Guess where. Gary really downplayed the length of his endurance runs.
It's show 'n Tell Time.
These pics aren't too sharp, but then again, neither am I.
They were taken in about l969. While going to college, I got a part time job
with an advertising agency and they conned me into dressing up like the
DeeBurger Clown, an epicly popular figure in Utah at that time, and touring
the various Dee Restaurants to celebrate the clown's birthday. This was
before McDonald's became hugely successful, and the DeeBurger Clow was as
popular in Utah as Ronald McDonald would ever be.
My VW bus bit the dust a day or so before, and this Harley was my only
transportation. It caused a stir all over Salt Lake, as I couldn't resist
cruising the entire town before heading off the do my clown thing. Kids all
over town were going whack when I rode by. Adults nearly drove off the road.
The DeeBurger Clown was on his Harley out to rape & pillage. Marlon Brando
was a wimp. Hollister was a safe haven compared to the havoc "The Clown" was
going to drop on Salt lake City. I had the Wild Ones surrounded. Out
numbered, Out nastied.
When I showed up at the restaurant to do my PR task, the establishment's
manager went nuts. Didn't like the image. DeeBurger Clown on a Harley (even
a tiny little scrambler) wasn't what he had in mind. After about 4 hours, he
fired me. But I did get to take one of the waitresses , called Dee Dollys,
home with me. Ad agency wouldn't pay me, but I didn't mind.
Long live the 60's.
Anyone have a clue what model Harley this was. I bought it from my roommate
for about $500. He needed beer & skiing money.
