THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Family Photo Vault - Part IV


It's been a while since I've posted any old pics of my pops and his motorcycle days from the early 70's. This one was his prized possession. From what he can remember it was a Yamaha 360? or 350? I'm not sure. Either a 71 or 72. Real specific, not that you care anyways. Love the "ape-hanger" style handlebars and check out that rad retro helmet (well probably modern back then), with the bubble face shield. Not sure why, but it seems that he favored riding in nice loafers instead of leather boots... Always keeping it classy. Beautiful bike, wish I had one now.
