Trike Thursday...The LAT Trike

I guess this is a copy of California Cycle Works "Two Stroke" machine. It appears to be powered by two 750's. LAT put out some cool rides in their day, but this one fails miserably in the styling department.

WTF Wednesday...Multi-Tasking

Now possible with the all new hands-free beer can! Say good bye to wasted time sitting around drinking. Imagine the possibilities. Now you'll cut your build times in half, thanks to the use of an extra hand. Makes a perfect gift for that loner or shut-in on a busy schedule. Available at finer retail distributors nationwide.

Trike Thursday...The Himsl Brothers

This got kicked up on the JJ the other day. It seems the molds for the Himsl brothers trike body have been found. It appears they've been stored outside. Hopefully, they're not too racked from the sun.
If you don't know who Art and Mickey Himsl are, check them out. Art graduated from San Francicsco Art Institute and immediately hit the custom car/bike scene. They've won the AMBR, built countless show cars, and cranked out countless killer paint jobs. Art is still knocking out killer striping and paint today!

Digger Monday...Double Trouble

Bill Gardner built this pair of diggers for two brothers. They needed them ready at the same time. Bill stretched the frames using a a pair of his hardheads. One way to tell a GMA hardhead is they only use one mounting bolt for the front engine mount and the upper mount is pretty unique also. I've got one of these on the burner in the shop right now!

This bike was a total game changer when Reed built this Yamaha. Corbin restored this bike a few years back.

Digger Tuesday...Something "Especial"

What happened to Digger Monday? I've been super busy. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
Remember Arlen's Especial? After finishing the show circuits and being street ridden for awhile, Arlen yanked the motor and sold it. Interestingly enough, the powerplant that was removed was used in Ness-tique. Anyway, Ed Sorenson picked up the pieces with the help of Barry Cooney and got this killer digger back on the road. Jim Davis and Arlen built the frame. It uses rubber blocks on either side of the swingarm center for suspension. It works very similar to a draft gear on a railroad car, and allowed for 2" of travel in both directions. Bob Monroe fabbed the oil and gas tanks. Of course, the leaf was done by the best there ever was, Jeff McCann.

Ride Like Hell E.D.!!!

Takin' the Babylon Taxi for that big ride in the sky. Ride hard my brother!

Trike Thursday...Ladies Love A 3 Wheeler

Steve's killer Honda 750 trike utilizes a narrowed Corvair rear to get the power to the ground. Nader would have surely declared this "unsafe at any speed", if he had seen this!
