Future

I never saw this version of this bike.  Someone must have ended up with it and started switchin' stuff up.
Here's the usual Jammer ad cone shovelhead version with a rear mag.

Taste of Retirement

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...

'78ish Glory Daze



More of O.J.'s old man.  That top black Crazy Frank picture defines cool, and dig that classy chrome front fender...

Beauty

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.

Weekend Sighting

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.

More from Jesse's Old Man

We've got some more classics! 
I think instead of building bikes, we need to invest our time into building a time machine.
Unreal.  A custom van and a chopped shovel?  This guy was king!  That bike is totally spot on too.  Stock rake, extended wide glide, and an American Racing mag in the rear.  I'm envious to say the least!

Vintage Frank

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!
It's cool seeing the different front ends.

Wow

An awesome Frank-Pan.  Looks like a long Barney's front end too, damn.

10 Months?

I don't think I can wait that long for Strange Days 2!
Monte's Sportester crew ruled.
This picture just deserves a repost!

Magical times I must say...

Devil MC's

I found this on http://loserrules.blogspot.com/ .  Check out the pair of devil MC Supply lights on the sissy bar!  Very cool, and super rare; I need this one!
That setup looks very similar to the one on the lower left in this original ad; the tail light is above the plate though, and the lights are lower down on the sissy bar.  Could it be the same bike?

Blue Pipes

Kinda cool; this bike has a nice little stance.
