I teach a Photoshop course at a local college. The college recently had their annual student photo exhibit. This photo caught my eye. The artist wasn’t a student of mine but if she was, it would have been an easy “A”.
Vintage Motorcycle Race weekend and Swap meet. April 23rd, 2011.
Great place to score some cheap projects or bikes in need or a re-birth. It was hard to not bring home a $75 complete rust bucket… or the $500 honda…
Also a great place for some inspiration. British, Japanese, Italian, German, Spanish… they had it all.
More photos to come……..
Heading out to Mark’s garage in the Palm Desert is like going to a giant candy store. SOooo many bikes…
He has a crazy palette jack that lowers the bikes from the racks. He brought down BMW #2. She looks fully complete. Bummer about the dent in the tank. And bummer, no title.
My buddy Matt Grayson secured a van for us to transport this bike back home. He had his eye on the Honda CL200 (as did I). He ended up taking it home for a mere $350. If he didn’t buy it i was going to.
And out of all the bikes out there, i couldn’t get my eyes off of this rinky dink Harley Davidson. I had to have it just because it is the complete Anti-Harley. I can’t wait to get it cleaned up and running then to pull up to a Harley gang at a stop light and see the look on their faces.
I see myself headed back there for another bike… eventually. There are sooo many gems sitting there that i want to get running and ride. Hopefully i can find a home for one of the Triumphs…
