This year is flying by...

OK...Again wanna thank everyone that stops by and checks out my blog on a semi regular basis! I really appreciate it!

I'm going to be taking a few days off for Thanksgiving and whatnot, so this might be my last post here until Saturday or so...Keep checking back...something sorta interesting may pop up here; who knows?

Anyway, hope everyone has a good holiday!


2008 is almost gone! Can't believe how fast this year has gone by!

Talk about an expensive planter for that tree!

I've always thought that these were neat cars

And to let two of them rust away like

I believe this to be an AM...Not sure of the year though

I'm going to go cry shame:

Great engraving

Awesome engraving by one of the best, Mr. CJ Allan...I've said it before; do yourself a favor and contact him for engraving work that'll add the final touch to your build...Quality of this caliber takes time, but it's more than worth the wait and you'll be more than happy with the end results...Check out the pics below and see for yourself, then head over to and contact the man himself...

I've posted about the European version of the new HD XR1200 in the past...As I'm sure most of you know, the XR is finally coming to America in December...

Seems like there is no middle ground with peoples opinions of this bike...It's either love it, or hate it...I personally like what I've seen thus far and am happy that HD is doing something different from recent years...

I think if you take a few things off of this bike, it would be pretty cool...Can't wait to see one in person:

Little story...

Sooo...I went back home this past weekend to visit, etc, since it's been a while...There is this Mexican restaurant in town that I've been eating at for years that we always stop at whenever we're in town...Back when I used to live there many years ago, there were times that we were eating there 4 or 5 times a Mexican food!

So, we're sitting at the bar eating and drinking, talking to a guy that semi owns the place that I've become friends with over the years and I notice the Blue Moon neon sign hanging on one of the walls...Whether you drink it or not, I happen to like Blue Moon beer; the colder the better, keep the orange...haha...Actually, come to think of it, I like pretty much ANY beer...but anyway, I make a comment to my friend about that sign and how I like the beer...He responds back to me in his Mexican accent, "You like-a Blue Moon?"

"Yes", I replied...

That was the end of that discussion for the next few hours...As we say good bye and start walking to the door to leave, my friend hands me the sign..."Dis-a for jew, my friend." he said, as he handed me the neon sign...

I was stoked!

Those guys are always great to us every time we visit and that night was no exception!

Anyway, I like things with stories and meaning behind them and just thought I'd share some of my ramblings with you guys! haha...

Here's the sign:

Gas tank

Had a bunch of people emailing for a more detailed pic of my gas here ya go:

Stickers are finally here!

OK! So I finally have my stickers in hand that I've been working on for a little bit now...I'm pretty happy with how they came out overall!

Sooo, I've had a bunch of people email me previously about stickers; you're name is on the list and I'll be sending them out next week...Anyone else that is just now seeing this and would like a couple, feel free to email me (hold.fast1979 AT with your info and I'll be glad to send you some...The stickers cost me next to nothing, so there is no charge for that and postage is on me...Email me soon, because the supply is going fast!

Thanks again for checking out my blog and for all of the support...I really appreciate it!


Neat Indian

Lotus Elise

Amazing that this thing is left to fall apart of the side of the road!

1948 Panhead

I think one of the neatest things about this bike is the expendable "sport" windshield:

Another picture that I can hardly look at!

To see vintage and classic sports cars left to rust and rot away outside! I don't see how people let this stuff happen...makes me sad to see this!


1963 Stingray

I'll be posting more heartbreaking pictures later!

1948 Harley Davidson WR TT

More vintage super car pics!

1972 Maserati Boomerang

1968 Ferarri P6

1970 Lancia Stratos Zero

I don't have a ton of info on this car, but even at the end of 2008 it still looks pretty futuristic! Can't imagine what people thought of the thing in 1970!

Crazy Ferrari Zobin Concept vehicle

Tiki Tuesday!

Interesting looking video camera

This one is still my favorite!

New stuff by Li Wei

I've posted some of this guys stuff on here before and always thought it was pretty interesting...I found some of his newer work recently:

Coke bike?

I'd never seen or heard anything prior to now about a Coca-Cola "theme" bike, but apparently they/someone built one at some point...I think it looks pretty awful, but still some neat history...They had the bike sitting in an area of the museum that was poorly lit and more or less off the beaten path...Anyway, here are some bad pictures of the thing:
