Brooklyn Bowl - Splitting Lanes and Dodging Gutters Show 2016

The theme of the Brooklyn Bowl Show - Splitting Lanes and Dodging Gutters was Race Bikes of all kinds...so I stepped outta my "comfort zone" and brought out two bikes that are a bit outta the norm for me...my Freddie Marsh Norton and my drastically updated 1937 Larry Franz Sr. Hill Climber...I  picked up my oldest son Jake over Jersey, and hit Brooklyn...

Ladies and Gentlemen...Mr. Joe Oz!

Our host Girard Fox with Joe Oz and Jake

My good friend of 30 plus years Al Perry and his 1939 WLDD
This bike has not seen the light of day since he last raced it in 1994!

Setting the stage...

Jake taking in the beauty that is Brooklyn...

Jake took a crash course in "Unloading in the Street 101"... 
Step One - Stand and watch old guys argue while you smoke a cigarette...Oh and make sure the ramp is at the steepest possible angle.

Step Two - Move outta the way of anything that looks remotely strenuous... AKA... let the old guy do it...

Step Three - Watch funny old guy perform "Dope" dance moves, while all the while staying clear of any physical activity...

Step Four - While ensuring that you are completely clear of any possibility of helping if something goes wrong, finish smoking your Newport and most importantly, make sure to take note of Rhett's fancy foot work as the rear wheel meets the pavement...OK. Jake is now a qualified Unloadologist!!! 

Note: I raised four of these "Dad's little helpers" just like this one...that's why I learned how to do everything myself...leverage is the key people!

Hhhmmm... wonder who this could be?

Race bikes of all makes and models began to show up...

Always great to hang with my old pal Rhett Rotten
