If you grew up as an American boy in the 1970s, there's a fair chance you owned a Fonzie doll with motorcycle. To a kid under 10 back in those days, there was no doubt about it: Arthur Fonzarelli was cool. After all, he wore a leather jacket, rode a motorcycle, and told his enemies to "sit on it."
Of course, in the real world, when you wore a leather jacket, rode your bike to school, and then told the local bully to "sit on it," you got the snot beaten out of you.
Thank Arnold's, then for Daytona Beach Bike Week, that annual event harkening to 1937, letting hundreds of thousands let out their inner Fonzies for 10 days at a time.
Or try to.
In the gallery "Daytona Motorcycle Madness, 1948," we can see just how tough it really is to pull of the Fonzie thing, leather jacket or no.
Because, as the guy in the photo above can attest, ouch!
