To the rest of you folks from Chi area, how about it? if so, I'd gladly set it up. Since we're scattered, just need some confirmation so we can locate a central spot.

CM,
For 8/6 at 5 Star, is that welcome to all kinds or just Italian bikes?

I'm down for whatever. Would be cool regardless. I've hung out at Flat Iron on Milwaukee ave also. Good beer selection.

Worst case, if there's enough interest, I can maybe host a 6 Over viewing for y'all. Got a firepit and a huge cooler that can hold a ton of beer.

Gnarly and 883Rocket, might be a good way to help you make sure you get your bikes done with plenty of riding left in the season. :cheersmate:

Let's set a date and who ever can make it, cool.

Ken

CM
07-26-2012, 11:14 AM
All bikes are welcome. They just judge the Italian ones.

CM
07-26-2012, 11:15 AM
Into the 6 over thing as well even though I've already seen it. Cool to meet up with some other locals.

Gnarly

I'm down for the viewing...

Kcarvajal
07-26-2012, 11:57 AM
Let's see if we get more votes for the 6 over viewing.

I'm in Lombard, just a tad West from the Oakbrook mall. Mike (MRB) is about 5 mins away from me. See if it's feasible for you based on where you will be coming from, if we do this.

Of course, non-CC'ers are welcome.

Well that was awful. Walked around for an hour, laughed at the 20x20 jewelry booth, bought some stickers and left. I got there early too! And if your lookin for an iron head, that black one will probably be there next year too. He's had it up for 1500 for the past 2 years. Lowball him and he might take it.

Bandersnatch
02-03-2013, 5:05 PM
Yeah......it cost me like 37 bucks to go there......look around.......and leave.
Lil Al wasn't even there...........and he's from Chicago!

I saw them dudes that were at Harvest Run.
You know, the quiet ones.

On the plus side I got to stop by some dude's house who was wanting to trade for my car/ pan.

He had a couple SUPER NICE ironheads and a sweet shovelhead showbike.

He wanted to trade my car/pan project for his bike.......but I just don't wanna be into a cone shovel with a SOS title for that much money.

His garage was waaay better than that swap for sure.

Did anyone check out that show/swap in Sandwich 3 weeks ago?
The BIke show was probably the best one I've seen in a long time.

Bander,
I went to Wicked Wheels, but on Sunday. There was a silver/red metal flake bike that I really dug.

Man, next time, let me know if you're going to one of these shows. Would love to buy you a beer.

Probably next thing I will be going to is the Violation tour show at Lockdown on the 28th, then Walneck's swap in Woodstock, but that's not til April. (I highly recommend this one if none of you have ever been.)

bander, when you say shovel show bike, do you mean like brand fucking new stock lowrider? if so that dude has THE coolest shit and lives not 5 minutes away from me.

No it was actually some guy in Morris.
He had a couple really cool sportster restorations.

The showbike was like
A Paughco rigid frame.....6up 3out.
Like a 6 or 8 over DNA Springer
Fresh built clean 81 Shovel Motor and trans 10.5-1 pistons

He said he squeezed the fattest tire he could on there (Avon Venom 150)......

All new parts..........the thing was clean clean.

The thing is......I wouldn't get anywhere near 10grand for it if I sold it.
Nobody on here would dump 10grand on a special Construction Cone shovel.

I remember a dude was sellin his sweet slabside shovel with a stroker in it and it sat around for way long at only 6,500.

I'm out in Berwyn. Lived in Wicker Park for a number of years but it got bit fancy and COL went up. Needed a garage and more space so headed to suburbia. Hope to run into some of you guys around.

Whaddaya think? is the Walneck swap in Woodstock on 4/14 worth a 3 hr trip? I live in Central Illinois and was considering making the trip.

Not sure about a 3 hr trip. It is huge though. Lots of vendors and a ton of good shit last year.

I plan to go next week for sure. If anyone wants to meet up, pm me.

Lowpunk, I'm in Lombard. Let's plan a ride soon.

Weather permitting, I'm considering riding. I don't really need any large parts and if so, a friend's dad is going with a car.

Highwayhooligan, Harvest Run around end of summer (maybe?) But we're also planning a few rides here and there with decent miles. Hood Bush in Milwaukee on 7/27, Davenport late August, Rockerbox, Mods vs Rockers, etc. I know the HalfFast guys puts rides together too. They have a Wed night at the Clutch bar, Ogden and Grand.

Welcome to Chicago man!

Thanks, Ken. I'm enjoying the hell out of it so far. I heard a radio spot for Mod v. Rockers today. Sounds pretty interesting... the wife and I will probably check it out when it rolls around. I was considering going to the HalfFast bike night tonight. But, I'm sitting on the couch watching the Hawks instead.

While I'm here, does anybody have shop recommendations? I'm having an issue with the valve train on the front cylinder of my evo Sporty.

Man, i've been avoiding that route like the plague. How is it? I'm right in Berwyn and it would make the ride to the city super quick and easy but i don't really feel like getting shot! I take it almost daily in my truck but haven't mustered the balls to do it on my bike yet.

This new shop I work at won't allow me to bring stuff to work on.

here's a pic of my bike. This is just a cheap plastic sportster fender that I got for free. The fender i want mounted is similar, but steel.
