December Vintage Bike OC Meet
Indian Speedometer

Huntington Beach, Calif. - We had a great meet today to wrap up 2017. The Santa Ana winds have calmed down and the weather was great for the meet. 107 bikes showed up and we had a large variety, something for everyone.

Bike of the Month
Congratulations to Bill Perrone of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1934 Moto Guzzi GT16. Bill won a trophy provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.

Bill has owned this bike for two years and today was it's maiden ride on American soil. Read all about the 1934 Moto Guzzi GT16 on our Bike of the Month page.

Second Place
Paul Faynor of Orange took Second place with his 1963 Heinkl Tourist. He bought this German scooter a year ago for his daughter Jenelle. It's the first Heinkle we've ever had at Vintage Bike OC. The Tourist is powered by a 175cc 4-stroke single.

Third Place Tie
Brian Bell and his son of Trabuco Canyon Beach tied for Second with their 1937 Indian Chout. Chout in a nickname for a hybrid Indian using a Scout frame and a Chief motor.

This Indian was owned by Dewey Bonkrud who raced it and worked for Irv Seaver in Orange from the 1920's until the mid 1970's. Dewey was the First Inductee into the Trail Blazer's Motorcycle Club Hall of Fame. Dewey continued to use Irv Seaver's shop well into the 1980's.

Greg Slator of Placentia tied for Third place with his rare 1973 Honda CB350. Greg has owned his Honda since 1996 and restored it in April 2016.

The three second and third place winners were awarded EuroPapi t-shirts provided by Roland Ortiz of EuroPapi Motorcycle Streetwear,

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 2017
I hope you all have a very Happy Holidays surrounded by friends and family. Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event and a special thanks to the team, Tom & Debbie Hopkins. I'll see you at the next meet on January 14, 2018.

Keep On Ridin',
Joe Kagerer
