This may seem a bit ridiculous after yesterday's post, but we have yet another book coming out very soon. Penned by Howard Kelly with photography by Michael, S&S Cycle Presents Today's Top Custom Bike Builders includes all 50 bikes commissioned by S&S to commemorate their 50th anniversary. One year ago in La Crosse, WI., Michael and I weathered storms, floods (the other end of the tent was in 6 inches of water), and a tight timeline to photograph all 50 bikes using high-power photographic strobes in a large tent. These bikes have since appeared in magazines all over the world, but this book includes all of them as well as a foreward by Jay Leno who was gracious enough in lending his time to the project. Builders include; Chica, Arlen, Cory and Zach Ness, Paul Cox, Jerry Covington, Kendall Johnson, Roger Bourget, Rick Fairless, Fred Kodlin, Chopper Dave, Trevelen, Dave Cook, Krugger, Marcus Walz and more.

We're slowly making progress on our preparation for Sturgis. The new light has been taken down and packed. A plan is in place for the trailer set to haul 2 bikes, artwork for Rebel Rousers, and all our equipment. Among the things left to do; pickup some artwork and a bike from south Denver, pack and load all our photo equipment, and probably a lot more that I can't think of right now. Stay tuned...
