HFM008 : Alicia Elfving | MotoLady | Founder of themotolady.com | Blogger | Rider

In episode 8 of the Hold Fast Motors Podcast I chat with the talented Alicia Elfving from themotolady.com. I know most of you know who she is and most likely follow her work. Alicia and I had talked for awhile about getting together to do this episode and it finally all came together when both of our schedules jived enough to record it, we sat down together via the internet (as always) the Friday before I left for California on vacation. The talk lasted about an hour and let me tell you it was great, she is one of those people who you could talk to for hours and only think it was a few minutes. She tells us about the birth of the “motolady” website and her plans for the future of the brand. Her passion for motorcycles shines through everything she does, as well as her drive to show that motorcycling is not just a man’s world. The women she showcases ride as hard as most men I know, and usually look better doing it, with that being said listen up and enjoy the show!

HFM007 : Max Hazan | Hazan Motorworks | Motorcyle Builder

In episode 7 of the Hold Fast Motors podcast I get to chat with Max Hazan from Hazan Motorworks. I found Max while looking through Iron & Air, as well as a post on Motomucci. I’ve seen some pretty mighty motorcycle builds but this guy lays down some crazy skills to make art of metal, wood and rubber. We chat about some of his inspirations and the history of his motorcycle building career.

Here is the bike that was featured in Iron & Air Issue 9 that caught my attention. Its a 1996 Royal Enfield, or it was a 96 Royal Enfield now that it has been touched by Hazan it is its own beast in its own class. You can find more pictures of this bike and other on his website listed below in the show notes.

In the interview we talk about the evolution of a bike build, as you all know I suck at drawing anything so every bike I have built has just came together or “evolved” as they go. He has a different approach I haven’t seen before. He does life size drawings as he builds. I found a picture of him doing this very act on his tumblr and will share it below. I hope everyone enjoys this interview as much as I did, I am also trying out something new by doing a shorter 30 minute show instead of the 60 minute or longer show. Let me know what you think.

PS This dude also built a Sea plane in his spare time!
