Dynamite Joe’s pristine green machine
SC: HOW DID THE BIKE GET STARTED? DJ: I bought some 1938 cases from a friend of a friend off of Instagram and sent them to Joe Lingley at Live Free or Die Choppers who built my motor. I told him to fully polish the entire thing. Once I got it back, I built the whole bike around it.
SC: WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH THE PAINT? DJ: Once we got the bike all mocked up, John Edwards and I sat down to talk about the paint. He said it has to be that lime gold with flake from the ’60s. He had wanted to paint a bike that color for a long time. He didn’t want to do panels, no flames, just a true ’60s flake paint job.
SC: WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE FINAL OUTCOME? DJ: I’m super stoked the way it turned out. It couldn’t have without the help of all my friends who pitched in: John, Joel, my son Little Joe, Kiyo, ATR Jason Webber, Wargasser, Oliver, and Vic Acewelder. Without them it wouldn’t have come out to be this rad. SC
