Episode Summary

Visit for Josh's cultural recommendations in New York City and beyond. After Josh Hadar left his first career as a documentary cameraman he entered the nightclub business by reforming and restoring the original Studio 54. This didn't make him happy either so he eventually sold his shares and took a cheap welding class. Shortly after, he created his first bike and his obsession took off from there. Today, Josh has become sort of a George Barris like character, custom building bikes that are collected by a cult following around the world. "What I love about metal sculpting and welding is that there is no standard building methods or techniques required to attain a desired result. I'm basically self-taught in my methods, which is predicated simply on trial and error. Each bike is a progression of intuitive process. The bikes seem to want to be built and the specific building methods seem to unfold as the development evolves. Like watching a film of an explosion run backwards, ideas, shapes and building techniques seem to come from total chaos and settle in one place."moreless
