Lots of vendors on sight with their latest products.
Geoff Aaron extreme trials show was awesome.
I know it was two weeks ago but I finally down loaded the pics from my new camera. It took me a while to down load the camera soft wear. Bla bla bla but here it is. Bert Baker spreading the gospel about Harley transmissions. It was very informative. It's amazing how much that guy knows. Years, makes models whatever. Lots of fun for all. A great family event, free hamburgers, hotdogs, sodas, balloons and tattoos for the kiddos.I'm defiantly going back next year.
As a second generation bike builder I caught the bug at an early age. Although my father didn't build bikes for a living, he built many over the years.
After graduating from Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in 1991 I was hired by a custom motorcycle builder, Johnny Pag. While employed at Biker Dream my duties included, engine work, wiring, mock up, and installing lots of chrome and high-end paint jobs. While working with Johnny Pag at Bikers Dream, I helped create bikes for guys like Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top), Terry "Hulk" Hogan, Paul Tracey (Auto Racer), Brian Downing (Angels), Chuck Finley(Angels), Bo Jackson (Raiders/Royals) and Kevin Greene(Rams/Steelers/Panthers). One of which was featured in Hot Bike magazine (Nov. 1997). After Johnny left Bikers dream to start Patriot Mfg. in '00 I went to work for Patrick Racing as a CNC operator for several months while Pag was getting set up. When Pag left to start Pagsta mini Harleys I stayed to help Alex Mardikian (now Von Dutch Kustom Cycles) refine the production process. At Bob Taylor’s motors in Huntington Beach I worked on new Harley's, old Shovels, Pans, Iron Heads, and learned as much about engine building as I could.
