Henderson motorcycles

I am a history nut and a motorcycle nut so I should know this stuff.

“The Streamline was fast – capable of a genuine 100 mph (160 km/h), and advanced for its time, with such features as leading-link forks and an illuminated speedometer built into the fuel tank.

The Streamline model was produced from 1929 until 1931, and sold for $435”

Check the Henderson info here at Wikipedia plus pics.

Here is the Streamline.  Wild for it’s time in 1929.

I wish I had the opportunity to ride one of these old time cycles.  What a thrill!!

Sr vs Jr—Vote & Bid: The Cadillac CTS motorcycles and The Final Numbers

Vote!!  Sr or Jr?

and then bid to win the bike and help the charity and help Cure Duchenne.

UPDATE:  The voting and the auction has ended.

Who won??

Aside from Daddy’s constant bad mouthing of his son which confuses the hell out of me…….

Both were nice bikes just one of them was way way nicer.

Update late August:

But why would a father be so insane as to not only bad mouth his own son on national television, but to misrepresent what he says and does.  Such as, he fired Paul Jr.  Everyone heard him and we saw it on TV and in reruns.  Then Paul Sr starts saying ON TV that Jr quit.  WTF dude??  And saying that Paul Jr will build the Cadillac bike “out of his ass”.  Well if the winning bike was built out of Jr’s ass, where was OCC‘s bike built.  Someone on Facebook posted that the vote was 95% Jr to 5% Sr, but last I saw it was like 2-1.

Enough of that, because I kind of like Sr although he tires me greatly.  That bi-polar shit gets old fast.  I’m just glad he is not my father.  But Paul Sr got pwned by Paul Jr and this guy says Discovery Channel shut the vote down to save embarrassment of their ‘star’ on the American Chopper series.  he says the vote was 96% Paul Jr when they shut the voting down and I do know the Discovery Channel has NEVER issued the results of the voting.   I dunno…

My vote?  Paul Jr, easy choice, and thx @whereispauljr.  I own a Cadillac CTS and PJD’s bike captures it perfectlySr’s bike is nice, but Jr kicked his ass.

I am lousy at hints…..

Update September 19th:

Tonight on American Chopper they finally let the cat out of the bag on the Cadillac bike builds.

It seems like we were bidding on which bike we thought should win at least a year ago.

Tonight Mikey brought his Apple laptop into PJD, brought up the Discovery Channel website and announced the winner of the public vote on which Caddillac bike won…..Sr or Jr (??)

Without any drama, the PJD (Jr’s) bike was the winner.

The vote was something like 244,000 to 9,000.

No, I’m serious.  No joke.  That was the final vote rounded down a bit.

So now I know why Discovery took the whole thing off their site and OCC (Sr) hasn’t said a word about it for months.

It is really kind of humiliating.  I mean, Jr’s bike was the best but that kind of ass whooping really has more to do with how the public is viewing Sr and his behavior toward Jr and Mikey especially the whole firing shit.

Today the Discovery Channel website put the vote & bid page backup including their final vote results, a little higher  than the numbers Mikey shared on the show.

Anyway, congratulations @whereispauljr & PJD folks, and nice build OCC staff.  It was a nice bike.  They were both nice bikes and I am glad to see that a good sum of money was raised for Cure Duchenne

Update September 23rd:

You can enter to win a CTS-V here.

Motorcycles in Captain America

Captain America had a huge opening weekend earlier in the summer.

But who cares about the movie or even about the old comic book?  What we care about is the motorcycles, especially the Captain America bike!

And of course, Captain America drives a Harley-Davidson

In this video Harley-Davidson shares the proces that went into designing the bike for Captain America the movie..

Nice.  Thx @mybestnews and @youtube
