The band joins Bruce Springsteen, ZZ Top, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Daughtry, The Black Crowes and more at the event running August 28-31.

As previously reported, the event will take place over four days at the Summerfest Grounds in Milkwaukee, WI. The outdoor venue has been dubbed Roadhouse at the Lakefront and is located just north of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Personally, I'm a bit of a Foo Fighters fan, and if I lived in the USA, I'd be straight over the August event.

Harley of the Past

Old motorbikes trace the past

Danny Dung and his girlfriend with an old BMW he has restored
An expat returns to homeland Vietnam to satisfy his hobby of collecting and restoring old motorbikes that have mesmerized him by shape and working sound.

Danny Dung thinks an old vehicle is closely connected to its owners, so he always tries to get as much information as possible about them when he is buying motorbikes.

He can live another life when he rides it, if he knows enough, he says.

Dung is known as one of the real fans of old motorcycles in Saigon.

It is his and his friends’ strong love for the machines that started the trend of buying classic bikes in the densely-populated city.

As a child in Vietnam, Danny Dung showed his interest in engines, but he could only afford old bicycles which he customized.

In the early 1980s, he made bikes with strange lights and sounds, which his friends still remember.

Danny Dung emigrated to the US in the late 1980s and took a course in mechanics.

He joined a Harley Davidson club in California.

“Perhaps Asian people are ashamed of their small body, so they don’t like big motorcycles.” There were only a few Asians in the club he says.

“For me, whenever I heard the sound a Harley made, I felt mesmerized by it and I decided to save up for one to join the club.”

Danny could afford to buy one second-hand.

He traveled and met many Harley fans in the US and found collecting old motorbikes was interesting.

Danny believes old motorbike lovers always have a philosophy about their hobby.

He says, “For me, old motorbike users are historians of mechanics because they keep track of human inventions.”

In the early 1990s, Danny returned to Vietnam for a visit.

A short time later, he and a few Vietnamese friends established an old Vespa club, the first in HCMC.

The old Vespa scooters came back to life again and became objects of pride.

Lots of youth, middle-aged people and foreigners came to Danny to find a bike.

When old Vespa scooters got hard to find, Danny started to look for old German BMW motorbikes from1945 to 1950.

It seemed like Danny waved a magic wand and turned piles of old engines into luxury toys for BMW lovers.

Saigon saw the reappearance of vehicles that produced powerful sounds.

“Most old BMW customers are foreigners living and working in Vietnam,” Danny said.

“Their big body is suitable for western people, and they are very expensive.

The cheapest one is over US$5,000.” His reputation traveled far and foreigners came from abroad to Danny to buy an old BMW.

Customers tried to find him because he could make old engines work as well as new ones.

He could also keep the original color and shape of the vehicles and add something decorative.

Then old BMWs became rare too, but Danny’s old motorbike passion was still strong and he saw a man on an old Harley Davidson.

He began another hunt and has bought a dozen of the classic American machines.

He spends his time and energy repairing and restoring them and sharing his interest with others.

Most people who come to buy old Harleys from Danny are foreigners.

Danny is willing to sell them to anyone who is passionate about old motorbikes and knows their value.

However, there is one exception - the Harley Davidson that was used to escort the former Saigon Regime’s president Nguyen Van Thieu.

One person offered US$10,000 for it, but Danny refused.

Apart from old Harleys, Danny has rare motorbikes like a German TWN and old cars like a Chevrolet Impala, a Camaro, and a 1955 Ford Customline.

Some film makers have rented Danny’s cars for movies, giving his old cars new lives and greater value.

Danny has also found a market for spare parts and set up a busy little factory for hand-made parts for the old motorbikes and cars.

As a result, he has an income to fund his passion for classic vehicles.

While everyone is moving forward with modern equipment, Danny and his friends are finding value in old machines.

He says, however, he doesn’t feel excluded from the modern flow because everyone has a past.

Checklist for buying a used Harley Davidson motorcycle

Ride to be free but pay expect to pay a bit more for that special Harley Hog

Things To Consider When Buying A Used Harley Davidson Motorcycle by : Low Jeremy

Buying a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle is fairly easy. All you have to do is pick a model, visit local dealers, test drive the Harley, and pay in financing or in full. However, buying a used Harley-Davidson motorcycle is a different story. Since it is already used, you should be more extra careful in closing your deal immediately. Here are the things you should consider if you want to buy used Harley-Davidson motorcycle:

Motorcycle history
Since you are not aware of things that have happened while you are yet the owner of the motorcycle, you need to know its history. Here you will learn if it was involved on accidents or have been submerged under water. These information are vital since you want to buy a good used Harley.

One of the reasons why you buy used Harley-Davidson motorcycle is because you want to save. If you are not aware of the current market value of the model you are buying, then it is time for you to make some research.

Overall Condition
Whether you are buying a 1978 or a 2005 model, you have to consider the overall condition of the motorcycle. Never disregard this since you will be the one who will take the whole responsibility of your purchase in case you have bought an ill-maintained motorcycle.

Check the exterior or the motorcycle as well as its performance. Like buying used cars, you should check everything and test-drive the vehicle. Check the sound and the engine. Check for rusts, dents, and other things that may affect the price of the Harley.

Since the mileage reading is the main basis of the price of the any type of used vehicle including the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you must check it and base it on the price being offered.

This may not be very important for some. But for those who want to get to see the used Harley motorcycle being sold, location is very important. If a Harley-Davidson seller happens to be near you, you can easily visit and have the deals made fast.

Owner’s background
This does not mean you have to investigate thoroughly the owner by hiring an investigator and make a report for you. All you have to do is to ask the seller questions related on how does he take care of the motorcycle while in his possession. Or, if you happen you have a chance to meet the owner, be observant on the things around him. Surely, you will get clear idea on how well he is as a motorcycle owner.
