A lot of my riding time these days is focused on prepping and getting real-world shakedown miles on my rebuilt 1929 Harley-Davidson JDH before the 3,800-mile coast-to-coast Motorcycle Cannonball in September. But I keep reminding myself what Dale Walksler of Wheels Through Time advised me, “Get the bike running right and then leave it alone. […]

2012 Harley-Davidson FLS Softail Slim Motorcycle Review

Harley-Davidson-FLS-Softail-Slim-4

Don’t let the name fool you. The Slim is more than just a trimmed-down Softail. It’s a bike that salutes the immediate post-World War II years when motorcycling redefined itself in America. It was a wild and rollicking time, too. And, despite today’s misperception that the 1947 Hollister incident served as ground zero, the real […]

Steve “Street Rod” builds a chopper to rival the pros

Readers-Ride-Custom-Motorcycle-7-12-6

Before I go on and on about this being Nutmegger Steve Van Blarcom’s first bike build, which it is, you should know that he’s a successful and well-respected builder of hot rods and classic automobiles.

Harley Engine Experts, To Rebuild Or Upgrade A Vintage Engine

When I’m looking to rebuild and/or upgrade a vintage engine — namely a Shovel, Pan, Knuckle, Ironhead Sportster, or flathead — I go to a shop that’s expert at that type of motor. And though I’ve rebuilt many of these engines when I had my shop back in the day, I want someone with more […]

Problem Child, Custom 2002 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy

Custom-2002-Harley-Davidson-Fat-Boy-5

Have you ever known somebody who always seemed to be down on his luck, some-one who lives under a perpetual gray cloud? When I was in high school, we had a guy like that. If he didn’t have bad luck, he’d have no luck at all. Fittingly, we nicknamed him Chief Gray Cloud. Another friend […]
