1982 Harley Davidson FXRS

This Lowrider is almost stock and an impeccable example nearly four decades old! Our customer requested raised white letter tires to make it period correct, but, alas, the only ones I could find still in production were sized for full dressers. So, I found a “special” tire marking paint pen and took to filling in the lettering of these Dunlop tires and thought they came out fantastic!! We’ll find out how long they hold up, the pen manufacturer claims one year, time will tell…

Harley Trike

Converting this 1992 FLHS to a trike seriously taxed my skills and patience! The assembly is basically a Paughco clone of Harley’s trike, but due to the FLHS having a different triple tree assembly than any other bike, I was obligated to modify and fabricate every component for the extra 6˚ of rake necessary to keep the trike stable. The Baker reverse kit was a breeze to install, a new mainshaft and side cover to house the gears, forks and solenoids to operate the system replaced the stock components perfectly. And best of all, Danny is ecstatic with the finished product!!

Now that I have a trike kit notch on my belt, I am ready to tackle the next one!!


Baby Moon hubcaps were the finishing touch that added the styling.


Baker 5 speed gear driven reverse works perfectly!!

1979 FLH Electra Glide in patina

The new owner of this bike decided to keep it just as it is, a time capsule of the days of our innocence, so to speak. So we set about making everything work correctly and only cleaned and polished a little bit of it. We repaired the starter system, throw out bearing, kickstand, and manifold electrical issues with the lights, ignition switch and wiring harness. Replaced the drive chain and guard, battery, driver foot pegs, front brake pads and performed a full service, flushed the brake systems, set the ignition timing correctly and tweaked the S&S carburetor. Mounted new tires and found the rear wheel wouldn’t hold air. So we built a new rim and hub with twisted stainless steel spokes, which we also installed in the front wheel to keep everything consistent at the owner’s request. And now I think we have one of the coolest retro rides around RVA!!


Only “before” pic I took.

Yes, the eagle’s eyes light up!
