#50 Rowdy Schenck

Carlsbad, NM

1948 Indian Chief

I was born in Midland TX. Currently lives in Carlsbad, NM. We have lots of bats in the caves around here.
I started riding motorcycles out on the ranch where I grew up in 1959, it was an Allstate that my neighbor owned. He had put an Indian 16″ rear wheel on it so as to better his ability to irrigate the fields. It was hard to shift, shifter on the left handlebar twist grip, so I just left it in third and hauled as. In 1964 I bought my first scoot, a 160 Honda CB. I have not been without a motorcycle ever since. These old motorcycles are my inspiration
