Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans. This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast. The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model. It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's. After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good. The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley! I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs. I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!! It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car! It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only. $1500.00 firm. email@example.com The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
It's the annual lighting of Candy Cane Lane Ceremony, except we preempt it with a lawn party and surf music (provided by the awesomeness of The Royal Rats), pot luck (bring anything, booze is never frowned upon, but your strawberry vodka laced ambrosia salad is fine too), and all around Christmas festivities!

We had no idea that Snoopy/Joe Motocross would strike such a chord with people, but we've had loads of great feedback. One of my favourite responses is from Bob Metz, in Minnesota.
It's been a while. After seeing Snoopy I just had to send a pic. Shortly after stuffing my 750 Triumph Trackmaster through the fence my daughter colored this picture! It was 1978. It has hung on the wall of my shop since. Until later, John Metz Sideburn 27 includes a feature written by Russ Gater of clothing brand TSPTR. Russ discusses the impact of the Peanuts on the morale of US troops in Vietnam, on equal rights for women and on the popularisation of motocross and minibike racing across the US. It's fascinating.
Read Harley R in the Isle of Man, loved the feature and wrote this...
Thanks Guys, that really was a great read! I found the Charlie Brown/ Joe Motocross piece particularly interesting as Peanuts was an integral part of my formative years and its increasing political awareness mirrored my own first steps into the big, bad world. I was too young to appreciate all the Vietnam/ WW1 parallels (living in the wrong country probably didnâ€™t help) but those increasingly cynical/ surreal cartoons, and my parentsâ€™ increasing dislike for what had once been a â€œfunâ€ daily strip, made a huge impact on me. Nearly fifty years later I can still remember every word from those comics â€“ I just have to see the first frame and my memory fills in the rest. Thanks again. Harley See for yourself what all the fuss is about BUY SIDEBURN 27. G
Not exactly a single event by any means, Taco Moto Tuesday is a weekly gathering of like minded riders who head out in search of tacos, beers, and oral stimulation (yeah, we talk to each other. Novel idea aye?). Nothing says you have to attend every week, come out when you can and join the group. One things for sure, Don will order a hamburger and everyone else will usually opt for the tacos... There's more Taco Moto Tuesday pictures coming from specific events within TMT, but this small collection of photos is picked at random.
follow @TacoMotoTuesday on IG for meet times and locations!
If you're going to ride 330 miles through the Taklaman Desert, known by the locals as the Desert of Death, without stopping for more than a pee and the odd snack, on a single speed, you might as well do it in a Dirt Quake T-shirt, right? Cheers Guy.

April 1st and 2nd, 2016 The Crick Out hosted by the Crick Boys out in the wasteland of Johnson Valley. Another serious DIY fun fest without charging for attendance, wristbands, or any corporate bullshit profiteering marketing agendas.
Sideburnâ€™s editor, Gary Inman, interviewed Michael Lock, the CEO of American Flat Track, about his plans for fixing pro flat track. The interview lasted nearly 90 minutes, and was way too long to fit in Sideburn 27, but what was left over was too good to leave on the shelf, so we decided to publish the full thing on our new website - www.sideburnmagazine.com. It will be of interest to anyone with a love of, or investment in, flat track.
