4q69 “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will” – George Bernard Shaw-. Delivered @brad0667 his stroked 84" Panhead. Everything got massaged a bit on this bike, but it still has a classic outline. Dark indigo blue paint with a blue powder pearl on top. It's short and stout and almost has a slightly British look from the side. Blah. #4q #crass 3w

4q69 Found this photo from what feels like a life time ago and yesterday all in one. Built this bike in the end of 03 when it felt like there was only a dozen of us not putting jack Daniels shift knobs and wide tires on our bikes..... Not that there's anything wrong with that but, you know. So many people complaining about shit these days, the worlds changed a lot. It's shrinking. It's gimme gimmie gimmie. Now. Insta-nt. Throw your phone in the toilet or cry to your bartender, or just shut up and be happy for all you have. Creativity was easier before, with out all the influx of info and comparisons. But like skating or art or music....it's gets corny, white washed and lame at times..... But it's what you make of it. If you don't like it try standup paddle boarding or maybe the unicycle, no ones forcing you to be here. This is dumb, sorry. But I loved my old garage and those days. Looking forward to more like that. #4q #promotionalhashtags @dutchmanphotos photo 4w

4q69 Happy New Year. My little Bro is going to be completely dismantled and reborn for #bf8 chopper show, thankfully I was chosen as an invited builder. I love this bike because it's been good to me and once in Yellowstone a buffalo tried to kill me and this bike and I had a religious experience avoiding what would have been a horrible accident. Many thousand smiles later I love it but hate it too. Looking at it outside of a bar I don't get a boner, and I wish I did. So without the second guessing that comes along with building a bike for a customer I've decided to rebuild this bike exactly the way I'd like to see it. Thanks for the invite mike and grant. @bornfreeshow
Let's see how it all goes. Advice for the new year. Enjoy your life. Challenge yourself. Drink more water. If you're not from the south stop saying Ya'll. No one ever needs to lock it up for a photo again. Positivity 2016.... Haha #4q

4q69 I got to #BSwithTG a little while back. I first saw Tommy Guerrero skate when I was about 12yrs old at the hunters point dish. I told my friends he could "ollie over a car" . The days when you rarely got to see a pro skater skate in the wild and not at a contest. I was blown away. Speed and style. So when him and @jimthiebaud sat me down to do this BS thing.... I tired to play it cool once again, just like the day they asked me to skate for @realskateboards Over 20 yrs ago. We all been through so much, happy to know these guys. Friends and family. Follow the link @realskateboards. Thanks dudes. #4q 2mon

Mostly just challenge ourselves and be happy with the outcome. It sponsored by no one, it's just to say thanks to life. Check it out when you get a second. It's on my link at top of page. Thanks @markchoiniere for making this. @brandonlasko u got a trick in here, @jason_atr thanks for cameos, @realskateboards and @fourstarclothing for keep me rolling. #4q #skateboarding 2mon

4q69 The talented @bentenkozou_134 has a beautiful new book focusing on a recent trip he took through California, appropriately named CA TIMES. I was surprised to see the cover, and thankful to be photographed in front of the new and old (soon to be completely disassembled) bay bridge. If you're at the @mooneyesjp show he's there selling the book and poster, if not follow his link. Lots of beautiful photographs. Thanks. #4q #promotionalhashtags 2mon

4q69 4Q Conditioning Oakland Calif. Found this shack near Jack London Square while trying to avoid pee-ing my pants. There's a strong possibility dancing was invented by someone having to hold in a pee. Food for thought. I took off the tank that was on this bike to donate to @oblivioussurroundings fundraiser art show Thursday night to help with his medical bills. Click his bio for info. #4q #oakland #tijuana #walnutcreek #losbanos 3mon

4q69 The rains just starting to drop. Bud's good company this morning. Picking up an unfinished project from a lifetime ago that was tucked away in my buddy's wood shop as he prepares for an eviction. Tearing down the most beautiful old buildings to make room for condos and stale living. #4q 3mon

4q69 Preparation H-alloween. Looking through old photos for costume inspiration and I found this one I did years ago. Yes that shirt is silk and yes that's a Chevy s-10 embroidered on it with diamonds for headlights. Snakeskin️two flip phones ️ silver teeth️ I even put that rumpa pumpa bump music playing from inside a corona box. Walked into a friends party unrecognized and got escorted to the back yard. Wish I still had the white wranglers. Have fun get weird. #4q #sinaloa #lostigresdelnorte oh and so much man perfume 3mon

4q69 Years ago I got to help design some shoes for Vans. It was strange and slightly overwhelming..... In an good way. I've worn vans almost my whole life, so to get to work with them was super flattering. It was through their syndicate division so we got to use higher quality materials and really trick the thing out. It's more like a boot than a sneaker. With the Motorcyle rider in mind...... Whatever blah,blah. But for the 10yr anniversary of syndicate they've rereleased a limited # in all black. Next Saturday I'll be having an anxiety attack at @blends in Santa Ana with the owner Mike that has been nothing but cool to me. Come by, say hi, or don't say hi, then say hi later on Instagram. Thanks to everyone that resposted info about the shoe and thanks a lot to @vansskate. #4q #4qconditioning #whatarethose 4mon

4q69 Delivered this one last week to @coffeecoffeela Jay. The smile on his face was the worth the drive. Black with red and black lacquer cobwebbing and lots and lots of clear. Kind of a late 70's turning into early 80's feel. It's for a generator shovel head he's finishing up, I'm happy to be a part of it. Thanks Jay. #4Q #christianlouboutin #redbottoms #pearlscheib 4mon

4q69 Digging through the old cigar boxes looking for something I'll never find I came across a postcard from @morfordmedia. Labeled Flagstaff 1993. Julien was on real and we were stoked on this little vert wall at this park. Lots of traveling back then, packed into the REAL team van. Someone tried to clown me the other day about not being on some trip that all the young rippers are on........ I had to laugh. If that skate groupie only knew the ride I've been on, he'd know how foolish he sounded. So thankful for the education received all over this world...... But nothing beats some of those first trips were you're just in awe that you're getting sent cool places to skate with the skaters you admire most. #4Q #realskateboards #leantotravel 5mon

4q69 Didn't make the Brooklyn invitational for the first year since they've had it. This is the shovel I brought two years ago. Single tube up and de rake. Missing Mr. Copeland and friends. How's everyone's hangover? Thinking about my friend Ray Abeyta and missing him too.RIP. It's hot in Oakland today, and I'm polishing a tank sweating to the oldies, wishing I was with @joekingspeedshop helmets drinking a cold one. Safe travels to everyone headed home. #4Q #ridechoppersorfuckoff #brooklyninvitational @timberwoolf I stole this photo from you. 5mon

4q69 Life is for Living. 500+miles with new and old friends. First to Belden Town . thanks Deathtraps for an amazing time ...then over to Nate&Nichol's in Calpine. @lazaruscycleworks @nicho_scott your hospitality was so old fashioned and so kind. It's an unpredictable dance riding with a bunch of old bikes that start with feet and not buttons as well as stopping for gas every hour...... And I love that part of it. It makes you slow down and appreciate the simplicity of these old bikes. First kick heaven or 20 kick hell with everyone staring at you. Your bike is the story teller, and you are at its mercy. In the end we had such an amazing journey .... The stars were bright and the water low but blue and beautiful. I think everyone of us laughed ourselves into tears at some point on the trip and I almost had to fight an old man that called me a dickhead. Hope everyone gets home safe, enjoy your self. Thanks for the photo Nicole. #4Q #legomyego #notburningman #belden6 5mon

You build rad scoots max, and I'm so thankful for guys like you on the planet, but fuck the bikes, you're a skating legend and just like Neil Blender and countless others I admired and tried to be like , I'm very thankful. Good seeing you. I remember you we were really small and young. Trips me out. @4q69 much respect MAXIMO 5mon
  •   rayraydar So rad Max! Road a bunch today and had a few people amazed I had to kick start my bike. Hope i get to ride with you next year. Be there in May! 2mon
