    "Three days ago, this 1963 Triumph Bonneville desert sled, built by Ekins and piloted by the King of Cool himself, sold at Bonhams in Vegas for a staggering $103,500."

    I do believe I've seen that bike in person, with the man himself aboard it as well...

    Was at my friends house and he had this Matchless on his lift, he built 10 of these years ago. The owner of this one wanted to take some compression out of the motor so he had just completed it.

    Gorgeous bike! Are those the stock forks turned down? They don't look like Cerianis

    Yamaha DT-1 Christmas Valley 1971.jpg

    My do-it-all 1968 Yamaha DT-1, Christmas Valley 1971. Real desert sleds were a dying breed as the 2-strokes were lighter, better suspended and plenty fast. By now most of the big Brit twins were back home in the shop, Huskies ruled and modified Japanese enduros were the most common (and affordable) bikes on the starting line. Die hard Brit guys still ran the lighter unit construction thumpers, but had to work like Hell to keep up. We called BSA Victors "Victims."
