KullY in the new issue of IRON WORKS!!!


So my boy Kully is killing it!!!! He has been apprenticing at EFAB and I have come to know him not only as a fine craftsmen/fabricator, but also as an extremely sweet and thoughtful person (not to mention a damn fine looking lad).  He is working around the clock on his latest build putting time in on every component with impressive results. 
THe article in Iron Works features the bike he had at the AMD's in Sturgis. Very tasteful and clean and it was his first full build! Stay tuned for his next bike. It will blow you away.
Also get your hands on this issue of Iron Works for more info/pics.
His blog is:

AleXanDeR HanKoFF short 'REFRACTIONS' with HR head harness


www.vimeo.com/Hankoff
Just click on the first video to the right of ALex's pic. 'Refractions'

THanks to Fredo Montes the stylist who chose my work for the shoot & Alexander Hankoff for making such an epic film!

ALexander is an amazing artist. As a graduate of both the International Center of Photography and New York Film Academy, Alexander's unique vision is captured in both photography and motion pictures. The young artist's work has caught the eye of progressive clients such as Apple, Dior, Droid, Scion, MasterCard, Johnson & Johnson and The Gap, as well as many international fashion and beauty magazines.

Alexander Hankoff

Fredo is a native new yorker... a product of nyc nightlife. he is heavily influenced by the artistic works of andy warhol and keith haring, the photography of helmut newton and robert maplethorpe, and the music and style of grace jones and madonna. "living in nyc has afforded me the opportunity to have met each one of my idols." 
For many years, he has assisted a veritable "who's who" of fashion editors and stylists on a variety of projects: from glossy editorials to luxury advertising campaigns, runway shows in bryant park to red carpet events, music videos to indie film. Somewhere along the line, he has slowly transitioned into making a name for himself as a fashion stylist... working on his own projects... doing his own thing. though he has a penchant for menswear, he likes to "play dress up with women" every now and then.

Fredo Montes
Fredo Montes, stylist, represents the true attitude of a native New Yorker with his quick wit and unrestricted tongue. He asserts, “I am a native New Yorker and I am just not that easily impressed”.

 This is a still from the film showing HR head gear.

Photo ShooT for BounD by InK



Two nights ago in Torrance, CA amongst the wrecked Ferrari from Dr. Dre's 'I need a Doctor' video, a photo shoot was happening. It was for an upcoming issue of                    Bound by Ink. Champagne and brown booze were flowing freely.  Editor John Jarasa     shot some pics on his camera that were super sonic. I found these on his site badcopnodonuts.com

I'll keep you posted on the photo shoot for BBI by Andy Hartmark!!!

GeaRing Up!!!!


So I know I have been lagging big time. Lagging on the blog, but not workwise.
Been mad busy getting ready for the Invitational, restocking stores, and getting ready for an L.A. trip.
I am also having a very special visitor coming to stay for the month to help me with my marketing...
So, I have been making things that need to be shot before they end up elsewhere in the world.
When I have, I will post 'em......

Will def have some Brooklyn Invitational footage, as well.
Come out to the DiCE party the night before the show @ Gutter, too!

RiKKi RockeTT rocks HR LeatheR!!!!

SWEET CUFF.

RIKKI & I
ROCK STARS!

SO as always, Sturgis was off the chain. SOrry I haven't posted until now, but I was waiting to get these pics off from my buddies camera. Got to spend quality time with some of my favorite people and shoot the shit with some new found comrades. Just when you think there isn't anybody new worth knowing....

As a Poison fan I was stoked to meet Rikki Rockett (who changed his name in the 80's because, in his words, 'I was committed.' I like that certainty in a person. I didn't realize it was him till he handed me his card to pay for the cuff..... I told him that I had Open Up and Say Ahh on vinyl back in the day. Wow, was I dating myself. This was before DJing became mainstream and you could still buy records in the chain music stores.

Wish I still had it!
In fact, wish I still had my whole vinyl collection that an old friend/roommate made off with upon moving out. Fuck Face.

I have many more images & stories to report on from this most excellent week, but you can't have them all right now.  You're gonna have to stay tuned in......

It's on Lazelle close to the AMD tent. I am fortunate enough to be hanging with Eastern Fabrications and badass Dale from Mad Jap Customs. www.customcorners.com LOTS of new merch. Come check it out and chill on the couch with us!!! New cast bronze FTW buckles and sweet hooks for wallet chains. The hooks were the last weak link in my construction. I bought them out of a company in OHio, but I am sure they didn't make 'em there. Now I can say for sure All 'Merican!!!!
