1979 Honda Moto Martin CBX

The Moto Martin CBX frame was manufactured in Brittany, France commencing in 1979. The Moto Martin has become the best known and probably the most sought after of the CBX specialist frames in the world.

There were only about 75-100 frames built for the Honda CBX 6-cylinder and this is one of possibly 4 in the United States and took over 5 years to rebuild.

1964 Norton Atlas

The Atlas was a 750CC and mainly an export version of the domestic Dominator. This bike handle very well for 1964 with the renowned “Featherbed” frame and “Roadholder” front forks.

Not a weak performer in its day as it was designed for doing “the ton” (100mph) with other period performance bikes.

1946 Moto Guzzi Superalce

This four-stroke, single cylinder 500cc bike with a top speed 110 kph was the first used by the Italian army in the late 1920s.

In 1939 Guzzi developed a lightened and improved four-speed version, the GT20 which wasrenamed 'Alce' (elk). In 1943 the Alce was updated with the more powerful overhead-valve engine, becoming the Superalce, which remained in service with the Italian Army and police well into the 1950s.

Ode To The Sunhippie - Part 2

This was originally posted in 2014 and yesterday I received the below story from Juan Diaz who was a passenger on her from Cuba at the age of 15. He is now the Fire Chief of the Mountain View Fire Department in California.

From Juan - Here's what I wrote last night:

To "SunHippie" the greatest shrimp boat that ever was.

Those of you that are close to me know that at my house there's a prominent picture of a shrimp boat. SunHippie originally out of Key West Fla. In May of 1980, after 20 years of my dad and mom trying to leave Cuba for the American Dream we boarded SunHippie. I was 15 years old. This was during the infamous "Mariel Boat Lift" where approximately 120,000 Cubans migrated to the U.S.

Well my dear savior, it was saddening tonight to learn of the details of your demise & that you have been scrapped and left to rot. You were where I ate for the first time in my life an apple and a piece of ham. You gave me my first Coca Cola drink, my first piece of gum and my first milk in a carton (that I didn't know how to open). It was on your deck where I felt freedom for the first time as we were able to openly express our disapproval for the Castro's regime. Remember? We were chanting USA USA USA Si! Castros No! These were symbols to me of good life to come in the best country in the world, the USA. You floated us out of misery and into the American fresh air. You made my American Dream possible and for that I have always cherished you.

I visited you on just about every trip to Florida and to your owners Mr. and Mrs. Larry Foltz, I will always be grateful for allowing me to visit you. But this summer you weren't there. I knew you traveled up and down the Atlantic coast shrimping. But something was telling me something was wrong. I knew you were getting old and your old wooden planks built in Spain in 1979 were taking a toll on you. I was lucky to have my kids board your old deck a few years back and for them to appreciate how lucky we were because of you. You navigated the rough waters of the Straits of Florida that warm night and although overloaded with dreamers like me, you safely docked us in Key West. So to you, my savior, I say Thank You "SunHippie" for shining a bright light in my life. May you rest in peace.

Story
Tagline
but it's not like that; I never knew nothing about no Mississippi. - Buddy Guy
Introduction
I am a Northern California Expat living in a rural southern county covering 651 square miles on the Florida, Georgia border located between the Okefenokee Swamp and Isles of Cumberland.

To pay the bills these days I work in a Training Academy full time during days and also run two small software companies, PSM Quest– Photography Studio Management Software and The Motif Collective. The Academy work is the best job I have ever had and Quest was a personal challenge to take an idea, personally design, develop/test and then take it to market. It will never dominate the market vertical but we have grown quite nicely in a very short time on an international level. The Motif Collective is an online Fine Art Competition gallery dedicated to monthly Photography Contests and it is really growing nicely this year with some amazing images and awesome industry support.

I love nature, steel, blues, technology, imaging and anything that fits in the lens of a Camera!

My photography is online at Adams Views Imaging.

My favorite Printer is CG Pro - hands down off the scale affordable canvas prints for pros!
