One of our @wetplatevan portraits of Rob Harmsen @triprob co-owner of @eatdust clothing in Belgium, taken in 2014 while he was in LA to buy the Sportster chopper he's sitting. This is a perennial favorite portrait!
rollinstock : ⚡️🔥
konrad_z : This portrait is juste awesome ! 👌👊👍🙌
highendhooker : Breathtakingly beautiful.
vgskcks : I hope I'm this rad when I'm older.
joshgfranklin : @funkeith
mikez1903magazine : I think I might have seen that photo before... : @vgskcks how could you not be that rad when you already are rad now

George Dance at Brooklands ca1921 with one of his special Sunbeam sprinters - side valves converted with steel barrels and aircraft OHV heads. Unbeatable at the time, the bikes probably weighed barely 200lbs.
thevintagent : Sadly, none of Dance's original racers seem to have survived @tropy73
jordospeaks : Love those goggles
bsa_dave : Whaddya mean.. There's more survived than were ever built !
cemetarypockets : Hey what's yt? That blue stuff
thevintagent : Ectoplasm no doubt @cemetarypockets - have you seen the ghost images on my tintypes? Go to @wetplatevan
cemetarypockets : Yeah I figured it was a o
cemetarypockets : Passage through, in the paranormal activity marked one's. It's has the same blue stuff
cemetarypockets : Some paranormal in the trees.

Making Nortons faster. @nycnorton-land, building up the next customer Commando engine with alloy barrels, big bores, and hot cams.

chuckchillout1 : @pinthav must have missed the "faster" part..
nickashley57 : @pinthav Cackle!!!

I didn't spec a Ground Zero for the chopper explosion for my book #TheChopperTheRealStory - but this is as close as it gets. #KennyHoward in 1946 with his crazy Indian Scout with tiny tank, custom paint, flared exhaust, and tall risers. Boom! From his biography

roadtoglory1 : That bike has a good story besides that Dutch rode it for alittle while
whitelinepsycho : Kenneth had his own frequency.
chrisfbartlett : Awesome photo Paul!

There are 3 #BroughSuperior 'kits' coming up at the Oct 18th Bonhams sale at Stafford. Two are SS100s, like this 1927 Alpine Grand Sports - a grand project indeed!

kk38k : ..#basketcase ..
occhiolungo : DQ is traveling to UK for the sale
thevintagent : Yep; his old pal supplied the Broughs and loose motors. I'd been to Gary's place once on a Velo rally on Oz - I liked him. It sucks we die. Good morning Pete! @occhiolungo
occhiolungo : Poor old guy had all that Brough stuff, but never put it together or rode one. Carpe diem!
thevintagent : I still had my Broughs when I first met him, we talked about them often, but he rode his Velos! Some people are hoarder- preservers... @occhiolungo

New to me: the 1931 prototype FN 'Becassin' by Dougal Marchant, noted Brooklands habitué. Skirted fenders long before Indian used them! Seen in #TheAutomobile this month...

forzamacchi : Lovely...
mikez1903magazine : Sweet
unitedrw3 : @chadobson @supes47 @sandojorge @hashtaggoss
nicholascolemanart : Super neat.
evanthia : Beautiful
whitelinepsycho : So sleek.
made_of_white : That would have looked like the future in 1931 and it still looks like the future in 2015.

'Hellion Harlow and her honey Hans hum the holiday highway heat on her hellacious Harley Hog.' #Alphabetics book from @gestalten - 'an aesthetically awesome alliterated alphabet anthology.'

canaille_scream : Crazy image!
voruda : @dirtyfkndan920 @tvos @chaostobin
whitelinepsycho : Lucidly lovely alliteration.
thevintagent : Gender-grinding greaseballs getting good and grimy going great guns to Gomorrah, gaily gesticulating with a glorious gesture of godlessness. @whitelinepsycho
whitelinepsycho : Sensibly sidestepping Sodom, so several schizophrenically psychotic sickle subversives save substantial sums of spondoolies and, subsequently, serendipitously soothe some sadsack savant singing silly songs of supercilious stupidity . . . phew !!! - elegant_apparatus - ilan.23 - phumsiak -

Pretty much a perfect sunset ride in the Marin Headlands - that view of the Golden Gate Bridge never gets old. Nice to have a few running bikes for friends from Berlin! An East German MZ250 for our East Getman friend @irenewyork, and a spare Triumph for @erntezeit and his son, who swapped for my Velocette and didn't kill it once - not bad for a Harley guy 😜. @suzieheartbreak is excellent company too!
cwclark_ : Very nice
wizardofx : Spare Triumph... Love it.
occhiolungo : Fun day. Sorry I couldn't make it. Next time fo sho
kurtyaeger : I got to get up there with ya. How's nov/dec?
erntezeit : Was so awesome!!! Thanks again soo much!!
good_fare : What an absolutely perfect way to celebrate the German reunification anniversary that way too, this freedom to travel is one of the best gifts that came with it.
