Moto Guzzi


I got this from Jay a few years ago in a very complicated trade involving (but not limited to) motorcycles, parts, one jar of strawberry preserves, a loaf of raisin bread and this tank. It took 12 hours and four lawyers to negotiate this trade. It was epic. But the project I had this in mind for this work of industrial art never came to pass so it's time to move on. $300 cash and a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread is the price to beat.

Oil & Water Work

I have been painting on and off for the past few years. It was something I did for myself and never gave it much serious thought. Some time back I got a call from James at Us Versus Them asking me to hang something in the Oil & Water show. (Biltwell Bill put my name in the hat.) I have never been part of a group show and I have to admit I was very excited to be asked. By all reports the show was a complete success. If you find yourself in San Diego with some time, the show is hanging for the next thirty days. There are so many great artists in the show it would be a shame to miss it. Big thanks to James and Bill for letting me be a part of it. ~Walter

Things to do in San Diego

On Saturday March 9th (6pm to10pm) US Vs. THEM is presenting the Second OIL & WATER ART SHOW. It is a enormous group show filled with fifty eight brilliant artists and one complete hack. The BILTWELL contingent is doing a ride to the show if you want to get in some miles before a night of High Culture. The show will be hanging for a month if you can't make it Saturday, but you will probably regret it Monday when someone asks you " hey man, did ya do anything cool this weekend?" and the only thing you have to say is "No." Get off yer ass, ride your bike and support the arts!
