American with Brit Style Twist







This is my friend Chris's chopper. He was wanting to change it up a bit. So to give it that skinny look this what I came up with.

I had a set of new old stock Bates fork covers laying around. So with that said major modifications on the FX frontend were about to take place. I modified the lower tree and the lower legs went on a extensive diet. To take up the space between the forkcover and upper tree I'm a machined out some aluminum spacers on the lathe. Chris had already modified the top tree by cutting all the junk off of it and smoothing it out it's ready for a good polishing now and this is what we ended up with.

FIRST RIDE ON THE PAN FREAKING A ! ! !

video


Nothing like that shit eating grin you get as you roll down the road on the first ride on your Panhead....
After five years of gathering parts and pieces I rode her down the road. Need to get the lights finished up and do a little fine tuning then its time to ride this thing on up outta here. Nothing beats the sound of a pan especially when its yours. A big thanks to everyone who helped along the way...and a special thanks to Ratpan,Zucco and my hometown boy Rob. Grey beard knowlege goes along way especially when starting with nothing but bits and pieces. And of course to my wife Dee for not letting me sell it numerous times over.....

BE A MAN RIDE A PAN !

Happy New Years From The Shoes

 

The tradition continues. Since the first time at two years old my daughter and me have went on our new years morning ride....Seems like forever since the first time when me and mom stuck a bicycle helmet on her and shoved her between us and took off down the road... :D 
Its so cool that she cant wait to get up and go for the ride even now being a teenager.....

Happy New Years and all the best in 2012
