Bikers Bordello

Projects: It is fun to follow project builds and since we try do them all too often we thought we’d open up a new behind the scenes section dedicated to it. By doing this, we’re allowing you the reader a behind the scenes sort of look at how some of the parts end up on our builds. This section will grow as we see fit so check back here often to see updates, but don’t bother asking when a specific project is going to be finished.
