Chromed Triumph Rigid @ the Drags
My memory fails me but I think this picture comes from a 1964 Hot Rod Magazine article on bikes at the dragstrip, and it may have made direct reference to Lions Dragstrip. Anyhow, my friend Mark Anthony sent this one over and thought it was swell enough to post. Put on your sunglasses as all that chrome can be a bit blinding!

Show Stoppers a la 1967
All the above were sent over by Rene from Australia from a 1967 Sport Cycle Magazine. Included are addition pictures of Joe Alphabet's panhead and Dean Lanza's Quicksilver (seen above) that I added to the original posts on each bike. (Rene - Thanks for these great articles as my stash has been dwindling down!)

Gentlemen, Start Your 2009!
Here's an interesting bike with a shovel motor in an early single downtube frame! Have a great 2009 and I also forgot to wish Merry Christmas in 2008! (from an early 70s Choppers Magazine)
