He drms in a jazz band at night, then tours motorcycle shops by day. "But who would have imagined," he says, "that I'd be doing it in Shanghai!" Woody, 59, is a fixture at the Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel lounge, but his real claim to fame is a motorbike with sidecar on display in the lobby. The Chang Jiang is a Chinese knockoff of the classic 1930s BMW R-71. During World War II, the Germans gave the design to Russia, which passed it to China. Woody fell in love with it on a 1998 trip to Beijing. He bought one, and another. Soon, he had shops refurbishing them. Now he's a top vendor of the bikes, which have a global cult following. In 2003 he sold two dozen for about $10,000 each. "It's not really a dream job, more like a nightmare," he quips http://www.vsidecars.com/home/current/page1/ . www.HammondCast.com *Jon Hammond is Host of daily CBS Radio show "Jon Hammond's Afternoon Slide" on KYCY/KYOU 1550 AM *Official Broadcast Home of the Oakland A's. *Note: SF's MAYOR WILLIE BROWN was in the house, San Francisco & Shanghai are Sister Cities! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJFWMjIMh9I
