There were at least 5 Sportsters entered into the Ma Rad's Rumble on the Deck Chopper Show and awards were only given out for 1st and 2nd. I didn't win but the bike that took 1st place in the Sportster class (and deservedly so) was "The Gypsy". I have a lot of photos of this bike on my blog from various events over the last year or so. I'm not sure which bike took 2nd.
This hardtailed ironhead that was parked next to my Sportster.
This Iron called "Penny Pincher" featured a ghosted image of an Abraham Lincoln skeleton on the penny. Why wouldn't it?
These last two are Buells but we'll consider them Sportsters for the sake of post cohesiveness. The first was extremely low and had lots of interesting details from the paint to the hand shifter to the motor mounts (or lack thereof) to the foot clutch to the kickstand, etc.
I really liked this Buell a lot. This one is a 2001 Buell Cyclone that has been hardtailed and the detail work is really, really nice.
After the sun set and the awards were handed out, all the bikes rumbled off the deck and I headed home. It was a great day and I had a lot of fun. Hope you enjoyed the photos.
Full Tilt Boogie pics from last Saturday will be up next and photos from the Bearded Lady (which is where you should be today) will eventually be posted at some point after that. I have to take them first. :)
