Indian Larry Block Party 2019

Wow! So much going on recently! Let’s back it up a bit. Last weekend was the 16th Annual Indian Larry Block Party in Brooklyn.

Bikes lined the street again for a fun-filled day!

A fire broke out to the south but it was quickly extinguished.

This vintage Bonnie took a front row spot on the corner.

Behind Indian Larry’s they were having a barbeque with food, a bar, and a DJ. Off to the side was this nice little nook that had a table and chairs in a garden with beehives. It was a nice respite from the craziness.

A la Big Daddy Roth!

Love a Knucklehead!

Some gorgeous vintage vehicles are always in attendance as well. Like this early 60’s Corvette.

Some Captain America action below. The Easy Rider Live show the night before was amazing!

Some of my favorite people were there. Here is Darren McKeag working on a helmet. He has a masterful brushstroke. I really dig his work. I own a few pieces of his, including a beautiful helmet I got at Indian Larry’s a few years ago. On this day I bought that “Ghost Riders” print you see in the photo below.

This is my helmet.

Darren and his wife Missy were about to celebrate their anniversary a couple days later. I saw them at Sturgis a few years back just before they got hitched. Congratulations Darren and Missy!

Here is Makoto Endo. He paints motorcycles using chopsticks as his brush.

He is at many motorcycle events. Here he is painting one of Indian Larry’s bikes.

And here is the lovely Gloria Struck. Gloria has been riding for over 75 years. She is in the AMA Hall of Fame and still riding! She is holding her biography. She signed on for me last year.

Inside Larry’s shop, folks were getting tattoos.

This flaming pick up was here again. I believe it was parked in the same spot last year.

The skyline of Manhattan makes a fine backdrop for the days’ activities.

This old Corvair was very customized. Looks like it could really tear things up.

Here is Jillian with a NY salute!

BURNOUTS!

This dude was having a blast! He was surrounded by cops and did not give a shit!

He ripped it up, flew down the road and came back for more.

On the next block, a few other dudes started burning up rubber.

You can see chunks of hot rubber flying through the air!

And I could feel it as those rear tires spit their molten residue on my flesh. Gotta sacrifice for the good shots!

After a walkabout this Corvair had replaced the Corvette.

We had a great meal at a French Restaurant and hopped back on the ferry.

A great day at Larry’s.
