A picture from a while ago
We’re going back in time again with a comic made by Hal Robinson. Red Rider could be found in the earlier editions of Easyriders magazine made by Paisano Publications Inc. in California USA.
The comic below was published in Easyriders magazine number 7, from June 1972 [Volume II, No. 3]
I dig these kind of drawings
This Tech-Tip was published in Easyriders magazine number 92, from February 1981.
Bagger somewhere in the ‘Middle-East’ tanning his skin while riding his chopper throught the dessert.
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 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.

The same parts in more detail.
The proud owner back in da days….
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.
Today, two years ago, sadly Big Jos passed away. We all miss him and our thoughts are with him.
Rest in peace.
Right, where were we? Aha, spotting the ‘R’… or was it something else……
