Elm Disease

seen unloved on the streets of New Haven.
Back in the store days I ebayed a ton of these 50cc gems.
The best part is having two at once and terrorizing the neighborhood with 50cc Valentino Rossi madness.

Strong Like Tractor

The mechanics at work got the boss' tractor running today.

not exactly but nicely done

Vintage Hauler

Ricky in DeLand sent me these via email. Strange trailers and strange cabover trucks. A golden tow chain to John Jurkowski, whoever he may be, for originally scanning these.

cool bike of the day

Been busy at work this week, lots of bikes getting serviced before Winter storage. This gem came in today for a carb rebuild.

A nice change from Street Glide Trikes and Screaming Eagle heated grips.

Sprint Car 7

Pistol Pete and I went down to the Chuckwagon for lunch, saw a vintage Sprint car chassis on a trailer with more pieces tucked under a tarp on the pickup hauling it. After a Gyro, I profiled a booth of dudes in the corner as the owners.
Struck up a converstaion with the guy who owns Seals It. Used to race it back in the early 60's with a fuel injected Hemi. Him and his crew of race fossils were fronting a little, so I wasn't interesting in getting more info.
Race track Dinosaurs should be happy that anyone in Connecticut even recognizes what a sprint car is.
