Larry's Astroglide Shovelhead

Larry Pierce at Garage Company Customs in Pelham, Alabama, knows a thing or two about a thing or two. BFJ caught up with Larry and the Haints crew at the Smokeout XI to get the lowdown on this fresh-baked cone shovel.


Now if a fellow only read the Haints blog he might get the impression these guys are all fun and games. That's not exactly true. Unlike old Haint Nick, some guys have to earn a living, and that's what Larry does by building custom chops in the Dirty South. Here's the quick specs on this slick unit.

Fork: YOU!

Chassis mods: Custom fender tabs and stuff

Tire/wheel size: 18" and 21"

Favorite thing about this bike: It runs!

Next modification will be: Riding it till it breaks again

Other mods: I made the stainless bars and mid controls

Et Cetera: One day my old lady said, "Hey—you should paint your next bike some kind of Jetsons, Spacely Sprocket shit," so I built a shovel with suspension

Paint: Blue Moon Kustoms

Thanks to: Hammer, Stewie, Nick and Gladys Night

+1 on JD's comment...this bike is way rad in person. Larry's shop turns out some kick ass bikes...Larry, Spenser and the boys are getting better with each bike.

Bill, I earn money from gay porn and putting myself further into debt. I guess my job title could be a volunteer hype-man. Oh the bike, it is one of the the most fun choppers to ride. It also looks radical.

+2 on gay porn! Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Nice looking your ass would get hot with those pipes...not as hot as Nick's ass from all the gay porn though!
