Nicks custom cycle (aka) NICKS - New Jersey most well know running bike shop- thats all ya need to know, if your from jersey and you dont know about "Nicks" then you are completely out of touch. Nicks Cycle salvage has got to be the most impressive motorcycle shop in what i would consider the world. Nick has acres of property that contains chicken coops and trailers full of harley and indian motorcycles and parts. Nick also has one of the coolest museums on his property"MUTH'S ANTQUES" full of all vintage motorcycles. if ya get a chance and your on the east coast its worth the trip to check out Nicks!

Tommy "GODA" was a true brother to all. He was long time member of Jersey Iron MC who loved his friends and brothers as much as his shovel head - when i was building my panhead Tommy gave me every part he had laying around his garage that would work, to get me up and running and at no point ever expected anything in return. Tommy was taken from us by a drunk driver at a very young age - we will never forget you. Goda Forever!

Mrs Jays Beer Garden

Mrs Jays beer garden Asbury park's most famous dirtbag hangout bar Jersey has ever had to offer. I loved this place! Located in asbury right next to the stone pony and the gold digger. I was a daily customer between the years 1986 to 1990 then the old girl got knocked down. I will soon be re-popping Mrs Jays t shirts. Many great stories this bar has to tell.

Panheads Forever

I took these pics almost 20 years ago of two of the coolest pans that have ever run the streets of Jersey! By far the hottest pair of pans. Wheelie pullin - ape hangin - jockey shifting bikes! - I can still see the orange pan pullin a wheelie outside of Mrs jays in Asbury at 3:00 in the morning right in front of a cop car! The black pan was by far the fiercest bike owned by legendary bike mechanic Eddie Hobar, Nothing looked more intimidating then Eddie riding that pan in a pack Breed MC patch holders. These bike and the guys that rode them were what bikers were all about then and now. its hard to top these two no bullshit Rides! Enjoy!

A New Jersey Texan

Some time Wednesday 9-3-08 on I80 near Pittsburgh a very close brother and sister of mine had a motorcycle accident. Danny and Barbara were riding when something made his bike lose control and they went down. Barb did not make it through the crash and Danny is now fighting for his life in the Pittsburg university hospital. Danny has been riding since i was a 10 years old he's a Texas born outlaw that did the 1% thing years ago and liveS to ride. He made me an honorary texan years ago. Barb was the female version of Dan, she loved to ride and loved her friends. Please take a moment to look up and say hey to Barb and pray for Dan to pull through. Anyone thats been to panstock knows that Dan and Barb have never missed and never will. Barb I will miss you dearly and think of you often. Dan I will ride with you again.
