ah yes the Mega Hauler and Mega Cycle. its funny, Roth originally named the Mega Hauler "Captain Pepi's Motorcycle and Zepplin Repair Service". and the hauler was supposed to have a custom sportster but through a series of trades he aquired Bob Acquistepace's custom Triumph. i almost wish he stuck with the original name. :D anymore pics?

..what I heard was : Robert Williams named it " Captian Pepi's..etc" (sounds like him) and Roths sporty didnt fit so he traded to get the Triumph that would fit...

Noooooo, Ed Newton did the original design for Roth in '66.
Wow I'm glad you guys know the history on that bike. That's the first time I think I seen it. Jimi hendrix Red house came on right when I started taking pics of. Gave me a warm feeling. I own two unit trumps but I'm dying to do a preunit. Irish Rich can't wait to see you on T.V tonight. I met you in Sturgis on a raining night at the WCC tailer. I was out there helping my buddy at that time he was working for the Detroit Bros. Now he don't. It was a pleasure. I been waiting to see this history of the choppers ever since you told me about it.

Yeah, I remember that. I don't do much in the HOC, just the opening riding scene, but I was honored that Jesse asked me to be part of it. I haven't seen any of the footage yet myself, so I'm looking forward to the program tonight.

Jesse had also asked about me about doing part of the Roth segment, but that didn't pan. Not enough time, I guess.
