My personal main ride, 1946 Forest Green Chief. Seat Rail I made to keep from sliding off solo seat when too many beers. We have been together for almost 30 years.
The 1934 Sport Scout is a rare bird indeed. This running bike was pictured in Hatfield's book on Scouts. Previous owner Paul Pierce, one of the founding members of the Antique Motor Cycle Association . This has been in my family for over 20 years. My son Brandon road this all over hell in the early part of this century. He once rode this to the Blessing of the bikes in Baldwin when he was just 15. They would not give him trophy for youngest ride as he had no valid drivers licence. But they had to give him the oldest bike trophy though.
The 1935 was my first Antique and probably my last ground up Harley Davidson restoration , took 15 years to find, and hunt up the parts. I put the owner of VL Restorations kids threw college on all the special nuts and bolts I had to purchase. Harley had their own thread on most pieces , and every thing was special , special , special . I had restored this in mind to sell to a store owner who wanted to display a mannequin and his high end clothing line, He had a JD on display with fancy dressed ,tweed covered, scarf flowing rider upon it , but complained about the smell and the son of a bitch bike would never quit leeching oil. My bike has never had gas or oil in it, and been a trailer queen since the restoration. By the time I took to finish it, he had done died. I still wonder where his JD went...
