Century Motorcycles Father's Day 2009

Century Motorcycles in San Pedro has been having Fathers day parties for along time. They invite all riders for lunch and to enjoy live music. I go to see the bikes.

A perfect day for a ride and this kind of event. Note the beautiful San Pedro skyline.

One of Cindy's father's (Bill Cotton) Vincents had a place of honor inside the shop.

One of two Knucks that showed up. Note the shifter set up.

This belongs to the shop. Don't know it's history. Looks to be a very early H-D Servi-Car rear axle.

When they are in this condition, there's something about the timeless style of these classic twins that almost tricks you into thinking it's a new bike .

A '54 Cub. You don't see many of these.

It's kind of sad state of affairs that somebody had to ask the owner if it's real or a replica? Kind of takes the fun out of owning the real deal.

The Vincent singles just aren't as exciting. Maybe black would help.

Antique bike with antique alarm system.

This pooch was actually a Ham. At one point, when surrounded by Paparazzi, she just soaked it all up. Seemed to enjoy being the center of attention.

"Okay, I've seen enough, I'm ready to roll now".

It seems you can count on seeing some different bikes at Century. I'm not sure about this one but, there was a company in Scotland(?) that made a Four similar to this.

White walls with black rims just don't do it for me.

Another seemingly new Triumph.

Old meets new.

These Square Fours have a unique sound.

This looks like a fun ride.

The Paparazzi came out again when this chop showed up.

Oh yeah, a belated Happy Father's Day, mother fathers!
