Now I just need the 5 Window to go with 'em . . .
Let's see . . . that was 38 years ago - he'd be in his 60s now. Hope he's still doin' it . . . ?
I'm not the only one who knows this place is cool . . . I like to stop on my way to Tortilla Flats and have a cold one on the sofa - and talk to the cats. Johnny Gold will tell you all about mining - the same stories over and over , , , "hey, I already heard that one - tell me a different story." Good to see Jeremiah stops to say hello too . . .
1. Find out the range of motion for your foot rocker
2. Scribe through the top, open hole in the outside of the clutch pedal
onto the friction plate surface.
3. Mill a slot
4. Make a pin and weld it in the hole
5. Cut off the front foot pedal and move it up
6. Cut off the access - smooth out the bottom of pedal
7. Make a steel plate and reinforce backside of
foot peg mount . . . makes it more rigid for fat dudes.
8. Make sure your welder is workin' prior to work
9. Rich has been doin' this for years most likely and
this is nothing new - but, I just figured it out.
I might have my "burn-out" about over and be ready to get back to some 2 wheel action . . . It's been a hell-of-a-slump. The Black Hills Rally is comin' up - so, that usually breaks it up. Davenport Vintage, then the Springfield Mile can cure anything . . .
bicycles. All the hot older chics rode them. You know their folks had money if they had one. I saw this one at Bearded Lady . . . I looked around, but couldn't find the hot one. She's probably old and fat now - didn't recognize her?
As for the show - it's like such a mix of motorcycles, mopeds, choppers . . . and personalities. It was sorta weird. I just didn't catch a good vibe. Lotta standin' around. Greasers, Yuppies and Artsy Farts. Didn't really gel that great . . . I did really like that Norton !
Check this out . . . . found this cool article in Street Chopper 1978. The Nuggets (originally based in Cali) had (sorta still have) a chapter in Iowa. Back in the day, quite an event was held each year at Furnace Creek. Noot worked on many of the Nuggets motorcycles back-in-the-days. Many of the original members of the Iowa chapter still live in the area. Now icons of an era. Critter was a good friend and a Nugget - now gone to the great highway in the sky - miss him and always remember the men who influenced you to be a better person - see the world and have some fun.
