Nick Resty's Show-Stopping Shovel


Like the ghosts of old rednecks their club is named after, The Haints hail from the heart of what once were the Confederate States of America. Nick Resty is the spiritual leader of this mysterious band of hard-drinking and free-loving motorcylers, and his great attitude and quick wit conjure up good spirits wherever he materializes. On a sunny March morning at this year's Daytona Bike Week, Nick floated into Willie's Tattoo Parlor aboard his freedom machine and stole the show.



We could try to add context and relevance to Nick's show-winning shovel with a litany of specs and tech, but that's not what this guy or his club are about. Nick and the Haints are about having fun at any cost, social conventions and morality be damned. If that means stealing booze, sleeping in ditches and dancing naked, so be it. When I offered Nick's friend Navy Tim 20 bucks to do something stupid, he had his pants down and his junk tucked before I could say "Buffalo Bill." Creepy? That depends on your perspective. If riding old iron to get drunk and act silly with funseekers is a sin, Nick and the Haints look forward to seeing all of us in hell.

Nick, Larry and the other Haints are FUN! I laugh from the time we first see them to the time we leave. Booze, Beer and Dude dancing. Motorcycles is a side line to the fun with these guys. By the way great looking bike. Tim

Congrats on the win at Willie's buddy! One again, I missed the whole show while working.

Commented on 3-22-2011 At 09:16 pm

four guys are standing around a bunch of tents, in the forground there is a old shovelhead chopper. Three of the guys are making small talk to each other, Nick, Benji and Jay and the fourth is taking pictures-Magoo.

looking at magoo taking pictures
Wow this is a great photoshoot, only thing we are missing is jay naked tucking his junk between his legs in the backround doing the jesus christ'

Magoo briefly glances over to nick then to jay
I will give you twenty bux to do that, to take off your clothes and stand in the backround
My friend you got your self a deal
As jay begins to derobe he whispers to Nick and Benji
What a sucker little does he know i would of done it for free!

In 20 years when my kid gets into bikes I have a feeling I'll get asked whether I ever partied with the Haints. They bring the party whether its nearly blowing up scooters with starting fluid or pelting critter cars with fist size rocks. Never a dull moment.

Nicks bike is def one of the best of the year. And that Navy Tim charactor is a sexy bitch.

Commented on 3-23-2011 At 08:38 am

Thanks for all of the comments guys. It means a lot. Jason, those things happened in a matter of hours. We are smart.

Commented on 3-23-2011 At 09:42 am

A couple of very entertaining hours. Looking forward to next time, sucked to miss Daytona...

Commented on 3-23-2011 At 08:23 pm

Sick bike man. I got a question though... Anybody ever tell you Jason lee looks kind of like you?

Commented on 3-23-2011 At 08:24 pm
