OLD STYLE WEEKEND A-BOMBERS 2012 DEVILS PEAK UNAUTHORIZED BUT GOOD
The club was founded in 1993 by two nice young men: Nick "Camtwister"
Henrix & Jack "Fearless" Baymoore. At that time C.H. was building/driving a
Ford "29 Roadster and J.B was building/driving a Harley Davidson "46
Knucklehead. They were both fascinated of the American post-WW II styling
of motorcycles and hot rods and also liked the style of clubs that came out
of this era. Motorcycle Clubs like Boozefighters and Red Rambler Motorcycle
Club alongside of the Californian hot rod clubs. They really liked the
"home-coming bomber-tailgunner" kinda style. J.B. had an "old style" racing
sweater made for him. White with black arms, just like in those old pics,
with Harley-Davidson on the chest and their new logo with the new-named
club, A-BOMBERS, on the back. C.H. also made some cool tight t-shirts with
the A-BOMBERS logo on the back. This is when the first rumbles started to
echoe from the Exhaustpipes of an
The name A-BOMBERS came from the word A-BOMB which of course meant Atomic
Bomb, but the main reason these guys chose it was in the meaning of a
highly tuned old car; a HOT ROD ! Which you can call the old
Harley-Davidson Texas strokers, as well...
A few years later they started to think of organizing a meeting for people
that liked the same kind of style, music and vehicles. They also hooked up
ol friend Uno, who loved the style and also had some nice sets of wheels.
Together they planned the first Old Style Weekend. It was supposed to be a
small friendly gathering with a few people. On the Friday theyd just sit by
the fire or sat by the beach, sipping Pina Coladas and on the Saturday
there was a bigger party with about 60 people.
THOSE WERE THE DAYS !!
Today the meeting gathers thousands of people and of course that smooth
first day is gone by far. The great thing is though, that this is an event
that from the beginning had no intention of growing or being BIG TIME. It
was, and still is, a great happening with nice, friendly people and
fabulous cars and bikes. Only BIGGER ! And No spectactors, only
It may be important to know that the club has no "president" or anything
like that. We are just friends with common interests and just like to have
a good time, party and drive our cars and bikes.
See you out there !!
