Found this shot of Jack Black on what looks like an old Triumph Dirt Tracker. He is obviously paying homage to Evel Knievel. Thought I’d add a pic of the legend himself. Of course Evel is riding the all american Harley Davidson. Some of you might be surprised to hear that Evel Knievel owned a Honda Motorbike Dealership in the 60’s.
Deluxie Customs is a Japanese custom shop that doesn’t use SR400’s. Looks like they mainly customize old triumphs and Harleys. The Triumph below is a 1972 T100R Hill-Climber. Looks pretty sweet in the candy red pearl with white seat. Nice work.

Only a few days since I wrote about the 59 club on this blog I have just heard that Father Bill Shergold died 2 days ago. He was one of the founders of the club. No doubt he will be missed by loads of rockers and bikers all over the world. RIP.

Stupid Crown has a unique name that matches their unique style. They are another Japanese Custom Shop producing some out of the ordinary bikes. The Honda Monkey sidecar pic is one of my favourites…
The 59 Club played a major part in shaping the Rocker and Cafe Racer culture. I love these vintage pictures from the 59 club days. If you want to see more check out Graham Hulletts Photographic Collection . (Graham was the club leader from 1962 to 1970).
Just found this photographer called Tony Starr from Melbourne, Australia through Speed Junkies (which is a fresh blog). He is the proud owner of a 1973 Honda CB350. But it was his photography that got me really excited…
Heres some tasty rides from Berry Bads in Japan. I have been drooling on my keyboard looking at some of these bikes. Their blog is worth checking out as well. Lots of tech pics (love the fish pipe) and also some vids of them riding these beautiful machines.
