THE LINCOLN HEIGHTS/EL SERENO CONNECTION

I've been buying parts from a little shop in the Lincoln Heights area for the past few years called B&B Harley parts.Owned buy a cat named Manuel who's been building scoots in the area for years.Well,after We started talking about some bikes from the area that I remembered back around 20 years ago or so. turns out He built em'!He let look through a box of old pics.
I came across some pics that really blew my mind and took Me back.
He let take some pics to scan.these are few of the painting/molding pics.

EasyRider weekend








Attended the show this weekend.Not the greatest show in the world,but it was still a good time spending the day with My Pop's and Son and some good friends.
Figured I'd put the bike in the show since it was still somewhat fresh.
My two future riding Buddies. My Son and My Godson
It was a cool surprise to see Howard,aka,"THE TREE"there. Growing up,I would hear stories about this dude named Tree,from my buddy Walter's Dad and his friends.About this big guy who they used to ride with that was able to ride the longest,stretched out choppers with drag bars,one handed and still manage to jockey shift while making u turns.These stories made this  guy seem like some mystic figure to Me.
I finally had to the chance to meet Howard a few years ago when my buddy Ross and Howard were building his latest chopper,yet another version of 'THE TREE".We spent the day bullshitting,talking choppers and eating burgers.By the end of the day it was like I'd know him forever.A big dude with a big heart!
Howards bike from the seventies,which Ross and Howard also built together.featured in Easyriders twice I believe.
