    Dug this hilarious shot out of the archives. This is from the first year Dave and I went to Interbike; before I was officially involved with the Co., before there was any money to afford a booth, and before e13 had even been dreamed up.


    The conversation went something like this:
    Weagle: Hey guys, can I get a picture with you? My name's Dave Weagle, and I'm going to be designing bikes someday soon.
    Tomac/Bradbury: Uhh, yeah . . . sure. (confused looks on their faces)

    I guess Dave got the last laugh. :)

    Most definitely. There was a green one, too. Dave, Paul, and I built those up in my shed and nearly died in the process - first from hypothermia because it was so f-ing cold out there, and later from smoke inhilation when we tried to light my clapped-out woodstove. Ahh, the bad-old days. :D

    That's Dunstan's old Subaru in the pic, too. :)

    Edit: just noticed Seth's molester-mobile poking in the side of that pic, too! If you added my Dodge Dakota, Dave's Ram, and Carleton's mini-van, you'd have the entire original Evil motor pool.

    ha! i still have this bike---bought it from in the trees about 2 years ago, and i plan on riding it until i have to reweld it and ride it some more!!!!

    it's absolutely the best bike i've ever ridden, loved it, abused it, slept on it, bled on it.....
    @ in the trees : i'll have to upload a pic so you can see what it looks like now!

    man, i wish evil would make some more bikes like this and definitely do some version of the empire. i'm always angry that i can't find the geometry of the imperial on a dh......

    Not an Evil Imperial, but if I had a $ for every time someone came up to me and said, "Nice Evil" or "Nice Imperial"...

    Here are some shots of my imperial is various builds over the years. While all my other rigs seem to break or become outdated, my imperial is still at the top of the list.
