I know the flow of a three window is more simplistic, I just love the five windows. I've always wanted to get a green five window like my gramps had. It was the first new vehicle he ever bought.
All original Pierce, owned locally since new. In the same family too. Incredible motorcycle still ridden and even drag raced at the local airpark against those "slow" Indians.
The photos below are from the FREE show VROOM: The Art of the Motorcycle. It is at Forest Lawn. A must go.
Cast aluminum dash and tanks.
First time I have been able to get a real good look of a Cocker up close. They are even more intricate than I imagined. This and the Vincent really were ahead of the curve.
Look at the primary detail.
The Hog. Knuckle legend.
Song of the Angels by William Bouguereau, 1881
Gorgeous 19th century revivalism. The color palette in the skin tones incredible.
Gothic architecture and rose stained glass.
Vic loved the Honda.....
Wee Kirk o' the Heather. Exact replica of the British Isles chapel.
