PISMO/T.R.O.G. BOUND

We loaded up ol' white Wednesday morning to get on the road toward California.  We were headed to the races, The Race of Gentlemen, to be exact, at Pismo Beach.

Jeremiah had been really excited to be participating.  He had been working on the Bumblebee all week getting her race ready.

Day 1: Wednesday
 
The kids couldn't wait to get out of town.  They were wrestling and playing in the backseat.  
Before getting to our destination, we made a few stops at some cool new shops that opened up not too long ago.  Here we are at our good friend Chase's new shop HWY in Los Angeles.
We made it to Pismo Beach, ate some chowder at the Splash Café and walked on the pier.  The kids were interested in the fishermen at the end of the pier, who told us they have caught different types of sharks.

Day 2-3: Beach and Campground Scenes
Jonas really tried to catch something.  He would prepare his fishing pole in the morning, talk all day about fishing.  He would stand out there, waiting patiently for a fish to bite, but unfortunately nothing was interested.  He tried and tried, every day that I took them out there.  Maybe next time.

Race Day: Saturday
The weather had been perfect the previous day, but turned over night.  It was foggy and rainy from the start. The tide was high, which made it tricky for the event planners, racers and spectators.  It did not matter in the end, as everyone was there to have a good time and make the most of it.  We walked around where all of the bikes and cars were parked, and everyone looked in good spirits. 
The kids and I waited around in the truck, but as we saw them getting ready we caught up to where Jeremiah was waiting.  Everyone had been standing outside, so everyone was getting sprinkled on, unless you had an umbrella.  It was a bit hectic waiting to see what was going on, but the kids were good and patient.  I just quieted them down with junk food and ice cream once we found a spot.
We were able to see a few of the races, but most importantly they saw their dad racing against a beautiful backdrop, the ocean on a cloudy day, along with some of his friends, a memory to keep for sure.

Chicken coop finds 1940 Knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead


 I never thought the day would come when I would unearth not 1 but 2 old knuckleheads that have been sitting since the early 1960's.. It feels like a dream from the moment I got a call on the shop phone "Hi Jeremiah can you get my 1915 Indian running"? I responded I am sure I can I can make anything run, I would love to have the opportunity. "ok sounds good I also have 2 other bikes you may be interested in looking at a 1940 knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead.

I respond oh really whats the story on them? "They were my fathers and he had them a very long time" ok I ask can I come see them? "Of course here is the address" At this point I think someone is playing a big joke on me I jump in my old truck. 

The rest is history I meet David and the story begins, my life changes I am now a proud owner of an old 1940 EL knucklehead that has sat for 50 years and has the coolest story which will come soon.

It gets even better I get to restore Davids untouched all 1947 Knucklehead that was his fathers. It hasn't been touched since 1962... I got her running after 50 years OLD HARLEYS never die. STAY TUNED more to come as well as some first time run videos!!

PEace Love and HAppines and old Harleys
