Was a great turnout at the Beachville swap meet. Had a lot of fun hanging out with my friend and bro. Jay, Sold a few items and just enjoyed myself. I love meeting the people at these events. It's nice to see some old faces but even nicer to see some new ones. everyone has neat stories of which I really enjoy hearing and sharing information. Special thanks to the Devils Regiment MC for putting on the event.
So we will be updating our list of events you can catch us at as the year gets going. You will most certainly see us at these shows below.

On a lighter note the shop always seems busy these days. The hustle and bustle of the day sometimes gets the best of us but for the most part the work relaxes me. I like to create things. Make stuff out of thin air, and let my imagination get the best of me, I love what I do.
It's also nice to see the support coming from the motorcycle community, esp. The M/C's & 1%er's who have been instrumental in getting our name out and helping us build a business based on solid products. I think to myself where is this company going? and then I think am I bloody crazy for trying to compete with the Chinese crap. But when I see these guys going down the road on there tricked out bikes and see parts that I made. That came out of my head. It re-affirms that there is a place for quality and personal service left in this industry.
So we were at the Paris national Bike rally last weekend, We really had a good time, we got to meet lots of interesting people and even got to ride around on a pook. Which is a sears motorcycle with a side car. The old panhead made the journey without any hiccups as per usual and I had a lot of fun riding her all weekend. Special thanks out to those who came out to support us this weekend. We will bring manufacturing back to it's roots by making products that last a life time. one bike at a time. and a special thanks to our apprentice Allycia who managed to make our booth somewhat approachable. As those who have met me will know I have a slightly intimidating demeanor as I've been told.
So Here goes nothing, I created this blog as a way educate the average motorcycle enthusiast about what goes into quality parts for there motorcycle. Why we in north america should purchase products our neighbors/friends make. It's no secret I am a Canadian. I will purchase Canadian products first. If I can't find it made in Canada the I will try the United States, England, and even in one case Australia. If I was American, I would be inclined to buy American first . I support my country and in the words of stomp-in Tom. "If you don't believe your country should come before yourself you can better serve your country by living somewhere else." Well there you have it my short introduction. Maybe I will come up with something useful to write about sometime this week. I had a Chroming incident that may get close attention.
