I was just watching Rumble Fish again and man is it a great movie. Everything about Mickey Rourke's character "the Motorcycle Boy" just screams cool and he reminds me of Mike Conley (RIP) as well. Graffiti on the tunnel wall reads "The Motorcycle Boy Reigns." Lobby cards are from an Ebay auction.

I'm a nut when it comes to old t-shirts, especially of the custom motorcycle genre (type "Durfee" in the search box to see an early 1970s one), so when I stumpled upon this Jammer Cycle Products t-shirt yesterday I had to buy it. Its up on Ebay if anyone is interested as I'm way to skinny to run a muscle tee.

How awesome is this Knuckhead Rene of Australia sent over? This beauty graced the pages of a 1968 Cycle Guide and has to be on my personal top ten knuckles of all time list! Thank you Rene as this Cycle's a beauty with its pre-unit front end, sky high pipes, rippled, and trumpeted, super low stance, and exquisite molding. All I can say is WOW!!!!

Both of these photos came from a late 60s Men's Magazine article on the Hells Angels.
As far as I know the Bell 500-TX helmet was first produced in 1962 but I've been watching the 1968 examples like the one shown here...
I know a lobby card of this same image was posted earlier but I think this one is much clearer. Harley drag bike heading down the line. E...
Correct me if I'm wrong as this Ebay bike is an "exact" replica of Peter Fonda's Panhead in Wild Angels but I don'...
