– – Here’s a quick shot of the ‘Tramp’ — the TSY collaboration with Kevin Dunworth of Loaded Gun Customs. If you were in Brooklyn Saturday night for the Iron & Air Issue Nine Release Party, then you saw it unveiled for the first time. To see more photos, read the story behind the build, […]

THE ONE MOTORCYCLE SHOW VIDEO | IMPERFECT BIKE SHOW from Theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com

– – Thor Drake and the See See Motor Coffee Co. crew have put together this great little video that perfectly captures the essence of The One Motorcycle Show that went down back in February.
