Redface Redskin

This '40 Chief has been transformed over two years from a 'bastard case' to an award-winning, fine-running bob-job by Dave 'Redface' Tucker.

Talked to him last night about the tribulations involved in this project: "cock-ups, letdowns and bullshit" is how he described having to deal with one well known machine shop. In the end, he drove up there, retrieved his boxes of engine parts and did everything himself with the help of good friends like 'Indian Tim' Berry.

It deservedly won best bike at Low Level 2 and best Indian at Linkert Aattcks.

My hat is off to you mate. Beautiful job.

Feature coming soon in the next issue.

Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally 2014

Took a ton of pictures at yesterday's VVMC 2014 Rally!
Let's see, across the country is was a pretty damn nice day, Savannah was 91, Boston 67, Shreveport 68 (i'll bet that was mooggy), and Venice CA came in at a near perfect non-summer-summer day at 93. Everybody wear a black t-shirt! Ha ha. Great times at the Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally. Pics all week long of motorcycles and related tom-foolery.

2014 Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show - Part 1

The 5th Annual Rad's Extra Sharp Motorcycle Show was held yesterday at the Bass Lake Cheese Factory in Somerset, WI.  It was my 4th consecutive year attending the show and I really like this one because I usually bring the family (they follow in the car).  Also, what's not to like about the combination of cheese, beer, and motorcycles?  It was a chilly morning but the sun was shining and it warmed up in the afternoon.

I rode my Sportster and was bummed that I couldn't enter it in the show as it didn't fit in ANY of the available categories.  In each of the previous 3 years, I entered and won trophies in the Sportster and Mild H-D classes (whichever was available).  My rear fender section is much-improved over last year.  Would I have taken home a 4th trophy?  We'll never know.

If there was a Sportster category, Kevin's and Ryan's could have given me a run.

Kevin's new blue tank looks great and his bike has a great lean.

The tank Spencer hand painted looks awesome on Ryan's.

Here's a shot of Kevin, Ryan, and one of the two Corys leaving.

This panhead belongs to the other Cory.  I met him on the Ride for Larry Pierce.  The Yamaha is his friend's.  They were camping in case you're curious where all the mud came from.

More bikes and a few 4-wheeled vehicles are next!


I was pretty surprised yesterday when I saw STRANGE DAYS on the cover of the latest issue of Cycle Source at the local market!
Thanks to Matt Aims for the photos and first hand account write-up.  And thanks to CYCLE SOURCE magazine for the support.  Pick up a copy!

Cocaine Bandit Sighting...

I picked up the latest issue of Wrench magazine; mainly for insanely cool feature on Larry Pierce's white knucklehead chopper.  The photo shoot was done so perfectly, in true old school Easyriders fashion; definitely one that will go down in history.

I spotted a nice photo of the ol' Cocaine Bandit in the Ride To Skate feature, from when Willis brought her out to Philly this year.  Cool to see people still taking notice of the CB.

Grab a copy while ya can!

Budget Goldwing Seat build

Phil docked the rear fender on the Goldwing and started a new seat to replace the god awful stock "couch".
Keeping to a budget, Phil layered 1/2 inch carpet padding and started shaping it with a knife and the sander.

The shop is blessed to have an expert seamstress just a couple steps away, she is also the person that feeds us and keeps us out of jail!!  Thanks Jenny!!

Made a template out of parchment paper and created 3 pieces to sew together.  Sewed batting under the pleats to give them a little shape in the middle.

Phil has about 30 bucks in this seat to include the fiberglass, pad and vinyl.  Looks pretty good for his first time.
