Went down to Asbury Park NJ on Sat to check out the Race of Gentlemen hosted by the Oilers Car Club. It was a great experience watching antique iron throwing rooster tails of sand up and down beach while the surf crashed in on a 70 and sunny day. My personal opinion on what made it such a great time that it was the first for every body there, good ol fashion mayhem and fun. Before the NJ troopers showed there were lines of people from the start gate to half down the beach, most with a beer in hand and of course the smell of dubies in the air. It was such a great laid back time and hopefully they can put it together next year.

So at this past Strange Days, I noticed our buddy Nick from PA put a different seat on his bike. Upon closer inspection, I saw the flame pattern stitching on it, and instantly knew it originally came from a Crazy Frank setup; and I just happened to have the matching passenger pad! He said some old timer he knows had the seat laying around, and thought he might like it. Then Nick being the nice guy he is, said I could have it. I decided to make a trade for it and get him the extended cowbell fork tins he was looking for. The trade was made, and Nick fuckin' hooked it up, thanks again man!
My $5 swap meet seat held on by a bungee cord has seen better days and was due for retirement. It's awesome to finally have the matching seat for my Crazy Frank. I love the cheesey old flame stiching, it goes perfect with the early 80's feel.
Seat and pad reunited...

We're SUPER excited for our buddy CJ, who just picked himself up a '49 Panhead chopper today!
A wideglide front end, 3.5 split tanks, flat fender, and Fubar exhaust; so much potential for this machine. Mr. Carl Flar is really steppin' it up, congrats man! Can't wait to check this project out in person...

Here's two of "The Wing" ones I've been able to collect. The one on the left was never even used. I still need a chrome-backed one...
The ever-elusive "Red Baron" mirror. I've never come across one for sale yet; besides this set on ebay last night. Too bad the auction was ended early for a cool $500!
