Tinsley's Harley trike was famous. Gene Dion used to race
Italian bikes, and Gonar may have had the largest collection of Italian
and Brit racing bikes and Indians in various barns, all disassembled
and missing one or more major components which were no longer made or
later Mad Murray the Toad had a 106cc Sears (actually
a Benelli, with the Sears logo). Of course many other Tunas own
many other bikes, but these are some of the more notable rides &
It should be noted that although the Hell's Tunas have never officially
one brand of motorcycle, the Schmedley Gurdley is the brand favored by
majorty of club members. There are some exceptions of course -- the
Miami, FL, chapter is more than a little partial to BMW's. However
there are few rides that can compare with the Schmedley Gurdley Model
37,000, powered by two atom bombs. Power like that between your legs
of these Japanese crotch rockets with scary macho names seem kind of
puny and lame.
