Yep....The lunch boxes and thermos's brings back memories for sure. A small chuckle on thermos's below. paps

A young man starts work at the local adult toy store. The owner says he has to go and tells the young man, if you can't find a price on something make one up.

A white chick comes in and asks "how much for the white dildo?" he says "10 bucks" and she takes it.

A black chick comes in and asks " how much for the black dildo?" he says "20 bucks" and she takes it.

A biker chick comes in and asks "how much for the plaid dildo?" he says "30 bucks" and she takes it.

The boss comes back and asks what happened while he was out and the young man replies, "I sold a white dildo to a white chick for $10, a black dildo to a black chick for $20 and a biker chick bought my thermos for $30.

Maybe if it was mounted on a bracket instead of hanging off the springer by a piece of wire it would look better. :D PS I am looking for a correct 1948 headlamp bracket. The bracket I need does NOT have the two small holes in the face like the one below.

Here's some pics I got today of George Bartle who was the service manager for Dot and Earl Robinson. I was told he used to travel the circuit with Bart Markle and raced a BSA Gold Star single and later Harley KR's. I was going to print these on some fine German photographic paper and then thought.......Nah!

Dave,
Buddy Elmore won on a Triumph. It was a big deal, beating all the H-D boys. The next year Triumph released the Daytona model commemorating it. In '67 Gary Nixon won again for Triumph and Buddy was second. That pissed H-d off so they came back hard the next year.

Thanks to all of you who have been posting the excellent pictures of your stuff. I didn't discover this thread until recently. Reviewing it and checking out all the cool stuff y'all have taken the time to share has really warmed up these cold Ohio days.

I don't have much to show off by comparison, but wouldn't mind posting a pic or two. Unfortunatley, I'm at the kindergarten level when it comes to computers. I finally figured out how to down-load a picure from my digital camera into a folder. I tried 'copy' and 'paste' method with no results. I went to the FAQ section of this forum...felt like a chimp trying to read Latin.

If one of you tech-savvy motorcycle hooligans could take the time to explain how to post a picture, I'd apprecitate it. (only kiddin' about the 'hooligan' part. I just finished reading the latest on the '57 Replica thread. Things are getting wild over there.):)

Not actually a 'garage picture'. The garage isn't heated. I'll ride when it's cold sometimes, but once the salt hits the road, I push the Pans into the family room. A few Christmas lights on this one and I'm good to go!

It's a Wayne 70. I beat it back into shape and did a rattle can resto. on it a few years ago. Breathed enough lead from the 75 year-old paint to stunt my brain forever.

Thanks for the kind words. If I can figure out how to photograph the painting from straight in front with enough light and without the reflection from the flash, I'll post a better image.

Scott is (one of) the artist(s) who paints officially licensed paintings for the MoCo.

The early RR China was Maddocks, from England. Later most came from Syracuese. I will be building a full size replica Southern Pacific #22 depot as my retirement home. I was planning on having a dining car trackside to it. The real estate bust ruined that part of the plan.

Panacea,
Probably after a few! Almost all of those wrenches have motorcycle makers names on them. Iver Johnson, Indian, Pierce, Curtis, etc. The twisted one does not, I just liked it. And there is the "King Dick", a couple just marked " Motor Cycle", and of course the H-D ones with no markings. Check out the little ball pein hammer, marked Vlchek Tool one side, Motorcycle other side. It has a tire spoon on the end. Its a clincher era tool.

Well, I'd ask you what you need, but I already know you have almost everything, and the only thing you're looking for is so rare and valuable, I'd go broke trying to work a deal to trade for your truing arbor..!
And I have so very little, in comparison-- and what I do have, I'm certain you already do too.....! (sigh)
But if you'd like to offer a suggestion for a trade, or even an outright sale, please shoot me a PM...! I really do need a truing arbor, I intend to make the attempt at lacing and truing wheels someday soon....

How about a picture of the truing stand arbor. I also have the stand, but no arbor for Harley wheels. I made an arbor for my Indian wheels, but my Harley friends feel left out
Also, did Harley have a "kit" for the stand for different wheels or did 1 setup do them all?

50 Indian,
Here is the standard arbor for star hub wheels. The only other one is for Servi-Car hubs. On many others I just use the axle if it is constant diameter, or I'll sleeve one end to keep it level. The end of the shaft are 1/2", and the threded portion is 5/8" for approx 2 3/4". The step is the inner diameter of the large end of the star hub. Pretty simple affair.

Its a 47 WR, It was the local harley dealers until some time in the 80's, it used to have a sportster front end. As the story goes it has been in the Charlotte area forever, We have picture of Buck Brigance riding it behind the Charlotte dealer in the 50's. I dont know how much of it is WR it does have big fin cylinders 4 bolt intake and an original wr seat.In the old photo it had an Ibeam springer on it, Dont have the springer but we do have the bars that were on it. I will try to upload the old photo of the bike.

Pool was me trade for booze as a party er. 9 ball was right up me alley. Hard to see the table today though. LOL.. Ya ain't got an old shuffleboard table hidden away...do ya ?

That's funny Paps--- I was pretty dang good with a stick when I was younger, too. Played 1-on-1 for $1000 once! Won, too...! Loved 9-ball, but had a lot of fun with 3-ball....! Standard money game was 8-ball, regulation. 1 and 15 in the sides. Liven it up and played bank-8, too!
Man, those were the days-- I could tell you stories..!

02-04-2011, 09:37 PM
Would luv to hear them Bro ! At one time the table looked like a sheet of drafting paper to me. Seemed like there wasn't a line or angle I couldn't hit dead on. Didn't matter how many beers went down, still saw the table clearly. I never sharked anyone but they all didn't want to shell out for the next round either. Even practiced some of Minnesota Fats tricks. He was much better than me. :) I could spin it well, jump a ball or two, bank on any good bumper, and cut a 95 degree. I tell the grand kids that today and they have difficulty believing me. Never won a grand but I did drive a nice 67 Camaro home once. ;)

Bigincher
02-04-2011, 10:05 PM
Okay Paps, I'm going with a full-on hijack here.....

Here's on of my favorite bar pool-shooting events----
Back in the late '80s I was working a big job in Santa Barbara, CA. Awesome town, and I had the time of my life, being just under 40 and really hitting my prime...! I spent too much time in the bars there, and me and an Italian guy that worked for me hit the bars a lot. One Friday night we went to 'Art's Bar', I think it was out towards Goleta. Joint only had one pool table, so we each went up and put our quarters under the rail nearest the coin slot, in the line of 7 or 8 quarters.
The guy who 'owned' the table was kicking everyone's ass-- looked to be unbeatable. He was wearing a t-shirt, had "ART'S BAR, CITY CHAMPS 1988" printed on it. The 'game' was whatever the players decided, whether it was 5 bucks or 20, or whatever. So finally it was my buddy Dan's turn; the dude who owned the table asked him "What's the game?" and Dan saw that shirt and said "I like your shirt, you wanna play for shirts?"
Dan was wearing a 'job shirt' with a logo of the job (Paseo Nuevo) and the Company name, and all that. The guy says "Sure." And Dan racked them up.
Well, Dan missed a couple crucial shots, and lost. He pulled the shirt off his back, gave it to the guy, and had to go up to the bar and buy one of those $20 bar shirts that hangs on the wall behind the bar.
Now it was my turn. The guys asks me, "What's the game?"
I says "Same game? Shirt for shirt?"
I really wanted that "City Champs" shirt the guy was so damned proud of.
He says "Okay", so I racked 'em up.
Now, I don't remember how many he made before he f#cked up and missed, but my balls looked really good (he must've cleaned things up a little) so I had a lot of green to work with. I made 3 or 4, then a few more, then a couple set-up shots, and then I sunk the 8. Ran the table on him...! I stood there in that classic pose with my stick, looked at him and said, "Take it off, pal, I won it."
Oh my Gawd, you'da thought I just ran over his dog, the way he looked..! He slowly peeled off that "City Champs" shirt and tossed in on the table, and I immediately swooped it up and pulled it on over my shirt, proudly displaying for the sizable crowd to see. I even got a good round of cheers from the onlookers..!
The poor dude left--- I don't remember whether he had to buy a bar shirt or whether he left with nothing on, but I had a whole row of quarters challenging my table..! I OWNED THE TABLE NOW!
And ya know what? I was hotter'n a 2-dollar pistol that night-- nobody beat me after that. I let them call the game, whether it was for a beer or a shot of Jack, or 10 bucks, or what--- now that I think of it, I think I told 'em it was 10 bucks a stick.
Dude, I never lost the rest of the night! The band was playing by them, and I was more interested in pussy than pool, so at some point I just laid my stick on the table and hit the dance floor..!
The rest of the story you just have to use your imagination--- but Santa Barbara had 5 female for every male when I was there, so you figure it out...!

Okay, that's my hijack---------

I've got a lot more great pool stories, but we might get whacked by the hijack police..!

Paps
02-04-2011, 10:51 PM
I don't see a hi jack in the story Bro. They all fit together, goodies collected and the whole sha-bang of garage and biker life style. Is this not what the topic brings out ? That story was awesome ! Bet the split tail was great as well ! ;) I know how you must have felt that night. Couldn't miss a shot ! Was doin a lot of poolin outside of East Palestine, Ohio one summer night. Joint was just down the road from town, but out in the sticks, where the Bro's ran their knucks at hill climbing. That tavern brought everyone in. We had one dude with us that always went out lookin for a ruckus. Everyone was doin well. Pool was back and forth. Jack Daniels made certain of that ! Shirts exchanged. Cash exchanged. Didn't matter though, we ended up buying each other drinks all along. We also ended up wearing each others shirts to boot. Snatch was great. All the Little Ladies were Hoties. Anyhow...did I mention the rowdy one who tagged along ? He decided to start his own party. Behind the bar was a full length mirror. Out of now where he sends and empty bottle of Paps Blue Ribbon beer into it. The mirror explodes ! All hell breaks loose. Had several sucker punches land on me face. I survived but the Man was a comin. Owner made sure of that ! One dude trying to escape dumped his Sporty chopper. I and my party, minus the idiot who started the ruckus, lifted the Sport chop into the shag carpet van we commondeered on the moment. left our bikes behind. Dude with the van was willing but he didn't expect the Sporty to have a cracked case, which dumped filthy oil oil all over his shag carpet. He was very forgiving and zoomed out of the area quickly. Next day we went back and retrieved our bikes. What a watering hole that place was. It still stands though it has been closed for several decades. Stories such as yours sure bring out the hard drive memories Bro ! LOL

I gotta question for you. That '47 - '50 'Speedball' tank emblem in your display has black painted letters. Most of the original ones I've seen have red painted letters. I've seen a few like yours though that appeared to be untouched 'Foxcraft' badges with black letters. What's the deal? Were they different in different years or just like that at random? I think Field's Panhead book claims that the originals all had red lettering. What few reference pics I have are all black and white photos. Just wondering what you can tell me about what's correct. Thanks.

Clark

Originals were all red. That one was incorrectly restored.

Sorry, for those of you that noticed the lack of dash on one of our '40s, here is what is looks like with it on. I had it off to look at the cool dash lights. Does anyone know what these cool things are? Any info would be cool. Thanks.

Since I have your attention, take a look at the speedo in the above post. I've asked this before, but does anyone know anything about this speedometer? Most only have 2mph markers, but this one has 1mph markers. Very different than others. What is it?? Thanks.

If it's about Stewart-Warner speedometers and this fellow doesn't know, it's not worth knowing:

This thread has been dead too long,
So here is a new addition to my shop. Drug it home last week, the cylinder is perfect and really cleaned up well. Not sure if I'll restore it or leave it as is. Not sure what globe I'll put on it either. Perhaps Indian gas. I have a nice curved Indian gas sign. What better to park a Harley in front of!!Ha-Ha

Back in 1956 as a 9 year old I watched my pop take a boiler top and drawing out this design with his name and year with a piece of soap stone and then take a torch and burn it out. It was designed to be the cap for a farm pond overflow. It didnt work well as it caught a lot of stuff and would plug up. All these years later I whipped up a wall bracket and mounted the thing on my outside shop wall.

This is hanging from my shop ceiling. I've whacked my noggin on it many times but it's still better than having it on the floor. It's a circa 1916+ Rogers sidecar that would be correct for 3 of my motorcycles. I'd like to leave it as-is but I would also like to restore it for my 1916 Excelsior. Tough decision.

Eric, I was originally thinking about building a corner type shelf to sit it on. It's on the floor right now and with two hacks in the shed it's a little on the crowded side. I just might hang it from the ceiling for the time being as it may be a year or two before I delve into making it roadworthy. Good idea by the way!!!

Barn is combination stables, tach room, motor shop, wood shop, loft and two bay car storage all in one. We also have well water and collect rain water for horses. We have had more rain this year than in 140 years! The river raised and flooded the pasture, barn remains dry.

Ugly around here this time of year leaves all gone. The deer bed down heavy behind the barn. No shortage of good grill meat in out freezers Robby! The horse in bottom pic is my 5-gated sadlebred. He has to be kept away from other horses & people! He almost ended up on the grill a few times!!!

Gaited horses are cool to see in action. I have an old acquaintance her who raises Peruvian Pasos. Also know some Walkers and Trotters. But I prefer to see them at a distance.
Although occasionally they are a necessary evil!

Funny how you can walk a horse right up to a deer, they stand there and gawk at you! Judging by the rear girthstrap [ buck strap] they must pull some pretty rugged duty with those beasts! they sure do look packed up, well fed, muscled out. You guys are mixing pleasure with buisness!!
