Cycle Porn #128

Hail to the Chief.

Like This.

It's 81 degrees here in the D today and you can almost smell summer. This pic reminds me of what I have in store for myself come July. There is NOTHING like long distance travel by scooter.

Up, Up and Away...

Just in case there are girls on the moon.....

Cycle Porn #127

Samsonite (yes that Samsonite) made this cool little kiddie chopper in '72. The sprout is Moto.Lux who noticed this post and sent me an image of himself back in the day on his Samsonite! How cool is that?!

Some cool new things found their way to my door and I'm stoked about it. Thanks to Beverly Roberts (daughter of "Flash" from the Detroit Outlaws) for "Portraits of American Bikers" the second instalment of pics from her dad's huge collection of images he created. REALLY good stuff! Get your hands on a copy ASAP!

Also, Thanks to Andrew from "One Percent" magazine - a lovely new rag by my new favorite Kiwi's. Looks like they are in the know over there and living the life proper.


Suzi Greenway's this Sunday!!!!

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Hope to see you there buddy.

Want to take a good rip through the twisty bits West of the D? Sunday is your day then. Suzi Greenway's bi-annual All Clubs Day is happening this Sunday in downtown Stockbridge. Get your shit in order and make the run. It's the most eclectic rally you'll find and the roads are the best in the lower mitten. See you all there. Suzi says show up around 10am.

Bike Night in Plymouth Tonight!

40 from the Ann Arbor Vintage Bike Show

My second bike as a wee lad.

My third bike as a wee lad - I still own this one. Kinda weird that they were parked next to one another.

Help kill the Nazi's!

Skateboard stuff from my time has officially become "vintage". Time flies.

Auction was packed. 10 dollar bikes were the rage. A watched a thrashed Stringray go for a buck!

My pick of the show - 1970's Shriner mini-minibike. I made what I thought was a very respectable (read $700) offer only to be laughed at by the owner - who turned out to be a total dipstick.

Sweet homemade job out of stainless. Killer cute.

This freaked me out a little - these two plates sat there as photographed...Denise is my sister.

PERFECTION. Hipster's were wetting themselves.

I loved this one too. Check all the details...

$120 could have brought home this sharp little Elgin.

Please - no smoking.

Yesterday I ran over to the annual spring Ann Arbor Classic Bike Show and Mini-Bike Show. Found some great pedals for the Wasp, ate a hot dog, fell in love with a mini-bike (need a pit bike for Bonneville this year) and bumped into a ton of characters. Always a great time.
