He called from his truck, made an appointment to see the place the next morning, and signed a lease three days later. The first time he walked in, the word that came to mind was “dump.” The 3,000 sq. warehouse had been occupied by an auto mechanic for several years, and then for the previous year it had been a bread bakery. It’s a motorcycle shop, art gallery, music venue, and event space, but it’s also something more.
“So it was a combination of the guy who didn’t clean up very well, the auto mechanic, and then the baker…he made a mess. SBC is an alternative universe, the distillation and perhaps evolution of some of the South Bay’s and particularly El Segundo’s proudest traditions — precision mechanics and a defiant but pronouncedly unbothered inclination to go one’s own damned way.
So I ended up in a lot of trouble.” Being a mechanic was more than a vocation for Schreiber, but an almost spiritual endeavor.
He was the son of a mechanic who’d grown up bouncing back and forth between Redondo and Lomita, and from the age of six would find machines and appliances in other people’s trash and start taking them apart and putting them back together.His reason for founding South Bay Customs sounds a lot like what many artists say about their calling to create art. A photographer who shot Robbin Holden once described her as “the calmest person I ever met.” She’s a self-taught artist with a bent towards assemblage, steampunk and darkly Victorian art who knows every good swap meet and antique store in a 100 mile radius and pores over art and design magazines for ideas or art she can clip out. So it’s been ongoing, but spending time and realizing that low-brow artists are not the same …it’s just a different type of person.Writer Jack Kerouac famously wrote, “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn…” “For some people, it’s going to to burn a way out of them if they don’t let it out. I don’t have a degree and I’m not pretentious.” “I have to give Robbin credit for her influence.He quit his job with Harley Davidson before he could be fired, again. His passion was to build motorcycles from the ground up, his own way, less overtly stylized than typical custom bikes. His girlfriend Robbin Holden was an artist and a classic car enthusiast.Together they felt the stirrings of a different kind of vision for how they could build a life. The space, which was part of a strip mall, wasn’t big enough.Rock ‘n’ roll not as a musical genre but a way of life. He thought we were a bunch of stuck up assholes who sit on our pedestals and judge people.Schreiber, to whom the idea art was anathema prior to meeting Holden 10 years ago, has been described in the custom motorcycle press both as a master of his craft and an artist. All he wants to do is work on bikes and listen to rock ‘n’ roll, that was his thing.“If he didn’t do this he would wind up in a padded cell. You watch true artists, like a great guitar player, and you think, ‘Man, if he wasn’t doing this, he’d catch fire.’ It’s like an exorcism. It’s definitely art to me, man.” Schreiber is, if not taciturn, self-contained. “So we met at another bar, and had the world’s worst, most awkward first date ever,” Schreiber said. We are not clicking, it was uncomfortable, and we ended up going our seperate ways that night. ’” He didn’t hear from her until about a week later, on his birthday, when she called and left a message wishing him a happy birthday. I was super naive to what art really even meant or could be before I met her,” Schreiber said.He’s deliberate in most things, including whom he lets in his life. “I kind of had this opinion that everyone who is into art is an arty kind of person.UPS Supply Chain Solutions is currently seeking a Customs Brokerage Representative II.The ideal candidate will have a minimum of one year Customs Brokerage / Import / Export experience and will be familiar with HTS, customs regulations and OGA clearances.
