Harley Davidson 115th Anniversary - Bradford Beach Brawl 2018 - Part 2


The Track!!!

Mel, Tommy and I visited Milwaukee back in May to look at this sickly little Volley Ball Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan.... The area looked pretty cool, but the sand was soft and the whole idea seemed far fetched.... Build an Oval track and Race on this beach for H-D's 115th Anniversary... after surveying the beach, there was talk of just doing a drag race like we do at TROG... but I said No way... we gotta do an oval track and it has to be as big as possible! 


I got out there on Warren's 45 Flathead Dirt Tracker which he graciously donated to the cause and gave the beach a try... my opinion... This was fuckin' Doable!!!!


Tommy and his crew went back in September and built this track in 3 days before the race... and the rest is history!!!!

Hanging out in Milwaukee...

Unloaded and ready to roll...

Getting a jump on things...

Oilers...

With Brian Charles... after I ran over his head in turn 4... he's OK

Getting around the outside...

Oops... forgot my helmet...


Found it... yes it was raining...

Lost again... goofing around the track with Mel...

With my buddy Hiro from TT and Co.

Cruising Milwaukee in the evenings...

1945 WL "45" - Bob 'em if you got 'em!!!


Got started on this little cutie a few weeks back. I've had her since 1987 and never did much with her... until now!

Popped off the top end and everything was new! 30 over pistons, new valves etc. Lower end felt great!

Dash from the stash... 

Figured out what those two holes in the rear fender were for... 
Gimme Back My Bullets!!!!


A little help in the garage doesn't hurt...

Popped a 16 on the rear with a Firestone ANS...

Some cool crusted saddle bag mount covers...

Running a period sealed beam, to go with the bobbed theme...
Gonna be Poetry in motion baby!!!
I've since put an 18 Firestone ANS on the front as well... 
more pictures on the way!
