In the post I did last week on the beast's virginity breaking roll out I mentioned some of the endless list of one-off fab work that has gone into this bike, and all of the invited builders turned out some mad, superb quality, custom built rides . . . . but the 'Yang Yang' was a cut above, nothing escaped the hands of the cat from Culver City and the end result was a road rocket that is a fuck off example of one man's dedication and focus on making real his very singular vision.
The number of components that were made by the man himself or so radically refashioned with his own hands is virtually never ending, you name it and it has been subject to his mind's eye interpretation of how it should really look as a single part of an overall concept, everything has a place and a purpose and everything in its place . . . . total and complete harmony, do yourself a big fat favour and take some time to really look over this jigger, like, really look, it's fucking amazing !!!
I have truckloads of respect and deep admiration for all the invited builders, many of whom are some of my own heroes, they represent some of the most delicious cream of the contemporary custom cobbling crop and a massive pat on the backs of them all, the struggle and strife they went through to realise their individual projects can only be imagined . . . . to Caleb Owens, Cro Customs and the star of the show, 'Yang Yang', biggest ups possible for doing something so outside your relative comfort zone and in such a way that it will continue to blow minds for years to come . . . . love your work !!!!
