VERY NICE. Probably shot just prior to the dawning of the Golden Age of Choppers. Only saw one pair of ape hangers. Thanks for sharing that.

That was interesting. Did you notice the red ragtop pulling out of it's parking spot and not looking for the motorcycles? And the shot of the cop writing a ticket? The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Cool video from the past. I was reminded of growing up in 50's. Wanted one of those brim hats guys used to wear when I was about 7, but Dad wouldn't get it for me. Loved the bikes. Maybe that's why I bought a Heritage (nostalgia).

Looking at those old Harley's, always knew the seats sat high up but never realized exactly how much play and how much give they had
