Swag Attack: Griots Garage & Chaose Cycles

Swag_01_300.jpg

I’ve told you how ridiculous the Greasebag raffle is. Those of you who have attended before know that the volume of stuff we give away is epic. This year is turning out no different, my dining room is already piled high with goodies to give away, wait until you see some of the stuff I’m going to be posting next week. Look at the list of sponsor logos to the left, all those guys have stepped up big time and I’m always humbled by their generosity. The great thing is that every year, new sponsors step up to chip in, both of these guys are new to the Greasebag this year and I’m stoked to have them.

Griot’s Garage makes and sells volumes of goodies for the garage rat. Everything from tools to maintenance products. They’ve sent us a whole bunch of their high quality cleaning products to give away. Hey, even us dirtbags need to scrape the mud of every once in a while. With the frequency that we all clean our bikes, this stuff could last a lifetime.

Chaos Cycles is one of the fine purveyors of New York custom motorbikes. I’ve featured their builds on knucklebuster going back to year 1 and George is a awesome guy who keeps upping his game. We’ve got a bunch of apparel from them to throw into the mix, and with any luck we’ll convince the CC crew to come out and party with us.

Swag Attack: Sideburn Magazine

How awesome is this – one of the absolute best moto magazines on the scene today has donated a whole stack of issues to give out at the greasebag. If you’re not familiar with Sideburn, you need to poke your head out of the ditch and click on over to their site to check them out. The very best of trackers (dirt, flat, street, board, etc..) and chock full of style and class. Their tagline of “the world’s best go fast, turn left magazine” is no joke. It is, hands down. I’ve got 3 stacks of 4 issues to hand out at the greasebag, plus a bunch of cool stickers to go with it. Go check them out, order some issues and dig into their blog, which is also top notch.

Swag Attack: Eastern Fabrications & Heyltje Rose

Eastern Fabrications and Heyltje Rose have been with us since day one and their support has always meant a great deal to me. I’ve written about Lock in the past and how I dig on the perspective and creativity he brings to the motorcycle world. Heyltje is brings her innovative style and artistic vision to the leather working game, creating one-of-a-kind seats, bags and jewlery amongst other things. They’ve graciously donated a whole bunch of shirts to the swag raffle along with sponsoring one of our trophies. Sadly, this will be the first year in Greasebag history that they won’t be with us in person, but certainly in spirit.

Check out the killer work both of these guys do here:

Jeremy at LC Fabrications steps up again with this huge back of goodies to give away at the Greasebag. Tons of builder parts carb caps, tach drive eliminators, oil caps and more. Plus a whole mess of t-shirts and stickers. For those of you who don’t know, Jeremey’s parts are super high quality, made in the USA stuff. His pedigree as a world championship bike builder passes straight through to the stuff he makes for the garage builder. Awesome stuff, and I’m super stoked to have him helping us again this year.

Swag Attack! Icon Motorsports

Swag_01_301.jpg

It’s that time in the game kiddos – the time to start enticing you with the insane amount of swag we’ll be raffling off at the greasebag. We’ve got a reputation to protect – if you’ve been to a Greasebag before, you know how we do. Thousands of dollars worth of builder parts, paint jobs, leather seats, t-shirts and other swag. Last time around I couldn’t even fit everything on the (3) 8 foot folding tables I had put aside – yeah, it’s that big. Our sponsors are the best and step up big time to help support the event, their donations and the proceeds from the raffle are what cover the costs with putting the show one, it’s the reason we can make it free for everyone. Much respect to them, make sure to check out their websites by clicking on the sponsor links to the left.

So I’m going to start it off with one of the big guns – Icon Motorsports. You might not immediately think of Icon when it comes to our D.I.Y garage monkey community, but these guys are the real deal. If you check out their limiter blog, you’ll see that the crew there does their fair share of bare knuckle wrenching. From choppers to trackers to, yes, sport bikes – these guys are walking the walk. They’re not just some random company cashing in on the moto scene – they love 2-wheel death traps just as much as we do. These guys have been super supportive – not just to us, but others like the Bastard Bash as well. I dig that, and they’re doing it the right way (unlike some other big companies trying to get in on this – ahem dark customs). Now, I’m not gonna lie to you, the flaming skull joker tribal is not my cup of tea, but their products are solid, well made and thankfully come in solid colors. The Variant helmet they make is balls out, and their patrol line of waterproof gear is killer (I’ll be writing reviews on that stuff later this year after a full season of riding).

I’m stoked to have these guys as part of the show this year, and they really stepped up with their donation. This shit is unreal, almost $1000 worth of gear! 2 helmets, 2 riding vests, 2 pairs of gloves (including a set of the Patrol waterproof gloves which rule), t-shirts, stickers and a whole mess of their limiter ‘Zine (also very awesome). My wife still can’t believe they sent all this shit (it’s taking up a considerable amount of space in our dining room). The best part is that we’re giving it all away, but the only way you can get your grubby hands on it is by coming to the greasebag.

So consider this the opening shot of the swag attack that is about to ensue. If you thought we went big last time out, wait till you see how much we’ve got coming at you this year.
