Born To Ride Reviews Larry Bishop’s Hell Ride

Published on July 9, 2012 under Born To Ride

Curiously, Larry Bishop (as Pistolero) appeared in a variety of films including The Savage Seven, Mad Dog Time and Kill Bill to name a few. His collaboration with Quentin Tarantino in this most recent effort, would lead one to believe that “Hell Ride” is a major cinematic production destined for the A list. Sadly, it falls short of that mark.   The story revolves around Pistolero and his gang…

Zen and the Art of Million Dollar Motorcycle Making by Todd Halterman This video is a profile of custom motorcycle builder Chicara Nagata, and Nagata has it going on.

And they pay a lot for them. They sell for over $1 million each and can be seen at the Ippodo Gallery in NYC.     Retrieved April 30, 2012; from…
