The Muscle Bikes!

Bell R-T Helmets at Factory in 1971

Roth's Choppers Magazine Ad from 1970!

1947 Norton ES-2

I love that Vellocette style muffler with holes drilled at the triangular tip!

The "Face Man" Pan Revisited

I was leafing through a 1970 Road Rider magazine and recognized a familiar face, this crazy molded panhead with face motif on the peanut tank. For anyone who missed the original article post from a late 60's Cycle Guide you can view it HERE!

Howard Gribble - AKA Kid Deuce - Lowrider & Chopper Historian / Photographer!

I think many of us have seen Howard Gribble's historic 1960's Chopper photo set on Flickr but I had no idea who the man was or about his lifelong passion for photography until I read the story on Low Rider Magazine's webpage as posted by Jahluv HERE! From Jahluv's page you can link both to the Flickr photo sets as well as the Low Rider Magazine article. Enjoy!

Gary Littlejohn Paint

Here's a great shot of Gary Littlejohn's panhead (1st version) showing the cobbwebbed paint job on the frame/tank with the nicely dished and molded mustang tank with lacing and other cool techniques thrown in (from Kid Deuce's photos).

1974 Marvel / Ideal Evel Knievel Comic Book

Gary Littlejohn BMXers!

Here's a nice Littlejohn BMXer as posted on the BMXMuseum site and man is it a beauty!

I saw this 26" frame up for sale on Ebay with similar scheme to the complete bike above.

Gary Littlejohn 26" Fireroader BMX Bike

This bike is super cool with the 26" wheels, motocross bars, and the girder styled forks. I think it would make for the ultimate everyday cruiser!

Bell R-T BMX Special Helmet

I can't say I've ever seen one of these Bell BMX helmets before but I'm guessing they would be highly sought after with the variation color and decals!

1977 Bates Sweaters as Advertised in BMX Action!

(EPE/Rich-Mart/Randy) Elvis Presley Jacket & Sneakers - 1956

Though not motorcycle related this Elvis Jacket and pair of sneakers caught my eye as they're up on private auction with $6,000 and $2,500 minimum opening bids. I'm guessing Elvis was riding the Harley K-Model around 1956 and fans might have been wearing these articles during that time!

1960's Rat Fink Monster Coloring Book!

This guy on Ebay really did a nifty job showcasing his old Rat Fink coloring book with the video complete with original Surf Fink tune!

Moon Equipped Cuff Links - 70's - 80's

These aren't anything spectacular but I picked them up at an estate sale on Friday after work from an old jewelery box. I'm unsure of the vintage but am guessing probably 1970's or 1980's but if they were any earlier that would be rad. Something to wear with the ruffled tuxedo I guess!
