A young man sittin' on the witness stand
The man with the book says "Raise your hand"
"Repeat after me, I solemnly swear"
The man looked down at his long hair
And although the young man solemnly swore
Nobody seems to hear anymore
And it didn't really matter if the truth was there
It was the cut of his clothes and the length of his hair
And the lonely voice of youth cries
"What is truth?"

thanks for the photo chris

----- .day trippers. -----

Well we know where were goin
But we dont know where weve been
And we know what were knowin
But we cant say what weve seen
And were not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out

Were on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin that ride to nowhere
Well take that ride

Im feelin okay this mornin
And you know,
Were on the road to paradise
Here we go, here we go

Maybe you wonder where you are
I dont care
Here is where time is on our side
Take you there...take you there

Were on a road to nowhere
Were on a road to nowhere
Were on a road to nowhere

Theres a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And its all right, baby, its all right

And its very far away
But its growing day by day
And its all right, baby, its all right

a boy named........harley.

So here is the story.. This is the bike I got my named from... My father bought a Harley Davidson servi-car trike in 1968 and took about a year or so to build a chopper. Now fast forward to the beginning of 1973, the year I was born. My parents lived in a small apartment and wanted to buy a house before I was born. They had very little money for a down payment and the only thing of real value was my Dad's chopper. So he decided to sell it. Being my family is Italian and most carry the first name Anthony including my Dad, they knew they were not going to name me that. So one day joking around my Mom said to my Dad "Why don't we name him Harley that way you'll always have one". Needless to say that was what they named me...

The first photo is my Dad in 1970 about to take my 2 cousins for a ride...

The trike was a 45 Flathead with a 6 over front end, painted in a heavy purple metal flake. The rear seat was custom made of a glassed over desk chair, chrome reverse wheels and custom clear plexiglass rear fenders.


thanks harley and thanks john.

gonz.. ashby. berk 1998

in the east bay, ashby st in berkeley
is one of those streets you always seem
to get stuck on. there is red light that
is super slow when going up Ashby and trying
to cross telegraph. i would always get stuck
in traffic across from this house(bellow pic)
and would always stare at the ledge going down
the stairs wondering if anyone could ever grind
a little while later in life my friend greg
moved into that house with the guys from -green
day-. One day i was out with m. gonzales and lance
dawes and we were looking for spots to skate. i told
em " i know where with this ledge down these steps are,
but it's kinda death."
mark is the most fearless person i know.and looking
at the ledge he instantly wanted to try it.
the weirdest part of the whole deal was knocking on
the door... and asking greg and the -green day- guys
if mark could skate the front of their house.
of course the answer was yes.
after a few cat like bails down the steps mark
pulled it and made it look to easy. to me the photo
always made it look way easier than the risk of the
