Craig.. 828 film hard to find. A couple places have it but you would need to do your own processing. It is 35mm film with out the spocket holes. Warren

Re: Book in the works

Hey all-

There have been so many requests for a book that we're gonna try to do it. I'll post here when we get some idea of how long it'll take. I'll also post information regarding the book on our website, www.rallytwin.com.

Thanks everybody for the additional stories and pics of people that influenced your riding lifestyle!
Wes,

Glad to hear your your proceeding with the idea about a possible book. I attached this thread to an e-mail to Bill Johnson in the archives department at Harley-Davidson. He may be a good resorce as you proceed with the book.

Any chance you and Warren comming down to the rally in Ouray. I know a bunch of nut cases that would enjoy meeting you guys. Also would be great to meet any of the other "Orginal Adventure Riders".

Thanks! I was just doing a little research on how guys are taking 35mm film and somehow respooling it to use as 828. Thanks for the warning. Might not be worth the trouble, I suppose.

the real trick would be finding/modifying your reels and tanks to process the stuff - wouldn't be able to wind the narrower film onto one for 35mm

It is still same width as 35mm, but because of no sprocket holes more of the film was usable for image. Warren

didn't know that ... in that case, wouldn't it be possible to wind up some bulk-roll 35-mm film into the camera? It would just result in a negative where the edges would be unusable because of the sprocket holes ... (?)

Useable, but remember to "crop" scene in view finder as you lose about 2mm from top and bottom. Warren

Great pics.

Really humbles you, knowing that those before you did what they did without half of what we have today.

Does anyone know why some pics don't download?? The last 15 pics that were posted just show up as red X's and dont' open into a picture.
Any one having this problem, right mouse click on red X and then click "show picture" Warren

You might consider t-shirts, too. Maybe with the picture on the front, and your web-site info on the back. I'd love to have one of that panhead jump!

If you're thinking about it, and need a resource, I know there's a place called cafepress.com that does on-demand printing for a number of small web-site operators.
A couple hours after I posted that message about t-shirts, a buddy of mine showed up at my door with a present for me: a t-shirt with the picture of Kenny Erie's panhead jump printed on the front!

My buddy said he used a Wal-Mart iron-on transfer kit. The image is reversed, and a little washed-out looking, and it probably won't survive any more than two or three washings, but for now I'm laying claim to having the first-ever Kenny Erie fan-club t-shirt!
