Making Motorcycles From Junk Parts Since 2006

Thank you for visiting the blog that represents Unholy Motorsports. We are a team of two with a shop in the Baltimore neighborhood of Hampden. We previously occupied a space in Highlandtown, once home to Thompson Metalcraft. We've been making bikes from junk parts since 2006, and continue to work on personal projects and on customer bikes by appointment.

Really Rad Throttle

Missed this (photo from CofC) the other weekend at the Brooklyn Invitational. Truly inspiring work done to make a bike go.

Me at The Old Shop

Going through some old pics today. Found this gem. Sometimes I miss the old shop. Other times, like when I recall the commute across the city to Highlandtown, or the high rent, I'm thankful for the new spot- a whopping 4 blocks from the house and a lot easier on the wallet.

Missing the Greaseball for a good cause.

My Foundation, Don't Panic is hosting a benefit for a Fireman in need. Luau style, complete with a fire and plenty of pork, booze, good friends and family.

Reflection on Greenpoint

If I had one based on my experience last weekend using photographs instead of words, one of the few highlights could be summed up in this photograph, taken from DicE

If I had a picture of me shaking Max Schaaf's hand and one of Mollusk's beautiful Greenpoint Surf Shop, those would complete my reflective high points.

Merlin and I

Went riding Sunday. Here is a Zen-like moment from the terlit room of the place of our choice for food and beer, which happened to be One-Eyed-Mikes.

Brooklyn Invitational

Even though my dream weekend was shattered by the harsh reality of reality, I was able to snap a few shots at the Brooklyn Invitational. I also was able to walk up to Max Shaaf, shake his hand, give him a Unholy Motorsports package, and say thanks for inspiring me to be who I am.

Shirts for Bklyn

Matt, Dean and Max, there are a few in this pile for you. In thanks for motivating me to keep on keepin' on and staying true to a forever lifestyle of working on and riding two-wheeled machines. It won't fade like these shirts will. There are enough of us around to keep it in a alternating pop culture cycle of cool and weird. Forever.

Shirt Logo Progress

Unfortunately, I've made more progress in the screen printing lab than I have in the moto shop lately. At least it's progress. Here's a preview of a 2-color scheme I'm working on.

At my day job, I'm a Lieutenant for a fire department. I cover a lot of different firehouses, and in my travels sometimes it's slow and there's a skateboard in my truck so...

Detroit Velodrome (reposted from the Jockey Journal)

Usually, the only time my ears perk up about Detroit is when it's on fire or the Dirtbombs are on the move. Opened up the Jockey Journal this morn to to this:

It's nice to see rediscovery and reuse in a city that shares a lot with Baltimore in the way of discarding and abuse.

Thanks to the Jockey Journal for putting this out there and have a 2-wheeled fall weekend.

I have a version of the fin on the right for my 9'4" Mayo. Unfortunately, it and my board are in Baltimore and I am in New England staging in case Earl makes a mess. I know, I know, what does this have to do with motorcycles and drinkin' !!?? Well, the boys over at Cycle Zombies surf, ride and work on bikes, and are partly to blame for the old van revival. Playground Uncles unite!
