Seth in the Hole! On his Grizz. Looking forward to summer!
Hey, y'all. First, thanks to everyone who dropped in on prints -- super appreciated.
I'm on the road for a little longer, hanging out with fashion people who do fashion things because that's how I pay my rent. But I have the prints in hand... they will be shipping as soon as I'm back at home at Kitty Kat Ranch. Promise. Consider yourself updated.
I only took one photo at the LOVE show last weekend. It was of Kip's newly built pan. For sure the sweetest new bike to hit my eyes at the show. Everyone else on the interweb took photos of bikes there. Instead, the few photos I took were on the road or at Lo Lo's.
I love Phoenix this time of year. Makes me miss my ol hometown. Thanks Short Fuse and Tone for providing such good company.
Moto Monday was pretty calm this month! Stories came home from the Love Cycles Show. Utah County fools made the 40 (freeway) mile mission in the COLD and were stoked to be there! We had a visitor on vaca from SF that popped in and told stories of her moto adventures. A solid turn out and good conversing this MM. See ya next month fools!
Our good friend, Sean (of Grim Cycle Salvage), clipped a tree while snowboarding last Sunday. He snapped his arm clean, right below a plate he already had from a previous injury.
Sean owns and runs Grim Cycle Salvage with his wife and boys, and is one of the best HD wrenches I've ever met. Dude knows his shit.
As the owner of a small business, though, he's had to scrimp to make ends meet. He's been runnin' on the edge, and has been living without health insurance. To fix his arm, Sean needs a specialized surgeon, and thus far, all the qualified surgeons he's contacted refuse to work on him without a 50% down payment...
On a $19,000 surgery, that's a LOT of fucking dough.
Needless to say, Sean isn't sitting on that kind of cash.
It's been a full week now since the accident. Bone starts to die after about 14 days... homie needs to get into surgery, pronto. Dude's dedicated his entire life to wrenching on Harley's --- being a one-armed mechanic would definitely be a hinderance to his business.
We're trying to help a brother out.
THIS WEEK ONLY, we'll be offering a batch of signed and super-limited-edition photo prints. I've got 5 images I'll be offering in a limited-edition run of 5 prints/each. All these prints are 18"x12", so they're perfect to frame and stick in an office... big enough to stand out, but not so big that you need to dedicate and entire wall to 'em.
These prints are priced to move at $60 each.
OR... if you're a big spender and you wanna maximize the help you're throwin' to Sean, I'm also offerin' up the image below as a signed and super-mega-limited-edition OF TWO ONLY, and it's sized to pop... 36"x24" --- that's movie poster size.
These two huge prints are priced at $200.
ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS PRINT SALE WILL BE DONATED TO SEAN AND HIS FAMILY TO HELP GET THAT SURLY MOTHERFUCKER UNDER THE KNIFE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
So help a brother out. He's a dad and a mechanic... he needs a fucking arm, duh.
If you wanna buy a print for the cause, hit me via email:
STONE at BLACKLIST VISUAL dot COM
OR... for those who would rather just donate directly without having to deal with my stupid prints: Sean's wife, Cat, has set up a PayPal account where donations can be made directly...
That address is CATHYMJORDAN at YAHOO dot COM
Make a note on there that Bolts sent ya'. Just cause.
We had been ripping up and down this strip with skids, surfs and hand drags, when a nice looking woman pulled up in her Escalade and showed true concern for our safety, not the "Stop Now!" concern, but the sweet soft voice type of concern, Dave was sucked into her scene in about half a second, as his face can clearly attest. Then she drove off! Sorry Dave.
