More Fresno's Finest '73


Most have shied away from extreme forks but you got to admit, this thing is cool. The article states that this type of bike was already becoming a minority in Fresno as the trend was moving towards tight bikes. For the record, '37 Indian forks 28" over.


The trend may have been moving towards tight but they featured several long bikes. This one has an elegance to it.


It's the '70s so it's a Tank Top, not Wife Beater.

Always liked the look of those long bikes- long forks and tall sissy bars!
