The New Yorker


On my recent trip to Daytona I ran into fellow 33er Eric Stein from NYC. I have to be honest I don't remember if it was at The Crooks Den, Main Street or the i-hop parking lot... road trips have a way of making things hazy if you know what I mean. The point is when I saw his ride I b-lined for it. I immediately aked him if he had heard of Chop Cult... because if he was not on 33 he should be. Sure enough with much excitement he blurted out "are you kidding I'm on there daily and many parts on this bike come from the CC classifieds or companies I found on there".

I was super stoked to meet up with another 33er randomly like that and his bike was so sweet I just had to shoot it. Apparently it had been at Willie's show but I some how missed it in the crowd. The location we bumped into each other at was unsuitable to take photos (too many dam people) so I asked Eric if we could meet the following day... which proved problematic because he and his crew were set to roll out at 9am the next morning. Rather than hold up their departure, I reluctantly booked an early morning meet to shoot the bike on the beach... you know I like a motorcycle a lot when I drag my very hung over ass out of bed at 8:00am to shoot it.

The lighting conditions where a little tricky but I still think it was worth getting up and out to shoot this classically clean short chop.

Eric considers himself pretty lucky to have the support of his wife Allison; who has been super encouraging through out the process. With any build it's important to thank the people that contributed and Eric wanted to thank his pal Randy Smith, Crafters Metal Fab, Jeremy Matnay for the deep blue paint and Pork Chop for the silver leaf and pinstriping. Finally his 2 kids for being behind their dad on this build.

I hope to see the Stein's at in NYC at our up coming party at ILM on May 10th.

Really nice scoot. Especially like the front end: handlebars, forks and wheel, all came together very well. Good work.
