We're leavin' back to Finalnd in an hour or so. Yesterday i went to downtown Frisco to get some coffee and ran into this dude. Almost spilled my morning coffee all over the streets!! MATCHING EVERYTHING!!!Whats up! And he had a bigger stereosystem than my car has. True Gangsta.Thats the kinda style i dont really get.But i propably dont even have to...
And as allways, its good to see Herbie back on the street on Christmas time.
Went to check out the San Francisco Vintage Cycles shop today and met one of the owners ( i think). He's called Chris, a really nice dude.We had a little talk and checked out the places and i bought a helmet. Chris told me they started the thing 'cause it was hard to find jobs around Bay area.They restore and build mostly old British bikes but i think i saw one Yamaha there as well. If youre in the area go say hi. Im on a family vacation so we didnt have that much time to shoot the shit and take pictures but you get the idea. They've got a website HERE
And couple of days earlier i drove down to San Jose to skate with my friend Louie. He took me to Harrys HofBrau to eat some Turkey.Which was nice.
Her´s some flicks and storys behind early custom scene mostly from helsinki, there´s allso some of the first choppers built in cold north. I guess it´s only in finnish but you can allways dig the flicks. These guy´s were the rebels those days and ive have had pleasure to meet some of them and hear some sick stories what happend those days.
Just finished this one for a guy from sweden, hope he´s happy with the result. The rest of bike was neat when i saw pics of it last summer, now he´s doing some rebuilding on it and i´m sure it´s gonna be really good lookin Triumph on streets of Norrköping.
Some Finnish engineer did this starmotor inside a back wheel of a motorsickle in the 1920's pretty dope innit??!! Check out the exhaust, it runs inside the wheel. The carburetor is on the other side inside the brakedrum. Last friday was cool. I went to Technical Museum of Helsinki and after that we had lunch at Beefy Queen (the name says it all) and after that had some beers at Bar Llamas. Good stuff all around.
