Jeff and I returned to San Francisco to rescue the 1946 Velocette GTP from the gallery where the bike had been on display with other unfinished projects. It was like a two-week vacation for the bike. From here the bike will go back onto the work-bench.

The show was in the second floor of this building

The benefits of returning during daylight hours were being able to see the art and motorcycles, as well as to speak with Jason, the mastermind behind the show. One of the things I learned from Jason was that there was a theme to the art accepted for the show. It was anatomy, body parts, taxidermy etc. Ah hah. Things made much more sense.

Although there was no crowd, my meager photographic skills were challenged by the light of the setting sun. (I just had to include that disclaimer…)

The gallery is a busy place.  Jason is in the middle.

Someone even drew my picture in the square that was designed to hold a photograph

In the futures the gallery will have a few more art shows. If all goes as planned the art will be combined with a few motorcycles. Art and motorcycles is a great combination. I look forward to seeing more.
