Folk shaman. Opening act at Woodstock. Vicious open chord guitar player. He didn't smash his guitars. He wore those motherfuckers out. Not to mention, "Freedom," the song he's most known for, he pretty much made up on the spot at Woodstock. BMF.
El Sensei Big Broski made himself a trip down to Wheels Through Time in North Carolina with Mrs. Big Broski. He said the owners and people working there were the nicest. Ask and they'd start up any bike they had in the museum. Unfortunately, Bro's digital camera took a shit so he had to use a disposable. I'm sure all the bikes look like a bunch of junk to the average person, but to the initiated it's nothing but gold. The place has a pretty extensive website too. www.wheelsthroughtime.com Check em out.
Finally blocked off some time in my busy schedule (CEO shit, hostile takeovers, shit like that) to work on this bitch. Massaged the kickstand so it fucking fits right, threw on the pipes and a Haifley seat, dug an old Joe Hunt and one of my thousands of MPD primary covers out of my storage space.
Sure, all this only took about five minutes, but I'm a fucking busy man. What do you want from me? More shit to come.
Motor in (rocker boxes on backward, of course. I was hung over something fierce and it was hot as a motherfucker, at least for Oregon.) The 4-over hardtail on my 67 has always seemed a tad too short to me. Conversely, I've been worried the 6-over hardtail on this bike might look too long with the motor in. No worries. My 6'3" 250 lb. ass still makes it look tiny. Discontinued 7metalwest oil tank acquired from one of the brethren. LePera seat was in the shed so I put it on there for no real reason. Haifley bates seat is waiting in the wings.
The homie and Cali correspondent Jahluv aka MJ from LA sent this:
"Figured I'd share this with somebody who would dig this... I found some disposable 35mm cameras in the closet with god knows what on them. Got the film developed yesterday and behold - snaps from Born Free numero uno were on one of the cameras. There were a couple of photos with my son at West Coast Choppers - we were regulars at JJ's Cisco Burger while it was up and running." WCC 4Q Polgreen 4 Aces Wes White Classic Cycles? Nashville's old Triumph Yardman's Pan 4Q again.
You see so many digital, crystal clear images nowadays that it's nice to see some real photos shot on film. Thanks, homie.
