catalog cover bike

This image was the cover of our first 1971 parts catalog for dealers and retail mail order customers in the US. We were one of the first distributors of chopper parts for Paughco, Santee Industries, Cycle Shack and others. At one time we were the largest reseller of ARCO brand motorcycle tires in the country. I molded and painted this bike in my garage during my "metalflake" period. That's 20 over Wayne Engineering girder fork that we sold exclusively from our shops. Arlen's very first handlebars and 2 inch D&D Distributors drag pipes were cutting edge parts at the time. Scanned from a 1971 b/w Kodak print and post processed in Photoshop CS, best viewed large.
