41 FLTT Carb Prep

Felt bad that I was such a slacker and didn't get the 41 done for Rhinebeck...I began on the carb today. Didn't finish it yet but wanted to fit it on the motor and check things out...41 carb body was painted silver. I just threw that deflector on to get a feel...not sure about it...

Rinebeck 2011 Part 4

36 EL

40 UL

Nice 101

Mike's Chopper with 1970 NJ Plate

Not sure what's going on here...

...or here...



I think this finishes up my shots from Rhinebeck 2011. Had a great time again!

The Hudson Valley guys along with the Coalition of Chapters put a ton of work into this meet and do a great job.

The weather was a little funky from time to time and they had to have the Motorcycle Time Line indoors this year but the facility has huge connected buildings with plenty of room to spare.

Larry Bishop at Rhinebeck???

Larry is that you?

You be the judge...

Was that Larry Bishop of Hell Ride (and many other biker flicks) at Rhinebeck...or just another guy from Jersey?
