The Horse Back Street Chopper

Two of my photos of Handsome Troy on his Triumph chopper made it into the latest issue of The Horse! Totally honored to have any work in print, let alone in the best bike rag out there. Go pick up a copy, Troy and I will be signing them at Barnes & Noble on Division tomorrow from 6 until we get kicked out.

Jeff Wright is wildly talented in a lot of ways, but his bikes are just out of this world. Really can't even explain how bright this dude is, super nice too. Spend some time HERE and he'll be your hero right quick too.

About Us

Live Young Die Fast was born out of a refusal to grow up, a refusal to conform and a general refusal to do what we've always been told to do. Call it what you will, but we prefer the term "Peter Pan complex" around these parts. We make and sell clothes however our main goal is to promote a lifestyle of doing what it is that makes you happy, chasing your dreams and never giving up. This is an effort made up of many members of the LYDF Family, a "collective conscious" if you will. With the visibility of running a clothing company and website we believe there comes a social responsibility to create positive change as well. We try to involve ourselves in and promote as many charitable events as we can and try to give back to our local community as much as possible. Yes, in the simplest form we sell clothes we think are rad, but we hope to better the lives of those around us as well. If you dig it, that's rad; if not, oh well. Thanks for visiting the site. Love you, mean it.

Granite Sports & Logo Wear

Folks often ask where we get our stuff printed and who to turn to for their printing projects. Well, Marty at Granite Sports & Logo Wear is the only dude in central MN to go to. Great guy to work with, great product and priced right. Tell him Jon sent you, he'll take care of what you need.

This thing is going to be wild when it's done. Troy is doing a great job of resurrecting this glorious bastard.
