Today we visited the Flake Kings' new workshop, luckily they had a photo exhibition of Ken Nagahara so it was double worth the visit. Thanks for the hospitality, your workshop is really really nice.

VANS is the only shoe I wear.

Since 1982 I'm wearing VANS shoes, had a couple of "others" but since I started Paul's Boutique BMX its VANS only. Over 100 pairs to choose from and all black, thanks VANS for the years of support!

Headlight changes

I cracked the Electroline 82 lightbulb so had to find a 4 1/2 inch insert for it and found a "Tomas/Puch" light that fits good enough for now. Of course it didn't fit but I made it fit but not really satisfied so I'm looking for a real thin 4 1/2 inch glass/reflector for this headlight. 12V Mainlight/Hi beam, prefer the E4 version.

2012 "Liberator Show" pictures by madnessphotography.

Harley-Davidson Weekend "LIBERATOR" 2012 was a blast, its half a mile from our workshop and its always a hassle to bring all our bikes to the show, even if its a 5 minutes ride. This year they also had a "Brommercross" for 50cc and 70cc bikes and our 5 year old son Boyd rode 2 moto's on his electric bike and won the "environmental price". Everything was well organised and even better than last year, can't wait for the 2013 edition. With Boyd winning that price it was up to mom and dad to spill some oil on the ground: Carry showed up on the '86 Flat tracker, Tanja on the '72 golden ironhead and parked my leaking '67 ironhead and won the "most unfriendly environmental price" just kidding. Thanks to Onno for making some pictures of our bikes, unfortunately we didn't have any time to take pictures by ourselves. See you in 2013!

1982 SE Racing " PK RIPPER " by Hoodlum Society

Another Old School BMX bike, this time a '82 PK Ripper formerly owned by Ronnie v/d Elsen. He made that sealed bearing headset 30 years ago! This bike was used as our lakejumping bike for years and was in very bad shape, it turned out pretty nice I think.
