The Hot Angel - 1958


I'm watching this movie right now on Netflix and would have to say its pretty interesting. There's an Ariel Square 4 and a Pre-unit Swingarm Triumph with Flanders risers. Check the Netflix link a few of posts below if you're interested in watching the film. There's also some decent desert riding footage as well!

Wild Child's Custom Shop




First of all I'd like to apologize to Wild Child's Custom Shop on an earlier post, now corrected, in which I said one of their trikes was built by Ed Roth. My mistake. Wild Child was nice enough to email a couple of pictures over, which I attached above, as well as the front end picture which I found on their Facebook page. Check out Wild Child HERE!

Hot Rod Gang Movie - 1958 - on Netflix (Gene Vincent & a Police Panhead)




If you like old '50s Hot Rod B-Movies you'll be glad to know Netflix now has Hot Rod Gang from 1958 on their instant watch queue. I've only seen this film offered before as a bootleg VHS and in horrible quality but the Netflix version is in very nice shape. The movie features a cool Harley Police Panhead and some great live footage from Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps. The movie also stars John Ashley who's in a few of the other Hot Rod Films as well as Motorcycle Gang (1957) and some of the '60s beach movies, and interestingly enough Ashley's voice was used in the A-Team Television series during the helicopter introduction right before the theme song would play. Here's the Netflix LINK if interested! Enjoy!

ORIGINAL 1955 Johnny Allen Triumph Streamliner World's Record Poster - Johnson Motors











This poster just arrived in the mail today and its absolutely killer and original and measures 22-1/2" x 34-3/4" from some old guy's shop. This streamliner as well as the cooler pre-unit rigid made the cover of the November 1955 issue of Cycle Magazine. Paul of Show & Go did an awesome post on the streamliner and rigid a couple of years ago HERE. Check it out!

Cool Wild Child's Custom Shop Trike




Thanks to Rene of Australia for sending over the great Wild Child LINK from the Jalopy Journal with color and black & white photos of this very cool trike (pages 4 - 7). Enjoy! (Thanks for the clarification as I figured Roth built this machine!)

Wild Knuckle

Check out this crazy machine with the flame cut rear fender. The picture is from a 1963 car show. The knucklehead reminds me of this BIKE!

I just spoke with a guy today who will be selling his original 60's Dave Mann / Ed Roth poster series prints and I will be listing them here on Nostalgia for direct sale. Pricing will range from $75 - $125 and posters will be sold on a first come, first serve basis through the gentleman's email. These originals may have pin holes or small tears but I will give all the condition details. So far I know he has the following prints and should be receiving a list very soon with the contact information:
