First Thursday at Dulono's - End of an Era

In case you haven't heard, Dulono's Pizza announced the closing of its uptown location on July 9th (Facebook post).  Dulono's was the the home of the biggest monthly bike night in the Twin Cities for many, many years.  The first time I attended was July 2010 (original blog post).  I would typically attend multiple times per year but more recently I spent my First Thursdays at the uptown VFW (which no longer has a bike night) and Heavy Thursdays at The Joint/Cabooze.

Here are a few photos from July 2010 in full glorious color (longtime followers of G&C will remember I used to only post black-and-white photos).

Recognize some of these bikes and want to see lots more?  Here's a link to all of my blog posts from First Thursdays at Dulono's Pizza:

I don't know if a new location will ever emerge to take Dulono's place and host a bike night of this size.  The Joint/Cabooze has Heavy Thursdays and I'm sure lots of other locations would LOVE to have the crowd show up that used to attend at Dulono's.  Maybe people will still show up at the old location anyway.  I have no idea.

Rest assured, there are lots of other bike nights around the Twin Cities but they tend to be smaller and more specialized.  Here are just a few.
What I'll miss most about bike night at Dulono's was the HUGE crowd filling multiple parking lots and side streets and the wide diversity of bikes from Harleys to vintage to cafe racers to rat bikes to sport bikes and everything in between.  The pizza was good too.

Fridays Are For Racin'

One major update for Strange Days 9, is that the flat track racing will ONLY take place on Friday night, July 12th 2019.  This should make everyone else that's not looking to compete, and just have a good old time happy!  Saturday July 13th will be all about the chopper show and old bikes that fill the grounds each year; as well as the amazing live tunes that will be cranking all day and night.  (More on that stellar music lineup coming soon!)  So get your hot shoes ready for Friday, and set your barefoot party feet free on Saturday!
Stay tuned!

Pipe Diameter

These pipes are small diameter 1 1/2".... I guess back in the day, the factory felt the K Model 750cc side valves worked best with these smaller diameter headers?  Similar sized to the ports, etc.  I always like the big, free flowing straight pipes, but so far, this thing seems extra responsive and hopefully it will help bring back some low end to this thing . . ?  Factory stock early Sportster muffler.  It's got a set of -60R KR heads on it, and I resleeved the cylinders, new valves, guides, etc.  The Delorto PHM38 is my new carb-of-choice (if you don't want to run an M53 Linkert).  I haven't really rode it around yet, so I'm sure I'll have some tuning issues coming up.  Hopefully not - is always nice !  I added my set of -60 aluminum wheels (I'd been saving for who know what?) and figured I may as well start using some of this stuff.... One thing is for sure, H-D made some pretty neat bikes back with the Ks and early Sportsters.  Some of the neatest lookin' if done right.
