More Pics from Bruce - he was rearended!

It could have been much worse. Here is his story and the pictures of the damage. The 33 is fine, if you don't count the hitch.

Was leaving the Escondido CA car cruzin grand event last week. Stopped at a red light when BANG. A Honda accord and a Nissan Titan hit me in the rear. Crushed the bike and shoved it part way through the teardrop trailer. The good news---E Hansens trailer hitch broke at the small upper mounts but not the big mountings, this let the hitch rotate down and grounding the hitch with trailer attatched stopping with 1/2 inch of space between the trailer jack and the 33. Not one mark on the car.

Not good, but of course could have been much worse.

How could you not see that yellow!!?

That really sucks!

Maybe they were blinded by the brightness of the trailer, or awed by the awesomeness of that bike. Or just idiots.

Please tell me more about that bike. Is it an old bike restored to match, or is it a new custom build?

This is terrible. After seeing Bruce's '33 in person, I can understand the people being distracted by such a great looking car! It is beautiful.

Very happy to hear that Bruce is OK and the damage was limited to the bike and trailor.

I've had near misses a number of times in my Cobra. I finally put on a third brake light and a flasher unit that flashes the brake lights for three seconds and then goes solid. I have the brightest LED brake lights I could find and then added a pair behind the rear grill I built on the 33 just for this reason.

Sorry to hear this happened. Glad it wasn't worse and all is well with Bruce.
