Suzuki in 1909 were a loom manufacturer, making thread weaving type machinery. Is the oldest enduro the "Sandy Lane" enduro? McGraths first ride was a Kawasaki, but he spent a good deal of the '90's on CR's. :devil: '71 GT750 had two cables at the perch. I can't recall any artwork of a blue Panhead in EasyRiders mag', how long ago are we talking about here? I don't have any early issues anymore, oldest would be early 1980's :awww: Don't know the answers to the rest of the ??? :thumbsup:

Guggenheim. Honda Cub and/or variations? Don Vesco; was it the twin KZ?1300 Turbo powered streamliner? First motorcycle should be Daimler, but possibly steam powered DeDion could qualify, I will say Daimler. "One Blue Panhead out of easy rider mag has a what riding it? somebody guess!!!!" I dunno, a rat, a naked dude, Miraculous Mutha, (remember her?). New? What sort of "pie" was constantly referred to in old Easyriders mag's? New? What is the name of the magazine closely related to Easyriders, that came out in about '78-'79, and became more focussed on 'old school' choppers, as Easyriders went more towards the Arlen Ness type stuff? New? What is the name of the mag' that featured crap (trailer queens) that even Easyriders didn't want in their mag'? All the mag's went through big changes in direction in the mid'-late '90's. :thumbsup:

The Germans built the first motorcycle.
Don Vesco did not pilot a kz1300 on his record they filmed on the second o.a.s. it was a two stroke...
One Blue Panhead had a skeliton riding it, shooting the finger. reminds me of Jerry Garcia.
As for as the pie refered to it could have been lemon.
Back to the unanswered questions?????
The isle of mann has a lot of corners long wide open sections and a lot of obsticals, it could be the oldest race on the planet earth, how many deaths have ac
cured in this race???
Honda built a lot of monkey bikes, Back in 1961 there is a cz100 in one of my books, it has solid wheels, a c110 looking tank, a z-50 type frame and push rod motor, is this a euro model or did some one construct this bike?????
The oldest enduro in america is not the Caney Creek enduro in the forrest of north houston it is the long going ?????
The question about the chief is a chain.
What is a chain drive cowboy????
Did we talk about Preston Petty yet????
Burned remembers a plaid seat on a pushrod 50, this could be a c110 (honda sport 50) that some one recovered the seat on. Those old seats are black. :thumbsup:

They were always talking about 'raisin pie' in Easyriders ("you've earnt ya raisin pie this issue") etc. I was referring to Iron Horse as the other mag', but I agree Outlaw Biker, or probably even SuperCycle could be alternate answers on that one :thumbsup: VQ was the yuppie trash rag. :devil:
