Oink! Oink!

Keith Silcox scanned and kindly sent me the entire contents of Ed Roth's California Choppers! Up to now, I'd never seen the contents of this magazine. Being a fan of Roth's Oink, I was especially pleased to see these two early photos.
This is the first swinging fender/sissy bar combo I can think of.
An Ankh for Oink. This sissy bar was later replaced by a shorter iron cross topped one. The bike was a ridden work in progress. At this point it still featured fat bob tanks plus retained the stock handlebars, forks, headlight nacelle, and front fender. All of which are barely visible.

This Season's Header, Summer!

Time to Ride!
Speaking of time, Lately I haven't had the time to create a new header every month, so This Month's Header will have to be This Season's Header for now.

Doc Holliday Again

I've already posted this photo of Doc Holliday in front of Dick Allen's house, but then Joe Hurst sent me this bigger and better one... this one
From the looks of it, I believe it's Doc's Witch bike restyled in 1973.
