Ton-Up/ Rockers Revival

Well, for the month of May we here at C4 assume that just because we are busy, the readers are too. So, we didn't post anything.

However, I'm here to post something that is good. Motorcycle show coverage. 

The Ton-up is a cafe bike show that has been going on for the past six years at the melody inn in Indianapolis. Though it is a show centered around cafe themed bikes, everything else is welcome. There weren't many choppers, but there were a lot of good looking bikes.

I'm not the most creative photographer, but I did want to get a good cross section of bikes. 

This puch was my favorite thing there

Still, just so awesome

I thought the guy riding this triumph seemed pretty cool

I liked the colour of the stripe and the proportion of this bike

Also, this tail light is so cool!

I love peanuts

The coolest harley there. Hands down, XR1000s are my favorite

A bike known as Magik Vomik, that was recently featured in Street Chopper Magazine, my friend nate painted 
I think I just thought this was cool 
My buddies Bert and Nick showed up. This is Berts Honda with a Amen  frame

If I were to build a honda... 

There were probably 100 or so bikes, which is a good turn out for indy. The inner primary separated on my shovel on the way home, so I had to use my foot to hold it up. If you get the chance, go to it next year!

Hey! It's Nate!

Despite my disdain for auto play music on any web page from the time Al Gore invented the internet up until this very second, Nate has a really great blog. Worth looking at for sure and no, i'm not just posting this because he posted a picture I took. (Ed Lepolds LaSalle pictured below.)

The guy has an eye for style that most people are not blessed with. I mean, just check out the bad show bike Triumph at the top of the page, or his Pan which he calls "The Ice Queen". This guy has something going on in his brain that gives him the ability to put something together that can't be matched at your run of the mill "Biker Rally". Keep at it Nate. C4 loves it.
