Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.

After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing. LA lets me wear flip-flops year round and has given me an appreciation of Mexican food! Check my Hall/Fame.

Lowrider, baby!

This is pure Los Angeles. Lowrider bikes, mate! All chromed out and 'tricked out' as they say here...bootiful! These are about $300-500.

I started researching them after Nick asked me to get a seat for his Grey Ghost bike. That doesn't look like this picture, but it's an American icon. I've found a 2003 version with 5 gears for $356. Bargain considering an original '73 was going for over $1,000!?

Check Stevio in the chopper stance! Now I just gotta pay for it...Next stop one of these chrome babies...get the whole set!?
