good dudes

It looks like the new Street Chopper is out (even though we don't even have them at the office!) i picked this one up at Fullerton HD last saturday. I had the pleasure of shoot Domenic and his 16-year old son Dylan for the cover and a 5-page feaute on Dylan's '65 Panhead which he started working on when he was 8! Now that the bike is on the road and he has a license to drive, he and his old man are racking up the miles and pulling in some trophies. the Pan won his class at the Grand National Roadster Show in January and just won at the Long Beach Autorama. Go Dylan!
THis issue also has another Denvers bike, Danny G's evo, the Foundry Pan, Garry Littlejohn and Jeff Wright intervies and more.

Look for the issue at: you local HD dealer, Barnes & Noble, Wal-Mart, Books A Million, Borders, Hastings, 7-Eleven, Safeway, Albertsons, Ralphs, Stater Bros., King Soopers, Target, Rite Aid, Safeway Canada, Hy Vee Food Stores, Presse Food & Drug, Smiths, Kroger, Winn-Dixie, Save Mart, CVS, Food Lion, Kmart, Ingels Markets, SuperValu, HE Butt Grocery, Schnuck Markets, Stop & Shop and Giant Eagle Stores.

See you next week, no sleep til brooklyn. I left Harpoon in a trance of Morano Pearl and dust bunnies...

after a 29 year sleep this shovel soaks up some familiar Califonia sunshine. THe real-deal '70s SoCal survivor, barn-find, long bike. legit. molded frame, frisco mount tank, morano pearl laquer, pan/knuck trans, kick only, 12-over early glide, cheetah seat, bayonet sissy bar...etc...

Rock and Roll shows

Got a couple Beautiful Buzzards shows coming up in Orange COunty. Next Thursday at La Cave in Costa Mesa with Wulfbane and Sleeping Sea King, show is free come early we open.
The following tuesday the 27th we are at the Detroit Bar, free, come early.

killer bus

I didn't grow up in SoCal and wasn't a hippie either so i wasn't into vintage VW stuff, but i've always dug it when i see slammed bugs, buses, etc. THis guy was jammin down the 91 the other day on my way home and it was on the ground!

Also, i have to appologize to those that have order stuff recently. we are running a little behind, but everything will go out tomorrow for sure! Hang tight and we appriciate your biz!

only natural

because where else are you gonna put em while on the road?

This was from hotel in Camerillo a couple of years ago (seeing as my bike is nowhere close to being like this anymore) when we went for the Primer Nationals. can't make it this year regretably but you all know already to go to the show, the open house at Dan's Old Gold Garage (we are a sponsor) and the Dice party.

Me and the Poon had a good time layin down some Night Moves getting up there. i just remembered that i hyper extended my knee in the Harley dealer parking lot sunday morning, hurt more than i could imagine. I foolishly thought they might have a small circlip i needed that jumped ship on the road. the bandana-suited patrons that apparently hang out in the parking lot were already lookin at me funny for doing that crazy hopping motion thing to try and start my bike, then the knee thing happened and they were all glad to own their Roadkings.

doubled over

Man, i think i got some low grade food poisoning from the chicken Katsu at L&L Hawaiian on tuesday. Woke up yesterday with a terrible stomach ache and the back door trots.
Spent the day on the couch and the can. So Clyde and i watched a couple of flicks. one of them was The Hi-Riders by Greydon Clark fromn '77.
