I´ve discovered this forum because a portuguese friend wrote a post in another spanish biker forum.
Perhaps my english isn't very good, but I want to give you thanks for remember "the spirit of glory days", when you only needed desires to enjoy with friends. Tech?, what´s tech?
Saludos.

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.
I've got 100+ antique cameras :): even have the only stereo camera made for 828 film (was called Bolta size in europe) think I might have a Kodak Bantam around in a box someplace? will look for it. ~~~~~~~~

You MAYBE can get 828 film all spooled up from Film for Classics

EDIT: Oh OH! just checked... He processes 828 but I don't see it listed for sale any more He used to sell all sorts of sizes I don't see, like 122...maybe call and ask him? he might do it if you supply the spools?

I've bought some obscure sizes from him to shoot in early roll film cameras, he's good.

Once again Thanks for the pics Mr. Webber!

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

WOW! Gota love it. Thanks for all the shots!

You can be a really smart person but unless your lucky enough to have a parent or brother, sister or friend whose into bikes your likely not to realize the potential benefit. For anyone reading this site there’s no need to spell out the benefit.

My Dad around 1929. Some of my earliest memories are stories of my him pulling ice skaters behind his Harley.

Ice skating behind motorcycle.

We did this in the 50's on a lake that was on a friends property. Ice was thick enough to ride on. I would tow skaters by letting them hang on to my rear "bumper" on my 1950 74ci bike. This was fine until the wise guys would shove the bike sideways and dump me. I was concerned about breaking through the ice when the bike crashed. Lake only 20 foot depth, but that would have been a hassle to retrieve motorcycle. Also only had street tire tread. Warren

There are always a couple of wise guys, aren't there?

But when the shoe is on the other foot, wear it, as they say.

Your pictures & narrative are a great treasure. Thanks for sharing!

this is my buddy Don O'Brien, circa late 1950's. He's wearing a shit eating grin because of his brand new bike, 950 lbs., vacuum tube communication gear, and kick starter. He and his buddy John were real addicts, sounds like they spent as much time riding for fun as riding for work.

Just a note to say a couple of things.
1. We are over 125,000 views on this thread. Not only is this an all time high, but nothing else even comes close.
2. I do hope this does in some way bring out even more of those old photos that are buried away in the attic or closet somewhere...
3. Thanks to all of those who have contributed to this thread, it certainly helped me put our current adventure rider proclivities into perspective.
4. Thank you also to Wes Weber and his Dad for taking us all back to yesterdays adventure riders...
5. this also bumps this thread back onto page 1 where it belongs

I see you are from Seattle. I retired to Prescott, AZ from Seattle last year. Am I glad! How are you keeping dry and warm in Seattle this year?

Well since I'm a computer geek and a native seattle-ite I've got a double dose of web-itice, so I'm used to it... That and after spending time in the desert, the lack of green tends to make every day look the same as all the other days after a while. Which isn't all that bad but for me the lack of seasonal differentiation would get old after a while...

Where I live in Prescott, AZ there are lots of seasonal differences. Summers are 75 and clear and sunny. Winters are 30 degrees and clear and sunny.

Come visit sometime - I'll show you some great biking roads!

That sounds really inviting... Much better than the desert that I encountered... I may just have to take you up on your offer on our next trip...

Those pics went around the world, Wes. :o)
And they definately been the reason I registered ADVriders.

Great stuff!

I love to ride my VN on Mountain Trails, no idea why people go out to buy themselves a 1150GS.

Thats how a VN rear tire usually looks like after such kinda trip:



:o)

The original post in this thread is so great.


It's like an Advrider post from the past. Reminds me of Turkish and Jean-Luc on one of their crazy adventures, only more so because these guys were on huge hunks of primitive iron.
