The Daily:Ted's FLH

 

Ted Stoddard, owner of S&S Auto Recon in Oceanside, was looking for a motorcycle to build and found a basket case on Craig's List. The bike parts came in 4 plastic bins with a frame. When he sorted through it all, all the parts were there for a complete bike, and it even had an extra motor. Ted enlisted the help of his friend Mike Olson to rebuild the motor for the bike, in exchange for that extra motor. A win- win situation. Afterwards Mike did all the fabrication to turn the stock FL into a hard tail chopper and Ted handled all of the paint, body work, and polishing on the aluminum.

If the bike doesn't have a name I'd suggest either "Back From The Dead"
or "Got Lucky" ;-)

Olson built my bike right after he built this one. Our bikes are siblings. They have a lot of similarities.
