Huber had a rather unorthodox racing style....but it worked for him. He was voted "Most Popular Rider" by the racing community in 1946, and raced Harley-Davidsons most of his career. Huber won multiple 100 Mile national events, and could be a real-pain-in-the-ass to the Indian Factory Team. He lost his life racing a dusty track (low visibility) aged early 30s - sealing his legend in the sport of motorcycle dirt track racing.
I don't know the situation (since there's lot of pictures of women with motorcycles that don't really ride the bike they're photographed with) However, I just have a feeling this is her Sportster . . . she owns it . . . it's registered in her name and she rides the shit out of it? I'd like to tell her, "Hey, I really like your bike !"
Saturday May 19th, 2018 is the date for the ShovelHeads Run! Poker Run. This will be the 10th Anniversary of the first Shovelheads Run! in 2008. Sign-up for 2018 is 9:30am to 11am at Matty's Bar & Grille, 14460 W College Ave. Great bikes, great prizes, great people! Based in Milwaukee, WI.
Team photos . . . you don't see them as much anymore for some reason? Now, it's usually just the driver, maybe a flagman, and his car or bike. There's plenty of podium photos. If you've ever actually been a part of a race team - you know it takes many hands to be successful every week. The team photo is kinda going away for some reason? You don't see them (at least on-line) as much. This DRAGBIKE4246 took a team effort - and some of the best-in-the-business lined up for this photo to be recognized.
PS. (I know 2nd from left is Ron Dickey from Axtell), then Baisley, then Fitzmaurice?, and maybe we could ask Jeff Wiley who the others are???? He'd know.
The key to perfect wrinkle paint is "uniformity" - consistency. If applied too heavy, it wrinkles and leaves lines, and the wrinkles in the paint are larger in places. If applied too light(thin paint) it doesn't wrinkle at all, or appears rough. Temperature of the part(and room temp) is important. I've found about 60-70 degrees F works best. It dries a bit slower, and your wrinkle paint job will be more consistent and uniform. Application is very important. You don't "recoat" wrinkle paint. I give it a very light (stick coat) to give the surface some grip - let dry 10-15 mins., then apply a medium/heavy main coat of paint, careful to apply a uniform depth. You don't want any runs ! I try to apply the paint on the surfaces of the part YOU SEE WHEN IT'S ON THE BIKE in the best way possible. Cross your fingers.
Now that the paint has wrinkled and is completely dry, I spray a flat (or semi flat) coat of black over the top to even out any shiny spots, or imperfections. This is the step that really gives your black wrinkle job the professional appearance over wrinkle alone. Highlight with chrome, polished or spun aluminum(as above) accessories for contrast. Chrome socket-head screws with small OD stainless washers to mount the covers.
