Still finding em'
Shop bell rings and I go out to see who's there and Rob "you have a friend in metal" hultz is standing outside with this time machine. He got the word about this 1960 panhead sitting in a basement since 1972 and sure enough it was true. Story goes, the guy built it in 1970 and died in 1972, old lady puts it in the basement, old lady dies and kid inherits house, 2009 kid wants to sell the house and the bike. This next part is hard to believe but I swear it's true, the bike fires first kick and Rob rides it 8 miles to the shop. First run in 37 years. It has it's issues but this little piece of history is gonna see some great miles as it was intended to do in 1970. So don't give up, the gold mines are still out there. Pics by Alex Gvojic.
