Bill Rowland Jr
with the spectacular new Premier Legal Racer
from Bill below:
attended a Supercross kickoff party Saturday night. I took the
new Premier 350 Honda to show the guys what Vintage racers looked
like. They still ride modern stuff. These were old friends I
raced with in the 90's that are not aware of vintage much. I
got a few " what the hell is that's" and who did the powder
coating? I explained what it was and that DaD had hand painted
it in the garage after he designed it and built it, then stripped
it and painted it. Then he rebuilt it and fine tuned the details.
All the while they were shooting pictures, flash flash, what's
this? Flash, pro tapers?....Cool, what're those shocks? Olin's
cool, who builds the engine, really your dad still is a motor
head? Those pipes are cool, oh he bent those? What's that gas
tank? 69' Honda cl70? Never seen that before how's he do this?
Your dad's still got it man where's he been? Retired in his
work shop I said. I said dads a 50's hot Rod dude and he has
these visions still of what his perfect racer would be from
the 60's when he raced. And then he goes to it."
