Well we're back from our mini Florida retirement trip with the ladies! Don't know if that's good or bad, but at least we got our heads in the right place (the sand) to brew up some ideas for next year's Stange Days 2. We're sun burned, fat, and broke; so it's time to get the ideas flowing with the whiskey that replaces warm weather.
Living the 70-year old life aint too bad.
Who wants her!? So here's our canvas. This thing is going to be an all out fuckin' trip when we're done with her. Yep, the plan is to raffle off a CB750 chopper next summer, so stay tuned for updates and pictures of our progress. You don't wanna miss this...
This pan is gorgeous. So many cool little touches make this bike a subtle beauty. When do you see the sidecar loops incorporated into a crazy mold job (and left open)? Probably never! Don't forget the rigid front end, chain sissy bar, wild neck molding, and that awesome rear pipe. I also like how the fender isn't laying on the rear tire.
Here's another picture I found of it. Gotta say I like the first version better. I never really understood the whole Kim-Tab wheel craze. The AR mag is cool but the spokes do it for me on this chop.
Stopped at the local Harley dealer a couple days ago since my girlfriend's stepdad needed a couple parts, and usually I never expect to see anything worthwhile. Then I heard an old motor and saw a guy pulling in on this perfect knuckle. A fuckin pristine '47 EL. Made my day.
I can't remember if I posted these already or not, but oh well. Jesse (OJ from N.H.) sent me these pics of his dad's Crazy Frank shovel back in the day; New Orleans about 1979. It doesn't get any cooler than this; thanks again man!
