Burn the Goat

The annual tradition of burning down the Christmas goat was once again a sensation. Bigger, better looking and hotter than ever before ...

Who set the fire...

Where does my stuff live today?

About 12-15 years ago I sold a pile of mighty good and rare stuff that was collecting dust on my shelf. Sometimes I wonder where it all ended up? The WR tanks, the Wico magneto, all the Flanders bars and risers, the NOS Bates seat set, the Lake injectors, the Speed-e-shifter, the Roth bird deflectors...did you buy any of these parts? Send me a pic! Would love to see the bikes where it all ended up!

Mysterious SoCal Bellytank

Everyone refused to tell us anything about this superkool Bellytank at Chips place...

The most awesome airbrush I've ever seen! And I have seen a lot. Seriously. The folds and wrinkles, the tears and tapes...all airbrush. Dru Blair did it...hats off!

Chips original Art Center model, done for a Chrysler sponsor project in 8th term,  that heavily inspired the crew that later did the Prowler.

Walle and my buddy Thrass outside Chip's. I read about Walle & Kalle, Jonny & Jarmo in swe magz like Wheels way back in the early -80's. They were all part of the SoCal Hot Rod scene, as well as part of the original crew at Boyd's. Walle probably laid his hands on pretty much every showcar that came out of Boyd's and Chip's place. We fall to our knees...

SUGG MC: Constant Sorrow...(breakdowns of the -90's)

Broken chain-shit...(on my Tri; shouldn't this stuff happen only on bicycles? Wtf?!).

Broken Primary...(Henx Trimph...actually think Labbe did the deed).

Broken head gasket...(Jony just tore it apart and whipped it back toghether like others change the plugs).

Broken glasses...(Boba examined a stone a bit too close at 100kmh).

Broken battery...(judging by Henx posture in the background I think Pelle's sporty broke down a lot).

Broken conrod...(Ola, Eskil MC, created a crazy "Norton Lamp" the hard way by letting the conrod clean up the case and rip straight thru the front downtube while at it).
Broken Norton...(Pelle's Cafe Racer seized up big time, the only oil left on the bike was found in the rear rim).
Broken Beemer...(nah, can't be? Impossible, or?! My brother Daf, on the right, is truly shocked! So is Jessica too, on the left).
Broken turntable... (some Rebel thought it was a grand idea to bring a record player to the Music Festival).

Broken something... (or another on my Tri, anyway, it was after the x-mas run 20 years ago almost to the day).

Broken clutch lever...(and, oh right, nose).

Bad Ass Victory Bob Job

Some shots of my buddy Greg Brew's Bob Job Victory  This thing is seriously sin-steeped wicked! I dig it!

Guess I'm not alone...the Living Deads bass player, Symphony, also seems to dig it the most!

A good quality Jacket should be able to stand up for itself!

My buddy Fuchs is showing us what sets a good quality canvas jacket apart from...purty much everything else!
