Certain styles have nearly infinite shelf lives. Things like good boots, black paint and 1911 pistols are just fine the way they are and you won't get tired of them after the shine wears off and trends fade on into whatever the next thing is. Grant's pan is one of those bikes. No feats of engineering, no statement to be made, just a simple old motorcycle that anyone would be proud to blast around on.
Bike name: Dynamite
Engine: 1949 FL
Frame: Stock with Paughco neck
Fork: Wide Glide- normally it has a beard, but it shaved for the photo shoot
Chassis mods: A little rake and some other gardening
Tire/wheel size and style: There's Liquor up front poker in the rear
Favorite thing about this bike: The rear fillister screw underneath my primary...dead sexy
Next modification will be: Caleb or JD making me a new sissy bar, mids, and some new bars...a fender, maybe some new wheels, seat, tranny, tank, shifter, cables, throttle, I like saying petcock so lets put one of those down, maybe some tires too.
Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc: Bates, Moon, Avon, Hot Dog, Foot Clutch, Hand Shift, Spool, Jimmy Walker- which one of these doesn't belong? Or is it a trick question?
Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include: Yea, that guy that won the 'Cocktagon' down at slab last year, just wanted to let everyone know he is a total "poofter" and when you see him on the EDR in a few months- you have my permission to kick him in the nuts. He's lucky I wasn't there, my wife wouldn't let me go. I had chores. And counseling. And yoga.
