Dougernaut and I took a cruise with some vintage dudes on our vintage Harley’s down to Dudley Perkins to see my homie Chris Perkins. Follow me?
Since 1914, Dudley Perkins has been holding it down. Here are a few of the different Harley engines they’ve collected over the years.
And here proudly displayed in the main entrance is one of the thousandth Harley’s in this huge 50,000 square feet building.
The beer collection alone is worth a visit. Sturgis 1987 Heavy Beer, a Daytona ‘86, Daytona ‘89.
Daytona ‘92, ‘93. Sturgis 1990! Wasted.
90th Anniversary Harley-Davidson MGD tall boys chillin’ above my head about to get crushed.
Also on display was their pin collection. Good pins rule!
And Dudley Perkins has been putting a new one out for every ride since the land before time.
I thought about smashing the glass for this vest.
This place is the raddest Harley-Davidson museum! It’s a mix of Harley, San Francisco-heritage, motorcycle culture.
And it just keeps going. This section is straight memorabilia.
Oh yeah! I forgot about the walls. These photos were INSANE.
You can literally spend a few hours going from the first floor to the second floor in the stairwell just peeping art.
Yet another dope vest.
Let’s check out some bikes! I don’t think this one is for sale.
Or this one.
But all the new 2011’s are in and selling fast.
Today, you’d be hard pressed to find a Harley in the Bay that wasn’t bought at Dudley Perkins. DP is the first Harley shop west of the Mississippi. On shit like this I stick with the originals. DP is as classic as it gets.
Meet Chris Perkins. We’ve been friends since we were kids. He’s a stand-up guy. And lucky for you, he’ll give you the best deal. Now is the one-time you can name drop Joshy D!
But before I leave my newly adopted second home, I’ll sit in this comfortable leather massage chair and talk shop with Doug.
And maybe play just one more game of ping pong.
I’ll definitely take a photo with Chris!
Dudley Perkins is at 333 Corey Way, South San Francisco, CA (650) 737-5467. Have a great Tuesday!
