Glen Copus is a buddy of mine that has a kick ass garage that he makes bad ass bike frames in – Elephant bikes. This last week I had to make a trip over to his shop to see him about a few things and I took the ol’ camera with me to
rape more visuals “take photos of everything without asking” from his joint. I feel pretty lucky to have a buddy that builds me kick ass frames, deals with my crazy shit and lets me run amuck up in his shop like an annoying kid in a candy store.
This here is “night train”. Gonna bring her back to life and have it as my camera / commuter bike for this next year (I’ll post it when she is built up).
One of the first Elephants I came across was this version. My buddy Jake had the same one up in his garage 8 yrs ago and always loved the way it looked. Currently this frame is getting a new ass end.
Glen pulled out one of his retired welding shields to show me this rad sticker he got from his boss a few years ago- I love stuff like this.
His shop has tons of personality and there is a reason for it. When I showed him the photo of these cans he told me he got them at a garage sale for pennies on the dollar- he’s always looking to keep his place filled with cool unique visuals.
Cool posters and signs are all over his walls surrounding him.
Look out for this weekend, i’ll be doing a post on my current Elephant 29er I’ve been riding the piss out of…
Until then, have a great weekend.
