A friend of mine in NJ owns a company supplying vehicles for movie shoots, TV ads etc in New York.
He has about 300 vehicles--cop cars, TV vans, trucks etc etc.
Up until about 5 years ago he had no motorcycles so he used mine.
It was very interesting and quite lucrative (about $500 per bike per day).
Unfortunately he must have thought that I was getting too much money because he has now bought a dozen bikes and I only get called on for very specialized bikes--such as a sidecar outfit.
The copyright situation is a hot topic--Triumph in particular are very hot on it.
Virtually the first thing the art guys did to my bikes on a shoot was to tape over the Triumph tank badges.
Being retired I used to go along and look after the bike9s) on the shoot.
Jeez!--these guys certainly know how to look after themselves.
I remember one shoot in Brooklyn--I had to be there with the bike by 5 a.m.
At the edge of the shoot was the food---three Michelin starred chefs cooking omelettes etc to order.
I was regarded as part of the crew so it was free food and drink all day long.

Miss Penny has been a cycle [***].......

Many moons ago, in the far off foreign land of Californicatia, an ad appeared on the SF Craigslist:

"Wanted: old vintage motorcycles for a photo shoot!"

I replied with a photo of her, and the following message: "Hi! I'm Joe and this is my motorcycle. She's into long rides, gas tasting, and old rock and roll. If you'd like to use her, let me know, I am her pimp."

They replied, and a month or so later I was able to fulfill two dreams at once! We did the shoot, and a year later she was all over European ads for Jack & Jones, a clothing brand. (She was the pretty one with the orange tank- she did look nice indeed!l

But two dreams at once you may ask? Certainly a photo shoot with the motorcycle and models is one, but the other dream? Now we need to delve a bit deeper into one of the past lives of a Deadstiffcatt......

Being a young Catt growing up in the early seventies off of Colfax Avenue in Denver, I used to hop on the bus or bicycle and head a few miles to Caboose Hobbies to get bits for building HO scale buildings. As I left the relative insecurity of east Colfax Ave. and got closer to downtown, things got progressively shadier, from grocery stores and hardware places the scenery changed into bars and titty joints- often with scantily clad ladies (I use the term loosely) out front, usually under the watchful eye of some big fella' with a gold front tooth and a big straw hat sitting in the driver's seat of an outlandishly painted Cadillac. At some point in time I realised that this MUST be the life, and figured if I ever got the chance to be a pimp, I'm takin' it!

So dream number two also fulfilled at the same time with this photo shoot! But alas, the joke wound up being on me. It was a shoot for men's clothing, and all the hot models were guys! Ya wins some and ya loses some, I guess...........
