Top n' Tails

TOP

Class act. It's amazing what a set of handlebars can do. That, and the small headlight starts to move it from a bob to a chop. I found this image long before all these blogs got started. Where?, I don't know.

TAILS

This should have made the Dresser post. There's a lot going on here. Lights are one thing but, when guys start adding those chrome balls everywhere? They must weigh at least a pound each. Who cares when your dragging a 200 lb. bumper? Ahhh, the good old days, when you could put a bike in the trunk. Don't remember where I grabbed this beauty.

Chris, tops and tails...excellent! The details of the bike on top...ah I wish I could make out more. The septa coloration of the photo make it that much more desirable,especially knowing it's real and not done with digital imagery. Happy to see more like this...

The Tails portion, man I remember seeing stuff like this around the mid-to late '70s on up to the mid '80's. Of course the is no accounting for the taste of others, but it is a taste of history, of what some people thought of as art back in the time...LOL
Memories, I'm glad they are only memories (the tails)! I surely wouldn't mind seeing the old pans and knucks come back...oil grime and all. I guess that's part of their attraction for me...

Chessie, sorry to burst your bubble but,.... I added the sepia tone.

This is MC Art so, If I'm going to post a photo that readers may have seen on another blog, then I need to add something to it for more flavor. Things like enhancing scale, color, lighting, detail, etc.
