<-------NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!------->
The inimitable Richard Correia will be bringing his Amazing 1925

This beautiful 4-cylinder beast finished the Motorcycle Cannonball Run
in 2012 with a Perfect Score!! That's 3,956 miles across the Nation,
without missing a single point!!
Now YOU can feast your eyes on this historic two-wheeler, up-close
and in the "flesh"!
oh.......and that's not ALL he's bringing! Stay Tuned.

Richard has been very generous with his offer to come all the way down
to Brooklyn from Massachusetts. Along with the beautiful Henderson DeLuxe,
he will be lending his stunning Harley Davidson JD to the show's line-up!!

Come check it out on Sunday, May 18th!

When was the last time you got down on your knees and really looked
at how the center-hub steering mechanism on a 1923 Ner-a-Car functions?

Huh?.......you HAVEN'T?!

Come to the show on Sunday, May 18th, and you'll have your first chance,
then!

An EXCELLENT Question, Mr. Hammerfist7.

If....after a full hour of gawking at the 1923 Ner-a-Car, you still
don't fully understand the workings of the center-hub steering......

..you will be served a double Espresso, paired-up with one of our on site
master-riders, and led through a dozen hot laps on the back yard Velodrome.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Excellent, England-Kev....Thanks for that!

So I guess you're already familiar with the other beautiful bike that
Wade is graciously lending to the show?

Just in case the Gold Star flat tracker is too racy for your blood, you can
come on Sunday, May 18th to see his 1951 Gold Star street bike!

I Really appreciate that you listed the show on your blog, Kevin!
Cheers!

The venue hosting this show (and where I work as the Chef), Brooklyn Bowl,
recently opened at the O2 Arena in London......

...so who knows? I may be enlisting your help again some day, in order to launch; Split'n Lanes & Dodgin' Gutters London!!

I have enjoyed your photos for Years on this site...so Thanks for that too.
I did have the pleasure of visiting the Kempton Bike Jumble several
years ago, and wished, at the time, that I had had access to a shipping container!

Thanks again.

Thank Goodness Clark Gable wasn't the only person to own a
Harley Davidson RL Forty-Five inch flat head, with total-loss oiling system.....

........Kevin Lobasso has one too. And he's planning to ride his 1932 version in to Brooklyn and show
it on Sunday, May 18th!

Legendary!

* We interrupt this fascinating "dialogue" about Vincent motorcycles, to
make the following announcement:

We are currently seeking Teens-Era motorcycles for the show.

No.....of course you don't have one of these in your garage.....I don't either.
But that old timer friend of your dad's, who know's that one dude in ______ has one. Please contact him and tell him about this event!

Thank you.
You may proceed with your Vincent thoughts & comments.

Ride to Brooklyn, NYC on Sunday, May 18th,
and scope-out John Romano's fabulous 1953 Vincent Black Shadow Series C.

This bike is immaculate, & remains unmolested by the touch of "creative" young "builder's" claws.




Hope to see you there!
