Wheels Through Time Museum

   It is no secret that Wheels Through Time is one of my top favorite places to visit. We are very lucky to live so close. I am always over whelmed by the large amount of mechanical history to take in. And while we visit I am usually unsuccessfully trying to memorize little details that separate different years and models. Or just how this lever or frame section, front end is constructed. I could spend 8hrs there and still not feel like I have taken enough in or spent enough time with out rushing through it.

  Now let me say being there with my 20 month old son who is completely into bikes and cars (especially old or custom ones, some how he knows they are better...) made it an even crazier experience. Here are just a few pictures of the few bikes I shot. I don't know why I didn't think to shoot any of the Peirce Arrows, Crocker's,  Harley JD hill climb bikes or countless other bikes I really drool over. Oh right it was pretty crazy with the little guy. Liz barley got to take in any thing since she spent most of her time wrangling the boy so I could see some things, and have some time to catch up with Matt. I really have to thank her for that. We all had a great time and I can't wait for a proper visit on two wheels this summer!

   If you have any excuse to be in the area I highly suggest you make a stop here and check out the museum. Usually they are firing off bikes and riding them down the isle. The tours are really hands on and informative. If a bike looks like it runs then it most likely does. These bikes are not just for show some still get entered in vintage races and when they are restored they are made to run and operate too. Make note of the black marks from doing burn outs and brake skids on vintage rubber while you are walking past the chopper grave yard!

We have taken a picture with this hill climber every time we have come with Wayland. This is the second one. Sadly it didn't come out great.

 Snack time by the creek.

 Here is a Ironhead based XR that was done up for Evil Knievel!

 A bit of history...

Matt happens to be an invited builder for the Born Free show. This is the Indian he is building for the show. This thing is going to own so hard! I can't wait to see it done!

 These guys are awesome. I'm glad they seemed to get along well!

What a great family outing!

6" Hourglass Window Bars (On a customers bike)

We recently received a few more shots of the bike from the last post. I am glad to post more photos of this cool little bike and I am proud to have my bars directing it down the roads and streets of France. Have a look!

6" Hourglass Bars

Here is a cool little bike one of my customers in France just finished. It has our signature 6" Hourglass handle bars on it. It is a neat little scoot. I can't wait to have a few more shots of it to share.

An old Friends Bike.

Here it is! Another one of those bikes! We are looking forward to an extremely warm week of riding.  It should be a nice break from all those wet, cold, and down right freezing days we have ridden.

Putting On The Winter Miles.

Boy am I ready for weekend runs, chopper camping and bonfires. The weather is pretty mild here in Asheville, N.C. compared to the New England winters I am used to. I have a tendency to ride all I can, so I have put on a good amount of miles this winter. Here are a few shots I have collected over the course of the winter. If you happen to be stuck in a cold and snowy place waiting for the roads to clear, get your scoot ready! Full on riding season is right around the corner!

6" Hourglass Window Bars

We are still cranking out our signature Deep Six Cycles HourGlass window bars. We have some 6" rise bars in stock. Snatch them up while they are on sale! Or if there is something else you might want us to make for you send us an email and we can discuss what it will take.
