Good stuff John.

Colma... the City of Souls. Did you hit the one with the historical Cowboys and explorers in it?
Can't remember who it was... but I checked it a couple decades ago.


our club Historian, Brian, puts on a pretty wonderful Colma tour:





think one of the NS400R pics was snapped near the Emperor Norton headstone ...

Moving house: 139-year-old building moved six blocks in San Francisco, 02/21/2021



so, the house was 22 years old when the SFMC had its first club meeting, 24 years old during the 1906 earthquake, and 66 years old when the Chief in the pic was made ...

you can catch a brief glimpse of the Kalle and the Indian in the vid at 1:47 ...

check out SFMC member Kalle, he started his latest Indian project today, a pre-war 1939 hardtail Chief with 18” wheels and a front disk brake:

pretty sure he welded up the pipes, himself, too ...

yes, he’s a rider, for sure.

fun to see it start right up ... I’ll have to ask him if he knows how long it’s been since it last ran/how long it had been sitting ... he does ride them, he’s talking about a Baja run for one of his vintage Indians someday soon, maybe.

Have heard that at one point the California Motor Company had a factory in San Francisco at 18th Street and Folsom, where the PG&E yard is now ... the exhibition has quite a collection of old motorcycles, good pics of which you can see at the link above.

we had a group ride over this evening to see it, and they said it was awesome. Our club Historian, Brian, helped the folks who put the exhibition together with some of our club pics and our archive ...
