You know I'm a parking lot kinda guy. The show bikes (at whatever event?) are always polished and blah blah blah, but the bikes in the parking lot are what draws my attention. Little Yamaha Chop at the VVMC Rally 9/14/2013.
1969 Harley Shovelhead with clear 69 HD california title in my name.
Just about every piece of this bike was modified in some subtle way by the best guys in the business!
The tanks are Panhead tanks that where narrowed and shortened, but still hold 3 gallons of fuel! The dash is the stock dash, and was also modified to be smaller. The bars are narrowed Panhead bars with internal throttle. It's a jockey shift and rocker clutch set up. The stock primary was cut down and re-shaped without the electric start hump. The frame was modified with Panhead drop seat lugs. The front trees are Noise Cycles aluminum narrow wide glide trees with the stock legs and a Norton Twin leading shoe brake. The seat is a leather seat with memory foam by the Haifley Bros. The rear fender and fender stays have been shortened and re-shaped.
The oil cooler and sissy bar are the most recent additions.
There is much more. Email Michael directly @ email@example.com
I read somewhere there's something like 30 million blogs on the world wide webosphere now... but here's one somebody has put some serious miles into (see map below)
If you've got a couple hours to kill and enjoy a good photography motorcycle blog, I think you'll enjoy this one. He's been at it (coincidentally?) since August 2008 (the same month and year I started this little gem of a Lady Hump) (although this dude has put wayyyyy more miles than I ever have, obviously).
