“I wasn’t really planning on building a new bike, but I was on Instagram during my lunch break one day and I saw a good deal on a 67FLH motor and trans down in NC. I called the dude and we went back and forth until we ended up making a deal by the end of the day. This all happened on a Thursday, by Saturday I was back in town with the motor and trans. The plan was to just throw something together in a couple months and ride it down to Wildwood, NJ for ‘Night of the Troglodytes’. Well that didn’t happen. What I thought would be a couple months turned into about a year and half. A lot of that time was spent going to local swaps and hitting up local old timers for all the original and rare parts. I am very picky with the parts I use, and the style of bike I like. Period correct is my thing and I tried my best to keep true to that while I was building the bike.
Once I had most of the bike mocked up I took it to my good buddy Buddy Millz so he could help with some fab. There were countless long nights that ended with me sleeping on his couch. The bike has really been a labor of love, as well as a huge learning experience for me. The bike was recently been sold and is now living over in Japan. Luckily I got to spend the Summer riding it all over, putting many hard miles on it, with many great memories. I wont lie, I definitely do miss it, but there will be another.
I have many people to thank. Buddy Miller for all the help with fab work, letting me mooch off his shop, and sleep on his couch. Old-timer Al in Lancaster for doing all the motor and trans work and helping me on the final stretch, wiring the bike and getting it fired. Travis Hess AKA ‘Tuki’, for hand painting the killer flames over the chrome on the tank, it really brought the whole bike together. My Dad for making the road trips with me, and always being there to help. Ben Hittle for taking the time to shoot the bike. Lastly Dean and everyone at DicE. THANK YOU!!!!”-Zack
