Concours d'Elegance

Finally got to the Boca Show.
Dave Boyer and Ed, over at the Specialized Motorcycles Museum,
asked Henry and I to lend them a hand this year.
I, of course, said yes!
(but was cursing it at 4:30 that morning!)

Although the weather wasn't hopefull, the turnout was great.
We, of course, know all the judges, but...
...who are all these guys in jacket and ties?

The cream-of-the-crop shows up for this event.
Here are a few.

After we had 2 or 3 looks around the place,
we finally got our passes to the Gourmet d'Elegance.
It is a tented pavilion of many fine food establishments showing off
their best dishes. And they were serving rum.
Henry and I hung out there for most of the afternoon,
watching go by!

There was, of course, a best of show.

 1910 Harley Davidson

Oh yeah, almost forgot,
there were also some cars. (oops)

Till next year!
don't worry, not referring to my next Blog entry

See ya

A Day in the Life

Hello boys and girls!
Appypollylodgies to all of you
who have been wondering what rock
I crawled under.

I have no excuse...

You probably don't notice, but
Mean Machines has been remodeled!
The shop wasn't working out, and, since it's
not time to move to a bigger spot, I rung as much as I could out of what I have!
 Finally got up to Boca Raton
for the Concours d'Elegance this year.
 Awesome show.

Also snuck up to Daytona to see some dirt track racing!
I will, of course, share these with you...soon...I promise!

Brando and I have also stepped up our You-Tube thing. Check it out:
See, I haven't been slackin'!

Check out that rig!

Here are some of the bikes I've been working on:

Brando has also started to throw in a wrench.
It may be ugly now...


Make sure you check out the Cafe Racer TV show
on Discovery HD.
Last night started Rich at Desmo Pro's Ducati,
and Hugh at 6th Street Specials is next up building a Norton.
(They liked him so much, Mike Seate is paying him to build the bike)
(first time for the show)

See ya,
