I caught local cannon-baller Chad Clapper(orange shirt) on his 45 at the run Tuesday. He was attempting a voyage to Spirit Lake for the afternoon. This motorcycle was found in a local basement, and resurrected by Chad himself - all while hangin' on to the originality of the find. I never see him on any other bike. He must like it?
Once you have a 45 . . . all you want to do is ride it !
Chad has a restoration business (classic cars, paint, welding and fabrication) on I-35 just north of Clear Lake, Iowa. It's a family business and they do great work.
