I haven't posted any evo shots on our blog, mainly 'cos I don't really like them. But I'm making an exception for this bike for two reasons; first, it was built by Powerplant Choppers and they build some great bikes and second, it belongs to Joey Castillo from Queens of the Stone Age. He's a tight drummer and a pretty hardcore skater too. He did a cool interview with Steve Olson in Juice Magazine a little while ago. Check it out.
Salman Agah was straight up one of the gnarliest switch skaters of my youth. I heard a story once where the photo department of a skate rag refused to print a shot of Salman that was labelled switch 'cos they were convinced the slide was flopped. Rad.

I found this picture of a beautiful shovelhead that shows really well what I love about Max's bikes. There's nothing extraneous on there, no billet junk, no excess chrome, not too many "blacked-out" parts. Just super-clean lines, and a great idea of what a bike can be. Like it says on the Church of Choppers blog; "Don't Trend On Me."
