March 11: ERIC
I'm puttin together a '71 Bonnie cafe and it needs somethin to put the gas in...go figure! I'm torn between a manx style alloy or triumph euro "breadbox" tank. The bike has an alloy solo seat which was hand hammered and wheeled by my close buddy Carpy (cb750cafe.com), so I figured the alloy fuel tank would be fitting. The frame is powdercoated a gloss olive green and I'm usin WWII era British roundel decals on the tank and elsewhere on the bike. Just curious as to if ya got somethin layin around that might fit my needs or know someone that could build a manx tank.

I really enjoy reading what you fellas do. Here in the middle of Illinois, we are controlled by the weather (short riding season and COLD!) Having ridden BSAs since high school (1965) I am really tickled to se all of the interest in the older Brit bikes!!
MB: good to here from you, stay warm. mb

New This year: a Vintage motor cycle race and Motocross…
This year it will be bigger and better than ever. Building on the last 3 years of Rallies and shows… we have now expanded to a larger venue… and because we at Hell On Wheels really love racing. We are adding the Scramble to the mix. Yes, in addition to the insane line-up of events from years past, this year we will include actual motorbike racing… and just to ensure that everyone can have a good time and get home safely we have arranged it so everyone can camp out at the track… yeah sleep it off before heading home. Sort of a Gypsy run... party... and ride home...
We have had tons of interest and queries from all over the world about this year’s event and we are expecting upwards of 500 in attendance. At least 200 bikes and hot rods. 20 or so of the most beautiful classic style pin-up girls in So Cal. And 5 of the best underground bands in the country…
In order to afford this party we need the help of sponsors. So if you or anyone you know might be interested in suppoting this event... please let us know...
Support at any level will be appreciated. Sponsorships will go to help cover the cost of the event, provide prizes for the pageant and bikes and hot rod show and advertising.
We typically have about a dozen motorbike and car clubs join us for this event and we are looking forward to even more this year.
We are also looking for volunteers to help out with planning and implementation for the event...
So if you are interested in sponsorship or volunteering... please let me know.

A few monthes back we had the pleasure of inviting Riders Magazine from Italy into the shop. We weren't really sure we would give them the photo documentation they were looking for....but we had fun having them follow us around with the camera anyway. Of course we took them to In n' Out for a famous CA hamburger and shake, and with all of that excitement MB got alittle crazy while test riding the bike he was working on that day. Took it out to the rock pit down the street and did some burn outs...luckly the owner Greg Kazen was forgiving. The pictures and article made it into the mag, we aren't really sure what the article says since it is in Italian, hopefully good stuff.

Mike must have known about our ride, it stoped raining and the sun was out for our scheduled memorial to him.
