I watched it once already, its good, I need to watch it again to pick up on details but you can learn from this. I have been around body guys and painters and didnt learn as much as I did just watching this DVD. Fritz did his thing here, really breaks it down! Pick up a copy, you'll dig it!

It took a year. But me an Nick and the rest of the boys at the Butcher Shop finished the wood bike. The past week we had three different photogs with three different styles do three different photoshoots of it. Here are some of the best from each. None of them ever shot a bike before. Holla back fellas, let me know what you think.
Jesse takes pics of weddings and what not.
Josh runs a VW e-zine called Gengstout.com
Matt Poirier is a photo artist type
Dallas Dave Melo came through on gettin the broad for that last one. We gotta look through those proofs an pic the best ones. Then we'll have them with no watermark.

These rules were developed by myself and Christian from Xian Leather:
Just be PC, like all the other badass beard wielding bikers now a days, talk about IT but don’t DO IT!!!!
wear Converse and a Plaid shirt
don’t break laws!
get your nails done also... and use your $500 phone while im there....
And take a little bit of cash out from your trust fund but be sure to tell the story about how when you were 2 your father did a wheelie on his chopped knucklehead while you were sitting on the tank and how you grew up in the middle of the dessert wearing a Mexican blanket cause your mom was a hippy and your father was an outlaw biker.
And how Banditos charged the House and my dad and his "bros" kicked the shit out of all of em.. and during the scuffle the Porsche 911 got a scratch on the bonnet..
Yeah and how you didn’t start to learn how to speak until you were 7 but you were doing oil changes on your old man’s 50 Ford when you were two and you are a master TIG welder and you taught Jesse James how to use an English wheel
and then explain why I have girly hands with no scars and nails cleaner that a brand new plate glass window...
And why it’s a known fact your father is really a big shot criminal defense attorney and your mother grew up in Freehold NJ. And why two years ago your were living in a loft in Manhattan and now have a two car garage, Im sorry, shop in Williamsburg, spend $150 on the plaid shirt your wearing and have a poster of Jason Jessee hangin in your room but really not quite sure who he is.
And I secretly watch OCC reruns with my friends as we drink Watermelon latte's and eat crumpets... on the Ethan Allen furniture My dad paid for...
Oh yeah make sure that duck ass is spot on for the shoot!
Brand new Boots, no scuffs.... Belt is mandatory! American express GOLD to pay for photo shoot lunch...
3inch thick watch band that holds my $10 G Tag Heuer ...
Make sure you are a member of The Jockey Journal and have a user name that is the name of "your shop"

My momma talkin' to me tryin' to tell me how to live
But I don't listen to her 'cause my head is like a sieve
My daddy, he disowned me 'cause I wear my sister's clothes
He caught me in the bathroom with a pair of pantyhose
My basketball coach, he done kicked me off the team
For wearin' high-heel sneakers and actin' like a queen
The world's comin' to an end, I don't even care
As long as I can have a limo and my orange hair
And it don't bother me if people think I'm "funny"
'Cause I'm a big rock star and I'm makin' lots of money
money, money, money, money, money, money
Ahhh! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...
I'm so bloody rich! Ha ha ha ha
I own apartment buildings and shopping centers! Ha ha ha ha
And I only know three chords! Ha ha ha ha

Starting to look like a bike, I had to re-radius the fender a bit, got one side metal finished, go the struts done, the seat mounted and the tail light on. This weekend I hope to finish the pipes and forwards and start breaking this down for paint. I still have to get the broken exhaust studs out of the heads, move the feed, drain and return on the oil tank, since its a big twin tank the chain will wack them and I have to re make the battery tray since it wont fit up top with this fender. Almost there.
