Tank Tuesday!

 This time one from my own stash, a heavily molded triumph tank signed by Yosemite Sam! It hasn't been confirmed but its gotta be by Yosemite Sam Radoff, who laid on some of the wildest paintjobs in the 70s.

Unfortunatly it is in pretty rough shape, chuck of paint can chip off pretty easy. But check out those beautiful colors and layout!

Green/ blueish on the left and more red hues on the right

Puff puff pass!

Signature of the master!

Great raised edges and everything! This Triumph sure had have been a sight

Sam's company truck! How's that for advertising

And you've probably seen these pics before, and you can see the resemblence of the paintwork on my Triumph tank

What a killer bike!

My funny chopper!

Hi guys! It's been in some pics already, but let me properly introduce my little CB 750 funny chopper!

Born in 1972 it was built in the mid 70s and nothing really changed since!

Hinged Drag Specialties seat with  hidden storage underneath, fully lockable ofcourse. Nope, it's not the most baddass looking bike but its all about practicality!

Pointy stuff everywhere. And the smaller ones weren't catalog parts either, they were made on the lathe and chromed

Made in Holland, ride in Holland!

You might wonder why I like this so much, but every time my Harley didn't start or whatever, this has been standing there ready to go every time! And everything on it works, from blinkers to the horn... but that's Honda in a nutshell
And as an added bonus, this is the only bike cops can't hassle me for nothing! Just worry free motoring

Its the special paint that makes me happy too!

... and this makes me happy too! a gauge that says happy, how genius
(nevermind the oil pressure, don't think its correct)
I even found a fairing in almost identical paintjob! but no worries, it's not going on it

Pigpens chopper

 back in 2010 I've posted this pic of Pigpen, asking for more pics and never found more...
and now, while checking out the Rogues blog... Presto!

badass well ridden pan chopper, with a very unique look to it.

Here it looks much fresher, so it must be an earlier pic.
Thanks for posting Beer!!!

Pretty rare bike nowadays, but the Ariel has been chopped quite a bit back in the day
