Pretty sweet bikes!

That white one done up like Dutch porcelain is crazy! WTF?!

I'd definitely take your sister out on a date on any of those bikes.

Wow. That square-framed knucklehead? Not so much.
Both ends of the spectrum represented here. Thanks for the pics Hal!

Hate them or Love them....
The Japs have made a very strong name for them the
style of putting together a neat motorcycle!

Those are pretty sweet, but I think I like the bikes outside better.. that's just me.

I like the irreverence while having a good eye for style. (most (?) of the time). And as far as their worship of James Dean etc.... (see McGoo's parking lot story) It's nice to be looked up to for something! (USA)

The high thunderheader on the panhead was badass. The drilled flathead was cool too. Molded frames a plenty...

Gotta love the soft-tails being represented.

Commented on 12-6-2012 At 10:07 pm

There are no softails there, dude.

I believe you're referring to swing arm bikes. I only correct you because someone complimented my friend's bike by saying,"nice softail, man!"

He said,"thanks, but it's not a softail."

And the dudes girlfriend laughed in his face.

I'm saving you the trouble.

Shits is Nutzzzz

Commented on 12-7-2012 At 07:56 pm

man. loved the jap style of bikes because they were not headed for the 70s flaked out molded long bikes...... but looks like thats where things are headed there too. mooneyes from a couple years back had cooler bikes. but what do i know.

still some serious stuff going on over there

Commented on 12-8-2012 At 02:59 am

Cool bikes for sure, but is anyone concerned that there are so many classic american bikes over across the pacific (or in shipping containers as we speak)? its a shame to see them leave our great country. Sorry just a rant but much respect to all the builders over there.

Commented on 12-8-2012 At 03:53 am

Great bikes, great pictures. Thanks!

Commented on 12-8-2012 At 08:10 pm
