Early Pictures

I have a request for all the viewers of the site. Please send me your pictures! This site is not just the Wing Nuts, but belongs to all of you as well. We get a lot of emails and comments requesting info and we do what we can to comply, but we don't have all the answers. I'm really looking for early club and race pictures. Mostly 40s and 50s. So if you can help, I'd appreciate it. I am trying to track down an early picture of the Galloping Goose patch from the 40s. It was triangle shaped. I've got a viewer who is really trying to find photographic evidence of this elusive patch. Any help would be appreciated.

Yellow Jackets and Boozefighters?

Came across this picture recently. I don't know much about it. It appears as though the gentlemen on the outsides are wearing Yellow Jacket MC jersey. If anyone know anything about this picture or the guys in it, please let me know.

A Wing Nut Christmas

Ever wonder what the Wing Nuts do on Christmas morning. Well they go to church of course. Our version of church. Taking the desert sleds out to the dirt and ride until we pass out. Wes was caught kneeling at the alter.

Hey Wes nice bike. Ride your own!

Another fun part at Day in the Dirt was riding our old two springers around the pits and down in the "hole." Wes was having a blast and spent more time on my T100SC than I did. Look out Boozefighters, Wes is a comin' through.

Chino at Day in the Dirt

As some of you may know the Wing Nuts and the NLAMC went to our first motocross event recently at the Day in the Dirt. We had a great time. This competitor on his vintage Husky decided to race in class when he purchased a Chino from us and wore it on the track. This was a thrill for us cuz as far as we know it's our first race jersey to actually be raced!

An artist perspective by Tom Fritz

Wing Nut friend and incredible artist Tom Fritz has done what only an artist eye can do. Inspired by some shots I posted of Crater Camp, he returned to the scene of the crime to photograph the same shot today. I've been known to do this from time to time, but not with the precision Tom has. I now share his experiment with you.

The hill as it sits today.

A little magic overlay.

Another overlay and finally how the hill was back in the day.

Very cool Tom. Some of those home owning bastards don't even know that the track ran right through their house!

Another Wes White Four Aces Creation

For some reason Wes is one of the worst self promoters I know. So I'll do it for him. This is the latest show bike to come out of Four Aces Cycle. This is a beautiful period perfect pre unit Triumph complete with chrome frame and Nick-o-teen paint. I'm honored to have such a talented bike builder as a business partner, club member and a friend. With all that said Wes, when is my transmission gonna be done!

Bobbed Ariel

This may not be a new bike to some of you, but I recently came across it on the internet and liked it. Nice looking period bobbed Ariel with what looks like a Crocker tail light. I'm also fascinated by the finned timing cover. Aftermarket? Anyone know anything about these or this bike?

More rider's cap action

Harpoon, the biggest thing in Japan since Godzilla

Seems as of late NLAMC products are popping up everywhere. Our friend and famous painter Harpoon is sporting his Chino at the Mooneyes show in Japan. Harpoon's a good guy and has gone on a few of the Wing Nuts rides with us.

Our friend Juan Parker

WNMC friend and NLAMC customer John sent us these cool pics of himself riding up near the Rock Store. Amazing how a good looking Indian and a NLAMC sweater can make anyone look like a movie star!

A little WR action for your viewing pleasure

Same ole view

All's good for the leader of the pack. No need for goggles or a bandanna. Those poor bastards in the back get to stare at his butt and eat dust the whole trip!

Beezer gettin' it on!

Gotta love them pie plates.
