The Legend of Joe Alphabet & the Eighth Wonder of the World--the Irridescent!

I believe the second post on Nostalgia was on Joe Alphabet's insane panhead! This article however is a few years earlier, from a late 60s Cycle Guide. Can you imagine this bike tearing down the street with those high rippled smokestack pipes and that in-your-face sissybar? The stance is low and ruling as well on this gem! Paint by Dean Lanza, owner of the Quicksilver (search "Quicksilver" if you are unfamilar with Lanza's mindboggling show machine!)

Alphabet, Allen, Roth, Von Dutch. Watson, Barris, Hines, MC Millen were all the real deal builders from the 1960s
