13 Rebels

I've gotten a few replies from a 13 Rebel member. He's being quite vaque and I don't know his name. Whomever you are, I just want to document some of the clubs history here in So Cal. If you know it, please share. If not, do you have a club historian I could be put in touch with? Are you located out here or in the Dirty South? Let me know. I'm only trying to preserve history not infringe on your club.

Outlaw Vintage Flattrack is Back!

This is an excellent event. If you want to see hand shift Indians and Harleys duke it out on the dirt track this is the place to be. Triumphs screamin' round the track as well as the Hooligan class (1000cc). Thanks John and Jenny for keeping this going.

Welcome Back

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been away, not that you noticed thanks to Chopper Dave. My DSL was down. How in the world are we supposed to communicate with people without the internet. It's so barbaric.. I had another great conversation with Bob over the weekend and I have a new mission for everyone. I want shop names. Local shops that existed in your area back in the day. Let me know the names and any history you got.

Wanted!!!! Yellow Jackets, Sharks, 13 Rebels

I recently had a great conversation with Bob, a member of the Yellow Jacket MC from 1948-1951, and it occurred to me that I really need to get on this project of collecting information and photos. So here's your mission if you choose to accept it. Get me info on the early clubs. I want to find Sharks, Yellow Jackets, 13 Rebels, etc. Anyone hanging out at the Crash Inn, The Shanghai Red, The All American and the Big A. Who partied in the LA River bed down near Long Beach until the Sherrifs chased them off? Who raced the sand pit in Lomita and drank a beer on each lap? Who's got pictures of the early clubs and their sweaters? Find out! Ask around. I added an email address to the blog under "holler at us." It's temporary email, but use it to contact the Wing Nuts. I'll get back to you soon.
