Default Early IL, Gasoline Alley, Psycho Cycles, NY etc

Looking for some pictures of NY choppers from the 80's-90's, like Psycho Cycles, Gasoline Alley, Steg, Larry, on and on. The IL site doesnt have much of the earlier stuff, and the internet doesnt have much info on Steg, Psycho Cycles, and whatnot.

steg has a place called kill city cycles in Cali where he builds bikes on a very small scale. I don't even think he has a website anymore.

Sam (aka Samantha Morgan, R.i.P.) taught Larry to ride the Wall of Death, said he was a natural.


This is a bike on the rollers, outside the Wall, usually a crowd draw/warmup.
