The first time I went to Bike Week we saw this at the track, at the beach and on Main Street. It was pulling a trailer , nothing in the trailer ,but , it added to the effect , I didn't know who Ron Finch was then. But I could tell the guy was a metal master and had a vivid imagination.



Built to ride.

Someday I'll get around to scanning my old pics.

Re-reading this first post, I think you could probably make a variation of this image

with, "Chopper Riders, what the fuck happened?"

Ron Finch is like the Dr. Seuss of the chopper world. He's a heck of an artist, nobody builds stuff like he does. I like it.
