Knuckleheads of David Mann Chopper Fest 2012


The David Mann Chopper Fest in Ventura, California always has a good turn out of quality chops, bobs, restos and whatever else you wanna call custom motorcycles. This year was no different and there was no shortage of old pans, knucks and flatheads. I shot a couple hundred photos so I'm gonna break it up into digestable chunks. Today's feature is all about the knuckleheads...

That blood-red bike in pics 11-12 looks familiar. Is that a Max Schaaf bike? Pure sexy.

I grew up skimming my Dads Easyriders, and the David Mann paintings are all I can really remember. They defined "bikers" to me. They gave me a healthy lust to own a Shovel.
I like the backend on that softtail in the background in #s 9&11!

Yeah chopman69 I know exactly what you mean, street vibration has gone downhill and sad too say the last few years of easy riders show has too, seems to be bagger shows. Nice no doubt but definitely doesn't do it for me like old iron.
