This '53 Hydra-Glide was built by an artist who got into motorcycles in the 1960s. It was found in Florida and restored to it's current condition. A fine example of ingenuity and custom fabrication. The artists, Robert & Barbara Vanderlick were ornamental iron and sheet metal masters. They used a torch, welder, anvil and buffer to create a one-of-a-kind lead sled motorcycle. It's got 10,000+ miles on it. It's probably the only '53 FL with electric start?! A Lost Art . . . sort of . . . since some artists are still doing it. One of the more unique customs I've seen this year. Pretty darn classy I think . . .
Makes me want to suit up with my club collar shirt, studded gauntlets, jeweled kidney belt and riders cap . . . and ride to tonight's club meeting. Attendance is mandatory !
