Ton up club???

Anyone been out to meet up with these dudes? I was checking out their website, and thoughtit may be cool to go have a beer with em. I've always been a fan of old Britt bikes, cafe racers and bobbers. My sh*t may not be old and brittish, but it is flat black and held together with zip ties... Does well over the ton though.

I've been wanting to meet up with them as well, but just haven't had the time to do so. The original idea behind my bike's theme was to be a modern take on the old cafe racers. I was just about done, but then I crashed it... and since then, I haven't been sure whether to completely redo/rebuild it to pristine condition, or just fuggedaboutit and get another bike.

I used to have an old Triumph and went on a few rides with them. Most of them are older guys (40-50), nothing wrong with that it's just a different scene. There is one interesting character. There is this guy from Angleton that is so into these British bikes that he talks with an English accent, but he is not from England. Weird.

Sounds like Les to me. If you lads want to see some proper bikes without all the posers, take a run up to New Ulm in May. Hang on, they will be there. Ok, well the bike to poser ratio will be much better up there.

That guy is weird. I keep hearing he is from Angleton and he has that accent. Lou over at Relic Cycles and about a dozen other people have told me he is a native Texan.
