10 years ago today we lost a legend.

“The right bike, the right day, the right road, I just pretty much feel at one with the universe. When I feel like I don’t fit anywhere or I’m lonely or I’m like all screwed up in the head, I get on my bike and go for a ride and it’s like all of the sudden, I’m fixed”

People pretend to know Larry. I didn't.... but his style and talent made an impression on the motorcycle building community.

I had never heard of him until recently. Apparently many years after his death. Watched a few of the old build off reruns. Liked his style and attitude.

cant claim to have Known him, but knew/know a lot about him. I did meet him few times while attending his annual block party and once at Javitz Center, n he was by far the friendliest "big builder" I've met. Willing to take a minute n just BS with his fans. He was from a different school than the others who sign their name, maybe shake ur hand n push ya away to get to next in line. Soooo much resect for his personality and his style of building I now have half a sleeve dedicated to his memory, n his question cross on my opposite shoulder. He was the man, n I for one will never let his legacy die.
-RIP Indian Larry Desmedt now n forever!!!

Watch him on biker build off and some other online things and thats it, he didn't seem to compromise himself just for T.V or let his ego get stupid
He made all other bike builders on biker build-off look like children, not by his skills but the way he carried himself...At the beginning they all talk smack about the person they were up against which is alright...but most over do it and end up making themself look stupid.

Always like the way larry ended this one...

Probably why you don't see a lot of motorcycles parked outside the shrink's office.

I always liked his neck tatoo, very neat and cool. He was a true bad to the bone Old school biker. His bikes were all classics.
