Years ago, Noot's name was in Easyriders Magazine (Nov. 1976) when he did the motor work on this Pan/Shovel Stroker Custom built by Boyd Dingman of Charles City, Iowa. An 86" motor was a big deal back then - and this thing ran pretty hard. I picked up this un-circulated issue since he didn't have a copy. Dingman still builds, paints and drag races his custom motorcycles - and it makes you wonder if this project had been a failure - would Boyd (or Noot for that matter) still be doin' it ? As it turned out - they both are still bitten by the bug !
