'The Steel Rod Master'
I took some time to visit Kamba, my buddy who handcrafts parts for motorcycles. He made my luggage rack a few years back. I prefer buying items from people who actually make them, then order them from a catalogue or the Internet. A real person measuring, making and fitting it on the bike is so old school that it cannot be any older. There is this human touch in the old ways of doing things. I respect the man and I love what he does.
These are the steel rods Kamba bends to make custom handlebars. Do you know what ape-hangers are? Well, if you want the craziest ones your mind can conceive, this is the place to go. I am planning some additions to my bike for some time now but seldom have the time...
He also customizes bikes but not as extensively as Bojan. Bojan the master of HD customization, as you probably recall, is another friend of mine. They often work together. I occasionally meet Kamba when I go to Bojan's shop and take pics of all those bikes I've presented on this blog series on many occasions.
Here we go. Up and shining. Kamba will fix a scratch on my crash bar. I was parking and accidentally hit a small street post. No biggie. But, it gave me an awesome excuse to come for a visit.
The loose translation of this would be: "F... J. Rambo when we got master Kambo." Kamba sure knows his PR. :D
Hmm... I think I want cool-looking foot pegs under the passenger seat. ;)
Enjoy your day! :)
