    That 37 is sick!

     

    Ya, I’ve been tinkering a little bit. Going to get the wheels off today. I got some new tires a couple years ago for Christmas that I need to mount on there. Going to mount the seat on better too. I also need to figure out a magneto setup. I don’t want to run a battery. And I need to figure out the front end. The forks that came with it were all bound up, so I bought another set that I thought would work, but the triple trees almost seem to be the wrong size. They won’t tighten down on the frame very well… I don’t know, just going to keep tinkering. See what happens.

    Just keep is ratty like it is. Supposedly the guys I got it from got it out of an old mans garage in Huntington Beach. It had been sitting since the 70’s. I just mounted the new tires. Waiting on a couple parts so I can try too start it. See if the motor is still ok. If not I’ll tear into the motor and rebuild it. The guys who I got it from got it started, but didnt tear into anything else…. Ill just make it safe and rock it.

    Good eye Ben… 46 Indian in front. 1200 Sportster in the middle(THIS THING RIPS. SO FAST IT’S SCARY). I love the Japanese cherry blossom paint job. Then the 48 panhead in the back. That was built by Max Schaff in Oakland. Better photo of the panhead below.

    Sweet bikes Cole. Love to take that sporty for a rip.

    If you ever need a bobber built for a big tall person such as yourself, check out my Yamaha on this post. Been trying to sell, as I don’t have the back for a hard tail anymore. 🙁

    Very cool bike Ben..   I like it lots!!

    I have seen sooooo many motorcycles on the coast..  The hwy 1 is loaded with them!!!  I think a sport bike would be the most fun.. Maybe a hyabusa so you could go fast and carry some luggage… 8-). The ol KCW Chopper would look sick as fuck cruising down the 1…8-).

    I want to ride my motorcycle more this year..  I generally have more fun riding with someone else.. Need to find someone to ride with…  Maybe I need a better riding bike too… nahhhhhhhh. 😎

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I’m just so so with most things, but that bike is some of my best work.

    You’re to scrawny for that BMW beast Willy. Get yourself a scooter. Chicks dig Scooters!

    If you’re buying the Beemer for looks, go for it; function(pavement/dirt), not so much. For less money you could get a fully street legal range of dual sport from KTM. They’re made near Germany and they Speak German.

    Looks like a few cool bikes were there. What’s the story on that stubby triumph? Trials?

    Always have liked the frame and forks on the old Zundapp ks500. That’s a nice looking rig.

    Yep, trials. 200cc single.

    There was some nice stuff. Not as much as Tucson has to offer, but was still a good show.
