Cole built this bike a few years ago and it was huge. There was some dispute about whether he was the original idea behind the bike but it sure brought a new style to choppers. Harleys no come with small wind deflectors. &0's racing style born again.
I find stuff like this inspiring. Found this ol girl on ebay and was in love. Bikes like these dont need much, a touch up and some paint work and you have one period correct chopper. You dont need a harley to have a chopper.
Im still thinking about a van. Im too pussy to get a bedford for my previous history with unreliability of vintage engine power. So i would have to get a jap van. But will it look cool? to custom or not to custom. Anyone got ideas?
Notice the jap triple? another reason for a great period. Multi-engined bikes. No not two engines on one bike but the amount of different engines that were used for showstoppers. Like today well a couple of years ago it was just harleys! but the period correct bikes are changing that!
Now i would just like to say thanks to those who showed support when i needed it. Asitwas is mine, i started it and if you don't like it leave. Some photos aren't mine but like alot of other blogs whos are. I offer my opinions on the industry and photos and thats how i differ.
All i know is that i won't be pushed into doing what others want. amen
First the early call, then the harassment from the girl. Use the credit card but no money so no food. Now I get the usual stare from society. I get agitated so I go home to hide. What a shit day. I suit up, grab the keys and turn the bike over. The sound blurs my thoughts. I’m in my element. First gear, second gear and I hit the road jack and I won’t come back until it all......... goes...... away.
With the retro huge and the modern small whats next is a hard question to answer concerning the motorcycle industry. Why do we like new or old styles and why not? I guess im just a sheep but i like the period perfect bikes at the moment more then the cutting edge ones because i JUST do.
You don't need to be outlaws to start a club, or have a back patch. If you have mates with the same ideals and thoughts as you start a social chopper club. Have meetings, embrace your brotherhood and practise a dieing culture.
