fabrication. Whatever way you plan to take the series, good luck with it!
FAKings casting: Lecciones para convertir a una muñeca de cristal en una maquina del sexo.
Vemos entrar a Angelina por la puerta y al verla tan frágil y tierna, algo nos hace pensar que lo mejor sera no aprovecharse mucho de esta chica e incluso abortar la situación. Mas adelante, y a medida que avanza la entrevista, nos damos cuenta que Angelina sabe a lo que viene y viene a lo que viene.
Casa, comida y sexo. Katy, la “Aquarius” de los sin papeles en Madrid.
Calurosa mañana de finales de Mayo, David y Luciano se plantean la posibilidad de cazar a una chica con la escusa de que Luciano es un chico argentino recién llegado a España , sin papeles, sin casa, sin dinero para comer y que la única solución rápida que tiene es participar en un casting porno por el que le pagaran . Pero necesita una chica que grabe con él y llevarla a los estudios de FAKings donde también le pagaran 200€ por hacer un casting porno. Hasta aquí, nada que no hayamos hecho antes y, aunque costandonos, no nos haya salido mal. Pero este caso es diferente, peculiar, ya que Katy empatiza con la situación de Luciano y le invita a su casa a pasar unos días mientras encuentra "algo".
Abortamos la idea de ir al estudio y ofrecemos a Luciano esconder unas cámaras en su mochila para grabar lo que pueda suceder en la habitación de Katy . La solidaridad de Katy no conoce fronteras y al poco de llegar a su casa los dos ya se están dando el primer lote. Se nota que esta chica estaba loca por pillar una buena polla , o que sabe alimentar muy bien a los necesitados ;)
