    in Automotive

    Special Guests: John Landstrom, owner of Blue Moon Cycle


    Ask anyone in the south about the highest quality antique motorcycle shop, and Blue Moon Cycle is bound to be at the top of that list. Since 1987, Blue Moon Cycle has maintained as an icon in the Atlanta, Georgia motorcycle scene. Over the years, Blue Moon’s day-to-day operations revolved around the sales and service of modern BMW motorcycles. Owner John Landstrom prides himself on having operating one of the smoothest-running BMW motorcycle franchises in the country, and the determination of his highly skilled staff to go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. In addition to selling late model machines, Blue Moon is well known as a parts distributor for antique European motorcycles dating back to the 1950s.  Most recently, John made the decision to sell his BMW dealership franchise and focus on strictly vintage motorcycles. On September 12th, 2015, Blue Moon Cycle officially re-opened to welcome its visitors to a showroom and museum where more than 100 vintage European machines are on display. Dozens of beautiful BMW, DKW, Horex, NSU, and Adler motorcycles are presented, as well as rare makes and models such as Bohmerland, Munch, Immer and Gnome Rhone. In addition to the collection of motorcycles available on display, John Landstrom is well known for his adventures with rare and exotic motorcycles around the globe. This week on Classic Chrome, we are excited to be joined by Mr. John Landstrom himself, who will be sitting down for an exciting hour of his motorcycle tales and more information about the Blue Moon Cycle collection.

    Classic Chrome with The Keating Wheel Company

    in Automotive

    Special Guests: Brian Keating, Gary Keating, and Robert Keating

    When looking at the market for pre-war motorcycles, it may seem that field was dominated by just a handful of manufacturers; Harley Davidson, Indian, Excelsior, Henderson. But, did you know that in these very early days of motorcycling, hundreds of motorcycle companies were in existence across the globe? Many of these manufacturers actually date back even earlier than American legends Harley Davidson and Indian! Dozens of these smaller companies were in existence here in the United States, with many of them located in the Northeast. While some of these companies were later purchased by the industry leaders, most of these early builders wound up closing their doors. The design elements of several of these defunct manufacturers still wound their way into the machines produced by the larger companies. Today, machines such as the Flying Merkel, Reading Standard, Minneapolis, Cyclone and several others are invaluable to cataloging the history of the sport and are usually only seen from behind plate glass in a museum.  On September 23rd, we are joined by three very special guests. Signing on for the cast on the first episode on our new network, we are honored to welcome the Keating Brothers: Brian, Gary, and Robert. The Keating brothers have an interesting link to the pioneering days of motorcycle development: enter the Keating Wheel Company. Amongst a long and incredible list of milestones, the Keating Wheel Company was the very first manufacturer in the United States to build a complete and running motorcycle (also called a motor bicycle)—MONTHS before Oscar Hedstrom and the Indian Motorcycle Company offered their first machine. Adding to the incredible history of the company, the Keating Wheel Company sued both Indian Motorcycle and Harley Davidson for patent infringement and design, and WON both cases.

    Classic Chrome with Ron Fellowes of Old Bloke on a Bike

    in Automotive

    Special Guests: Ron Fellowes, author of No Room for Watermelons, veteran motorcycle traveler


    Many people dream of one day getting on their motorcycle and setting out to see the world, but not enough of us get that opportunity. This week on Classic Chrome, we are honored to be joined by one man who took such a journey; aboard a now 105 year old motorcycle. In 2012, 68 year old Ron Fellowes of Brisbane, Australia set out to ride his 1910 Fabrique Nationale (FN) Four Cylinder motorcycle more than 9,000 miles from Kathmandu to the factory where it originated in Belguim. Over eight months, Ron’s journey took him through 15 countries and challenged every mechanical part on his machine as well as every fiber of his being. Through his journey, Fellowes traveled across some of the most hostile territory in the world while battling mechanical failures in the face of treacherous environmental conditions and dangerous bystanders. Ron’s pilgrimage brought him to some of the most beautiful parts of the globe, as well as brought him literally within sight of death. With no gears, pedal cranks, and lack of appropriate brakes, Effie, Ron’s 1910 FN made the trip ever more difficult. Despite these tough factors though, Ron and Effie traveled across the globe in the ultimate test of man and machine; a trip only made possible by his own dedication and the unending help of his wife Lynne and generosity of complete strangers.  After the trip was completed, Ron and Lynne compiled their documentation and commentary on the ultimate journey of a lifetime into an incredible book: “No Room for Watermelons: A man, his 1910 motorcycle, and an epic journey across the world”.

    Classic Chrome with Ted Doering of VTwin Manufacturing

    in Automotive

    For antique American motorcycle enthusiasts, there has always been and will always be a need for a source of parts to restore and repair their machines so that they can stay on the road and into the wind. With the price for OEM and NOS parts going through the roof in recent years and the falling amount of usable original pieces, enthusiasts are sometimes hard pressed to justify these rising costs in order to keep their machines operating. This week we are joined by one man who had a vision to start a business that would build faithful reproductions of the parts needed and wanted by American motorcyclists. Calling into the show live is Mr. Ted Doering, who is the man behind the largest parts supplier for antique American motorcycles in the world: V-Twin Manufacturing?. We will be discussing the finer points of the business and cover some of the great products offered by VTwin. In addition to talking about the business end of things, we will cover the famous Motorcyclepedia Museum? in Newburgh, New York that Ted is heavily involved in. This should prove to be an exciting and interesting look behind the scenes of an industry giant, and motorcyclists from all over the world are welcomed and encouraged to tune in to the program at 7pm Central.

    Classic Chrome with Ken Campbell of V8 Indian Project

    in Automotive

    Special Guests: Ken Campbell, builder and owner of the one-of-a kind V8 Indian


    Motorcyclists around the world can agree that while the various motorcycle manufacturers have provided an impressive and unique field of machines to pick from when purchasing, sometimes it is the homebuilt machines that outclass the line-production items. More often than not, it is these handcrafted pieces of art that are engineered and built in method that far surpasses that of a factory, and leaves enthusiasts scratching their heads and wondering just why the manufacturer never created such a piece. This week on Classic Chrome, we are joined by a man who has built such a machine. Old motorcycle fans can all appreciate the appeal of an Indian Four; the sound, aesthetic qualities and performance of what is essentially a small car engine in a motorcycle frame speak for themselves. But what if the Springfield, Massachusetts-based company had offered an eight cylinder model? Unfortunately, with the death of Springfield Indian in 1953, that question was unanswered. However, New Zealand motorcycle enthusiast Ken Campbell has just finished engineering and building the first example of what such a machine would resemble.

    Music Friday Classic. Alex Nestor R&B . Mitre crossover star on the way up.

    in Music

    I first met Alex Nestor and her music when she played with the Salvador Santana band in Los Angeles.  She has her own red hot blues and R&B band and plays with the Tang Gang and solo – just her and a keyboard.   A life of trial and triumph has shaped her unique sound filled with messages of love, positivity, and healing while channeling the retro soul artists of the 60’s and 70’s. She has recorded 12 albums, countless jingles, and been in over 25 theatrical productions, as well as working with established musicians such as Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, The Fifth Dimension, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  This is a classic interview  recorded in August last year, so don’t call in.  

     I have begun following the career of MITRE, a singer, songwriter and producer from Mexico City now living in Los Angeles.   He is building a fan base in English and Spanish in the US with constant gigs and online promotion. His music is a blend of feelings and sounds ranging from tango, pop, Mexican music, rock and street sounds. His first release, "Fugitivo" on iTunes in 2010 in Mexico, Japan, USA, Canada, and the UK exploded with fan clubs around the world.   Mitre is now touring to support his most recent album,  Deprador, in which  he is joined by the soaring voice of Irene Diaz. One of his hallmarks is collaborating with singers like Diaz, and opening his shows with the Catrina – the icon of the Mexican holiday,  Dios Los Muertos.  He is now playing in southern California, supporting his debut album in Mitre. This interview was conducted in January.

    Classic Chrome with Jim Petty of Gentleman's Choice Motorcycles

    in Automotive

    Special Guests: Jim Petty, three-time Motorcycle Cannonball rider, vintage collector, and owner of “Gentleman’s Choice Motorcycles”

    Looking back to the early days of motorcycling, one thing was clearly evident: the style and taste of both motorcycle design and their riders was exceptional. Enthusiasts in the early days of motorcycling could be found quietly motoring in a top hat and three piece suit, or tucked behind drop handlebars blasting around the track in leather helmets and wool sweaters. Simply put, the classiness of the era was unparalleled; it was, after all, the era of gentlemen. The attire and attitude of the Gentleman’s era has taken its own form in today’s motorcycle enthusiasts. This week, we at Classic Chrome are honored to be joined by one man who exemplifies the persona and era of a gentleman and his mount. Our guest this week is Jim Petty, who is the man behind “Gentleman’s Choice Motorcycles.” Petty is a dedicated lover of all types, brands, years, and sizes of motorcycles. Alongside his brother Steve, Jim has undertaken the restoration and preservation of many different motorcycles over the years, as well as promoting their avid use. “Gentleman Jim” is a three-time veteran of the coast-to-coast Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Race.
