Topics I've Started
Posted 20 May 2013Ok, I looked around, so far did not see the specifics on this. Route66 asked me, (this will be my first, so I don't know) and I bet there are others who are wondering too. Where are we meeting, what is the address? What time is the meeting, and what time does the ride start? Anything we should look out for? Is local PD cool with us?
What is the course we are taking too?...... Any info would be helpful. I will be with Pat, and I am sure he knows everything, but I cant get him on the phone right now, so I thought I'd just ask.. Thank you, and see you there boyyyyyyyy!!!
Posted 19 May 2013No kidding,
My vintage parts guy gives me a small box at a time, from his endless pile of vintage stuff..Stuff for my store.. Today, I am going thru a box of parts, I see this on its side.
I pick it up, and got a cold, dead feeling in my gut, yet I couldn't put it down. I was then trying to imagine how high the jump was, that snapped this poor head clean off. And it is broken, it is not cut... This bike took a beating....
Can we have a moment of silence please....Poor A&A.
Posted 12 May 2013Hi peeps, been trying to post this since yesterday..... I went, arrived a bit late, got shoved into the corner, which turned out to be the best spot in the show, under the shade tree. Got stuck next to this jerk, with a bunch of original finish bikes... ( totally kidding, it was Larock! ) Pat showed up late, Dan made a brief appearance, with that MOTOPRO in hand. Darren Chen was there, and a bunch of the regulars from my side of the planet. Good turn out, and I took some photos, for your viewing pleasures.... First up, Joe, and Kenny, who where 2 of the 3 who put on the show. Both of them are oldschool racers with heavy roots in BMX history...Keyy is sitting down interviewing one of the racers, which is going into a movie about NORCAL race history....
Posted 6 May 2013Ok
Since we got the off topic forum, which I was recently introduced to, thought it may be fun to share my other love, of building Muscle. Musclecars, that is. I know personally, my 20 plus years of car building led me to the level of bike building I now enjoy.
When it comes to old cars, there is not anything, as bad ass as a big block, lowered, maxed out muscle car. I aquired this 1971 Challenger back in 1987, and it was my daily driver for 12 years, then around 2000 it started to transform into a showcar, as it it now. My car has almost 500,000 miles on the chasis. But, I have replaced every part at least one time, with the exception of the sideglass windows..Its on its 2nd engine, 2nd rear end, and many parts have come and gone.
But bassically a 1971 Challenger base model. Converted into a 383 Magnum clone R/T.
383 C.I. BORED .30 OVER, Keith Black pistons, Edelbrock performer manifold, Holley 750cfm dual feed single pump carb, Mopar performance Electronic conversion distributor with orange ignition box, 8mm wires, dual timing chain and windage tray, Magnum cast iron exhaust manifolds, blowing thru Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers. Trans is your basic a727 torqueflite with a shift kit. And external trans cooler. Out back is a 8 3/4 mopar rear end with 3.73 suregrip diff. Polished 15 inch Centerline Drag stars keep it looking old school. When we painted it, I chose a 1970 white tail stripe, and matched the hood scoops to that strip. Anyways, I'd love to see the cars from you guys...
Posted 3 May 2013I saw Cward put this in the shoutbox. And so, I Thought it needed a little more info, as I know alot of guys in here who like Slayer, as I do...He was young...
Grammy-winning guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a founding member of the heavy metal band Slayer, died Thursday of liver failure in Southern California, the band said in a statement.
He was 49.
"Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11 a.m. this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure," the band said in a statement posted on its website and Facebook page.
Hanneman leaves behind his wife, Kathy, a sister and two brothers.
"He ... will be sorely missed," the band said.
