Renegade Route 66


Check out my Renegade photos of todays Route 66

The legendary Route 66 conjures up visions of the glory days of Americana like no other highway in America. Originally covering a total of 2,448 miles, Route 66 ran from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California. Many beautiful western vistas can be seen traveling this iconic road. Who can’t picture America’s greatest classic automobiles shining in the sun as they roar down this glorious stretch of highway? Today it’s no longer a main route across the US, so most of the townships are dried up next to nothing. But for the adventurer and outdoor photographer, it’s a gold mine of rusty treasures just waiting to be captured.

Handmade Lot Sturgis 2019


Check out the Handmade Lot Sturgis 2019 - I was fortunate enough to catch the first incarnation of The Handmade Lot, a collective of builders and craftsmen in Sturgis this past year, hopefully, the first of many more to come. The Handmade Lot and the pre-eighties chopper show were brought to you by Bill Dodge of Bling’s Cycle and Chris Callen of Cycle Source Magazine. This year they only held the chopper one day, but I believe if the rumors are true, they plan on rounding up more even more craftsmen to create something similar to the Born-Free show. If this is the case, I sure hope I can be a part of it next year. Click here for the full story: http://www.renegade-magazine.com/issue-41/issue_41.html#42-43/z


The Troglodyte - 1946 Flathead


Troglodyte- “A person regarded as simple or deliberately oldfashioned” I have been building bikes for a long time and even riding a 1937 ULH for several years. This time I decided to build a long and skinny chopper; very simple, very old-fashioned, a bike I refer to as “The Trog”. I started with the toughest of the Harley breed, the big-twin side valve UL engine, also known as the Flathead. I wanted a clean, open design that could be easily fixed with a flat tip screwdriver or pliers and a rock, if need be, on the side of the road. If a problem arises, I want to point at it and fix it. - Click here for full story: http://www.renegade-magazine.com/issue-41/issue_41.html#34-35

Born-Free Show 11



Born-Free is without a doubt California’s premier chopper show and this year’s show was no exception.  It is one of the largest gatherings of chopper freaks in the nation showing off their latest custom builds; everything from the pristine vintage beauties to the well-worn patinaed machines that expose a story that’s worn deep into their skin.

I know, I know... it's been a long time since my last issue of Renegade, hopefully it will have been worth the wait!  
I have been pretty much off the grid for the past year or more focusing more on my new artistic endeavor, the Church of Chop traveling gallery! I have been working my ass off on producing a bunch of custom art, and putting together a collection of my photography, plus producing several other products from my own personal art, such as t-shirts, tapestries, and more to prepare for my new adventure into the vending world. I have already been following my beautiful girlfriend around this awesome country of ours country for the past three or more years helping her with her business Jennifer's Web, she sells ladies apparel and accessories at most of the major bike rallies all across the country every year. So I have had a real crash course in the traveling vending game.  I thought I can do this, like so many before me who have tried and failed. Starting any business is tough and risky, I believe I have something to offer that no one else has or can imitate!  Not since the early days of biker rallies have there been very many making and selling their own art or original designs. Like most everything else in this world, greed killed off all the original creative people who created their own t-shirt designs or made their own jewelry or other creative items.

So I've kind of been keeping a low profile as I have been planning my attack and working my ass of to get to this point. I have spent the past several months building the coolest booth that will be at any biker rally anywhere! Instead of using metal grid like everyone else does I decided to build wooden walls to give my booth that rustic look and really help showcase my art. Now as I said I gave all of this a lot of thought... I made my walls in panels, the same size as grid so it goes up just as easy as grid but looks way cooler! Of course  it's not perfect, the wood panels are much more bulky and take up more room in the trailer, but they are lighter by a little bit anyway. 

At the same time I have also been working on all kinds of art projects for my Renegade gallery, everything from industrial pipe lamps and metal art to t-shirt designs.

I just finished with my very first outing with my whole 20x20 booth filled with my own custom made art at this years Cave Creek Bike week rally! It was a huge success! I couldn't be happier! Everybody loved my booth, and many were just blown away by it!  But most importantly I was able to sell my custom made lamps and other art for a good profit! Finally after a life time of living the starving life, I've finally fully come into my own, and getting some appreciation for my work as an artist.

Have no fear! Renegade magazine has been my main creative outlet for many years and it will continue to be one of my creative outlets, and I plan on putting more effort into it this year with four new issues a year.

In this issue there are some awesome spreads on Born Free 10 show, Michael Lichter's Art of the motorcycle exhibit, the Upsweep Chopper Show, my las Sturgis Rat Rod Invasion show and an artist feature on Vaughn Belak.

If you would like to check out some of my new art, you can visit www.churchofchop.com 

Hope you enjoy it!

Bornfree 10 show


Born Free 10 This was the second time I’ve been to the Born Free show out in California; the first time was just as a spectator/photo jockey. This year I came back as an artist/ vendor. It was my first time out of Florida with my new Church of Chop booth. Needless to say, I wasn’t sure how it would all go... We got there late for set up, and they have a fairly strict rule of having you off the property by 4 pm on set up day. I was a bit stressed out that day; fortunately, we were able to get most of it set up and shove the rest in the tent so we could finish up in the morning. The next day started off a bit rocky scrambling to finish it all. Once we got all our shit together everything went very well from there...

Rumble in Red Lodge


Red Lodge, Montana is one of my favorite towns to visit; its one of those cool little towns in the middle of nowhere nestled right at the bottom of Beartooth Pass just outside Yellowstone. Beartooth Highway is one of the most intense mountain roads in the country, just one mistake and its kiss your ass goodbye! The steep grades and sharp turns with cliffs that drop straight down are enough to make anyone’s butt cheeks pucker!

Michael Lichter's Passion Built Motorcycles as art exhibit


Michael Lichter’s “Motorcycles as Art” show is presented each year at the Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Rally and it never fails to impress! This year’s show was no exception; the gallery was packed full of some of the coolest bikes in the country with some of the finest motorcycle-inspired art lining the walls.
