The Boss's Bike

My boss sent me this pic of his super cool 1928 Harley Model 28B and behind it is his dad's 1931 Peugeot.  Both of these bikes are in his home country of Belgium, but hopefully someday he will ship it over here, I'd like to check it out.

H-Town Shaker Update

Finally got all my tins back from paint and lettering this week.  Still have the exhaust to build, wire and plumb, and few more odds and ends.  I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel! The paint, stripes and, body work was done by Brandon Armstrong 513-317-4413, he did a killer job, and the gold leaf lettering was done by Josh Shaw of Shaw Hot Rods, 513-257-5121,  They both nailed the look I wanted!

Hard to get a good pic with the limited space of my garage

Josh Shaw's handy work

Stainless tank mounts were left raw

All stainless fork brace


I took this picture a few weeks ago leaving the Hot Rod Reunion and it reminds me of a race team from the late 60's that has lost in the final round of eliminations and loaded up with defeat on all their minds.
