..finding these.

thanks chico...,, max

chico said-
i recently recieved these fiberglass tins from an old biker that lives across the street from me.
they were painted around 1968-69.
the bike they were on was a 1951 panhead that was bought from NY and shipped to WA.
the bike was parted out for "unknown" reasons and the tins have been stored in the rafters in the old mans shop since 69 or 70.

i find myself at his place every second of free time i have.
he is so damn knowledgable it's crazy.

matt from Australia

of his panhead.
super cool.
thanks matt

-- tanks a lot--

just finished these up.
thanks to my friend derik for
letting me use his booth at night,
(the fridge at his shop is the ultimate.. tecate,
string cheese, cokes, and a mass of salami)

the flame light blue tank on the far left of the table
was painted in the 60' was falling apart and i just
cleared and sanded it a thousand times. it really is an amazing tank,
filled with tons of blems, repairs, and fuck-ups but filled with soul.
gonna hate to see em all go.

--hodaka tanks--

a few years ago i used one of these on
the bike i built for scott. i wanted to use something
different, something with a little more shape.
they're kinda pigs when you get em.... a little too bulky
and tall in the back. narrowed it and shortened the back and moved
the gas cap up. they got those cool white plastic caps.

sportsters and loafers

this is good to look at.
the general crotch area
will give you a hard off.

feel refreshed.

other on the t.v. and their in spandex.
that must be weird.... and i know they
would just whoop my ass.
I've always understood boxing.. i mean it makes

whoa -full frontal- dec. altamont 1969

i drive by altamont fairly often.
it is pretty strange to think about the mass of
people that poured onto that property.
a wild cocktail of freaks, hippies, bikers,
dead heads, artists, squares, and probably some

never seen this shoot of ned the nudist
front and center. i hate being naked.

summer tour 1969

the matching shorts.
the shoes. the socks.
the wrist watches.
not sure if i'm the chubby one or the
skinny one. maybe just the bus driver in
the background.

think you're crazy??

In Perú from Huánuco to Tingo Maria, where the road from the Pacific coast across the Andes finds its way towards the Amazon lowlands. This is near the top of the last mountain pass. From there, soapbox rider can enjoy a vertical 1000 meters of gravity assisted ride.

Since these kids help stranded truck drivers along the road, they're called bomberos (firemen). They transport drinks, food and spare parts to broken trucks.

Thanks to ZU from Perú for additional info:

"I usually use that highway go to work. I saw a lot of those cases of children with their skateboard or a board with wheels (artesanal) (those wheels are metallic and they tolerate the speed) they have had many fatal accidents and some times they do it for work like "fireman", I work for this highway 4 years, most of them are poor children that don't have money neither for the bus ticket, to move from a place to another in long distances and some for "enjoy"."
