Click to preview Kirk Taylor/Custom Design Studio Sacred, a tribute to Johnny Chop photo book

It was a rainy, kind of crappy cold day in March in California when I finally got to get a close look at a bike that I’d seen before, but not gotten up tight and personal with. I’d spied the beginning of the machine taking shape, a frame and a few tin parts, while visiting Custom Design Studio in Novato California some many moons ago and It was pretty cool to be able take a look at the bike in its fully finished state – no longer a fresh, out of the box bauble.

So during a busy weekend at the Custom Chrome Dealer Show in Santa Clara, Kirk and I rolled this machine out onto the loading dock behind the venue, gave it a final wipe and there ya have it, Sacred, a bike built by Kirk Taylor at Custom Design Studios – in tribute to our mutual, departed friend Johnny Chop. Plain and simple.
