Vashon 2014

I was able to attend Vashon Isle with Flathead Rob for the first time this year. The weather was great and we had a good time. As always we met some really cool new and old friends. The only negative to this show is there is so much cool stuff you find yourself not super impressed at the time by bikes you'd be stoked to see on any normal day.

This MV ruled but my favorite detail was the license plate image resized to fit the Italian plate holder

Ran When Parked

1948 AJS 18CS 500cc single Rigid frame. Had not run since 1972 but did run well. Started 26 Aug 2014 and ran well. $3500. I kinda wish it could follow me home.

Ultimate Triumph Collection

 I've posted photos of Bobby Sullivan's collection before but it's still pretty unbelievable. I really need to pick up a copy of the book. You have to check out these photos if you aren't familiar with the collection.

Ed and Ed

Ed Sr and Ed Jr. at about 3 years old. From Ed Kretz Jr's blog. Some of the content on Ed's blog is just golden. Unfortunately they are both gone now.

Ran When Parked

1946 Indian Chief - I like this one. Minimal chrome and minimal crap. I like the decals rather than tank badges too.
