Absolutely the quickest and least expensive way to lower your swing-arm motorcycle is to use struts to replace the shock/suspension units. This also immobilizes the swing-arm allowing the fender to be mounted very close to the tire with clearance problems caused by suspension equipment. The tire and fen...
HARDTAIL MAGAZINE IS COMING BACK!
GARBAGE TRUCKS BEGONE!
That’s John Ventriglia, CEO of Rivera/Primo first rider on the left sitting on his early 1970’s style “hardtail” chopper motorcycle probably somewhere on Highway 1, near Huntington Beach, California. Yes, that is a super chromed 1969 Harley-Davidson “Shovelhead” motor. I wanna know….what the hell is that cop car doing in back of the bikes?

HOW TO FLY A 1963 CHEVY UPSIDE-DOWN & BACKWARDS!
IT REALLY WASN’T WORTH THE EFFORT!
It was the early summer of 1969, the Manson Family had yet to kill Sharon Tate, and others. The Vietnam war was starting to become politically incorrect. Free love was still in effect, at least near the intersection of Haight and Ashbury in the city of San Francisco, as well as across the Bay in the city of Bezerkly. Near the Berzerkly of 1969 University campus one could easily find any drug one want...

One year in Sturgis, Mark Shadley and myself had our sidecar outfit at the Holiday Inn in Spearfish and I was giving sidecar rides to all takers with the courage to have me doing the steering.

GLENCOE CAMP RESORT
Why do I spend a lot time hanging out at Glencoe during the Sturgis motorcycle rally? I’m always looking for a bike to photograph for magazine use……that’s just one of the reasons…if you’ve got a magazine quality bike and want me to take a look, please visit me at Glencoe Camp resort. I cruise all the big campgounds looking for Iron. I also like hanging out with bikers who know how to have a good time. Why is Glencoe called a camp resort? Trees, shade and pave...
