holy shit motherfucker!!!! please excuse me. I should be a better representer of the sinners. unfuckingbeliveable!!!! well truth be told not all of us have the same tail light. a few have old ford Lts. I hate fords, Im a chevy guy. I have an indian tail light. you just have to go out & find something you think is neet. please dont do it just cuz we do it. our whole point is to get people to do thier own thing, cheeply. find a cool lite off an old vacume cleaner or huffy bike.
do you know how many kooks have vintage ford & chevy lite's on thier bikes. the sinners didnt start it thats for sure. its lame. do your thing man, all on your own. sure, use others for insperation, but for gods sake use your own mind & imagineation. thats what its all about.!!!

Well, see, it's an old Sinner tradition. You have to have somebody witness you steal one (or two if you own a rod) before you can get in. No fair going here and buying one:

That's like going to Wally World and buying lady's panties for your next requirement.

Or, if you're a puss, you can just pay $5000.00, and you get to skate the above.

Oooops! Was I supposed to talk about this stuff?

Thanks man!
Old microphone from the 1940's...

G.
Well it serves me right that I missed it down there by the license plate. I didn't even get all the way to the back of your bike before I got busy going outside to set all my crap on fire and start again.

That looks smaller than a lot of the mikes of that era that I've seen but it looks great as a taillight. Did you get it from Fuller's over north of the Heights or did you scrounge it from someplace?

Hah!
Mike Fuller is a friend of mine, I shop there for strings and such.
I found a source for the microphone shells, without guts.
They have all been used up, but I get them on ebay and such.
People will practially throw away a non-working mic, which is perfect for me.
I have a few now that I'm working on that are real art-deco looking.
I'll get a pic up soon.

I got an old 20's Dodge Brothers tail light with STOP written in the glass, has the DB on the top of it, was on my Model T roadster but I ain't gonna use it. If anyone needs it, let me know.

This is my '29 Dodge Bros. tail light on my Shovel.

The STOP is stamped out of 20ga sheetmetal, and is sandwiched between the lens and the ring. I wired the light so the tail lamp is on just in the bottom lens, and when you hit the brake, both the top and bottom lenses light up.
