Austin Speed Shop, Dickies Work Wear, & Fort Lonesome have teamed up on a killer limited run jacket with some real history! This vintage pattern is part of the Dickies 1922 line made from archival patterns only for this one run! It's made in the Uvalde, Texas factory that has been making Dickies clothing since the 1950s. It's got several neat details including incorporating military style thrity-ligne industro buttons that have been used on army fatigues for decades. Once Dickies assembles the jacket, our friend Kathie Sever at Fort Lonesome uses a vintage chainstitch machine to apply the Austin Speed Shop logo on the back and the great state of Texas on the left chest pocket! Support the nearly lost art of non-digitized, maker-driven, one-of-a-kind stitching done right here in Austin. As an added bonus, for those of you that pre-order and attend the event... Kathie will be setup at the shop during Hotdogs & Hotrods to chainstitch your name on the jacket using her vintage chainstitch machine. Cool! Preorder HERE.
Mark your calendars! Saturday, November 1st, we're throwing a party with our friends Dickies Work Wear during Formula 1 weekend! Car and Bike show starts at 3pm and bands at 4pm. Doug Strahan and the Good Neighbors, The Keller Brothers, and The Moeller Brothers! Food by the Hot Dog King and refreshments by Miller, Treaty Oak Distilling, and Blue Nectar Tequila! Tell your friends! Feel free to repost. See you in a couple weeks!
We’ve considered adding bike building to our book of business for many years. It’s a natural progression! We have a love for bikes, the skill and tools for metal fabrication, and a constant requests for bikes.
This first build, #001, is a beautiful original 1949 Harley Davidson Panhead. We are building it as a shop project to give you a sniff of what we’re cooking over here…

We are proud to announce that Brian Auderers "The Jewel" will be gracing the cover of Rod and Custom. This one is kind of historic because it is the last feature car to hold the Cover of Rod and Custom as the magazine will be no more. Our friend Rob Fortier came out to shoot the car and wrote the article in part with owner Brian Auderer. This issue also features show coverage of the Lone Star Round Up which is put on by our good friends the Kontinentals.
Go find it on news stands now while you still can.
Sometimes it starts with a simple idea that grows into something wonderful. This 1941 Zephyr is a great example of just that.
Toss around some ideas, get an amazing rendering and get busy. That is just what we are doing with this one. Watch our projects page for alot more on this build.
