Show Class Magazine
Head on over to Chop Cult to get an update on the Top 13 in the People's Champ!
What can I say....?
Milwaukee is always the BEST.... Always great seeing good friends... Dusty, Justin, Luke and Nate always take the best care of us and this time was no exception.... plus our brothers one from the arctic tundra, Zac, and other from the West Coast, Steve, came out to party too.... plus Scott and Warren put on one hell of a show.... made the snow and long fucking drive worth it all....... we had a blast... too many people to mention - or maybe I'm just too lazy.... anyways, next time they put this show on I hope we are asked to be part of the fun and we won't miss it so, if you skipped it you made a mistake.... don't let it happen again.... haha.....
We'll have more shots from the show in Issue 18 which will be out in April....
Thanks again Milwaukee.... we LOVE YOU!
Here's your chance to ask Denver Dan whatever you want to know.... Maybe get a little insight into one of the guys behind the scenes at Speed Merchant...
We asked one of Dan's buddies to write up a little intro... as usual, Marco killed it.... here's what he wrote....-----------------------------Greek Mythology 101: Apollo, Zeus, Achillies, Denver Dan….. (((Record Scratch)))
Denver who? Denver Dan Begakis…Thats who!
And if the name doesn’t strike a chord in the bank of memory, perhaps you need to check your chopper timeline for gaps. Sure the name wasn’t mentioned in 1812 when Homer penned the Lliad but in 1970 So.Cal birthed a surly spawn of punk rock attitude and future, man, myth, legend all of its own. While most legends encompass finite areas of interest, the mythology behind Dan of Denver is broad beyond comprehension, so in the tradition of Socratic Method…. ShowClass Magazine presents the “Denver Dan Innerview”-----------------------------
Anyways, I want to thank Dan for being part of the fun.... and I'll start the questions off:
What made you guys start Speed Merchant? What was the hardest part of getting SM started?
Leave your questions below in the COMMENTS section and if you're lucky Dan will write back.... haha....
So, last year as you may remember our buddy Bobby Good Times with the help of Bobby the Leg from King Kustoms took the People's Champ by storm taking the TOP PRIZE... then they took Born Free by storm winning BEST KNUCKLEHEAD... well, we were really stoked to see Bobby the Leg get picked as a Born-Free 6 Invited Builder....
BGT will be the first to tell you that the White Wizard would never have made it to the finish line if not for the help of his friends.... especially Bobby the Leg....
Well, the boys over at Born-Free just released Bobby's (the Leg - just in case you're keeping up) builder video.... pretty cool.....
I'm personally really proud just to have been a little tiny part of the White Wizard build and a small reason why Bobby the Leg got the love he deserves in getting invited to the big show...... Stoked for you man!
Well, we had poles running on multiple sites, Instagram voting and Facebook polls.... When the dust cleared and the calculations were made we have the top 12... well, 13..... we had a tie... anyways, here's the list.....
I wanna thank every person who took part in this... to those who put yourselves out there, I truly appreciate the effort... and I want to say that I would be proud to have any one of the top 25 represent the mag and the People's Champ at Born Free.... but, ultimately it isn't in my hands.... I also want to thank all those who voted on the contest...
Thanks again to everyone for all the support!
