This one is personal. These two men, INSERT RIDER NAMES, are admired by many and have defined the hot rod and vintage motorcycle world in Southern California for decades now. They are incredible fabricators and builders. They are also kind and accepting people who made room for me in an industry that I was absolutely in love with at a time when I hadn't yet built the skills to be part of this elite group. They took me in and showed me how to have fun, to be good to one another, and that success is built on community. The immense gratitude I have for them. The way they continue to create amazing machines and push themselves to continue leading by example keeps me in a perpetual state of admiration and appreciation. The only remaining question that remains is, what do the coolest fucking dudes I know talk to each other about?
The Chat is part of Andrew's Hot Shoe Chronicles collection created after a year studying flat track vintage motorcycle racing. Riders featured in this painting left to right include: Grant Peterson, Jimmy White, Jeff Moon and Go Takamine.
