In the parking lot at the Xavier the X man cruise for the cause Bone Marrow registry and blood drive

This cool guy started wrenching with an uncle on hot rods in the 50's, and since then has built a lot of cool stuff... from hot rods to bobber bikes.

Just one of a collection of 14 Franklins... a 1927 Tandem Sport Franklin

This has an air cooled 55 HP 199 CI straight six and cost $3190 in '27. He says it can go 45 mph all day and tops out around 55 mph.

Thanks to Steve for taking the time to take these photos and email them to me to share with all of you! Steve's website: good for lots of laughs... especially the Torgeson sisters photo
