Cars and Bikes kinda' go together...it's the speed!
Stripping cars and bikes of the non-critical parts...fenders, bumpers, lights, tops, or extra seats...is akin to buying horsepower, except it was free. These guys are stripped of every unnecessary part that didn't make them go, stop or steer. The '32 Ford looks like it has a Duvall style windshield.
