Hotwheels chopper and rider

Jim and Ron Pomeroy print from my files

Ron Pomeroy gave me this print when I was at his place one day. That's Jim out front and Ron right behind him.  Ron was a pretty fast racer himself, finishing 7th at the 1974 Daytona Supercross.  "He Aint heavy" is Ron's reference to the song  "He ain't heavy, he's my brother."

Retro Riders group ride July 2020

First post Covid group ride tonight.  Very good social distancing.

Elsinore Grand Prix Programs from the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Annual GPs

Pulled these from my files.  These are from the 1969, 1970, and 1972 GPs.  Still some of the best racing I've ever seen.  Nothing like big fourstroke twins with knobbies on asphalt.

Leaver-right motorized bike -- found it by the curb on refuse pick-up day

Found this piece of leaver-right in the street on refuse pick-up day.  Not sure what the future holds, but at least it's not in the landfill.

Incredible workmanship (that's sarcasm) running the throttle cable through the frame.

Maybe the world's ugliest motorcycle grip.
