Grease Ball

Always the consummate professional, Pacific Northwest Museum of Motorcycling historian Tom Samuelsen found the true "Grease Ball" lineage. He's amazing.

The Grease Ball is one of the best events of the summer. In addition to a top-notch car and motorcycle show at a fabulous venue (the best French fries in Washington) the Seattle Cossacks will be performing and both the Pacific Northwest Museum of Motorcycling and the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts (VME) will be represented. Be there and bring a cool car or bike!

Event information and registration is available on the Slim's Last Chance website .

Davis Pre-Unit

Every so often one of Mike Davis' Pre-Unit Triumphs resurfaces. Still pretty timeless in my opinion.

Don Feaster - Daytona 1953

Thanks to Larry Feaster for sharing this photo of his father Don. 

Don Feaster traveled with Red Farwell for the fatefully tragic 1953 Daytona race. Don was fresh back from his stint in Korea. Don rode the same factory Norton that Red Farwell rallied to a 2nd place finish in the previous year's 1952 race. 

This photo taken before the race is such a timeless portrayal of a racer's swagger and playfulness. What an incredible shot. It's just heartbreaking the day didn't finish in the same fashion.
