Parking Lot Bike of the week
Shocking, right? Shockingly beautiful is what I say. This chopper love child of Paul Ponkow, owner of Bones Legacy in Las Vegas, and the original Freight Train, a creation of the late, great builder, Denver Mullins of the original Denvers Choppers in San Bernardino, California, came to be because of the first words you see on Bones Legacy’s website ─ “Preserving The Kulture.” Obviously, Paul’s got his feet firmly planted in the past, but his mind, scratch that, his whole being is set on the future. A future that doesn’t let the past stay in the past, but brings it to the forefront as fresh as a proverbial daisy.

Oh, introductions can be so tedious and usually the introductee’s name is lost to me as it’s being said. But sometimes, like with this time warp Berdoo chopper named Rose Mary that Michael Barragan of Evil Spirit Engineering in Burbank, California, built for our viewing pleasure, I couldn’t forget his or the bike’s name if I tried. The look of chopper shock and awe is tattooed onto my brain. And, if I was told Michael found this bike under a tarp sometime in the late ‘70s and had just carefully preserved it since, I wouldn’t doubt it. I’d just think, “Wow! Look at that thing!” followed by something Samuel L. Jackson is famous for saying.
