Cousin Dan's Knucklehead

i posted a picture of the incredible green knucklehead toghether with max's blue knucklehead a while ago cause i thought those bikes might have loved each other if they've ever met...
then i find a picture of "another" knucklehead on the Cycle Zombies blog which turns out to be exactly the same bike before it was chopped in the late 50s!!

my pen-pal davey (http://radballs.blogspot.com/) told me the story and let me post those awesome pictures of one of the sickest bikes ever. it was owned by cousin dan back in the 50s / 60s and he chopped and modified the bike as seen below. i dunno what kinda carb he was running on it and it's really hard to tell from the picture so if anyone has an idea please let me know.

thank you davey!

Ton Steine Scherben

One of the best german bands ever. this is one of my favorite songs called "Macht kaputt was euch kaputt macht" meaning "destroy what destroys you". it was released in 1970.







lyrics:

radios are running, TVs are running,
movies are running, cars are running,
buying houses, buying furniture,
buying journeys, buying factories,
for what?

chorus:
destroy what destroys you!
destroy what destroys you!


trains are rolling, dollars are rolling,
people are drudging, machines are running,
building factories, building machines,
building engines, building guns,
for whom?

chorus:

destroy what destroys you!
destroy what destroys you!


bombers are flying, tanks are rolling,
cops are beating, soldiers are dying,
defending directors, defending shares,
defending the law, defending the government,
from us!

chorus:

destroy what destroys you!
destroy what destroys you!
