Early BSA Chopper Survivor!

I was sifting through a killer photo set of 60's and 70's choppers that Paul posted on his blog, and immediatedly recognized this BSA as an old chop that Ton Up Tim (Trophy Motorcycles) had rescued a while back from the original builders basement in Ocean Beach. He built it in San Diego in 1965 and supposedly, that picture was taken at the "San Diego Motorcycle Show". Check out the rotary payphone in the background! A few things were changed while the previous owner's brother owned it, but the paint and general build style remain intact and this bike will soon be back on the streets of San Diego. Amazing bike!

King of Clubs- Car/Bike Show and Drag Racing!

I know it's kinda late to post this, but it's that time of year- 6th Annual King of Clubs Car/Bike show! Drag racing, music, girls, and booze- good times! My ol lady made the flyer and forgot to put bikes on there (I know...) Hopefully the cool weather will last til this weekend. As always, pre-evo bikes are welcome and can drag race on the 1/8 mile strip. You gotta have a helmet and a leather jacket to run. There's gonna be a bunch of bikes this year- Trophy Motorcycles has put together a Triumph 750 dragster that they're going to run. There's also a trophy for best bike. Trust me- you'll want this trophy!
