Season 2:Week 5 - Update

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all are able to relax a little with those you care about. -mike

Chopperprophets-S2E5 - Tony Dunn (Classic Cycles Inc.)

I met Tony for the first time through his daughter-in-law at the El Diablo Run Viewing Party in Orange, California directly following BornFree 4. It's funny sometimes how you can get a flash of something that hasn't happend, but have the feeling that it already has. Like meeting someone for the first time and having that feeling that you've met before. Anyway, that's how I felt when I met Tony. I stopped by the shop (Classic Cycles Inc.) to talk with him about being on the show and we ended up talking for over an hour. This isn't Tony's first lap around the track. He's seen some pretty wild things and lived through some things that would drive a sober man to drink, yet he's come through the other side with grace.

Season 2: Week 4 - Update

I'm just going to change the release of these updates to Thursdays or whenever the hell I can do them... I suck with deadlines, can you tell?

Go check out Season 2: Episode 4 - The Gorgeous George. Available now in iTunes!

Chopperprophets-S2E4 - The Gorgeous George

Most people in this world are content to live life the way they're supposed to; College, Career, Marriage, House, Taxes, and Death. Not everyone can step outside the normula and just make things happen. George isn't just anyone and maybe that's why he's had some great success in leaving the world behind and following his dreams. From being a student to becoming the teacher, to rebuilding an old Airstream and living mostly off the grid George is a blessed man, but how did get to here?

Chopperprophets-S2E3 - Max Schaaf

Max Schaaf has seen the ups and downs of this culture and weathered the storms that form where men grapple for glory and recognition. He creates his art with purpose and functionality. Even more importantly, he does what he does with passion and conviction. After speaking with him for over two hours, I feel this quote best sums up Max...

Chopperprophets-S2E1 - Travis McLelland

It was hot, dusty, and packed with people. I've been to Cooks Corner many times before, but never have I seen it like this. Bikes everywhere, people having a good time, and there amid the chaos five choppers stood waiting for the final vote. Who would be the People's Champ? Travis McLelland, a 26 year old Canadian lad with a passion for creating and pushing his fabricating skills "calmly" stands by watching all this unfold like some crazy dream. It doesn't matter really who's bike gets voted to be "The Peoples" champ, he's already won. Won the battle against the goal he'd previously set for himself. Listen in as we talk about life, love, and the pursuit of perfection.
