Favorite Old Dude, Sonny Rogers

  Not many people would disagree with me when I say Sonny is a KC legend. He has been around hot rods and sickles since the 60's. Went out to his place this morning to look at a flathead he has for sale. About shit myself at the wall of vintage plaques hes got hanging up. Then he went and showed me about 50 more he can't fit. So we start talking chopper shit and he goes in this little cabinet and starts pulling out all his old chopper parts he never got rid of. Needless to say I was stoked. Brand new Triumph petcocks, 2 new lucas taillights and a bunch of other stuff all coming home with me. Here is a pick of him with my boy and the article from Roths Chopper Magazine. Sonny's shotgun bike was in it. Fucker had a double barrel shotgun that worked built into the sissybar. Crazy mother for sure. I bet all those guys from Cali about shit at that. It was like the old west still. He also ran all of Ray Farners WOW shows for years in KC. You should see his shop it is full of cool hot rod shit. When I go back to pick up all my stuff I will post a part 2 to this story.
