“2000 Showtime Rigid”
This was David Mann’s last painting. The story behind it is Mondo Porras (the “Godfather of the Chopper”) built the red bike he is riding in the painting for the 30th Anniversary of Easyriders Magazine and the Orange Panhead in the painting is a bike that Mondo and the late great Denver built 30 years before the shoot back in 1971! Easyriders wanted both bikes to be in the photo shoot, so Mondo restored the Orange Panhead and took both bikes over to Easyriders for the shoot. Little did he know that at the shoot, Artist Dave Mann was going to make an iconic painting of the bikes!

Quoteing Phantom from Easyriders:
” This bike is the embobiment of Easyriders past, standing strong and proud! The Red ghost-flamed Easyriders 30th Annniversary chopper features a collection of what we believe are some of the components available today. Beginning with Denver’s 43-degree rake and 3 1/2 inch-stretch rigid frame with a hidden oil tank in the rear fender, and a 16-inch-over springer, the bike was fitted with a gleaming 106 cubic inch Panzer powertrain by Accurate Engineering, Baker 6 speed transmission and Primo BruteIV belt drive. This mix of classic and high tech continues with an ART hydraulic clutch and the latest brakes and controls by Performance Machine. A one-off headlight was made by Joel Felty of Headwinds, Gary at Pure Choice hand-made the solid oil and brake lines, and Denny Bloom of Kreative Kolors created the glorious Easyriders 30th Anniversary paint scheme.”
This bike was originally owned by Dave Nichols of Easyriders and was featured in the 30th Anniversary EASYRIDERS Magazine and a subsequent issue of BIKER Magazine.
