Actually it was in Rapid City. Since it was Legend, most of the bikes were low fat tire bikes that dont really fit in here.

I snapped some of the cooler ones.

NYC Choppers, cool guys, they came to my party Saturday night in Sturgis. They hung out with their bikes and sat on my Ts tires all day. Once again, these guys were the coolest, un-pretentious.

The redbike was nice, the blackbike was nicer.

Notice the Boydbike in the cornner behind me next to the shitters!

Is the turbo thumper a buell? I'm really likin' it. It looks like a good way to get power out of the blast engines.
Sorry guys, thats all I have for bike pics. I bet the NYC Chopper website has more info on their shit. I can ask the boys at Legend about the rest of the bikes. Their after-party hosted the Reverend, they were to play at 10, we had a monsoon, they went on after midnight, Got back into town at 3am...............I need a nap.

That's a big twin with a cylinder blocked off. Stickin' a turbo there to fill in the space was cool. How's it SOUND? BANG BANG BANG!!!!!! Right?

Never got to hear it run Tim. I fired up the T before the awards and got the fuck out. Wanted to beat traffic to Sturgis. A cool note, my dad was at a golf course several blocks away and could hear me when I fired up the 348. He was golfing with a 409 collecter, guess the guy got wood when it fired among a sea of V twins?

I am with you on the single idea. I see a huge lack of creativity in powerplants.

Soooo....do they just counter-balance the flywheel? How do you keep it running smooth? And are you getting half the power before you put the turbo on? I guess a turbo would be almost essential then, eh?
The thing looks fucking cool...

Damn Tman.....that's all the pics you got??!? :rolleyes:
Guess I shouldn't say anything as I left my camera at the hotel........

Man, this gathering of bikes was right-on. I don't give a fuck WHAT you say---shiny/billit/fat tire/etc....I don't CARE---it was some of the FINEST craftsmanship I've ever seen......kinda like an art show. :rolleyes:

Wish somebody had some pics of those two early Sporty bobbers out of Kendall Johnson's shop(I *think* cause of the keychain on the key in the ignition :confused: ) anyway....rear seat made from a Chevy script valve cover...brass seat pan with louvers.....etc

Good seein ya there Tman. That little show was the static highlight of my whole trip :cool:

Hell, the highlight for me was some southern dude walking up and asking if I was a HAMBer!!!!!!!!! Nice to meet you! I got a buddy that has pics of the show and the after party with the Rev. I will get them on disk and post em.

You are right about the quality, even for the big tire bikes, there was some nice shit.
