All motorcycle shows should be ride in . . . If you can't ride it at least 150 miles to the show, you can't enter the thing. It's like jewelry you can't wear - what's the point? I spotted this panhead at the Sidehack Saloon this year. I did a double take, we walked back and saw it was one of those motorcycles that has evolved to suit the rider. Me and Joe had just come from a bike show where we picked apart a bunch of shiny bikes getting fake accolades - they had non-functional shit all over them - we were in a feisty mood when we saw this - A real custom chopper with vintage and modern components to get you there . . .and it was functional to the owner's needs. A real show & go vintage Panhead chopper.
Vintage one-piece kicker, Linkert filter, relay . . . spare belt (see it?), tool bag, electronics . . .this guy is a god !
Above: Star hub . . . with a PM disc brake. Frisco'd tank, relocated filler, Super E, auto advance . .
Above: Big Box on the back for stuff, extra tail lights (for max exposure), tail pipe extensions (to keep them from filling with water, and keep carbon off your gear), deer alerts, rear belt drive, primary open belt . . . but he still likes his jockey shift ! My kinda guy - awesome bike ! I couldn't find the owner, but I really wanted to tell him how much I liked his old panhead . . .
