June Vintage Bike OC Meet
1949 Vincent Black Shadow

Huntington Beach, Calif. - Gray skies didn't keep anyone away today, at 1:40 there were already around thirty bikes in the lot, by 2:00 the count was 60 and when all was said and done, 128 bikes packed their way in between Mr. Pete's and KFC.

But we're really not going for quantity, but quality, and we had it in loads today. Mike Wells and his Speedway racing son Michael were at the meet today Michael was excited to share his 30 year old speedway bike that he started on a few years back. Currently Michael Wells (#214) is racing for Lucas Oil in the Junior 250cc class. You can see him race weekly up in City of Industry or after the OC Fair, he will be back tearing up the decomposed granite in Costa Mesa. Mike provided Lucas Oil products for our Bike of the Month contest.

Bike of the Month
Greg McBride of Laguna Woods won Bike of the Month with his 1949 Vincent Black Shadow. Greg won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate provided by Mr. Pete's Grill and two products provided by Lucas Oil and Mike Wells. Most of us know Greg, as he founded our group in 2004 with Thomas Harper. Greg has won Bike of the Month twice in the past with two other Vincents. Read all about the Rollie Free tribute bike on our Bike of the Month page.

Second Place
Rual Madrigal of San Bernardino took Second place with his recently purchased 1973 Honda CB 350 four. He bought this bike a month ago from Bill Johnson in Alta Loma who restored it to prestine condition.

Third Place
Mark Cilani of Newport Beach came in Third place with his racing 1974 Yamaha RD350. Almost always in the top three, Mark has placed three times before. Mark has owned the bike for a year and a half, and says it was originally one of Kenny Roberts racing bikes. It has a liquid cooled Banshee engine instead of the original air cooled RD 350 engine.

Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this another great event and a special thanks to my team, Tom & Debbie Hopkins, Hobo John, Mark D'Ambrosio and Brian "Tink" Tinkler. I'll see you next month on July 10, 2016.

Keep On Ridin',
