Battistinis, Chopper Crizy. . . . .
There is a time and a place for everything and this is very much the place but in truth very much after the time that we should have given our good friend Chopper Crizy some props on this very blog! We first met Crizy when he turned up at our old shop and said in his minimal English that may as well been Spanish, “Im here to work”!!!!!
On this very first day we found out that he was useless at making tea, had nowhere to stay, had come from Barcelona, liked fast times and had just customised our ‘snap-on’ roll cab by drilling it like a sive so he could then rivet the sockets to the drawer! THANKS!!!!
After the several weeks that past and we were stuck with him we learnt a lot about Crizy. In truth he did not learn to much English which was his whole reason for him coming over to annoy us (well thats apart from every offensive word you could ever imagine)! However since that visit he has come back to haunt us from time to time and with that the case has become one very good friend especially when we are Barcelona bound and he shows us one amazing place after another!
If it’s custom bikes, hotrods, partys, rock ‘n’ roll, tattoos, skateboards or anything good that you are after he is the man to get in touch with if you are ever Barcelona bound!
And also his photo blog here:
