I got this email after my previous post of Jack Pines.
"Hello Here is a pic of my 1950 Pan Jack Pine racer. It was raced by Frank Dean of Dean's HD Souderton Pa. Feel free to use the photo if you like. It is currently on display at The National Motorcycle Museum in Annamose, Iowa. Dave Minerva"
Jeff Wright said it best: Now there are 3 majors. Born Free, Brooklyn, and Mama Tried. Holy shit. I heard word of 5000 people attending. I can't thank Warren and Scott enough for having us and putting on an incredible show. It was amazing to see how far people traveled to get there as well. I love Milwaukee. Good friends, the beer flows like water, and motorcyclists get treated very well. I will attend this show as long as it keeps happening.
Garret is currently building a 45. This thing is going to rule. It may be a long shot, but he needs a pre 1947 front fender to match the bitchin' rear fender that he picked up. If you can help get him closer to completion, please email me NickResty@Gmail.com. Thanks players.
Red Hot Chili Peppers were only cool in Thrashin' and Point Break. Here are some photos that DLaw took one day when the weather was perfect back during that one season called Fall. He's one of my favorite photographers. I always knew him from shooting skateboarding, then one day he asked me if I'd ever seen anything by a photographer named Danny Lyon. I knew he was going to be good at shooting motorcycling ever since then. I miss good weather.
I always crack up when I get around snobby "chopper" people. Those of you that know most of us personally know that we are the types of dudes that don't really give a shit what you ride, as long as you ride. Yeah, we may fuck with each other about their crooked sissy bar or their 4 cylinder Honda sounding like an angry hornet, but seriously who gives a fuck? Whether it be a chopper, blobbler, race bike, rollerblade..... fucking right on. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate great craftsmanship and stack-o-dime welds as much as the next dude.... but in my opinion, if a bike looks drooling-ly awesome as a whole, that's what's up. You know, those bikes you see and they make you want to RIDE them as well? Going back to my original comment, I love it when I hear people talk down on a bike because it is "bolted together". This bike is bolted together.
