Suitcase Vault

In this suitcase I do find some treasures as it was filled with lots of old mags. looking thru a few I found an old magazine by hotbike which showcased streetchopper from 69' to 84'. While looking thru I found this gem of a cover shot. You see I'm 98% positive that was shot in Hemet at the local Taco shop which I can remember being a Naugles (think I spelled it right...) back in the day. The place is still there and most fondly remembered as Ramiro's which was favorite taco shop for the town, so busy they had to stay open 24 hours to even service Hemet's local after hour bicycle riding, teeth missing, spun units. back to the subject of Hondas's this is a nice one too.

Rear View

If while riding you look back and see this, you should know that you might be in for a run......I think the beer gut adds to the balance. Only in California!!!

Some that have caught my eye lately...really like the crossed exhaust. hmmm...tall & long.....

bad azz boat action

As always I was looking around the web and found this. earthrace boat which is incredible, $500,000 or more carbon fiber and capable of submarining thru waves.hard to believe a crew of four stays on the boat. it has now been painted black and will be used to hunt whalers and other offenders of the ocean.

4 wheel delights

Its always hard when close family passes...then there sometimes is the rewarding side where you are bestowed with something you truly treasure whose worth is only in the eyes of those who know its history and respect the hands laid upon it and the jobs it help to complete by just keepin' going on.after bugging, hinting, a searching out on many occasions I shall inherit this truck which right now represents my family many of which have passed and what has shaped the way I work thru each day. Thank you to those that watch over me for without them I would not be here now. A unique, eccentric, timeless example of california history.

Piston Honda

Like a sumo wrestler on the search for sushi and steak I keep digging up treasures off this glorified television with typewriter styled remote control. only because tv is lame and cable worse. where else but in the good ol' U.S. would the basic package be over 250 channels of crap. I miss the days of 2,4,5,7,9,11,13 and some weird vhf snow bound junk. kids these days don't know how to deal with you get what you get and don't bitch.thats why I keep mine chained in the cellar!!!!!! just throw them some wrenches, miscellaneous engine parts, and a couple of cases of pixy sticks and see what happens. Yes, on this day I once again envy those fortunate to experience the mooneyes show in JAPAN. soon I will visit the land of the rising sun..

Training Wheels

After looking under rocks and behind shacks, sheds, and various "mobile" homes I have found something to pop my cherry for the winter. worked out a deal with the hollywood hippy killer for a cb750 project. strated the arduous task of refining what I want to do before even getting started, been assaulting the web for shots of 750 builds. even came across the shot of hippy killer kutty's old cycle which left me fond of old memories of trips to paso robles with the bike and matching chopped old ford. The loss of another close family member this week has left me a little bitter at the person manning the controls but, life keeps going!!! looking forward to posting some progress pics soon, first gotta get it in my GARAGE!!!
