    None I can talk about. someone here has a bunch of really cool choppers from the seventies/eighties, and rents them out for shows. I was lucky enough to be allowed access one day to the unnamed warehouse, and WoW! there were a lot of really fucking cool bikes and trikes there.

    Many that y'all have seen in photo shoots, and PR campaigns, and many that are famous in their own right.

    I think i'll slowly start reposting the pics I took. Lighting was terrible, framing the bikes was difficult, due to how closely they're packed together.

    here's one from the 'will harley survive' thread today.

    yup. early X Files.
    Bear was a driver. iirc - he dragged her star trailer around town.
    She was an absolute sweetheart - couldn't say a bad thing about her.
    fwiw: i was on set for the infamous Peacock episode.

    Front wheel needs to be more so on a proper chopper.
