large_hands_grant Riding motorcycles!?! Instead of sitting and sweating in the shop tonight, like most Tuesdays, we @huber_1978 @theoriginalloosebruce chris' buddy and I did a novel thing and rode our bikes! Are Mexican food in Trabuco canyon which is a fun ride on it's own, plus it was actually cooler in the canyon which was a nice escape from the bazzillion degree temps in SoCal the last couple weeks. #ridetoeateattoride #ridemotorcycleshavefun #guysgottaeat 15h

large_hands_grant New generator in the '37 and it's hotter than hell, so I figured my test ride would be a beer run! Hauling a Milwaukee legend with a Milwaukee legend! 22h

large_hands_grant I was beside myself because I didn't have a chance to eat lunch until 2:45 today (noon is as far as I like to push it!) but it was saved by a PB&J of incredibleness! This thing has smoked bacon and carmelized bananas on it in addition to real good PB and...well...J. Piping hot too. #tgif #holycrap #fatguysgottaeat 5d

large_hands_grant A friend of mine has the cool '71 Servicar for sale in SoCal. It's a 45" flathead powered and was an honest police servi with the siren and all that. Someone spent A LOT restoring it and it just needs minor wiring and hardware. Get it for pennies on the dollar at $8,500. If you're serious leave a comment or email me grant@getchoppedout.com and I'll hook you up with him. You can haul all the beer to your next chopper party in style!!! #servicar #metermaid #beerrun #chopperswapper @chopperswapper 1w

large_hands_grant Stopped by one of my favorite people's places today, Smokey's in Long Beach, to get a generator and he was working on the oldest known and winningest Big Base Indian Scout factory racer that's still being raced. It's owned by his long time friend and Indian racing legend Bob Nichols. Smokey builds all their race motors. For more info on bob check out www.bobnicholsracing.com 1w

large_hands_grant Neat '58 panhead I had a couple years ago. It was a cool bike and had a Crazy Frank fender welded to the rigid frame with a little rake. Pretty simple and slick! A snowboarder from Canada named Ollie bought it. #panhead #choppersrule #crazyfrank 2w

large_hands_grant Little Rocky Erickson on the turntable this evening. I was in Dallas working almost 10 years ago and was stoked to catch him playing again after he got on or off his meds (can't remember which, but he was awesome!) backed by the Black Angels at the Granada Theater. The show was fantastic and they did a bunch of 13th Floor Elevators stuff too. I'll have to dig up the photos I took that night, (back when I used to shoot a lot of bands) I think they were good or at least neat.
Bummed I missed his LA Halloween Show a few years ago, but glad I have at least seen him once! #pioneer #firstguytousethewordpsychedelliconanalbum #aliens #crazy #rockandroll #twoheadeddog #vampires #youregonnamissme

  •   taterman this thing is so beautiful 2w

  •   rob_one_310 Haha sounds good but I'm not a ford fan. Looks like a fun car just can't bring myself to buy one for whatever reason. 2w
  •   large_hands_grant Eh, it's all the same. I've owned studebakers, buicks, fords, Chevys, dodges, and others and the only ones to really stay away from are old dodge trucks and vans!!! Was never a huge fan of Ford pushrod motors before building this car and all I can say now is that I'm a believer!!!@rob_one_310 2w
  •   therogueviking Old dodge vans !? :/ 2w
