CLASSIC CHROME - FORMING A CLUB: AMAC SMOKEY MOUNTAIN CHAPTER
Special Guests: Steve Alexander, President, AMCA Smoky Mountain Chapter Michael Goehring, Founding Member, AMCA Smoky Mountain Chapter Keith Kizer, Executive Director, Antique Motorcycle Club of America
One of the most important things about owning an antique motorcycle is the chance to interact with others who have the same passion as you do. And what better way to accomplish that than to join one of the largest old motorcycle clubs in the world: The Antique Motorcycle Club of America. The AMCA provides a nationwide network of old bike enthusiasts who are looking to interact and further the good, clean sport of vintage motorcycles. In addition, the AMCA is also comprised of smaller regional chapters of the club that allow you to meet the people in your area that share your passion. But, what if you don’t have a chapter near you and still want to have an AMCA affiliation? Our guests this week have answered just this question by forming the newest affiliate of the AMCA: the Smoky Mountain Chapter.

The auction produced several record sales prices, such as $650,000.00 for the 1907 Harley Davidson Strap-Tank, and $775,000.00 for the ex-Steve McQueen 1915 Cyclone.

CLASSIC CHROME - CANNONBALL HANDBUILT SHOW
Special Guests: Lonnie Isam Jr, Event Promoter: Motorcycle Cannonbal Jason Sims, Event Staff: Motorcycle Cannonball Alan Stulberg, Revival Cycles
In the early 1900's one man was the name in transcontinental record-setting motorcycle and automobile runs. This man crossed the wild American landscape numerous times in feats of stamina, skill, and devotion unlike any other. Imagine riding coast-to-coast aboard a 1915 Indian, or 1923 Ner-A-Car in just mere days, when there were no real paved roads. More than 100 transcontinental speed records for both autos and cars are attributed to Erwin "Cannonball" Baker.
Since 2010, a world-class racing event has taken the motorcycle world by storm. This event is the ultimate challenge of man and machine, and is a tribute to "Cannonball" Baker's record-setting cross-country trips. The Motorcycle Cannonball is the brainchild of Lonnie Isam, Jr, and has been undertaken by a field of enthusiasts three separate times now. In 2010, motorcycles manufactured prior to 1916 crossed America from Kitty Hawk, NC to Santa Monica, CA. 2012 saw the second running of the event from Newburgh, NY to San Francisco, CA for machines built prior to 1930. Last September, pioneering enthusiasts from all over the world conquered America once again, traveling from Daytona Beach, FL to Tacoma, WA aboard machines built prior to 1937.
Dating all the way back to the early days of motorcycling, enthusiasts have always been drawn to the raw energy, speed and horsepower of racing. Throughout the first couple decades of the 1900’s, motorcycle racing was held on oval plank tracks, known as board tracks. The motorcycles which ran on these tracks were the ultimate in stripped-down powerhouses, with no brakes, and only a direct drive system in place of a transmission. Races were held all over the United States to the delight of crowds everywhere. Unfortunately, the danger of these races was all too real. After multiple horrific accidents resulting in the death of riders and spectators alike, board track racing was banned in the United States. While the machines survived, the sport of board tracking was seemingly gone forever; that is, until recently, when a group of enthusiasts have banned together to reinvigorate the lost art of board track racing. Held on dirt tracks instead of lumber ovals, the machines are still flying around in a display of raw power to the delighted smiles of crowds. This week, we at Classic Chrome have the pleasure of speaking with a few of the brave individuals keeping this high-octane sport alive and well. Interviewing Matt Walksler, noted builder, restorer, and award-winning racer, and Brittney Olsen, noted restorer and the only woman successfully competing in this dangerous sport!
Join us on March 4th, 2015 at 7pm Central as Classic Chrome interviews world-renowned painter John Dills of Dills Paintworks. Dills’ work has been featured all over the world, from late model customs to the rarest of rare antique motorcycles. Most notably, Dills provides all of the paint work for the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, North Carolina.
Also on the program, tune in as we interview Kevin ‘Teach’ Baas of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In addition to being a master fabricator, custom bike builder, and metalworking artist, Baas has been the main man behind an incredible youth outreach program at John F. Kennedy High School in Bloomington, MN for more than a decade. The Kennedy High School Chopper Class teaches students the art of building a custom motorcycle from the ground up, and has proven to be incredibly successful.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchalk on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST is San Fancisco jewerly artist, Sarah Graham.
Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom or by sending a message to Whaley Studio's via Facebook Instgram or Twitter.
By incorporating innovative materials with her exceptional design sense, Sarah Graham creates jewelry that is unlike anything else; organic, textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine, yet substantial; unique, yet universal in its appeal. The natural inspiration behind the jewelry – whether cast directly from Jacaranda Pods and decayed wood or rendered in wax from a microscopic view of single cell marine organisms – gives her designs a texture and feel that makes them infinitely wearable. But it is the matte black finish of oxidized cobalt chrome juxtaposed with 18k yellow, rose and white gold, set with colored diamonds, that is its’ most eye-catching element.
Sarah’s statement making jewelry is exciting and elegant with a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio every year. This, along with Sarah’s unique combination of business and retail experience, traveling, a rigorous apprenticeship and her dedication to providing amazing customer service to her clients, ensure many more years of success for Sarah Graham Metalsmithing.
Sarah is currently vice president of the American Jewelry Design Council. She currently resides in San Francisco , CA and works with a staff of seven at her Dog Patch neighborhood studio.

In November of 1947, 8 young men came together with a passion for both speed and the custom culture of cars and motorcycles. They soon formed the Oilers Car Club, and became heavily involved in the newly-formed National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA). OCC President Jim Nelson and partner Dode Martin remained heavily involved with the OCC and later formed the infamous Dragmasters Company. Moving forward to 2008, another group of custom car and motorcycle enthusiasts gathered together and reignited the club with the help of Jim Nelson. The new Oilers members are 10 highly respected members of the motorcycle and car community from both the East and West coast, and are dedicated to furthering the passion that drove the original members. Every October, the OCC hosts the legendary “Race of Gentlemen” on the beaches of Wildwood, New Jersey, where spectators and entrants are treated to the sight of vintage automobiles and cars racing each other up and down the beach. The motorcycles and automobiles are all pre-war vintage, and the owners are hand selected to further the slogan of the event: “When guys were gentlemen and cars were king!”
