Marty Claus

Christmas came early this year. I heard a rapping at the door and found a gift box hand packaged by the one and only Roadside Marty lying on the door step. I don't think ol' Saint Nick can top this. Two shaved legs and a partridge in a Raked Tripple Tree.

So perfect! We were discussing bike builds in Sturgis. I mentioned how much my extended 33mm front end sucked big hairy testicles and that I planned on deraking my neck a little bit and running 41mm tubes in a set of raked narrow trees to get the same stance but correct trail. Even better is the fact that the plates are bent to create the rake rather than diagonally drilled holes. This means that I wont have to reconstruct my handlebars to keep them at the same angle as the gas tank after deraking the neck on my frame.

Marty... I can't thank you enough.

Marty is one of the greatest guys you would ever want to meet.... unless he doesn't like you.... then you're fucked

But if he likes you he loves you.... and will do anything for a friend..... I'm glad I can call him a friend.

Check out the fantastic Pan he is building. Flat Broke

Roadside is a king amongst kings... I believe you just may be right about the "if he don't like ya" line. Brother Roadside is a class act, I too am proud to call him a friend.
