Lossa Engineering‘s open house was a good time for all. Local radio station KROQ was there pumping tunes, there were some good food trucks – even a desert truck. Aside from all of the good stuff to take in from Lossa’s shop alone, there were tons of awesome bikes that people rode in on. There were vintage Ducatis, Benellis, Gileras, Triumphs, Hondas, Moto Guzzi’s…a great turn out! On top of all that, Sean and Jason from British Customs were there with two of their bikes and some of the guys from The Speed Merchant with a few of their bikes as well. If you missed it, you really missed it.
Jay’s shop was clean and impressive with plenty off bikes with potential waiting to get ‘the treatment’. At Lossa they do just about everything from scratch – weld, fabricate sheet metal, machine, paint, upholster, rebuild motors and so on. The only part of their bike builds they don’t do in house is the powder coating, chroming, zinc plating and polishing. The bike hanging from the ceiling above is a Yamaha RD400 that Jay and famous LA-based bike builder Yoshi Kosaka of Garage Company built together for Cafe Racer season 2.
Jay is selling replica builds of his now famous ‘Poco Bastardo’ CB160 built for actor Jason Lee. Get ’em while there hot!
British Customs was representing with two of their bikes, the ‘Back to Basics’ Bonneville and their cafe racer Thruxton that can be caught on Cafe Racer Season 2 in October.
