Today my original panhead turned up for some work. It pretty much as i built her and it got sold to Pete. He has got a problem with his leg and at time i said if he couldn't start her i wouldn't sell. Anyway having shown him what to do, he manages to fire her 1st time virtually every time. He's had many years and has proved to be ultra reliable and is starting to age well. Still got a bit of a soft spot for her. She won a best paint award at some show which is very amusing considering its a rattle can job.
We are an independent bike shop based in Metheringham just outside Lincoln but our customers come from all over the country. If you need something doing, give us a call and we'll try and help. Whether it's OE repairs, motor work or something custom. We even sell complete bikes.
We are everyday regular riders. Our own bikes range from the 'teens' to the 2000's but most of our miles are done on knuckles and pans. Experience includes 10+ years working for the 'motor co' as well as time spent in major US custom shops and all our work is guaranteed.

Its all the little bits now. Wiring, cables, footboards etc etc. Pretty she aint, dirty she is, ive decided get her up and run in with original ignition and then put magneto on once she done a few miles. It now got Ian's original chrome linkert rebuilt from the love bike which is probably way to nice for her, with unknown bird catcher,buco enclosed chain guard, strange bars from ebay, one off pipes and few dress up and down items
making some progress now on 45
continuing dirty knucklehead 45
Now body work is painted it time to start putting it together. I'm using as many original cp bolts as i can find. They just add to the down and dirty look of the thing really and of course they fit.
