I didn't see any link in the OP either, but a facebook link showed up when I hit the quote button. Couldn't get the link to work the first few times I tried it however. Facebook said, "Something went wrong" I eventually got it to work. If you can see the above link in my reply, try it.

Thanks for sharing that. Nice too see all that old iron; too bad most of it was eventually discarded in favor newer, bigger, and better.

Sure they know. But what they may not know is that the WWII guys stole the persona and the name "Hell's Angels" from Howard Hughes' WW I epic film of the same name that came out in 1930.

I was 14 in 55, and traded a 37 Chevy, a 12 ga, Winchester single shot and $20 for my first Harley. A 42 "45" flat head. Living in a small town I was the only one who had one. Mine had the big buddy seat that was great for taking girls for rides. Married one of them and we celebrated our 59th wedding anniversary this year. Wish I had kept that one along with the black and white Crown Victoria I bought a few years later. Hind sight. LOL

Year looks to be late 1955 except for the one scene that I swear shows the ***-end of a blue 1959 Pontiac.

Fun watch tho'.

Cool video! Have to wonder how many of those bikes and cars and trucks survive today?
