April Vintage Bike OC Meet
1936 Husqvarna 40SV

Huntington Beach, Calif. - According to my sources it was a great meet. Many thanks to Brian Tinkler plus Debbie and Tom Hopkins for taking over the duties and running the meet while I off volunteering for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. I'm sorry to have missed the meet. 97 people showed up and we had some very rare and interesting bikes.

Brian Tink Tinkler is an excellent photographer and shot all the photos for this month's gallery. Plus edited them and delivered them to me over night. Visit his site at
