2010 Moto Melee, Part 2
Here are some random shots of bikes on the 2010 Moto Melee.
Mat Gil’s BSA. Note his work on the bike: tail section, tank, linkages, fairing, panniers, etc.
Mike broke the Bultaco Curse, being the first rider to finish a Melee on one. What’s more, he rode it down from Oregon to start the weekend!
I like the shadows. See Melee Part 1 for more info.
Craig Howell’s BMW
On Hwy 1
Les’s Guzzi Falcone.
The bar in the Victorian Hotel in Ferndale. Ceiling fans rotate from a geared-down electric motor.
Terry’s 1947 Ariel 350, and Frank’s Commando.
A nice view of a bay just north of Jenner. The Excelsior ran out of gas coming down a long hill, and I sat for 45 minutes waiting for a chase truck or Melee rider to come by. When nobody passed, I decided to push the bike to the top of this hill, hoping to coast down into Jenner for fuel. Of course I couldn’t see that the hill continued to climb around the corner… It took about 30 minutes to push about 1/4 mile up the steep hill, while cars and trucks zoomed past. Near the top, eventually a car stopped and offered to grab me some gas from town. George Shoblo arrived too, and gave me a quart from his tank. While pushing up the hill, several different guys rode past on modern Harleys, none stopped or offered help. thanks guys.
