Sounds like relaxed hours, but the couch was placed in Bad Salzufflen at “Custombike”, Europes biggest custombike fair. With more than 30.000 visitors you can imagine that some of them dropped in at our booth – hundreds to be precise. But we admit, we had parked some real stoppers in front of our couch, so those flakeystuff- and fat-tire-tired eyes would see: here’s the place to give my tortured retina a rest. The black Flathead from 1940, a ’39 and a ’40 Knucklehead, the ‘Grasshopper’ Panhead and two more Flatheads, the red one from 1939 and our famous Snowracer kickstarted some good conversations and new friendships.
Not to forget the 3 motors we displayed as a reminder, that “Rusty Diamonds” the book on Uwe Ehinger’s trips into motorcycle historyÂ is available now.
