This is one event that I never miss. The SCSC (Southern California Speedboat Club) has been racing boats at Marine Stadium since 1946!! Who knows how much longer events like this will go on for, there is even talk of Top Fuel Hydro's coming back to Marine Stadium!! A couple friends of mine are racing in the Grand National class and I'm lookin forward to throwin back some cold ones, bbq'n some hot links and cheering them on!!
Go Fast...Turn Left!!
Another Hell On Wheels Vintage MX Race and Rally in the history books. A bitchin' time was had and we can't for H.O.W. 2013!! That '74 MX100 I bought turned out to be quite the little screamer and I was able to get my revenge on Scotty for the battle I lost last year!! Haha...next year he'll probably T-bone me!! More pictures soon...
Thanks to Burly Brand and Rickypics for the bitchin' photos!!
It was time to start tearing in to the '74 MX100 that I plan to race in the mini class at Meatball's Hell On Wheels Rally this June. Hopefully I can have this thing back together and running by June 16th!!
Brought a few things back to the garage from the Long Beach cycle swap last sunday. My favorite is this old racer's trunk and the stories told through old stickers!
The 2012 Hell On Wheels Rally & Vintage Scramble is coming up this June and it was perfect timing to stumble across this '74 Yamaha MX 100 a few weeks back. It doesn't run, but that shouldn't be a problem, I blew up my MX 360 two weeks before last years H.O.W. Rally and still got it running for the race!! Hahahaha... so atleast I have a few months to get this little 2 smoker running for the Mini Class!! Check out the folding rear foot pegs and the foam fork guards!! Sweet!
Painted my brains out on these and now they're finally hanging up at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach! They measure 16"x18" and they're painted on 1/8" sheet metal with One Shot enamel and mounted to a sheet of 1/2" thick varnished plywood.
My Pops painted this for me when I was a youngster sometime around '89 and he had Kelly's Krazy Painters do the numbers an lettering. Thanks Dad! Custom helmet paint was all the rage from the mid 80's through to the late 90's, but when helmets started showing up on the shelves with digital graphics printed on them, the custom paint disappeared.
This place is... old motocross, old flat bottom race boats, heavy logs, boobs from the 60's, ice cold beer and occasionally some kustom paint. Sometimes it's cool, most of the time it's a drag. Cheers!
