Inner View - Jasin Phares

Well, I really don't know what to say since I don't know Jasin very well personally....... So, I'll tell you what I do know....

He's built some AMAZING bikes....

He's a father.....

He used to manage a skate team....

He's a skilled craftsman.....

He's a metal worker by trade......

He seems like a genuine, down-to-earth REAL person.......

Oh, and he is the star of a photo that is bound to make you want to ride your bike like watching the Search for Animal Chin made me want to skate when I was a kid..........








I'll start the party off......

Jasin, what got you into bikes?

What's the scariest ride you've taken?

What made you want to run a 23" wheel on the Panzie?

How did you get your wife to agree to such amazing names for your sons?



Leave your questions in the COMMENT section........... now, get to it!

Thanks for participating and thanks to Jasin for agreeing to be part of the party!



**** All the photos are stolen from the interweb..... sorry.... I think 2 of them are by the Flying Dutchman and the other may be a Tim O'Keefe photo....

I know that wasn't a question but feel free to include it anyways.

WhitelinePsycho said...

Are you conscious of appearing to be so completely 'one with the bike', it's not a man love question just that in any stills or videos you always seem so 'in there', a more than most of the best, like an almost flowing, skate style thang . . . sorry it's so long Tim.

Nick said...

I'm stoked to be asking Jasin questions, just saying.
Is the Panzie still around?
Any back smiths in the deep end lately?
Do you know karate?

Mighty Whitey said...

What was your first motorcycle and what first got you into bikes?

diggerdarren said...

dave herr said...

Clarke said...

There are a wad of vetern skaters that seem to naturally migrate over to motorcycles. What do you think is the draw and connection from one to the other for you?

ok kyle said...

DSmatt said...

RAGERKEVIN said...

Have you ever had the honor of meeting Jeff Phillips? A true rager

dave herr said...

your kids are obviously a huge part of your life, what else besides motorcycles gets you stoked?

Hell Mutts Billyd said...

We all have that one bike we regret selling. Mine was a 78 sohc cb750 cafe racer I slapped together a few years ago and then sold to fund finishing my triumph. Nothing too fancy, just all the right parts that made it so much fun. What's the one bike you regret letting go?

My 8 year old boy loves to go riding with me. As a dad, I'm torn between sharing my love of two wheels with my kids and sheltering them from it because of the risks involved due to all the idiot cage drivers. Everytime we head out i feel a little guilty like im putting his life at risk. What's your take on the subject.

Nick said...

Jasin, do you think all these questions are as gay as I do?

dave herr said...

why does nick talk so much shit? whatever happened to the illuminate project and when can i get a Harold's t-shirt?

David said...

Did the internet and pictures of you on the internet discourage you? It seems that one day you disappeared from the digital machine! Thank You Jason, David!

David said...

Oh I forgot!!!
Do you think its gay if one guy asks another guy his penis size?

How big is your penis?

Clarke said...

What's your plan if the shit hits the fan and the planet tries to skae us loose in December? Can you blame it?

Boards or Bikes- What's gotten you in more trouble? More injured? More freedom? More girls? More pride? More trendy? More life long friends?

Do you have a question for us?

antihero1972 said...

Do you still get out and skate? Who is Harold? Any Phelps tales you want to share with us?

Gorgeous George said...

With rad tattoos such as the Misfits Crimson Ghost and Danforth's Alva graphic which tattoo has the most meaning to you and what is the story behind it?

DSTim said...

You think the internet makes bikes more rad or more lame?

Seems it (the internet) makes a lotta people real brave and real critical...... what do you think?

Why is it when something gets "popular" in this little chopper world we live in everyone starts hating it? You think it's the whole lemming response... the "I was first to..." thing... what do you think?

Who has been your biggest mentor in the motorcycle "game"?

F, Mary Kill..... Sally Fields (Smoky and the Bandit), Dolly Parton (in her prime) and Debra Winger (Urban Cowboy)....

Thanks!

Wild Bill said...

Favorite skater of all time? Or top three skaters of all time?

Best skate trip you've been on and worst skate trip you've been on?

What influences you the most when it comes to building choppers?

Glad said...

All in their prime...you get to hang out with one, look like one, and fight one...the choices... Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson?

Dave Polgreen said...

Talk about that generator shovel you built with the aluminum fairing deal. That was a really nice bike with a lot of cool touches that never really got its due. What was the thinking/feeling behind the bike, parts used, where is it now, etc.

NewKevin said...

C.Earhart said...

Jasin,

Do you think these "scene" ?'s are blowing it? Cause I do! You don't really need to answer this one.

I heard that you prefer your coffee from a tea cup and once kicked the gears clean off a kicker gear while touring through Portland, Oregon. Are these rumors true?

Being that yourself and Jason Jessee have the best frontside ollies in the skate game, Is there much cross over between the way you ride your skateboard and the way you ride your bike?
