Our good friend over at “The Selvedge Yard” posts some of the most genuine and inspired blog content around, so we weren’t surprised when we stumbled upon yet another amazing feature that we just had to share. In this case, it’s vintage images of Daytona Beach bike week in the 60s+70s. Needless to say, the photographs [along with JP’s commentary] capture a time and energy in history that remains unreplicable.
“Daytona Beach during the Golden age of the ’70s & ’80s. Before Bike Week became some three-ring commercialized circus of fake boobs on a stick, there were riders and vanners of a kindred spirit who came to hang out, party on the beach, chill. They did it outta love instead of the hype. And the boobs were real, man. Kinda makes you wanna take it by force from the corporate pricks, and get back to what made it great in the first place– brotherhood, escaping the grind of the rat race, and finding a little soul on the road.”
