rabbie and christina

bob demetrius and christina came by the shop today to help erik with his sidecar... theyre the fastest f'in vintage sidecar racers on the track. we got the holeshot off the grid at roebling road but we were pretty much trash bin entrails against demetrius who quickly passed us into turn one and left us in the dust thereafter. i asked his dad chief if he had gigantic brass balls... i cant remember his answer but im pretty sure he makes a clinking sound when he walks around

make it stick baby

upon closer inspection we're not sure if the new puppies (left) are going to give us the kind of traction we need sliiiiiding through the corners... but hey, i guess there's only one way to find out

sidecar tires

ivan just received his huge delivery of heidenau tires from germany - included in the shipment were these babies for us to test out on the sidecar rig...
