Indian Larry circa 1996, Iron Horse photo shoot.

I got that very mag (featuring the above 'flaked-out, ceriani - equipped Shovel masterpiece) when I lived in Peckham, South London.  Mean streets just like gasoline alley - maybe that's pushing it a bit, but I did get my 1st hardtail and 1st ink round that time, too.  Good days.

Anyhow, as I said, this was the 1st time I even heard of IL, and was blown away by his approach, values and inspiration.  But most of all by his art, because without a shadow of a doubt, ART is exactly what his motorcycles were.

RIP Larry.  Better to burn bright than fade away.
