Mods Vs. Rockers

My buddy John and I rode out this morning to get breakfast at The Brix in Sunset Beach for the starting point of the Mods vs. Rockers ride. We had to take off before they all left for The Harp in Costa Mesa but plenty showed up early. Here's some pics, enjoy.

Big ole boots

It's safe to say that a majority of our mens boot collection range from 9 to 11. And over the past few weeks, we've had customer inquiries for small and larger sizes. As luck would have it, I picked up several 11+ size boots Sunday afternoon. I just finished cleaning and polishing them and applied a good dose of the magic bowling shoe disinfectant spray. They'll be in the shop this weekend and next our search is for some smaller boots.

Furniture rehab

Here's some Mid Century Danish furniture we picked up last week and will attempt to rehab ourselves. Give us some time and we'll have it in the shop soon enough, promise. The two chairs on the left recline, super cool. Also, have some workbenches we hope to either fit in our shop or display over at Inretrospect.

Double date

Sunday morning, JoAnna and I had a double date with good friends Chris and Sarah Friedman.
Armed with coffee and our tool bags, we set out for the junkyard for some fun and adventure but more importantly, to grab some cool parts for future use in custom bits we'll bring into the shop.
Here's a couple pics Chris shot,


And here's some of our loot I shot,

What a weekend!

Grand Opening of Inretrospect on Saturday was met with extremely positive reviews and great sales. I got a chance to swing by yesterday and JoAnna did today and we are so very excited for our friends there. They have done an amazing job with the place and the vibe is splendid.
From 5pm to 10pm last night was the Soundwalk here in the East Village and if you didn't get a chance to see or hear it, it was definitely an experience. They had different and unique sound installations by 40 local and international artists from 1st St to 4th St and Elm Ave to Linden Ave. It was really a great time and we met some super cool folks as they all walked throughout the neighborhood experiencing the various installations, all for free! Word has it, the organizers were expecting a few thousand visitors to the area and I think they succeeded.
We're already looking forward to this event next year and plan to get more involved with it.
Hope you all had a great weekend and below is a picture of our small space at Inretrospect.
