The dates are set! The Lowbrow Getdown is taking place Friday, July 13th through Sunday, July 15th, 2018.
Once again, Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in Garrettsville, Ohio will be 'HOME' for the weekend!
Though every Lowbrow Getdown has been held at 'the ledges', no two Getdowns have ever been the same, and this year will be no exception. Whether you're heading out by yourself to meet and hang with a bunch of like-minded individuals, or coming out with a caravan of your closest friends, good times are sure to be had by all.
If you've never been to the Getdown, and don't know what to expect, let's just say 'party' sums it up. This is NOT a bike show, with vendors or organized activities. It is a party in the woods with motorcycles, drinks, food, naps, swimming, campfires and friends! The swimming in the spring-fed quarry is sure to cure your hangover the next morning! Don't forget your floaty..
Camping at the quarry is $20 per night, payable to the campground at the gate.
** You may want to start thinking now about what you're going to do to win Best Campsite at the Lowbrow Getdown! There will be killer prizes awarded to camp sites who help add to the experience for everyone. More details on that to follow!

"When it's time to crash, make sure your tent feels like a cozy home to get a good night sleep before another day pounding the pavement. When a full heavy big sleeping bag is overkill, the Alpha Blanket is perfect to keep you warm and cozy on the chilly nights. With snaps at all corners you can even wrap it around you, or snap yourself up like a taco.
Made with our engineered Synthetic down, it has great puffy loft, and dries much quicker then down in case it ever gets wet. It also compresses down nice and tight just like down and unlike other synthetic sleeping bags or blankets."- Mike Fischer at Abel Brown

The early primary chain adjusters didn't have the "nylon shoe" on the adjuster pad...it just had this soft metal pad, permanently attached. The pad wore just a tiny bit(where the chain grooves started to show) and you didn't want to run your chain over tight.. The face of the adjuster was a bit narrower to fit a KR(XLCH type) tin primary cover. The clutch basket was narrower, so the shoe had to be a bit narrower too. I've found those nylon pads aren't always the best since the retainers often come loose, and the nylon shavings from the pad can clog your countershaft needle bearing oiler.
Full Moon Cycle in Dubuque, Iowa. I stopped for a quick visit one year on my way to the Meltdown Drags in Byron, Illinois. My chopper was packed ! Still runnin' that old, vintage square air cleaner. PS. I'm not in this photo...I'm better lookin' than these two blokes...
Hartman's mill. I went thru this ripper years ago - and it still runs pretty good. You do your best, try not to skip steps or cut corners...and sometimes you get lucky. He runs 2 carbs on everything - and he's good at it. Tuning, jetting - he makes it work. This bike is insane with details !
