What A Haul!


Dude stopped by the shop today with a 1940 police special knucklehead, 1938 Indian hillclimber, and 11 Shovels all original paint except one. Kinda cool and kinda pisses me off at the same time? Check it out here

This is what we should be doing. Pool our money time and skills.

This is Todd, many people around the world call me the Harley guy as I collect them. The warehouse usually has around 70 odd shovels in it at a time. I collect these and am constantly upgrading my collection. Sometimes this takes a lot of work. One of my mechanics is currently doing a nut and bolt mechanical restoration on the 57th 1977 Lowrider built. 1977 being the 1st year Lowrider. All factory, no cosmetic restoration of any parts, all original paint stuff. I have lost count how many partially stock machines I have had to put apart to get good quality original parts for this unique and rare machine. You can see some of my bikes here:
