I am always a day late and a ....

Well you know the rest. With no further ado, i give you the newest addition to the street kings Jackson. Quite possibly the member carrying the most "cool factor" on any given night. Departing from previous names given by committee, Jackson was awarded his name by founding member XXI. He scored a sweet frame via the e-bay battle field and is completing the build even as we speak.

Sound off on what day during the week of Dec 3-7 will work (or not work) for gang nite. Anybody with a good idea on where to roll to, leave that too.

Rules to rule by...

"The gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield... and we who found it are just men not gods, not giants, just men... the secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery you must learn its riddle, conan, you must learn its discipline, for no one, no one in this world can you trust, not men, not women, not beasts... this you can trust... (Conan's Father, "circa" 14,000 - 10,000 BC) "

1. Steel lugged frame

This is the only rule that starts the cycle of finding and building a new bicycle. Like most of you as soon as the bike is complete, my thoughts begin to wander to "strange" or the next bike. So many many good looking frames and parts.
Stay retro...??
... Or go high tech ...

So many choices.

Street Kings take to the street

Gang night in Tempe. A good crew, fantastic ride, some good brews, and some sick skids. Some Tempe cop thought he would make his career busting up the kings, instead he only added to our street cred. Better luck next time rookie.



XXI debuted "Goldfinger"

Suicideking throwing down on lucky.

I dare you to cut the lock off this stack.

Bucket is the gangs current "bike handler" but is eager to work his way up through the ranks.

Have you ever seen the movie Spartacus?

There is a slave revolution started by a bad-ass gladiator played by a young svelt Kirk Douglas. The revolution starts out slow. at first its just him and a few of his buddies cracking heads across the roman empire, but as the group moves from village to village their numbers swell to nearly five hundred thousand slaves and roustabouts. The point of the story is...well i dont really know what Spartacus has to do with cycling, but it appears we have added a new member. And as the first rule of the gang states; "You get your name when you get your frame ." I give you..."James T."
Long live the Revolution!!!!

You tell me...

Is this Big Tunas' bike Charlie? or not? the saddle and bag look very familiar i just can't place the tattoo.

Hot City Destroyers

With the possibility of a gang war ever present, the Hot City Destroyers have been laying low lately.

Daggers host alleycat race, Kings unprepared

The Daggers hosted an October alleycat race, however due to some internal wrangling the Street Kings were unprepared to meet The challenge. However in an apparent homage to the Kings, the daggers crew all wore Skulls as a show of solidarity. I can assure you that act of respect and the Street Kings absence didn't go unnoticed. Read all about the riders that did make the race. Daggers Death Race , Daggers Death Race 2
