I was just reading an online article about Cliff Vaughs , The Chosen few, the movie Easy Rider, and how Black bikers originated a lot of what has become "Chopper" standards. Cliff never got his due until recently for the creation of the bikes in Easy Rider, and the script and direction of the movie. The Vintagent did a good posy on all this awhile back
If you get the chance read "Soul on Bikes" by the prez of The East Bay Dragons out of Oakland in the 60's thru 80's. When the clubs were for guys having fun and raising Hell.
I'll check that out Hermit. Was making trips out to Oakland the last couple years...sort of work related. Want to get back and do it as a tourist. Only recently learning about that city. Sounds like an interesting read.
'posy' = post, I shouldn't try posting via the phone when I'm not awake....
Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike, Ralph, Johnny too?
