65 panhead, 1955 panhead, 36 knucklehead and maternity photos

We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it,  my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend.  This bike is massive,  I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it,  I am too short!  Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.  

1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery,  I think it looks nice with out it.  The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them.  The mufflers are new old stock and sound great.  The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you

I got to take my 36 out for the first time this year. Sophorn put a windshield on it, which ended up being more of a challenge than we anticipated since the summer shields were designed for standard rigid bars and I have Flanders bars on my bike.   

I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week.  This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
The rear header pipe was missing when they brought the bike to us.  My dad had a nice old original superior rear header pipe in his stash of parts.  It fit up really nicely and matches the rest of the bike well

Britt and I did our maternity photos with the bike. It was fun.  Here is a link to the rest of the photos

Cool Shovelhead.

Cool VW Trike.

Cool Indian.

AMF 2-smoke Snowmobile Oil.

Water fountain is stuck on and the drain doesn't work right either.

This is about the most worthless officially licensed thing I have ever seen. Yes, I bought, but only because he bundled it with a chopper peg. Evidently this is a wired landline telephone with a wired headset.

I'm not sure who thought this was a good idea. I blame Willie G.

Here's my three pegs for the day.

I got these killer stickers for free from a former Snap-on dealer. I know I had the Rick Mears sticker from when I was a kid. That dude had some killer old Snap-on promotional stuff, including a few girlie clocks that I remember a few mechanics having in my dad's shop as a kid. I would have bought one for my garage, but I figured they are not PC and my sons would look at them too long like I used to.


More photography from Kit's Kulture Ride to VELVETERIA on the inaugural ride ~ and if you've never heard of it, take a minute; it's the world's ONLY black velvet museum and it's totally worth a visit! And if you missed Kit's Kulture Ride, don't commit suicide just yet... Kit has a "remedial" ride planned for early 2016! So you can do a little extra credit, and catch up to the rest of the class, no problem!


The inaugural Kit's Kulture Ride, actually took place directly underneath the exhaust from Air Force One as the President landed at LAX. But, you didn't visit the Lady Hump to hear about that... I'm not totally sure why you came here, but you're here now, so read ahead. We met at the iconic Randy's Donuts and headed north then east toward China Town. Looking for big trouble, we found VELVETERIA, the world's ONLY black velvet museum, and it did not disappoint.

I'll post more pics tomorrow and info on Kit's "REMEDIAL" Kulture Ride if, for whatever reason(s), you happened to miss this adventure! Stay tuned kids.
