Anna's Army Belt Buckles

I was deeply honored when I was asked to turn this design into a belt buckle by my friends Justin and Andi Reno. These Belt Buckle are availible through Anna's Army. They come in two sizes 2/5/8" x 4 and 2"x3". Not only are they cool but part of the purchase price goes to help FIGHT the battle against Cystic Fibrosis. Check out Anna's Army for more info on how you can help and purchase one of these awesome buckles.

Graham Supercharger

Back in the late 1930's Graham producted car's with a crankshaft driven Supercharger. This spring I saw one of the Graham Superchargers on vendor table at the Carlisle Spring Swapmeet. The Supercharger had a plate on it that said "Supercharger Designed and Built By Graham" I really liked the plate. iIt had a simple style but looked pretty cool. I snapped some pictures of it and decided to reproduce the plate in etched aluminum. The orignal was approx 3" long by an iches high. Mine is a little bigger 6" x 2" to be exact.

I've added a few new ones.

Hunter S. Thompson once wrote "I am not without scars on my brain and my body, but I can live with them." Well I have add a few new ones to my collection. You may or may not know that I take a spill on my Triumph America last month while riding in Georgia. I was down that way with the Go Fast Crew for the first annual Go Fast Nickelbud Invitational. I rode from New York to Ohio down to Georgia only to dump my bike 5 minutes into Saturday mornings ride. So two broken ribs some road rush and some minor damage to the america and it was over. We did manage to have some good laughs over the whole thing. So I've been home and on the mend, getting  all my shit sorted out. The bike and I will be back in action shortly.

Like HST said "Some people will tell you that slow is good – and it may be, on some days – but I am here to tell you that fast is better. I've always believed this, in spite of the trouble it's caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles...."
