Race Rigid

It's a common misconception that custom rigid Triumph's are just for show and can't/don't really get ridden. I ride the crap outta mine. This TFMW photo of customer Nic Bailey suggests I'm not the only one.

Weird Harold's

More from Weird Harold's. Weird Harold's was a mainly off road / race bike shop. They sold Bultaco, Ossa, Hodaka, Montesa and Husqvarna. The was a shop located on Wyoming just south of Lomas next to the original Holman's location and across from the National Guard armory. He is retired now but is still active with dirt bikes.

Idle Hands - Whitworth Edition

Most folks are familiar with Gary Griffin's iconic "Idle Hands" Knucklehead photo of Atomic Trent.

Here's the all English "Whitworth" edition. Crazy how small the Triumph mill looks by comparison.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the tattooed version shows up at a Auto Jumble across the pond.

Chabott Engineering Van

I recently stumbled across this photo of Shinya Kimura's van. Kinda cool that he's rockin' GeekBobber & Seattle Cossack's stickers. I think I sent him a handful of stickers and wished him luck when I heard he had committed to running the 2014 Cannonball.

 When we met Shinya for the Cannonball in 2010 in Albuquerque he was doing a bottom end rebuild on 1915 Indian in the hotel parking lot. Pretty hardcore. He seemed like a nice guy too. I doubt if that would be the case for me if I were rebuilding my bike in a hotel parking lot...

Thanks to the Rally Car 114 guys for letting Vaughn and I check out their car. It didn't make Vaughn want a race car any less...

Charlie's Acres Swap Meet

Atomic Trent mentioned this one to me recently. 5 hours is a pretty long haul. Word is it's a pretty solid meet though.

Twinline Gold Mine Swap Meet
