"A Quest to Building a Dream Bike" - H.K.G's Photo Documentary on Mark Drews' "Solitary Confinement"
Half Moon Garage has an outstanding new post with several photos of Mark Drews' triumph show bike during the final stages of the build. These are unlike any of the other photos out there of the bike as they really show the steps Mark took to craft this masterpiece and the TLC involved with the entire process!

While riding the old '67 Schwinn last Saturday evening with Jackie on a dimly lit street my front wheel and fork became entangled with a downed tree branch and this was the unfortunate result!
Temporary fix using a pair of '70 Schwinn Super Sport road bike forks and the original '67 Schwinn S-6 front wheel! The only bummer about the road bike forks is they have a wierd deraked stance but I didn't want to spend any money and had these parts in storage. Now its back on the road again!

The Word on the Street About Mark Drews' "Solitary Confinement" Pre-unit
Below is a list of quick links to all the posts, comments, photos, and words on the street I've found about Mark Drews' newest creation, the "Solitary Confinement" Pre-unit Triumph Show Bike. I will continue to add to this list as new information becomes available. (Note: The fantastic shot above comes from Half Moon Garage's page and I believe it is the best photo to date which captures the bike's perfect stance!)

SOLD - 1960s Bates Easy Rider Type Cafe Leather Jacket - 44M
I have my 1960s Bates Cafe Racer leather jacket with Easy Rider styling up for sale to help pay some bills. This 44M jacket has a nice teal leather chest with rare white sleeves and racing stripe accented with red leather and killer red and aqua alternating stripes on the sleeves. Main zipper is a conmar as well as the slash pocket zippers and the lower hand pocket zippers. It is rare on a 60s Bates jacket to find both slash pocket zippers and lower zipper pockets as the lower pockets were an added option. All zippers work perfectly but one of the lower front zipper pockets is missing the conmar pull. Sleeve zippers are Talons and work great. Golden stain lining is in perfect condtion and Bates racing flag tag is in awesome shape, reading 44M. Measurements are: 22" from armpit to armpit, 18.5" from shoulder to shoulder, 24.5" from shoulder to sleeve cuff, and 28" from back of collar to waist hem. Overall jacket condition would be an 8 / 10. Leather is in great shape throughout and could use a little bit of leather cream. A bit of the teal leather coloring has transfered onto the white at the armpit area. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the jacket at email@example.com.

Street Low Magazine - Issue 59 (La Mission's '42 Chevy Fleetline)
I picked up a copy of Street Low Magazine on Saturday as it has a pretty cool five page photo spread/feature article on the 1942 Chevy Fleetline that was used in the movie, "La Mission," as well as a 41' Chevy Coupe that was also in the film.

Mooneyes 2010 X-mas Show Teaser w/ Mark Drews' "Solitary Confinement" Pre-unit Show Bike!
Drews' above (picture from FMA) vs. Vern's below (circa 1968!) Both are truly amazing machines!
Mark Drews' pre-unit can be seen from 1:51-2:10 on the video. What an awesome bike featuring mini HD peashooter forks, micro spool hub, bicycle type rim and tire, teeny hand carved plastic/Lucite scooped faux tank cover with inner steel tank receptacle, dual 389/689 Amal Carbs, hand-made micro flask oil bag with orig. pre-unit fittings adapted, mini pleated seat, scooped wassell ribbed fender with expanded metal shields, and hand carved inner & outer Lucite primary cover and motor mounts to name a handful of things. Also, the simple colors, chrome, black, and clear flow nicely together; less is more! In my opinion, this skinny machine has "sweepstakes winner" written all over it and it both beats and surpasses any of the late 50's/early 60's pre-unit show bikes, including Larry Howard's Glittercycle. Also, you must check the "Manic Monday" post on FMA's Site (1st post) for Drews' "Solitary Confinement" Pre-unit photos and FMA's 2nd post (also DBCUSTOMLEATHER!, Crusin' Mag, Cycle Zombies, Born Loser, and DiCE)
