Songs with the sounds of motorcycles and hot rods in them were popular when this single by record producer / television actor, Steve Rowland was released in the early 1960s. I really dig this record. The metallic clave sound was a nice touch. This single was released in May of 1963.
Here are a couple photos of my dad's old Triumph motorcycle. My uncle Fritz did the awesome pinstripe work. I can imagine my dad firing up his bike with my my on the back before I was conceived. Then things got serious, I came along and dad got rid of the bike.
