CA-99 is the worst in the world. When it’s not and foggy, it’s hotter and than a steaming pile of And it’s straight and featureless, through nondescript farm after farm town, with fields of various California is known for.

I had a in Fresno once, years and I’d blaze up that stretch of a few times a month, thankfully on a fast bike. Since my trips up the 99 have been few. This time, the amount of time since the trip, was not so bad.

Back it took a bit of cooze to get me motivated, but Binford of Binford Custom (BCC) did a pretty good job a suitable replacement. Paul had me, as he does on occasion, to show me a new he’d built; this in fact. To coax me up the dreaded 99, he set up the at the Castle Air Museum, hooked up a fine little retro girl (albeit, young to be my daughter), and even offered to buy me

I still might have but in my driveway was a Victory Cross Tour that I wanted to get to a little better. So I went.

For a like this, Castle Air was the perfect location, with its of aircraft from before and the era of gaping shark mouths on the of military plane noses. On the of the former Castle Air Force in Atwater, California, the museum acres of lawn with planes stretching from War II to the Cold War. But importantly, were more than a with an iconic shark

The shark-nose fairing that appeared in the ’80s has always the more functional of H-D’s designs, but despite that, a of people prefer the traditional as found on Street Glides and Glides. The shark is fairly in appearance, drawing down its high leading edge, like the nose of a plane. So a to go with that nose is a natural progression.

The most shark-nose/mouth combo was the one made by the mercenary Flying Tigers on P-40 Tomahawks, prior to the US to WWII, a group given the blessing of FDR to fight the good in China versus the marauding and armed Japanese military. The was hopelessly outmatched by the lighter and advanced Japanese aircraft, but to kill far more then lost.

Perhaps it’s something destiny or irony that you’ve got American custom making garage-built customs scratch using a blend of and Chinese parts as an alternative to and more advanced) Japanese Not that there are any Chinese on this bike; the forks are but I digress.

This bike may not gone to war tens of thousands of off the ground, but it has had a tortured existence as a bike. The owner (who himself alternately as “Junior” and Santana,” neither of which I to be the name on his birth certificate) the bike and immediately upgraded to a stereo and commissioned a pearl paintjob. The shop that was the work even started on it raked out to 42 degrees, but for one reason or work stopped and the bike on.

The second shop (is this to feel like Three Pigs to anybody else but actually installed the Alpine along with some goodies. Junior decided his fly was ready for the big time and entered it in a show at the Black Oak Casino in California. Instead of the good one usually associates with a show, this one dealt a blow to Carlos: a) he didn’t the flyest ride there, not by a shot, and b) he wrecked the bike the weekend.

Shop #3 was BCC in Manteca, California, in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. I we don’t need to tell you this is the bike that out the other side. Aside the shark-face/WWII/pinup theme, the Road got a fine assortment of Binford’s new Knuckle parts: footboards, pegs, and fender spacers.

all this time being on cosmetics, the BCC crew talked into some motor bringing the 103ci mill up to 125 and 126 lb-ft of torque.

I think safe to say Junior is now a happy owner. We yakked a bit over a of chile rellenos (he’s a and he’s clearly stoked on motorcycle, eyes lighting up he talks about it.

The best part (not our awesome pinup girl) was to the shoot, hop back on the Victory, and for the cool, twisty roads of the Santa Cruz is one of my favorite and I was headed there. •
