I started putting parts together for this build in 2005. I go the frame from Paul Wheeler, found the springer front end at Handford swap meet flathead. Fern had the motor for me and I found the trans and most of the other parts at Lond Beach swap meet and El Camieno swap meet. The bike is a blast to ride. It’s my favorite one to ride out of the six bikes I have, but they all fun to ride. I also have a 1948 Ul Flathead, a 1952 Panhead, 1967 Shovelhead, a 1972 Shovelhead Police Special and a 1985 FXR – my next project. I have been very lucky and have had no bad experiences, Thank God! I am also building a VL Flathead trike for my girlfriend.
