1915 HD

Looks like this chap has seen some hard miles.

Photo Shoot Revisited

I received a few new photos from Tony today. Awesome job Tony, Rachel and all the rest!

This is my favorite shot so far. Rachel looks stunning and it really accentuates Olivia's gold leaf.

Rachel rocking Flathead Rob's original WWII RAF goggles.

The amount of fingerprints on the gas tank and rear fender after this photo shoot completely cracked me up. Olivia got mauled.

Richy Richards

From Vintage Motorcycle Racing.

The Richy Richards 40 cubic inch Open Wheel Fuel Triumph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.


"Lurkingclass" Pete from the Jockey Journal is selling some insane stuff on eBay right now. His original T100/RR tank is currently sitting at about $1500.

Can't help but make a guy wonder what Jeff Decker's 100RR actually is worth.

Kinda funny, when I met Jeff Decker a couple of years ago he said something like "I don't know much about Triumphs but I do own one." Yep, I'd say he does...

Start 'Em Young

Vaughn told me out of the blue last night he was finally ready to try riding the PW50 without training wheels today after work. Flathead Rob JUST told me he'd do that a couple of days ago. We'll see if he goes for it...

Bud Ekins - Sherman Oaks

I received a pretty cool package from Flathead Rob today. I know the frame is consderably newer than Emma but it still looks pretty good on there. Unfortunately the holes don't line up at all. Let me know if you have any clever mounting ideas.

Barons Bikes

This post is largely for English Stephen. These bikes were all built by Barons in England. I think all of them are stock Triumph rear frame sections.

Damn this bike is cool.


Vaughn asks Joey and I if he can have a Vincent as his first "car."

I LOVED that Mike's Vincent was dirtier than any of the vintage motocross bikes at the show...

GS Update

English Stephen decided the taillight on the GS 400 should be better finished (he was right). He has been working on the piece for a couple of weeks now. Stephen's attention to detail is unparalleled. Awesome.

Believe it or not the GS 400 might actually be finished soon.

I can not wait to see how Stephen's Pre-Unit project develops.
