I was looking at the street chopper with the chromed out bike with the dual skinny tube tanks just last night. Fuck, that thing is really nice.

Looks like a Lucas lense, you can get them from CCI

Yeah, diggers are back...slowly, but surely they are diggin' towards us... If I check my mags it seems that the first digger styled bikes appeared around '74-'75 and I got some mags from 1980 that still have a few in'em...Later as 1980 most bikes with hardhead framed bikes are build in a more Performance/Dragster look so to speek..

Very insightful... Did a digger style bike ever win the Oakland roadster show?

Yes, but it seems that most "winning" diggers were Jap powered bikes.. Bob Cechhini won 4 times in a row the Oakland show, this pic is '79 with his turbocharged Kawasaki "Fire Dragon", that's Horst the painter with him on the pic...

I've heard about that Rocky's place but never been there. Is that always on display? I might have to trek on up there after work sometime just to see it.

This one is Honda powered and is a roller already.
