This weekend, Saturday May 6th,
Southern California in general — and Los Angeles specifically — will enjoy its very first top-end custom bike event; the Outlier’s Guild Motorcycle Show. A sort-of unholy alliance between Jay LaRossa of Lossa Engineering, Ralph Holquin of RMD Garage, John Pangilinan and Stan Chen makes this whole thing possible. These much-esteemed gentlemen got together and decided to do something about the lack of love shown to the custom-motorcycle culture in sunny Southern California. Who can blame them? Custom bike building is as much art as it is mechanical science, and it has a long and storied history in the U.S. as one of our favorite sub-cultures.
