Blue Berry Hill


Blue Berry Hill, originally uploaded by Richard Grabbe.

This is the interior of one of the many rooms that Blue Berry Hill has to offer, it is a St. louis mainstay with some of the best burgers in town. Whenever anyone comes to visit from out of town I take them here. St louis's very own legendary Chuck Berry still plays here once a month, and the restaurant/nightclub/bar has so much rock and roll history in that it is a must see if your ever in the area. My picture is shitty but it does show some of the charm. In A world Filled with so much chain restaurant and walmart mega stores its nice to know that something real is still thriving. Here is the address
6504 Delmar in The Loop, St. Louis, MO 63130 • (314) 727-4444

I had to make it really low to accomidate the petcock that literally fits like a glove between the heads. Unlike all of my other builds, the parts on this bike are shoehorned in everywhere with very minimal tolerances between each other. I used to build with more clearance so that I could be sure that everything fit, but now I am taking more chances to get a better fit and a tighter, neater look.
