As part of my fabulous LA tour (great food, beer... and chopper shops!) Matt and Justina took me to meet Yaniv Evan at Powerplant Choppers. He was already a bit of a hero of mine after seeing his bike-surfing shot on the front of Street Chopper, and his new shop – attached to the old workshop – is super-cool.
I like the twists he puts on the trad chopper theme... but what is it about big American Pitbulls? Yaniv's dog was loping around the workshop. "Don't look at him... just ignore him!" instructed Yaniv. I love bull terriers but their big US cousins seem unpredictable and make me nervous!
