Guess who.

Who are these two good looking skinny future Wing Nuts?

Bobber Launch

To me this is getting the front tire off the ground. If you can see light under the tire, it's a wheelie!

Happy family

Ridin' Double

The last time I rode on the back of a bike was with Chopper Dave somewhere around 1989. It was the LAST time I rode on the back of a bike.

Well Dressed Knuckle

Lots of good period bolt ons. Chrome forks. Pretty swanky. I guess that explains the sheepish grin.

Looks like a 1933 H-D.

I love kids in bowler hats. It's so Little Rascals.

A thing of beauty.

Stopped by Wes' today and despite the profanities spewing from his mouth at V-Twin, I observed this thing of beauty pushed over into the corner. There sat this 1950 Triumph cut down. It belongs(ed) to Wing Nut Brian and made the trip down from Oregon to a customer here in So Cal. This bike is a thing of beauty. It appears to be an original cut down from back in the 50s. I'm assuming the front fender from a 2 stroker was a later add on due to pesky fender laws. There's just the right amount of crust on this old girl. Pretty much everything not on the bike is in a box on the other side of the shop. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the paint is pretty cool. There's even a little pinstriping on the lower legs. Red with just a little touch of white. Very classy. She is most definitely a looker. Not cute like a puppy, but beautiful like a true lady should be. I kinda hope the sale falls through and I can tell Brian that in order to be a full fledged Wing Nut he has to donate the bike to......well me.

Cool bars. Flanders? Hellings and Stellings? Biltwell Aces?

A ride's a comin'!

Hoping to have a ride put together real soon. Remember all are welcome, even you Dave!

I love this guy!

Full fendered, bags a draggin", up a dirt hill. The biggest mistake I ever made was painting my bike! I did all this stuff on my Flattie before I made it purty.

Indian Scout Hill Climber

Saw this cool little dirt thrower on ebay. Check out that crazy sprocket!

Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos

How bad ass is Sgt Fury! Looks like the date on this graphic novel is 1947. Perhaps the last year bikers could be heroes.

Biker Chick

Vintage Cuban race winner

Based on the fact that this is Cuba, I would say this picture and race winner are circa 1985! Nice Pepsi sponsorship.

Auburn M.C. Club Sweater

Came across this recently on ebay. Very cool design. Everyone was asking about a "buy it now" price and offering some high dollars. I know some guys at the NLAMC that could make that sweater if anyone was interested. If you know anything about the club, please post the info for all.

Yes, the much anticipated 5 Years on the Great White Dyno Commemorative Teeshirt is HERE and ready to ship. We use the money we get from selling these shirts to help fund our BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS racing addiction. Get them while they are HOT and in stock. Sizes are going quickly and we always sell out so don't hesitate, send a PAYPAL payment of $20 per shirt to or if you are overseas, send $26. PLEASE make sure you tell me what size you need. Don't forget to buy one for your favorite GIRL!! Trust me she is gonna want one. For you young guys, a little word of advice from the old man (42 this year!), even if she says she does not want one, BUY IT ANYWAY!!

Leo Anthony Tanks

Matt Walksler from Wheels Through Time was kind enough to share some photos of the tanks from Leo Anthony's race bike. Unfortunately this is all that remains. Thanks Matt. Very cool.
