Acid Trip by Jaags Cycles

While sharing a a booth with Shiftpoint Magazine at the East Coast Indoor Nationals back in 2010, we were set up across from the Jaags Cycles display. Jeff Gray owner of Jaags had his build Acid Trip on display along with his Marilyn Monroe bike and a few others. While all of his bikes drew a crowd all day, this particular bike really stood out. The paint work and metal work and custom touches throughout made this one unique bike worthy of all of the attention and trophies it garnered.

The H-D Panhead motor and  psychedelic 1960's paint work by Kenny Dean and custom seat by local kulture legend John Longo really gave this bike a way back hippy trippy look and a fit in finish that could compete at any national level show.

Jaags Cycles was once located here in the Mid-Atlantic in Hollywood, Maryland but have now moved on to sunny year round building and riding in Florida. Their shop will be missed in our region, but from the quality of their builds it looks like they are going to be making their mark in the custom building scene for a long while.
