The Show

The venue was on the 3rd floor of this old abandoned building and it couldn't have been better.
Plenty of space. The natural lighting throughout the day was constantly changing, making the paint jobs POP and the chrome glisten.

They needed the space too because the line of people buying tickets never stopped all day!

It was cool to see some of the BUILD bikes that Warren does with the high school kids.
I do a cylinder head for them every year.

Bill Rodencals '39 WLDD was there and it's the only other one I've got to see in person. Our Vin #s are 22 apart, makes you wonder how many days apart they went together? I never did get to pick Bill's brain about their history but I'm sure he knows a lot about it. We'll meet again I'm sure.

These bikes were sweet!

I hadn't seen either of these bikes before in person.
It's really great to kneel on the floor and see all the details.

Noots pan is looking better than ever. Excited to hear his new engine run.
PS found a big bruise on my arm when I got home and the only thing I can think of is maybe it was Noots monster grip as he threw me out of the HD cafe. Hahahahaha. We had fun!

They didn't run out of beer at Mama Tried!

Baas family photo session. Such nice people!

This Kmodel dragster was probably the closest thing you could get to "riding an engine"
I wonder how light it was? Aluminum frame!

I hadn't seen Dave's flathead in person but it is just as nice as all the pictures you've seen of it.
Very cool. The polished fins, WOW. and the paint!

I didn't take any pictures at the Show Class party but it was pretty intense! My dad said it was just like parties used to be back in the day.
Jam Packed, So Loud and So Rowdy! My ears are still ringing.

This picture about sums it up. Most fun you could have without riding a motorcycle!
