Next time you're in the shop or garage and just want to kick back with a good book or plan your next build or upgrade, be sure to add these two publications to your motorcycling library; Keeping the World on Two Wheels' How J&P Cycles Changed the American Motorcycle Industry and the 2009 J&P 30th Anniversary Parts and Accessories catalog. Keeping the World on Two Wheel features the history of J&P Cycles and owners John and Jill Parham's life together as well as how they endured the ups and downs, never giving up to make their dreams of establishing a well-known and respected business come true. The 2009 catalog features hundreds of pages of the latest and greatest parts offered through J&P Cycles. http://www.jpcycles.com
Can't Stand The Pain?
For those who love the artistic style and talents of tattoo artist Ami James, of the popular TV show Miami Ink, but hate needles, have no fear. Ami just launched his new venture, Ami James Jewelry Company and its signature Love Hate Choppers collection. The collection includes leather belts, hand-finished pewter belt buckles, solid silver rings and pendants, and more. Each piece features details taken from James' Miami shop logo. In addition to serving as the inspiration for the "Love Hate Choppers" jewelry collection, James' logo design details have also been incorporated into accent parts on another one of his business ventures - the new "Love-Hate Choppers" production bikes built by and available from Sucker Punch Sallys. In fact HOT BIKE got the exclusive on the first two bikes and will feature them in an upcoming issue. http://www.amijamesjewelry.com
