    Default "New" member from western PA

    Hello. I live in Western PA and was a member of AMCA in the 70's as a young man. Put together a 48 Chief from parts and started it while I was still 18, still have it after everything else has come and gone. My modern ride is a 1972 Shovelhead sidecar. Feels good to be back.

    Great to have you back. I had a '48 Chief as well. Mine had been buried in a hole at a plant nursery in Southern Georgia. I should have kept that bike.

    Welcome from Gettysburg, PA! I guess that '48 Chiefs were great starter bikes for some of us... my first antique motorcycle was a Prairie Green Chief, loved that bike and the unique color.

    Greeting's Bubbalowe, great to see another fallen member re-up the club! I joined the AMCA in 1971, when i received my Michigan State driving privileges. My 1st M/C was my Dad's 1955 FLH Police Special, that he was issued from the Detroit Police M/C Division, the year i was born. Worked for Dot & Earl Robinson H.D. when i was still in High School--that sure was a 'Whole Lotta' Fun'!!!
    Too bad the AMCA doesn't recognize original membership status when you skip a few years in-between. Oh Well, Welcome back!!!

    jan-18-Robinsons-lfa.jpg -->Dot & Earl Robinson-1955. That pan was somewhere in this lineup. Also, H.D.'s very first Police Department M/C contract was for the Detroit Police in 1908. *Built in 1936, at the height of the Depression. Notice the bricks, one of the 1st dealerships to be completely Fireproof.

    -->Hey Bob L., owe You a beer or two, are You going to make Wauseon this year?

    *M.A.D.*

    Guess they were hoping to grow some more 48 Chief Eric.
