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.

Happy Holidays from Unholy Motorsports. Below is the Xmas card I sent out. I really haven't 'felt' the holidays this year. The biggest presents I've received thus far were lending a hand while at work to a group of friends throwing a Xmas surprise for some needy families from their church- and going to 2 fires on Xmas day at work, while on my second of two 48-hour shifts over the past week. I know I shouldn't feel good about the fires. Saw the one homeowner break down and claim that the fire ruined our day (our meaning the FD). Gave her a hug and told her 'even though we hate to see someone's house catch on fire, we like to be there when it happens.' It's what we do.

So far as the shop is concerned... Lots coming in the new year. Mother nature has kept it less than desirable to be at the shop as of late, but we have a new logo-sticker-patch that have kept me busy in the basement. Here's a preview of that:

Hope your Xmas was better than mine and that you have a fine New Year (and reckless NYE of course).

Wes Lang

Found this guy through various blogs- the ones that tie the whole 'free to wander' lifestyle in with bikes, art, hot rods, non-filtered music, everything old, fast times, excesses of things that put you in places cloaking the sad reality of our already dead society.

This interview (done by Interview Magazine) of Mr. Lang could be me, 2 years older, less artistically talented, but of the same mind and on the same line. I've never met Wes Lang, maybe we're kindred spirits, or maybe we're both just sick of the bullshit hiding in faux reality.

Either way his work is so spot on in a metaphorical way. Reminds me a lot of Ray Pettitbon.
See Wes Lang's work HERE. He's just published a book- I'm adding it to my list of must-haves.

Going to the shop today, working in the well-digger's ass cold on the truck and on the CB's electrics, which I wish I could just rip off of the goddamn thing. Enjoy checking out Mr. Lang in the above links.

jailstyle lace eliminators

Gonna sell these little bands of super-velcro material that replace laces both here and at ETSY . I've been sitting on this idea for some time, and while there's still a lot to do, they work good on low-tops or oxfords using only 1 band per shoe; 2 per shoe for hi-tops. Pics of the product and details forthcoming- check the logo below- which will also be a sticker at some point.

My Sister...

Is rad. We skated this boardwalk one night after getting thrown out of the beach house for skating indoors. Here my sister attempts a bobsled run. Ended almost badly, but she had so much fun...

After a week of surfing and drinking with my family on the Outer Banks of NC, back to reality. 3 days at the firehouse this week, and hopefully as many days in the shop working on the truck and the CB project next week.
