Watching the Saturday morning weather forecast for a mix of sun clouds and monsoonal moisture which was calling for a chance of rain in the Inland Empire, I was considering what to bring with me for my trip out to Beaumont to see what was going on at the 2nd Annual Top Line Industrial Supply Car and Bike Show.
I decided to pack along some rain gear for me and a few plastic bags for my camera just in case. As I got near San Bernardino I started getting a few drops on my face shield. But nothing to be concerned about.
In Beaumont I turned right on First Street and made my way to California Street where Top Line Industrial is located not readily visible from the round as the facility is surround by a gray stone wall but once you see the inside parking lot you got see about one hundred cars, trucks ,motorcycles and vendors.
They layout was set up different this year the motorcycles were in the front of the parking lot instead up by the wall at the back of the lot. Up front were a few nice custom built bikes a few owned by Sam Baldi and built by Jimmy Todorovitch you might have seen some of them at the various motorcycle shows and publications.
Among the center row of car among next to some trucks was a Ducati V twin motorcycle owned by Tim Sparks from the Coachella Valley area. This bike started out as a 2002 998R and was built into a 998RS. The bike has many nice features such as carbon fibre body parts and engine components.
Out in the main parking lot were a few more custom and unique motorcycles.
There was Bad Co. with a custom Screaming Eagle touring motorcycle.
Next to them was Terry Talkington with his 1968 Triumph Tiger.
Moving down the line there John Edward Suzuki drag racing bike.
Next up was a cool bike a 1965 Military FL Harley-Davidson owned by Bill Lamb, the bike is Ninety-five percent original. 1965 was a transitional year last year of the Pan Head engine and first year for electric start.
A very unique vehicle was up next a Piaggio Scooter with Flash Gordon inspired body work the bike is owned by Steve Hurley and called the decopod.
Set up around the lot were a few vendors including German American BBQ, Eat’em up truck catering, Gold Star Dads, Carol’s Kitchen, Superadiomix.com, Mark’s Airbrush-Artism and Lawson Custom Colour Coating who I got to pose for a group photo.
Inside the building was the customer service area full of things that people who are into cars and bike would enjoy, tools, parts, oils and other chemicals. Top Line Industrial provides a range services to help consumers, retailers and commercial businesses run better, I saw on the wall a display of different hose types and fittings that can be made on site while you are waiting.
