Even the personal styling
is very old style here at the A-Bombers. All and sundry come sporting distinct 30s to 50s garments, tattoos and hairdos, period correct to the dot of an i. Starting with the pomade to keep their hair from fluttering in the breeze and not stopping at the last, painstakingly parkerized washer to keep their rides from falling apart. Our friend Totte from Göteborg is the shining example, having transported his Panhead hill climber plus equipment on the side car frame of his Knucklehead all the way to Backamo. You’re the man, Totte! But there’s more: whole families use the summer day out to enjoy the sight and rumbling sound of American hotrods, there’s cool beer standing in for the cancelled-because-of-fear-of-forest-fires steaks from the vintage barbecues. And there’s the crowds, pushing the bands, stomping the floor, flat-out mad!
