Here are some great shots originally posted on the Selvedge Yard blog, http://theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com, and in Duke University's photo archive: http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/search/results?t=motorcycle&rows=16. I posted a couple of pictures relating to the ripple piped bike under a post called "Ripple Pipe in 1969" and the dragon-looking bike in the third shot is Mel's Monster and I have a few shots of the whole bike in a posted by that same name! Thanks Mark Anthony for the Selvedge Yard link!

When You Can't Decide - Three Motors in One!
This bike is by no mean the best looking Harley custom out there but give the article a read as its interesting how a pan, knuck, and shovel all came together to create something very unique.

Batgirl's Custom YDS-3 "Catalina" Circa 1967
Yvonne Craig as Batgirl aboard her nicely molded Yamaha from Season Three of the 1960's Batman TV Series! That Rothesque bubble windshield is pretty wild!
An old cartoon Batgirl who appears to be posed to ride cycles.

Pre-unit vs. Pre-unit
Here's a cool picture from 1965 and the caption reads: "David and Goliath all over again - Bob Loux, near side, later pitted his fuel Triumph 40-incher against 80-dual engine Triumph of Dick Rios at AHRA Championships, won wth 144.25, 10.73." The fool took the twin engine contender, nice!
