Steroid Posted July 22, 2008 Report Share Posted July 22, 2008 Check out this thread................http://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6560&page=24 To explain, in San Bernardino during the 70s, Denver Mullins built fantastic choppers. He died in 1992 and the business was moved by a "partner" to Henderson, Nevada. I still own a Denvers bike and became involved just last week on this forum. My bike is a few photos ahead and other items I still own. Anyway, crusing, as I've mentioned earlier, was HUGE in San Bernardino. And Denvers shop was on E Street. So. Cal. Datsun Pickups converged at Fontana Datsun and caravanned to E Street where they would "take over" the corner of 6th and E on Friday and Saturday nights. This club was TOO COOL, absolutely NO OTHER vehicles but Datsun pickups were "allowed" to park on 6th and E. Period. I remember that. It was kinda' like an "invitation" to be allowed to pull in there. Dave Bednarczyk has said for years the saying "Don't FLAKE rocks" which was a term that SCDP would yell at anybody entering or leaving 6th and E. This was a gravel corner and a burnout would result in dust and possible paint damage. And they MEANT it. So You might start seeing the connection here. What I DIDN'T KNOW was about the connection of the photos posted this morning on page 24. Get ready to be BLOWN away!! And YES, the shop in the background was on E Street!!! After You check those photos out, take a few minutes going back a few pages to see the beautiful bikes Denver built and other San Bernardino area photos. Those were VERY GOOD days!!! Enjoy!!!
