Bill Sterner's DOHC CB750 Chopper "the Lady"

A multiple award winning example of a 1970's style chop. My friend Bill has had "the Lady" since the 70's and the bike has seen a few facelifts over the years. Bill & I both attend the World Honda Chopper Meet every year at the Rider's Roost Motorcycle campground in NC. Bill, who goes by the nickname Lady Dr, is a true HCMF!

Homebrew Side Mount Bracket

I made this side axle mount Model A tail light bracket for a member of the forum. Tools used: jigsaw, hand files, drill, bench grinder and mig welder. I then powdercoated it gloss black and added the tail light and the plate frame....walla!

Adam Roarke (1937-1996): One of my favorite movie Outlaw Bikers from the 60's biker flicks. Roarke starred in a series of these movies from the genre such as Helles Belles, the Savage Seven, Hells Angels on Wheels & Nam's Angels (also known as The Losers), . He also appeared in many TV programs from my childhood, such as the Six Million Dollar Man & Chips, as well as some 'before my time' TV shows like the Mod Squad and Star Trek. Adam also acted in many other genres of movies like 1972's horrible horror flick "Frogs", 1974's car chase picture "Dirty Mary Crazy Larry" w/Peter Fonda, and a starring role in 1980's "The Stunt Man". I like him best in the B grade biker flicks however, where his roles are usually leader of the "outlaw" biker gang, which he portrays so well. My favorites w/Roarke are Helles Belles and Hells Angels on Wheels -w/Jack Nicholson & Sonny Barger.
