Dime City Cycles Grand Opening Lowside Magazine Cafe Racer TV Discovery Channel
As some of you may know, I’m the Senior Photographer for Lowside Magazine. Lowside is into anything that burns gas and gets your hands greasy building it. We feature mostly two wheels, but some righteous four wheelers make the cut. Lowside has teamed up with Dime City Cycles to produce some Cafe Racers that will be auctioned off for charity. The process will be filmed for Cafe Racer TV. I went to Florida with the crew to document the whole nine yards, and party. Turns out they put me in front of the camera riding and being interviewed. Below are more details.
“What do you get when you combine one part infamous Smoke Out style chopper rally, one part Mods vs. Rockers right from London, and good ol’ fashion sweet-tea sipping Southern Hospitality? The grand opening of Dime City Cycles vintage speed shop in sunny Largo, FL! That’s what!
