That 70's Show

I have this photo on my desk at work. It is a picture of me and my wife taken in June of 1972. It reminds me of "That 70's Show" and I thought the Humor forum would be a good place to display it. And yes, my wife's name is Donna.
Anyone else have some old pictures they want to share? Should be good for a laugh.

Edit: I added a recent photo of us for comparison.

The Times They Are a Changin'

Cool tread!!... They do still say "cool" don't they??.. I'll contribute...I was there or so the police records say..

here are 2 worthy shots .. The first is around 1972, I guess.. I must have been 17-ish? That's me on the left.. with HAIR. That period of my life has all but disappeared into a cloud of sweet smelling smoke.. and BTW.. that red eye was not flash induced.

the second shot is about 2 years later in 74-ish when I had crossed over body and soul to the dark side.. motorcycling. Life has never been the same..

BTW.. RickD and Flyboy... Those are some GREAT shots!!!

Great Jim Morrison pose Rick.

Here's mine. First is circa 1967, checking under the hood of a Mustang (I can't figure out how to get it open). Second is riding bitch with my dad on an old Honda. Third is riding bitch with my dad (1976) on his REAL DEAL custom Triumph 750 chopper. No OC chopper shit either. And last but not least, my first aspirations in 1983 as a heavy metal lead guitarist. Note the Olivia Newton John juxtaposed against Iron Maiden and David Lee Roth.

One of my strokers

This was a 55 Cubic Inch sportster that I'd stroked to 77 Cubic inches which was bigger than a 74 in those days. I built a bunch of 96 inch 74's also. Seems like I was always working on another bike. I'd finish it, sell the old one and ride it while I built another. I think that is wife #2 going in the door in her miniskirt. That would date the picture I'd think to the early 70's or late 60's.



This stroker was one hard machine to kick start also. Everything ran off a magneto, no kill switch, I'd just have to kick it into gear and grab brakes and pop the clutch to stop it. So much valve overlap I had a hard time getting a compression stroke to start the damn thing. Sifton cam, S&S flywheels and rods. dytch barrels and heads. S&S carb. In a stright line, that thing would move.
