As a father, the dream is to make sure you pass down the skills you possess to your children to help mold them into the person that you are today. Teaching your kids these valuable traits will instill your values in them as well as help give them direction in life. For Louie Ramirez of Ontario, California, one of those skills he passed down to his sons, Luis and Michael, was how to build lowriders. Louie has been building his own lowriders for over three decades and he knows that building these projects will show his kids the value of hard work and reaching a set goal.

To start things off, the inspiring father and his sons went looking for bike frames at the swap meet to begin their newest project, a couple of lowrider beach cruisers. Michael’s frame for “Orange Nightmare” was purchased for $80 while the frame for Luis’ “El Buitre” was taken home for only $50. The bikes were then dropped off at Cal Blast where Albert DeAlba Jr. added the body modifications before prepping it and painting it. The boys would like to thank their parents, grandparents, and godparents.
