Kevin "Teach" Baas and his family recently moved into a big new place in the country and he was nice enough to invite me and a barn full of friends over to the inaugural party. Kevin, of course, is a local bike builder, teacher of the Kennedy Chopper Class, owner of Baas Metal Craft, organizes the annual Knuckle Shuffle, and writes Vintage Bike Addiction. I'm sure he does a bunch of other stuff too in all of his spare time. I never saw his old place, but the new place is AMAZING!
That's Kevin sitting high above the crowd:
Here he is throwing some devil horns for the band that played. Oh yes, there was a band, and it wasn't just any band. More on them later.
This giant poster of him riding his knucklehead Elvis is just awesome.
He's even on a big Budweiser / Strugis banner.
Kevin and his wife Amy addressing the crowd:
The barn was so cool and he made a lot of the signs.
As the night went on, there was live music, drinking, headbanging, moshing, and even good ol' fashioned wrastlin'! At least... that's what I think was going on here.
The party went late. This guy was smart and brought a hammock.
Band pics are up next.
