    Trouble-head Shovelhead Lowrider, King Queen, eyebrow over the lamp, wire fender struts, 4-speed with kicker, buckhorn.

    Warts and all, that is one fine motorcycle.

            Its just a shame for that bike to only have 2.7 miles on it....Just ain't right.....she needs to be ridden.

                I have absolutely no doubts at all that I have PUSHED my Sportster a lot further than that.

                Beautiful bike.

                  Well, here's another "be still my heart"...

                  Stopped into an Indy here for a quart of Spectro 75-140 and an oil filter.

                  Take a looky at their new project, a '47 knuckle. Project bike from a dude that ran out of money. They bought it and are going to bring it up as a mild bobber. Beautiful!
