Lindsey Marie Hanson on her beautiful customized vintage Harley, captured hitting “The Snake” near Los Angeles, CA. 
You’ve probably seen photos from “The Snake” without even realizing- it’s a 21-turn portion of Mulholland Highway just above the Rock Store. “Edwards’ Corner” is the last turn heading uphill through the snake and is rather internet famous for capturing motorcyclists outriding their bike, talent, and/or conditions.

Went to a few antique and vintage shops today in Ventura… awesome stores and a couple scores. Rotations was by far my favorite, with the 50cc Indian minibike, vintage motorcycle stuff sprinkled throughout a bunch of other wares including old street signage and antique photos of women and motorcycles. I snagged an old pair of leather motorcycle pants there, and the owl business card holder at Time Bomb. 

Good stuff.

Installing the Chainsikle low sets on Caroline’s sporty last Friday, just before the bike and I fell off the stand.

I realized that now both my builds have my blood, sweat, and tears in them. I really don’t want this to be a pattern.

The Dual Sporty Project saga continues…

Installing the Chainsikle low sets on Caroline’s sporty last Friday, just before the bike and I fell off the stand.

I realized that now both my builds have my blood, sweat, and tears in them. I really don’t want this to be a pattern.

The Dual Sporty Project saga continues…

Caroline’s sporty just punched me in the face. A whole shop of people just watched me, and it, topple off the stand. Don’t worry… I broke it’s fall with my face. No damage… and better tie downs now. Won’t be happening again.

That’s what I get for not asking for help- I needed another hand on the shift lever so I could figure out positioning. Instead I carefully leaned over (or so I thought) to twist the bolt by hand and… oh oh oh the bike started to tip and all of a sudden I was falling head first toward the next motorcycle lift. Yes I’m fine, I hit my nose on the other bike, and the Sporty landed on my head. Bruised, probably going to have a shiner, but totally okay.

If any of you ever have anxiety about looking like a fool working on, around, or riding motorcycles.. Just remember this moment and laugh at me.

That is all.

Can’t help but love their interesting bikes, some are pretty wild. She’s got a purple jewel style suicide shifter that sits behind her leg… nuts!

The joy of mechanical triumphs- you can see it in his smile. Wrenching can be incredibly rewarding… once you’re through the cursing phase. Photograph from Crude Behavior by Mark Choiniere.

Famous and talented painter Georgia O’Keefe hitching a ride on her land, Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM with Maurice Grosser on his 1938 Harley Davidson Knucklehead. Photographed by Maria Cabot circa 1944.
Fun fact- when I was in Primary School, fifth grade, we did a huge project for an event called, “Night of the Notables” wherein we would dress up as our chosen historical figure. We had to create a large display board of our work and talk about it as if we were the person we were portraying. My choice? Georgia O’Keefe. It was fantastic being able to hang her paintings of flowers and skulls as a child.
