The Shop Vancouver
Pro snowboarder T.J. Schneider has turned his passion for motorcycles -- or "sickles," as he calls 'em -- into a combination caf/shop in Vancouver, British Columbia. Custom java, all manner of bikes and an array of unique clothing lines run by friends make his new venture a welcoming space for any kind of moto enthusiast.
The current "shop bike": pro snowboarder Tyler Lepore's Triumph 500 "Mind Melter."

What You'll See At The Shop
A wooly Deus sweater with a giant wrench-skull? Check, top left. A classic bike like this 1962 Moto Guzzi Falcone? Check, top right. "Shop Class as Soulcraft," maybe a Bible for guys like Schneider and Beadle? Check, bottom.
T.J. Schneider shows off "The Sex Carpet," a ride he wrenched himself. Check that seat!
The Shop Vancouver carries Brixton, Red Wing, Levi's, Deus Ex Machina and more -- all hand-picked to fit the vibe of the operation.
The Shop has a great vibe whether you pilot a Prius or a chopper with a Sharpie'd Pantera paint job. A 1968 Triumph 500 Daytona stops in for a look-see on the right: fairly stock, fairly gorgeous.
