Default "Cap'n there be Sportys here!" lots of pics!

Ok, pardon the play on the movie quote but today was the "ride in" bike show at Sun HD in Thornton, CO (north Denver suburb). I was pleasantly surprised that there were a fair number of Sportsters. The show was billed as a "custom" bike show so I did not take pics of the few bikes entered that were stock w/the exception of chrome stick on parts or front fenders removed.

Sun has 2 stores, HD is one-Honda/Kawasaki and something else is another. They are the oldest HD dealer in Colorado. The show was in the parking lot between the 2 stores.

Lots of pics, I give info on the bikes when I was able to get it, enjoy!





Sportys:


1988, my favorite of the Sportsters there:

Not sure what year, the owner of this one actually runs it at a small flat track north of town that has races either once or twice a month:



1973 Norton 850 Commando, not restored, 3rd owner, Dunstall factory pipes:



One wicked custom, 130" S&S race motor, owner said it took 6 months to do the paint alone:

Not sure what this is, hard tail frame, the guy rode it to Sturgis last year from the Denver area:

A couple of old Kawasakis, different owners. First up 1980 Z1-R, all original, from Tulsa, the current owner even had the 1/4 mile time print outs from the original owner:

This is a turbo charged 1000, original owner, used to work at the Kawasaki shop, 1981:

Stunt rider Kane Friesen, seemed like a nice kid. Was having problems with how his bike was running but still did some way cool stuff. All in all not a bad way to spend a crazy hot day (near or at 100!) though I did loose my favorite ball cap (it was velcroed to the grab strap on my seat) on my way up. A little souvenir from a friend's trip to A'stan-tan w/subdued flag, name tag strip on the back and IR patch on top. Damn, I really liked that hat.





Sorry I didn't respond to some of the questions, I was continuing to post more pics, hope you all enjoyed them.
