LIVE Video Tour of Strokers Dallas

LIVE Video Tour of Strokers Dallas

I’ve been dying to make it out to Dallas to visit my buddy Rick’s place, Strokers Dallas – home of some of the most dramatic custom motorcycles you’ve ever seen. I made plans to go last June and unfortunately my flight was cancelled, causing me to miss my opportunity. So when I learned that I was heading to Texas again, I called Rick up immediately and asked if I could stop by. He said yes! Then he called me back and said he forgot he was hosting a charity golf tournament that day so he wouldn’t be able to meet me. Bummer. But I didn’t let that stop me. I was bound and determined to make it to the holy grail of all things tie dyed and groovy! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO When I showed up, Rick’s wife Sue welcomed me with open arms. I honestly didn’t expect any less – I knew if she is married to Rick, she is “good people”. Rick has been a great friend of mine for a few years now and I think the world of him. Not only is he an amazing business role model and friend, but he is just a really good person and I admire that. Sue led me around the crazy maze of Strokers before I ventured off on my own to give all of you a behind the scenes tour of the Strokers compound. Along the way I ran into Gary who decided to show us around the rest of the way. He told me a lot of stories and explained about what we were...

Welcome Our New Title Sponsor

If you’re like us, you probably starting seeing the name “RaEdge” popping up all over the place late last year. We were seeing t-shirts and Facebook posts and unknowingly, before we knew it, we were familiar with the brand before we really knew what exactly it is that RaEdge does. Here’s what we found out: RaEdge Custom Motorcycle Paint Shop has a business model that is unlike any we have heard about in the past. The company invited some of the top painters in the country to join their team and collaborate on some of the sickest projects for top builders all over the world. Their services are not limited to professional builders, but they do cater to them by offering to schedule a pick up and delivery service with guaranteed completion dates. Wait. What?! Yes, you read that correctly. Builders like John Shope of Dirty Bird Concepts and Scott Owens of Insane Asylum (just to name a couple) have already secured their spots with RaEdge and have been given award-winning paint jobs in return. We can’t wait to bring you more behind the scenes info about the latest RaEdge projects and help you get to know the RaEdge team through the show and our online outlets. Stay tuned for great things from Wide Open Radio – brought to you by RaEdge! In the meantime, enjoy these teaser photos from their...
Season 6 Episode 2: Indian Larry Motorcycles – Bobby Seeger Jr.

Season 6 Episode 2: Indian Larry Motorcycles – Bobby Seeger Jr.

Most of you may remember the peek of the chopper craze in the early 2000’s when a new episode of Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off was the highlight of the week. Real bikers were already familiar with Indian Larry Motorcycles before this show became a hit, but those just getting into the custom motorcycle scene at that point were probably first introduced to Larry and his shop through TV. Larry always held tight to that old school look and functionality of the 50’s-60’s style choppers and his crew was known for their elaborate fabrication abilities and no-nonsense attitudes. His motorcycles were truly works of art and recognized around the world. Since Larry’s death in 2004, owner Bobby Seeger Jr. has continued working hard to keep the ILM brand relevant and to keep Larry’s legacy alive. Bobby and his crew have built Indian Larry Motorcycles into a powerhouse name and are still putting out beautifully crafted motorcycles in the same Indian Larry style as always. In this episode, you’ll hear Courtney and Bobby talk about what goes on inside the shop on a daily basis, some bikes they are currently working on and the his plans for the future of the company.

Season 6 Episode 1: Klock Werks – Brian Klock

Season 6 Episode 1: Klock Werks – Brian Klock

On this episode of Wide Open Radio, host Courtney Lambert talks with Brian Klock of Klock Werks in Mitchell, South Dakota. Klock Werks has graced the pages of pretty much every motorcycle magazine on stands and you’ve surely handled his products at some point. From their full line of parts – including the infamous Flare Windshield, to custom motorcycles to salt flat racing – the Klock Werks Krew is well respected and earning a lot of notoriety. Courtney will ask Brian about his start in the motorcycle industry, the moves he made to get where he is now, his involvement with the Hamsters, and where he sees himself, his business and his family in 5 years. I always went where there’s a niche. Like if nobody’s making a cool… steel fender, then that’s what I’m going to do – stamp out a steel fender. – Brian Klock, Klock Werks “I really enjoyed this interview with Brian Klock. I never really had a chance to get to know him prior to the show and it turns out – he’s just as nice if not nicer than everyone said! I love hearing Brian talking about his family and their values and he sure did love talking about his wife and girls! We discussed everything from the Hot Bike Tour to salt flats racing to Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off and the Hamsters motorcycle organization. So much to hear in this episode and I hope the listeners can get to know Brian a lot better while enjoying the show.” – Courtney Lambert, Host – Wide Open Radio Listeners will also hear about...
