Hey! Anyone know where I parked my bike?


Now if I had to choose whether to be a Beetle or a Black Rebel, clearly I'd be a Beetle. Chino seemed to be more fun to hang around than Johnny. Too moody for me! As much as I like Chinos apparel, you've got to admit Johnny really has the classic biker look. I'm diggin' Johnny's look as well. So here it is a new poll. Beetle or Black Rebel. You decide.

Brando, as Johnny, is wearing what could be classified as a homoerotic costume these days.

Marvin, as Chino, nailed it.

While we're on the subject, does anyone have any photo's of Lee Marvin and James Coburn at the Catalina races? We have some 8mm
film but not stills.

Johnny's look is classic...going back almost 60 years now. Hell,Schott and Vanson leathers,among others,still sell these jackets.And never mind Levis and engineer boots.Look close at the Beetles, looks like they dressed from the Goodwill bin.

I agree with the previous commenter it was "Johnny" that fixed the classic, leather clad biker look in the mind of the public forever. I think Chino and the Beetles are or were closer to reality though than the BRMC though.
