Threesome


Tom McMullen aboard his Corvair powered trike. This photo was taken on the way home from the trike's second showing in '67 and was just before or right after he was pulled over by the police. It was published in AEE's Chopper catalog in '70. Other shots from this ordeal with the cops were originally published in the July 68 Cycle Guide which featured the trike's first completed photos. Tom contributed features on custom bikes to Cycle Guide before starting Street Chopper in '69.

They are from AEE's 1970 catalog. AEE's catalogs where titled "CHOPPER the custom motorcycle guide". It was a parts catalog that featured articles and bikes that were in previous issues of Street Chopper which was also owned by Tom Mc Mullen.

In case some of you don't know, the Dutch (Larry) is referring to Tom's wife Rose (brunette with boots).
