LBSM 5/24/09

Usually the meet is smaller when it's on Memorial Day weekend. As a matter of fact, I thought about not going because of it. Well, not this year. Is it the economy? Were more folks staying in town looking for some cheap entertainment?

This simple form of a chop has made a big come back


My brother's favorite of the day


At LB you can count on seeing a few older bikes


This '29 J model was ridden in too.


This character insisted on posing with this tight shovel, not his. By the looks of the fender, those shocks can't have any travel.


Movie Land Wax museum Dragon Bike replica


While not a perfect replica, it's still very nice.


Nice set up but, I'm getting real tired of bare/unfinished looking bikes. To be fair, maybe it's not done. Primer's OK. You don't need perfect paint or chrome, just no bare metal.


This 47 knuckle's been showing up off and on for probably the last 10 years.


Like it or not, there's always something different rolling in.


A blending of new and old. Evo's are still new to me.


Color coordinated


Here's an interesting bike.


I'll bet it fools a lot of people. The little peeps standing on the backseat didn't like their picture taken.


I don't usually shoot the newer machines but, this one caught my lens. Interesting color.

While not my style, it's fun to look at


Narrow bars and


... knotty pipes


Fixing a cracked pipe mount with tie-wraps.

Lately, I've been just shooting bikes of interest. Maybe next time I'll shoot a few of the seller's spaces plus some that relay the feel and scope of this event.

it was a killer meet for sure, weather was perfect, great mix of parts, bikes, and a cool chat with Big Scott on the 'old days' bike mods. i agree, pics of the sellers will blow some minds considering this goes on every month...nice work my brother.

The bare metal bike belongs to Sinner Will. He asked me not to shoot it that day when I was bussy taking pix of Big Scott's new Dragon Bike because it wasnt finished yet. Its almost finished now. Should make its nice finish debut by the end of the month. The idea was to have it ready for the fourth of July Shindig.
