History

The German Custombike Magazine asked me to write a column. Therefore I skipped through my very few memorables and pics from the time I got into choppers. I found this photograph of the first chopper I saw for real. That was in Denmark '71.



In '74 my 18 birthday was in reach and so the drivers licence. Just one more year. Time to buy a BSA and the catalogue of the only Chopper parts supplier in Germany back than: AME
I found this nice original copy in a drawer and decided to share this with all you lucky born late.

Yes kids, that was all we got.

New blog!




We are receiving requests regarding places to stay overnight at the CNM.

The easiest way to communicate all the facts and news about rooms, camping, services and routings is to make this an extra blog.

Today we launched the CNM Hospitality blog for this reason.

Please use the direct link or the button to get there.

If you need something you dont find there, let us know.

We are looking forward to see you.

VVMC

Let me introduce some friends to you. The VeniceVintageMotorcycleClub.
Californian lifestyle at its best. Located in Venice Beach,CA these guys enjoying their life. This club is wellknown for the weekly barhopper run on wednesdays (doing at least 4 bars in a row) and the monthly canyon run, that is a ride out in the greater Los Angeles area with about 70 bikes joining in. And sometimes even EwanMcGregor in this bunch. Our good friend and Choppertown director Scott is leader of the pack most of the times. And be aware- he rides the shit out of the Harbortown Bobber.
One of the barhopper targets. nice place, good music and PBR


Shannon Sweeney, who is running a motorcycle shop in Venice is "El capitan" of the VVMC.

Many of the customers of his shop have very smll mirrors mounted on the handlebar ends of their scoots, coming from Shannon.

He found a type of mirrors, produced originally for BMX bicycles, that have an amazing wide angle view over two lanes at least. He modifies them for motorcycle use. And they are perfect.

He will send a few to us, so you have the chance to buy them for a small $, or even win one in our raffle.

If you are going to LA, visit his shop and find out when the next run will happen. Maybe you can join? And also watch out for their next event.

men on a mission

The 2 most important supporters of our case are Pepe and Mark, owners of the Quartier Latin. This pub is the center of the CNM again and we would not be able doing this without this men. But it is not the business that drives the brothers. It is their passion for motorcycles. They have a nice little collection of bikes in their hidden shed. No fancy stuff and not of a particular style, but with a lot of soul. And regarding the English racing bikes from the old times- a lot of balls. By the way in a couple of days the other big event around the QL is happening: the "Springjam" Open Air music festival. 2 days full of RnR. Check out the hp for more. http://www.quartier-latin.info/
