Making it on the Las Vegas Strip is tough. After a 19 year run, the Harley-Davidson Café on South Las Vegas Blvd. is closing its doors October 30th.

With a super-sized motorcycle busting out of its façade, the Las Vegas Harley Café has been an iconic watering hole and eatery on the Strip for ages. With its cool combination of Harley-Davidson and rock & roll memorabilia, the café was a great place to pop in and visit for fans of The Motor Company. It even had a “Chopper Chapel” where people could have an Elvis impersonator marry them. Here’s the closure announcement posted on the Harley-Davidson Café Las Vegas Facebook page.

Attention Attention!

After being here for 19 years, the Harley-Davidson Cafe will be closing down on Sunday, October 30, 2016.

Come on down and let’s enjoy the next couple of weeks till we close.

And as always #PartyHarley


And while hearing of the café’s closing is a bummer, there is something good to come from it. All of the cool decorations and memorabilia inside the café is up for sale. Nellis Auction is holding an online auction and will have items shipped to buyers if they can’t pick them up in person (for a fee, of course). There’s some great stuff up for grabs, including a replica 1913 Harley board track racer, a replica of Elvis’ 2957 FLH, tons of music memorabilia like a Bon Jovi snakeskin jacket signed by the man himself, and plenty of Harley gas tanks signed by actors, entertainers and sports figures.

Here’s a link to Nellis Auction #74 for the Harley-Davidson Café and more information courtesy of the Nellis Auction site.

We’re Not Going to Take It! 13th Annual Brittney Ride for St. Jude http://www.aimag.com/were-not-going-to-take-it-13th-annual-brittney-ride-for-st-jude/ Tue, 25 Oct 2016 05:00:33 +0000 http://www.aimag.com/?p=22519 Brittney Ride 2016 "We're Not Going to Take It"

“We’re not gonna take it!” was the rally cry of the 2016 Brittney Ride.

“We’re Not Gonna Take It!”

Slowly they filled the stage, groups of volunteers who make the annual Brittney Ride for St. Jude happen, each group holding up a sign marked with these words.

In the background, the powerful video featuring Dee Snyder singing his band’s marquee song played, Snyder belting out a passionate version against key strokes of a piano.

“Every 2 Minutes a Child is Diagnosed with Cancer” flashes across the screen as Snyder sings, the video transitioning to clips of a mom holding a framed picture of her afflicted daughter. The mother then shaves her head in honor of her child, the video switching between her and heart-wrenching shots of kids in the hospital. By the time the video ends, few dry eyes are left in the grand ballroom.

For the last 13 years Dayle Mallory-Bell and her husband Dan have said they’re not going to take it after losing Dayle’s daughter Brittney to a brain tumor. For 13 years straight they’ve held the Brittney Ride in her honor.

Dayle and Dan 2016 Brittney Ride

Dayle Mallory-Bell and her husband Dan ride into Seven Feathers’ grand ballroom on his Harley.

“We’re going to keep saving children,” said Mallory-Bell. The annual fundraiser she and Dan organize for St. Jude Children’s Hospital has raised over a half-million dollars to date, and this year’s $94,280 tally will push that total into the $600,000 range.

Not surprisingly, it is the local southern Oregon motorcycle community that continues to rally around the cause. Which is apropos considering the idea for the Brittney Ride ignited at another motorcycle fundraiser, the annual “Toys for Tots” ride held around Christmas-time. It was at the 2003 “Toys for Tots” event that Dan proposed the idea of doing a ride in honor of “sweet Brittney” who Dan had never met but knew through Dayle’s stories. For the last 13 years, the Brittney Ride has taken place in October to celebrate Brittney’s birthday.

The wave of emotion that filled the room that night after the showing of the video reached a crescendo during the live auction when local builder Mark Daley of ThunderStruck Customs took the stage. Though their usual medium is motorcycles, once a year ThunderStruck channels its creativity in customizing a couple of guitars for the auction. With AC/DC blaring over the loudspeakers, Daley unveiled a racy red electric guitar tagged with Firestone, Mooneyes and Hooker Headers stickers to a rousing ovation from the crowd. Daley tapped into his love of NHRA race cars for the drag-themed guitar that features an NHRA tree, Super Tach gauge, a piston whammy bar shifter, a fuel switch like you’d have on a race car, and little wheels for volume control knobs. The stickers are from products Daley used street racing in his wild youth trying to win money to make his car go faster.

While the NHRA-themed guitar got the crowd revved up, emotional levels in the room reached another level when Daley got ready to unveil the second custom guitar.

Mark Daley ThunderStruck custom guitar Brittney Ride 2016

Mark Daley holds “Sacred,” the billet guitar ThunderStruck made for this year’s Brittney Ride.

“I was inspired to do this guitar by events that are transpiring in the world today, everything from an athlete taking a knee during the national anthem to a young person desecrating our flag to liberty being at stake and to God being taken out of just about everything. I don’t know how you guys feel about it, but it makes me think. My mom always taught me respect, honesty, integrity and hard work will get you anywhere you want to go. I thank you for that mom, I love you.

“That being said, I see what the world’s doing today and it saddens me to see what people, the lack of respect in the things that they do, that they don’t do. This guitar’s a tribute to all the things it seems to me the world is getting away from and falling short on. Let’s let it rip. We call it “Sacred” by the way.

“It says “We the People” on the very front. On the very back at the top where it’s green is the Statue of Liberty and it goes down into a flag. And when it does that, down at the bottom here, it’s a picture of Jesus and it says “In God We Trust.” The one thing that’s kind of cool about this guitar is that, whoever buys it will have what nobody else really has is this Jesus on the back of it is the exact tattoo that’s on my arm. So we will have something in common forever whoever buys it. It also has the words “Grace” on the front and “Love” “Faith” “Integrity” “Hope” on the back, inspiring words I wish a lot of the world would get back to,” added Daley.

In God We Trust ThunderStruck custom guitar 2016

A special wrinkle to the guitar customized by ThunderStruck this year is a picture of Jesus that matches the one on Mark Daley’s forearm.

The bid for the billet guitar jumped to $5,000 before it even went on the block. A $10,000 bid from the back of the room left auctioneer Jason Allen, a local radio personality with country station Q100.3, with a blank stare and a wide-open mouth. But that lofty sum didn’t seal the deal. The total climbed to a staggering $12,000, the highest ever paid at the Brittney Ride, before Pat and Brenda Kirkpatrick walked away winners. Pat was quick to point it wasn’t about placing a record-breaking bid but helping out the children of St. Jude.

Spirited bidding seemed to be the theme of the night. Right out of the gate, a guitar signed by rockers Def Leppard auctioned off for $1625. The bidding for the Brad Paisley-signed guitar started at $500. Harley-Davidson t-shirts from around the globe also raised good money. One from Waterford, Ireland, sold for $220 while a Memphis “Graceland” Harley tee went for a whopping $500. A military-themed Harley tee package featuring six different shirts sold for $600 to a lady who served in Desert Storm. Another popular item was a “Garden Package” put together by Brittney’s aunt with items that reminded the aunt of Brittney like flowers and butterflies which raised $1825.

Brittney Ride Seven Feathers Casino Resort 2016

Seven Feathers Casino Resort once again was the gracious host of the Brittney Ride, this year’s event including a car show for the very first time.

Dayle and Dan have nailed down the formula for a successful fundraiser. The weekend-long event is held at Seven Feathers Casino Resort which always goes out of its way to make bikers feel welcome. The festivities start with a meet-and-greet Friday night and doesn’t stop till the farewell breakfast Sunday morning. Loverboy rocked it Friday night as Mike Reno and the band had people on their feet and singing along by the end of the set. Saturday started with a scavenger hunt, silent auction, prize wheels, a car and bike show, and homegrown rockabilly by the John Dough Boys. Kudos to James Stewart who won “Best Paint” in the bike show and Beau from Cave Junction whose 1946 Indian Chief won “People’s Choice.” Joe and Linda Milder’s 1940 Buick Special 4-Door racked up the awards at the car show by winning both “Best Paint” and “Best of Show” honors. Janelle Skeen rode away from the event a happy girl after winning the scavenger hunt and a $500 gift certificate from long-time sponsor D&S Harley-Davidson. Skeen said the funnest part of the scavenger hunt was having her friend handcuffed by a local sheriff for a quick photo op.

Saturday night everyone gathered in the casino’s grand ballroom for a sumptuous dinner of carved prime rib and fixings prepared by the fine culinary team at Seven Feathers. Then it was time to get down to the business of raising big bucks for the children of St. Jude in the live auction which raised $39,515 in a single evening.

ThunderStruck Custom chopper Brittney Ride 2016

ThunderStruck Customs, who channeled its creativity into two custom guitars for the auction, makes some pretty mean motorcycles, too!

While the Brittney Ride is always a special occasion, this year’s event seemed even more so. From the “We’re Not Gonna Take It” demonstration by supporters to the impetus behind the ThunderStruck guitar this year to the record amount it sold for, the 2016 Brittney Ride was special indeed as bikers in my neck of the woods once again banded together to support the worthwhile cause.

1931 Harley V Model Bobber http://www.aimag.com/1931harley-v-model-bobber/ Mon, 24 Oct 2016 17:45:31 +0000 http://www.aimag.com/?p=22471 American Iron Classic - 1931 H-D V Model

American Iron Classic – 1931 H-D V Model – American Iron Magazine Issue #340

The future of old bikes belongs to young bucks

There’s growing concern among today’s aging vintage motorcycle enthusiasts regarding the next generation of owners of old bikes. The circle of life has put the baby boomer generation next in line for that big flea market in the sky, and so the question many of those boomers ask today is: will the Millennial Generation (18-35-year-olds) step up to serve as stewards of the aging bikes that are, regardless of what generation we’re talking about, irreplaceable?

Time and again, I’ve walked the aisles and fields at our Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA) meets only to observe that practically everyone I encounter joined the club during the late 1960s or the ’70s or ’80s, an outgrowth of his biker days marked by the maturing of tastes and aided by newfound disposable income. Consequently, there’s a generational cliff starting at about 1990 that we need to backfill and infuse with the love of old machines. We have to do a better job of getting more 20 somethings involved in the old bike scene or many of our most treasured machines will be exported overseas to fuel the growing demand for vintage Americana elsewhere in the world.

1931 Harley V Model American Iron Magazine Issue 340

This bobber project began with the basics: a stock 1931 frame with an I-beam front end, motor, and transmission. 

Thankfully, Buck (short for Buckley) Carson of Livingston, Texas, is one of the young guns in the club who, at 23 years old, is not only a vintage motorcycle enthusiast, but a leader in the field, making a difference with his energy and efforts among members of his generation. You see, Buck has a weekly Internet-based radio blog show called Classic Chrome on The Road Hawgs Radio Network. He’s heard by 98,000 listeners during his 7 p.m. (Central Standard Time) worldwide broadcast. Each show, he and guests explore topics like old motorcycles and the culture surrounding them, tech-related stories, book reviews, etc. Whatever strikes his fancy regarding the vintage bike scene.

His love for old machines is steeped in his family’s involvement in the sport. His grandfather and dad, Mike (a diehard trials and enduro competitor), were collectors and enthusiasts themselves, and they took Buck under their wings, tutoring him about old iron. First up was a cosmetic restoration of his granddad’s 1982 FLT about eight years ago. That experience fully baked the love for old bikes into Buck’s DNA. Currently, the Carsons’ combined private collection includes about 90 motorcycles, a mix of American, English, and European machines. The assemblage goes by the name Carson Classic Motors and is housed in a 3,600-sq-ft. steel building that’s been expanded many times. I suspect the business will continue to grow exponentially well into the future if Buck has final say in company matters.

1931 Harley V back fender

Cut down and clean, classic bobber style!

The 1931 V model featured here is part of the Carson collection and represents the classic bobber style. The bike came about after a conversation that Mike and Buck had with John Cullere, a noted VL expert and restorer with an extensive collection of VL parts. John had restored a VL for their mutual friend Scott Byrd, and the Carsons loved his work, commissioning him to build this VL bobber. They wanted it built to a 1930s-’40s bobber theme, to be period correct, and bulletproof in terms of ridability.

Progressive and Movember Foundation Rev Up for Men’s Health http://www.aimag.com/progressive-motorcycle-insurance-and-movember-foundation-rev-up-for-mens-health/ Fri, 21 Oct 2016 17:04:14 +0000 http://www.aimag.com/?p=22460 Progressive Mos and Motos team inspires motorcyclists across the U.S. to join the cause

Progressive Insurance is once again teaming up with the Movember Foundation to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. Together, Progressive and Movember are fueling awareness about “Throttle Therapy” and the advantages that riding has on your mental well-being.

As the #1 motorcycle insurer, Progressive is passionate about the motorcycle community, just as the Movember Foundation is passionate about making a positive change for men’s health. Showing the world what this community stands for, the Progressive Mos and Motos team will inspire motorcyclists across the U.S. to join the cause, and raise money and awareness for men’s health issues.

“Raising money and awareness of men’s health issues is extremely important to us as we know that healthy riders are just as important as healthy bikes,” said Scott Hall, Progressive Motorcycle Product Manager. “One of the big draws of the motorcycle lifestyle is how riding serves as a positive outlet, helping people clear their minds and foster mental well-being. We call this Throttle Therapy.”

Progressive Movember campaign

To kick off Movember, Progressive will be hosting “Shave Down” events at Whiskey Grade in Cleveland, Ohio on Oct. 28 and SHED Barbershop in Austin, Texas on Nov. 3, to prepare people for the Movember challenge, ensuring that their mustaches have all the support they need. Additionally, Progressive is bringing Flo’s Chop Shop, a mobile barber shop offering straight-razor beard and mustache shaves by SHED Barbershop, to motorcycle events across the U.S. throughout the month of November, including the International Motorcycle Shows.

Flo’s Chop Shop will offer complimentary shaves, as well as boot shines and mini-manicures, to motorcycle event attendees across the country and make a $10 donation to the Movember Foundation (up to $20,000) for each of those willing to shave down to a mustache and post a photo to their social channels.

Those who join the Mos and Motos network and raise at least $50 will be entered to win a one-of-a-kind, custom scrambler motorcycle created by renowned motorcycle fabricator, Classified Moto – creators of Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) motorcycle on AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” On top of that, additional entries into the giveaway are awarded for every $50 increment raised. Learn more about the Classified Moto custom bike giveaway at the Mos and Motos Movember page at monetwork.co/mosandmotos.

Harley Softail Slim Engine Guard & Soft Lowers Install (Intro) http://www.aimag.com/harley-softail-slim-engine-guard-soft-lowers-install-intro/ Thu, 20 Oct 2016 17:56:19 +0000 http://www.aimag.com/?p=22447 Harley Softail Slim Engine Guard and Soft Lowers Install

The engine guard and soft lowers add a nostalgic look to this Slim.

By Steve Lita/Photos by Tricia Szulewski

Adding some Softail Slim protectors

We were fortunate enough to get our hands on a brand-new 2016 Softail Slim S this year, and we just couldn’t leave well enough alone. The Slim has a nostalgic look and feel with its wire spoke wheels and Hollywood handlebar. And since our Slim came in the Olive Gold Denim paint scheme, with the military-grade lettering and star on the tank, we thought it would be fun to militarize it a bit more by adding a Harley-Davidson Black Engine Guard (#49023-02A/$214.95) and Soft Lower Kit (#57100213/$109.95), giving it even more of a vintage Army bike look.

H-D Softail Slime Engine Guard and Soft Lower Kit

First remove the clutch hose clip on the front frame tube with a T20 Torx wrench to allow some slack in the line.

There’s a chrome version of this engine bar available, but we opted for the gloss black, to match almost everything else on this Slim. The install was a quick and easy, three bolts, and since it’s a Genuine Harley-Davidson accessory, you know it’ll fit well right out of the box.

Softail Slim Engine Guard install

Install a bolt, washer, and locknut where the lower engine guard mounting point meets the floorboard mounting bracket on both sides of the bike. Tighten to 33 ft-lbs. with a T40 Torx wrench and 9/16” wrench.

We have more in store for this Slim, like a sprung leather solo seat, and old-time driving lights. Watch for more installs in American Iron Magazine and our sister publication, American Iron Garage. AIM

Screamin’ Eagle Stage II Kits for Harley Milwaukee-Eight http://www.aimag.com/screamin-eagle-stage-ii-kits-for-harley-milwaukee-eight/ Wed, 19 Oct 2016 17:46:10 +0000 http://www.aimag.com/?p=22436 Screamin' Eagle Stage II Kit for Milwaukee-Eight

Screamin’ Eagle Stage II Kit for Milwaukee-Eight

Take a Screamin’ Eagle Stage I equipped Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight engine to the next level with a Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight Stage II Kit from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories. Screamin’ Eagle Stage I – Screamin’ Eagle air filter, Street Cannon mufflers and Screamin’ Eagle Pro Street Tuner – lays the performance foundation. Screamin’ Eagle Stage II adds a performance camshaft to achieve the next step up in performance. Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories offers two Stage II camshaft choices to tailor Milwaukee-Eight performance to specific needs.

The Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight Stage II – Torque Kit (P/N 92500047, $389.95*) features a Screamin’ Eagle torque camshaft that delivers on-demand throttle response from low to mid RPM at cruising speed. Installed in the Milwaukee-Eight, this cam produces a 5 percent increase in torque over the stock engine that can be felt immediately off the line and continues to build up to 14 percent more torque at 4500 RPM, an ideal power band for passing slow-moving vehicles without a downshift and compensating for the weight of a passenger and luggage. Kit components include a Screamin’ Eagle SE8-447 cam, adjustable pushrods, pushrod covers, O-rings, and a cam cover gasket.

Riders will get an adrenaline-pumping burst of speed from the Milwaukee-Eight engine by installing the Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight Stage II – Power Kit (P/N 92500058, $389.95*) with a Screamin’ Eagle power camshaft that starts to pile on power at 3000 RPM and continues to build by up to 24 percent more power than the stock engine at redline. This kit is ideal for riders who want to ride the bike aggressively while downshifting to lower gears to keep the engine operating in the higher RPM range. Kit components include a Screamin’ Eagle SE8-462 cam, adjustable pushrods, pushrod covers, O-rings, and a cam cover gasket.

Both Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight Engine Stage II Kits fit 2017 Harley-Davidson Touring models, but do not fit Trike models. Installation is minimally invasive requiring only opening of the cam chest, retains Original Equipment Factory Warranty and is 50-state U.S. EPA compliant.

Installation requires the separate purchase and installation of a Screamin’ Eagle Stage I Kit, Cam Drive Retention Kit (P/N 25566-06) and may require Cam Spacer Kit (P/N 25928-06). All models require ECM calibration with Screamin’ Eagle Pro Street Tuner for proper installation. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for details.

These and other Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories are available at more than 750 authorized retail locations in the United States and online.
