New Product Launch: Lowbrow Customs Knurled & Beck Grips



We are extremely excited to announce two new styles of grips to the Lowbrow Customs Line up, Knurled and Beck grips. Grips are one of the easiest ways to make your bike stands out from the crowd and changing them out is extremely easy. Check out www.lowbrowcustoms.com/grips for all our styles we carry.

Knurled Grips: The knurled bands encircling this timeless design have been scientifically calculated to allow the proper channeling of sweat from your palms equally well when whiteknuckling around the track or putting along through the desert, all the while providing you with the security and style that one desires from a motorcycle handgrip. In addition, they look the part while your bike is parked, anxiously awaiting your return. Available in 1" and 7/8" for only $19.95 - Get a gnarly grip!



Beck Grips: From the annals of motorcycle history, Beck Grips have been brought back in modern, injection-molded Krayton rubber to fit the make and model motorcycle of your choice. Straight black or marbled, whichever suits your fancy, this narrow profile grip looks right at home on vintage motorcycles as well as custom bikes of all eras and styles. Available in 1" and 7/8' for only $19.95

New Product Launch: Introducing Grifter Company

Unsatisfied by the mass-produced quality of the gloves on the market and bored of the tired styles, Grifter Co. set out to make gloves that represent who they are when they ride, while simultaneously respecting those individuals who made them. They couldn’t reconcile good workmanship with a fresh look from other brands so we considered making our own. And this led us to Gloversville, New York. And it’s not just how our gloves are made that’s important, Grifter Company aims to change the moto wear game by celebrating the individual rider, man or woman, and creating distinctive styles that reflect the forward-thinking minds defining today’s scene. Moto culture doesn’t have to be limited to black leathers and a soft-tail bagger (though if that’s what you’re into - fine by us), and we’ve noticed female riders haven’t been given much to work with for gloves. We’re motivated by the new wave of moto culture and evolving look of today’s riders.

We are carrying 4 different styles in sizes Small through 2xl. You can find these, more info along more styles of gloves we carry at www.lowbrowcustoms.com/gloves

Event Coverage: Pinned Ohio 2015


Soggy boots and damp muggy air, with dark grey clouds that circled over my head leaving for the occasional sun ray to peak through ever so slightly. Aromas of asian bistro filled the air and the echoing sounds of wet air cleaners coughing after they have been kicked over for the 20th time by almost every bike in attendance. Music blared in the front right corner of the Rice Paddy compound, surrounded by hundreds of parts, chassis, and scraps of what used to resemble probably some amazing and rare Japanese bikes. Close friends making jokes about each other and beers being drank by all pretty early in the day. It rained off and on all day long but no one who actually came seemed to really care. It was a weekend to remember, one to make memories and see friends I haven't seen in too many months due to the long Ohio winter.

This was the over all feel at Pinned Ohio this year, which is a motorcycle event/show based out of Columbus Ohio. On it's 5th year now, Kareem Jackson has made a grass roots event feel like a annual party you can never miss out on. Good people, great bikes of all shapes and kinds, all with a laid back atmosphere. I believe this is my 4th time going and you think you would know what to expect when showing up but it never ceases to amazing me. It's cool to see familiar bikes at an annual event and analyze them all over again, I seem to always find some new interesting detail or added addition to the over all character of the bike. I guess to me it's getting to see the over all life of the bike without owning it.

I feel like the rain may have scared some away this year but everyone that showed up made it one hell of a time. Kareem said he is going to be doing this event again for a 6th year and probably even longer so if you skipped because of the rain this year, you get to redeem yourself next year and come! If you don't like having fun, I guess you could stay home. Pinned Ohio is in the middle of May and is always a good time, I promise. Follow them on their IG page @pinnedohio for more info and more pics of the event.


Rode to Pinned on Triple Six Dan's Evo and snagged a few shots of him, Kerry, and Steph. Thanks again Dan for letting me ride that crazy contraption. Always fun riding new bikes and trying to shoot. 


















Bikes riding in and out of the compound all day! This is one of the first dudes to arrive. Thanks Joe for the bird haha.



Bear from Old Bike Barn's 1976 xs650 named "The Gold Digger". This bike came out pretty damn awesome! 



Bob and his wife rode all the way in from northern Ontario.




















The Turbo Kaw is always cool to see.




















New Triple Six Crew Death Co ad? 







Here is Derek riding off on his swing arm Ironhead that he worked on for 2 days straight trouble shooting something wrong with his coil and electric. At the end of the show the bike finally fired up. To see the smile on his face after so much hard work, frustration and intense trouble shooting made for the best moment of the show for me.

-Till next year, Pinned Ohio!
