No Idea In The World

I truly think I am going to open the Anchor as a for real shop in the next few weeks. Stay tuned and expect crazy things in the barrel. Moved shops into a real building with real AC and heat. It also has real rent to pay. Fuck it right I am ready for the challenge. So the last few years have been leading up to this and all the hard work, time, sacrificing, wanting, and learning has got me to the place I'm at. Amongst other things I am currently right in the middle of getting divorced, dealing with missing my kids the days I will not have them and hanging out with the raddest chick ever. You read this blog so you probably have seen my moods and post go up and down over the last three years. Life is super fucking weird and the place you end up may not be the place you pictured for yourself or your kids. But life keeps on moving no matter what kind of shit you have made for yourself.  The kids are dealing pretty good I am super motivated to not waste any more time doing shit I don't want to do. And that goes across the boards. No more living lies and being a fucking asshole but trying to do the right thing despite the truth in a situation. Move forward people or die with your feet buried in shit. Big things indeed. In the time from my last post I have built an evo, sold an evo, bought a shovel, slammed an Ironhead together for a friend and moved into a house in midtown. So now is the time if you got a project half done or want a bike built up email me and lets get going.
Long Live the Anchor


  1. Keep up the good Work.. :-)
    Life is good...

  2. Stay strong, keep on keeping on.

  3. Fuck Ricky, I don't know what to say. I'm happy for you in regard to making the leap of fate with the shop. I don't want to get all personal and shit but my heart goes out to you with the divorce and kids. I have been divorced 5 years and my little girl just turned 6 yesterday. I have had joint custody of my girl for 5 fuckin years and not a day goes by when she isn't around that I don't miss her. Weekends are never enough. I have read this blog long enough and witnessed first hand in our private conversations that you are a fuckin' solid dad and love your kids. I wish you nothing but the best in the months to come. Some days will be great and others rough as hell. Keep your chin up. If you need know where to find me.

  4. best of luck moving forward, holmes, with the shop and life in general.

  5. Thanks fellows for the support and yes Vince I am trying to really just enjoy my time with the kids and focus on the shop as job and artistic outlet. There is no art in changing tires for assholes let me tell you. I'm gonna try and make this all work.
