Mike Vils "The Brute" 1955 Triumph 500

First version, late 1960's before the accident.

Lots of incorrect information in this article!

1971 Motorcycle World Choppers

1969 Cycle Guide

This last version is my favorite. Mike still has a bike shop in SoCal called Fass Mikey's Motor Shop (562) 756-5013 and he was featured in the 40th anniversary issue of Street Chopper magazine last year.

This last pic is from a 1981 issue of SuperCycle and in the feature the Brute is for sale for $2,500!!! Wonder what happened to it after it sold???
