Here are some great shots originally posted on the Selvedge Yard blog, http://theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com, and in Duke University's photo archive: http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/search/results?t=motorcycle&rows=16. I posted a couple of pictures relating to the ripple piped bike under a post called "Ripple Pipe in 1969" and the dragon-looking bike in the third shot is Mel's Monster and I have a few shots of the whole bike in a posted by that same name! Thanks Mark Anthony for the Selvedge Yard link!

Here's a cool picture from 1965 and the caption reads: "David and Goliath all over again - Bob Loux, near side, later pitted his fuel Triumph 40-incher against 80-dual engine Triumph of Dick Rios at AHRA Championships, won wth 144.25, 10.73." The fool took the twin engine contender, nice!

A colleague at work passed along this article from the LA Times about what appears to be a cool vintage skateboard art exhibit at the California Heritage Museum, located at 2612 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90405 and running from 11/14/09 - 05/30/10. Admission is $8.00 and exhibit hours are 11 AM - 4 PM (Wednesday - Sunday). Here's a copy of the LA Times article: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-skateboard-art5-2009dec05,0,1378733.story .
