Knuckle Bobber with Dogs


Cool ride from Back to the Beach. Everything but the kitchen sink and one of those cool windshield Dr Sprocket likes so much.

Back To The Beach

We will be heading out in a few hours to Ventura, CA for the Back to the Beach car and motorcycle show. Wes, Jeff and I will be at the NLAMC booth trying to sell sweaters. If you are around stop by and say "hello."

An interesting observation

A friend sent in this picture and made some interesting observations about it. Anyone notice anything? Look closely at the people. Let's hear it people!

Memorial Day

The Wingnuts want to thank all of our veterans and all those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

A Day with The Wingnuts

We were filming for a TV show promo and I got the raw footage, so I thought I'd try out my iMovie skills. Watch out Speilberg, Flathead Jedd is on the job!

Chillin' with the 48 Pan

The guys said if I got me a Harley, the chicks would come to me. We'll I've been sittin' out here all day. Where are they?

Triumphant Resurrection of Jason's 52 Triumph

Wingnuts friend Jason has got his 52 Triumph up and running. According to the email it seems as though he's put a few miles on the beast already. Jason we really hope to see you and your bike at the next ride.

Back Up and Running

Ok, we're back. Had a little phone line/DSL problems this week, but it is all figured out. For now anyway. Just a reminder, Back To The Beach is May 30 in Ventura, California. Wes, Jeff and I will be there. Wes and I will be hocking the NLAMC line of Vintage Motorcycle Clothing. Stop by and say "hi" I always like to put a face with the emails. Hope to see you all soon because the riding season is upon us!

Von Dutch Chopper

This Triumph just sold on ebay for around $3200. It's a Von Dutch creation with authentication and the like. Does this seem low to anyone else? Has the Von Dutch craze ended? I might have actually bought this bike if I had any idea it would go so cheap. A few years ago this thing would have gone for five figures. It just goes to show, you never know. So keep hitting the swap meets and looking in the barns, cuz there still are good finds out there. Just share the wealth!


Pair o Pans

Have I posted this? I have so many friggin pictures on my computer, I can't keep track any more. I should put them all on a disk and get them off the computer. Then I can sell the disk and start over! Ha!

Almost summer..hang in there.

Win the used bike!

I think this says a lot about how much we have changed. The raffle bike is two years old. It's used! and I'll bet the winner was happier than a pig in mud. I would be even if I won an 07 H-D. Seems like (almost) everyone today expects free stuff and the best. "Oh I won a brand new Sportster? I kinda wanted a Road King." "I guess I'll take it." YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED! EARN IT! BE GREATFUL! Sorry just needed to vent.

End of an era

Well it is finally happening. Van Nuys Harley Davidson is closing it's doors this month. I think it's the last connection to the hey day of Van Nuys Bl Cruising. I bought a couple of bikes there over the years and it's kinda sad to see a smaller shop close up to make way for a mega HD store. Van Nuys HD is moving north and will be Santa Clarita HD. It will be big and freeway accessible just like the Motor Company likes. Bet they will still be out of any part I may need.

BSA Winner

Not sure of the year or the event. Is that a cowbell hanging from his neck? More cowbell!

Sportie and a Rocket 88

I'm getting excited. Jeff is helping me out and getting my Sportie going. So I couldn't resist posting a Sportster pic.

Chicks, guns and motorcycles! Can't beat that.

K model with stuff

Can any one name the car in the driveway? I used to have one before we became a "bike only" house.

Here's the backside

OK so it wasn't super crazy. I just though it would spark some conversation.

A Challenge

Here's the challenge. Are you paying attention Doc? This bike is chocked full of oddities. What are they and give me some history on them. I won't even pretend to know, cuz I don't.

I guess there has always been trailer queens.
