    Hi Scott, Thanks for the memories. Especially the one relating to Bridgehampton and Watkins Glen. I was there at the same time. We might have even seen and admired each others cars. I will have to bring the Mustang by the office one day. Stay well and maintain the conviction you have cultivated over your many years.
    Richard T from the office


    Thanks Rich. Us car guys have a special passion, just like bikers.

  4. The Old Daze Says:

    Yeah, thanks for the memories too. I used to a be reader in the old ‘peas’ days. The only American bike magazine I read and felt affinity with.

    Tell me, I was just trying to explain to some young guy what happened in the dark days of H-D when they went around busting independent dealers and I remembered the old family business which looked more like a Harley museum and how the MoCo made them strip all the memorabilia off …

    Do you remember the name of the place, and is there a copy of that article? Are they out of business now?

    Hey Genghis…been too long since I read your stuff. Keep pumping it out! The whole “subculture” label thing is a little lost on me but no-one ever asked me to go to a MENSA meeting so I guess that just makes me average LoL. Was never into labels anyways; seems to me that was something other people used to describe anyone different than “them”!
    BTW, tell Old Daze that it was Bill’s Cycle in Pennsylvania that got the procto-job from the MoCo. Still makes me cry to think about.

    Piss Peas Forever!


      Hey Mike, thanks for the comment. Mabel has a swingarm that was gotten from Bill’s Cycle. David Snow once did an article about Bill’s.

        Yeah it was Snow’s piece in the old IH that clued me in to what happened to Bill. I miss reading Snow, Yourself and Noyes. Found you here, Snow is here too once in awhile I seem to recall too. Does anyone know what happened to Noyes? Inquiring minds want to know LoL.

    Have anything digital on Vol 17 no 2 “Little Sister?”


      Jeff, good to hear from you. Still have your XLCH? I have good memories of the photoshoot on Henry Street. Unfortumately, I don’t have anything digital on “Little Sister.”

        no i dont have her anymore..
        i got tired of looking like “grape-ape” on her…..needed something bigger,… and i never liked electric start ‘anything’…so got a hold of a 81 shovel rigid frame basket, got it running and road it around for awhile without a seat or rear fender…..i drove it to psyco-cycles on rivington to get a fender….indian larry laughed, he thought that was badass…..
        i just realized that if i hit the tire, i would have a tread mark tattoo and perhaps affect the gene pool, so thought it best to get a fender and a seat. I am still recovering from riding that rigid on the cross-bronx xpressway back in the day… one time, i ended up on the sawmill surrounded by bmw , mercedes, etc., ( fancy cars) , traffic was thick, traffic suddenly thinned so i thought i could open r up….when my side mounted license plate taillight broke off.,,, bike shorted out and i coasted over into shoulder …when i opened my tool pouch under the front of the frame, all my tools were gone,…..i knew then why the traffic thinned…, i pushed the bike to Pete’s tavern in Elmsford and got a guiness…
        my brother has her now in kansas city

        Hey Jeff, thanks for that story, man. Hope all is well.

      • Jeff Says:

        Same to you,…just a thought,..but ever thought of having a website with all of the past Iron Horse mags?

  10. Jeff Says:

    did you get the photo I sent in a reply email?…I could post it here but can’t seem to past it…

  11. TN Mike Says:

    Genghis, Got any idea what Flynch is up to lately? The Horse just hasn’t been the same sine he isn’t writing articles.
