    I think there are already a couple of threads for this but until they fill up with pics I'm browsing Flickr.

    EDIT: Here's a good one: NAHBS 2013 Day 1.

    I forgot my camera for day 1 but hopefully tomorrow. I did take this with my phone at the Hampsten booth. It was ridden to a win in some race in Italy like 25 years ago. The rider of the bike (Andy in case anyone didn't know) was also there, looking svelte and fit and looking like he could climb right back on this bike and take off up the Gavia at high speed again. His time was monopolized and I'm sure he gets tired of meeting endless nobodys like myself but he sure didn't look like it. Great fun was had by all. Pics later today of the bikes I really like, which are too numerous to mention but the Gaulzettis are awesome, as we all know and I really still have a crush on the Merlin Extralight which has been brought back to life in modern form. More later.

    Saab if you go by the Hampsten booth do a 180 and take some pictures of Ben's Argonaut (directly across from Hampsten's booth). Its an awesome bike.

    I will hopefully take a lot of cool pics today. There's tons of eye candy and a lot of it from folks who are not as well known or active in these parts. Great bikes to see and great folks to meet. Kind of a sausage fest though.... Where are the dancing girls and stripper poles in the booths? I thought this would be like the Tokyo Motor Show... ;-)

    What's the bar wrap on the Ellis Strada Fango?

    Are those Jack Browns (tires) on the DeSalvo, what are the brakes, and is there Ballers-approved clearance?

    Was Andy's Huffy built by Land Shark?

    Awesome to see so many machines set up for berserker riding, and not worrying so much about the scale.

    Many, many bikes there are Ballers ready bikes. It is a theme of the show. Lots of large clearance bikes. Lots of disc brakes (necessary or not is not a debate I will engage in but there are lots of disc bikes at the show). Lots of fat tires.

    Lots of wooden bikes. Not sure I get that. But it is a novelty to look at.

    Not sure about the Huffy but I've heard it is a Land Shark.

    John Slawata did build a bike/bikes for Andy then. He had what I think is the same bike, in his Landshark booth at NAHBS in Portland a few years back.

    It's a brand new prototype (he has 3 of them in the booth).

    He's still performing R&D on it, and one of the three is slated for stress testing, one will be a permanent show bike, and the other will be Nick's personal field test platform.

    Cool. The spine on the chainstay and fork bring to mind an Extreme Power.

    Looks so clean!

    Cool shots so far. Anyone have anything Cherubim? Always love their crazy yet elegant builds.

    Thanks for posting Andy's historic Landshark. I've seen pics of it hundreds of times but I never tire of looking at photos of it again.
