Fall Art Show @ Eden Salon

Hand screened poster for the Salon art event by the Harpoon.

Jenny's a very talented artist and recent graduate of Cal State Fullerton, where I went. "The Gentleman Beast!" Too funny!

"Spider Girl" was one cool painting in this circus sideshow display!

The "Nothing Machine" by Rodney with fabrication help by Chris and Jeff. This contraption was insane with motorcycle primary chains, gears, bicycle parts, and various metal shapes working to drive a typewriter to type the word "nothing" over and over on a spool of paper.

Another angle of the machine and its intricate design. All proceeds from the picture sales from this event and the upcoming Cycle World tour will go a Children's Brain Tumor Foundation to help make a difference in sick childrens' lives! Indeed a very worth cause!

Nice Pop Art piece of Clint Eastwood from "A Fistful of Dollars" as done by the Harpoon and as purchased by Lucky!

I at first thought this was Harpoon's panhead but it turns out its a screening of Gary Littlejohn's panhead, the second version. I like the colors too as they remind me of X-ray Spex's "Germ Free Adolescence" album cover. Nice!

Harpoon's panhead was there and looking good too! If you get the chance to see this bike in person check out the tank as the molding job is phenominal! Grant did some very swell work fabricating those angled shotgun pipes as well! One very nice machine!

Al Tronar de las Motas

I know a lobby card of this same image was posted earlier but I think this one is much clearer. Harley drag bike heading down the line. Everyone probably already knows this but I heard the metal disk was run on only one side of the front wheel to trip the sensors/click-down-lights on the starting line. (original photo from Ebay)

Wild Pre-unit!

This triumph is pretty wild with what appears to be a mold pipe shape on the tank, unique half-moon seat, and minature fish tail tips. It kind of reminds me of the "Enchanted Parrot" posted earlier, though that bike was a swingarm. (1968 Cycle Guide)

Show Bonneville

Its too bad the picture isn't any clear but this Pre-unit Bonne in an original rigid frame looks the part. Those pipes are super long. Notice the peanut tank off to the side. (1968 Cycle Guide)

The "Face Man"

Talk about a crazy mold job! I only wish we had a color photo! This tank is a work of art! What a Face? That front end set-up is king as well!(article from a 1968 Cycle Guide!)
