One of the most recognizable bicycles of all time just hit its growth spurt thanks to Sean Skinner at Motorelic. Sean started this project back in 2016 by creating a custom frame. Then he found a re-phased 1978 Yamaha XS650 engine and went from there. We caught up with him at Mama Tried 2022 to get a closer look at the finished product.
"Sloppy Pistons is focused on supplying quality clothing and apparel including T-shirts, hoodies, hats, stickers, etc. Our designs are inspired by the chopper subculture and the brand is rider owned. Sloppy Pistons was started in December 2020 and is based out of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, USA. The name was influenced by the lowlife chopper podcast so check em’ out if you haven’t already. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. We hope the Sloppy Pistons brand can bring people of common interests together. As the world gets more divided, the outcasts come together as a community. Together we stand, divided we fall." -Jesse Nemetz
April Fuels is a 200+ mile ride in Southern Indiana for those who like to ride! This is NOT a barhop or short ride. The roads we take are challenging and the riding can be difficult at times. It is a loop ride, with a chase truck, free raffle for riders, and a meal provided at the end.
If you plan to attend, make sure your bike is sorted, your brakes and lights work and be self-reliant. The chase truck is for emergency situations, not to carry your shit.
If you are looking for a solid ride, with solid folks than feel free to attend. If you are in it for a free raffle, or some other reason, do us a favor and stay home. -Cooker
