The Humble Approach

First of all, I'd like to thank Paul of the Show & Go Cycle blog for posting the following great early 1961 custom bike article from the Hot Rod Ideas Magazine: http://showandgo.blogspot.com/2009/08/hot-rod-ideas-part-ii-custom-show-bikes.html (check out the entire article on his site). I was so stoked on it that I picked up a copy and arriving today I read the article and was really impressed with the showmanship of these early customizers. How rad would it be to not even tag your name to the bike in a show because you genuinely wanted people to appreciate the craftsmanship of the build itself without any promotional gimmicks or trophies involved? I can truely say these guys were into custom bikes for all the right reasons!
