Well folks, it’s early Sunday morning, the night after the 11th Annual Indian Larry Grease Monkey Block Party, and once again, Stellar weather, swarms of great & unusual people, incredible custom motorcycles, atmosphere, and on and on and on… Way too much to say in a simple post. What I will attempt to do here is walk you through my day, even if just with a handful of images, and after editing, I will post the remaining hundreds of images & video in our galleries. ALSO, PLEASE TAKE NOTE: WE “HOUSE OF CHOPPERS MAGAZINE / BIKERPICS.ORG will be donating .50 cents of All subscribers to our $1.99 galleries directly to the AIDAN JACK SEEGER FOUNDATION, which is the purpose for all of this madness. So here we go, the day through my eyes.
As you all may know, or not, I am not only a long term Photographer in the Motorcycle Industry shooting for my site BIKERPICS.ORG and our internal magazine, HOUSE OF CHOPPERS MAGAZINE, I am also a partner in the company of Johnny Mac’s Chopper House, just outside of Philadelphia, PA. On the maiden voyage of our new RV and trailer, where do we decide to go first? The extremely tight streets of Brooklyn, NY to the 11th Annual Indian Larry Grease Monkey Block Party.
As setup started at 400 Union Ave, the location of the Indian Larry shop, with heave assistance of the fine NYC Police Department (great guys & ladies by the way), the vendors poured in, many from far away states.
As seen above, a Johnny Mac rigid chopper and to it’s left, our own version of what can be done using a Sporster (your sportster) and authentic direct from Brooklyn, Indian Larry parts. And with that, the party begins.
Below, this was an interesting item to point out, an artist came in and was painting bikes as he saw them, right in front of all to watch, I was a little unsure of what the result would be but in the end, the final product was stunning.
The next series of images will get into the bikes of the show, the look, the feel of the afternoon. Enjoy!
The day was about raising funds for the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. As seen below, one of those simple ideas was a dunk tank which Cycle Source Owner / Editor Chris Callen was more than happy to participate in.
Below, a classic line up of Indian Larry old a new models with even more inside the shop for all to view with free reign to wonder free, seeing the how’s and what’s help create these spectacular pieces of art.Builders unite as friends as with in this photo, Johnny Mac from Johnny Mac’s Chopper House and Led Sled’s Pat Patterson. Within the shop, free Indian Larry tattoo’s were available for all, if wanted. To the right, fresh cooked port & Sam Adams beer was flowing all day, and I mean into the night. How many kegs you ask? Unknown, a truck load from my view. So, back to the outside, bikes, bands, and more. Enjoy the pics! Now, as the bike show came to a close, and the winners walked away with some really cool handmade trophies, it came time to pull the winning ticket for the raffle for the West Coast chopper reconditioned by the Indian Larry shop. The kids of the close Seeger family & friends all gathered around, and Elisa & Bob’s daughter picked the winning name, and as you can see, a happy boy with a new Killer Ride.I’ll call it a day with that, but a few more pics below. To me, a pic of Bobby that I shot with a look of being humbled by it all, a day where so much support came in & from every direction, and some shots of family friends, visitors, and as the sun set, a some cool hotrods & rat rods arrived. As I said above, our inner galleries will show so much more that you see here including a video that I shot through the day & once again, 50 CENTS OF EVER NEW SUBSCRIBER GOES DIRECTLY TO THE AIDAN JACK SEEGER FOUNDATION. Thanks, enjoy!
