Last Friday the clubhouse from Rabalder MC burnt down to the ground. As no other we know but all to well what they are going through right now.
Last June they celebrated their 25th anniversary and five months later they have to endure one of the worst nightmares a club can overcome.
The three photos above were made while were in Norway last June to celebrate their 25th anniversary together with Rabalder. If you compare them with the pictures below you all know what a great loss this must be.
Damn…… We wish you all a lot of strenght and resilience.
Yesterday we received the sad news that our Norwegian friends, Rabalder MC, had lost their clubhouse to a big fire. The old, some hundred plus years, community building, caught fire and was completly lost. Luckily no one was injured in this inferno. The local firemen knew that Rabalder members had their bikes parked at the clubhouse. Once they saw they couldn’t control the fire, they went in to save the bikes.
Sadly we can imagine what Rabalder is going through now…
since well… you know…
We want to wish Rabalder all the best in this sad episode.
Rabalder remember… in the end… STRONGER THEN EVER!
Yesterday I told about cheap oil-coolers and very cheap oil-filters. Below some photos of my Shovelhead-project back in da days… I bought my Harley in 1982. It was a Electra-Glide and I wanted to change it into a chopper. No suprise there of course.
On the photo above the frame with gear-box.In the left front the engine.
The second photo shows the parts scatered all over the garage floor.
The engine and cylinders into place. In the right lower corner the very cheap oil-cooler. These filters were also very cheap, because the fitting was used in many different Mini Coopers and other models.
Many years ago, January 1975 to be precise, Easyriders magazine published this tech-tip. When I bought my Shovelhead in 1982, I installed a similar oil cooler and also a extra oil-filter. The fitting-system from the oil-filter came from a mini-cooper automobile at a car scrap-yard. All in all less then five buck.
