The Motorcycle Boy

I was just watching Rumble Fish again and man is it a great movie. Everything about Mickey Rourke's character "the Motorcycle Boy" just screams cool and he reminds me of Mike Conley (RIP) as well. Graffiti on the tunnel wall reads "The Motorcycle Boy Reigns." Lobby cards are from an Ebay auction.

Panhead in the Background?

I'm guessing the bike in the right corner is a pan but it could be a shovel or knuckle too? Whatever it is its a pretty nifty custom! Picture comes from a late 60s men's magazine.

Wild Stretched Honda 337cc Drag Bike

This little 1/4 mile machine is pretty cool as featured in a 1968 Cycle Guide Magazine!

VL Forks & Ride Control

Here are a couple of cool ads from the Easyriders Earlyriders magazine on the VL front end and ride control accessory!

Vintage 80s Jammer Cycle Products T-shirt

I'm a nut when it comes to old t-shirts, especially of the custom motorcycle genre (type "Durfee" in the search box to see an early 1970s one), so when I stumpled upon this Jammer Cycle Products t-shirt yesterday I had to buy it. Its up on Ebay if anyone is interested as I'm way to skinny to run a muscle tee.

Knucklehead Perfection!!!

How awesome is this Knuckhead Rene of Australia sent over? This beauty graced the pages of a 1968 Cycle Guide and has to be on my personal top ten knuckles of all time list! Thank you Rene as this Cycle's a beauty with its pre-unit front end, sky high pipes, rippled, and trumpeted, super low stance, and exquisite molding. All I can say is WOW!!!!

Anyhow, I was amazed how many vintage photos they have posted on the website, so by all means check out the following link:
