You did it again, Wes. I come in on a Monday morning and you've banged out a post that literally has me reading with my mouth hanging open.

Amazing photographs. It's surprising to me that the photography of that time was good enough to capture those action shots. You guys bitch about who's got the smallest digital camera. These guys were probably lugging around some kind of large format Graflex and a tripod, ferchrissakes.

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing these pictures with us. I'm forever in your debt. You, your brother and your trials bikes are invited to ride around my living room any time.
This is"dad"..Took those photos with a $29 Kodak Bantam. 828 film which is 28mm x 40mm. Did my own processing and printing. Made some 20" x 24" prints that were very good. No longer have these prints. Warren Weber

It's a pleasure & an honor to reply to your post. Move over Webber boys, pops ins my new idol.

Read a couple posts back from Dragoon. My dad was in Evergreen, CO in '47 and talked about riding with some locals. Is Evergreen even near you guys?

Warren, everyone I have shown those pictures to has just stood there with thier mouth open. Thank you SO much for taking them. By the way, wasn't $29 close to a weeks pay in 1950?

I'm so excited to see a look back like that. There are lots of old pictures of guys standing next to bikes looking all dapper and stuff, but it's something entirely different to see guys wheeling this things around just having fun.

Thanks for sharing CCCO. To see this kind of thing passed down through a family is heartwarming.

I was getting $50 for a 48 hour week. My fully loaded 1950 74 cost $1335. Gas was $.26 per gallon. Many summer evenings after work we rode over old Loveland pass to the old town of Dillon to the Wildwood Inn to have a cup of coffee. The pass is over 11000 feet and very cool after dark.

Warren:

Thanks a lot for the information. I looked around a bit to try and find the camera you were using. Think this is it? Later versions weren't collapsable and just looked like a regular 35mm camera.

Outstanding photography!

I'm just blown away. Like someone else said " lots of pictures from that era with the guys just lounging aroung" But to have the action shots and candid photos give the real sence of who they are.
True Trail Blazers of the modern Motorcycle era.
Truly Awsome!

Well guys what can I say that has not been said?

Thanks is a good start, really great stuff.

You guys rock, really that is so cool, and so great that you have pics of it all.

Well this thread has made it all the way over to Japan, someone put a link up on our Gaijin riders BBS (Gaijin is foreigner in Japanese) so I'm sure some of the board will come by.

Thanks again!!

At least they were not afraid to ride in the rain!

Cheers!
