Huber's 1958 Duo-Glide


Chris Huber has had a few motorcycles. From his period survivor Triumph chop we featured last year to the mile-munching KTM adventure bike he rode last summer, the dude likes two-wheeled motivation. His current stable includes two black beauties: this fine old panhead and a mostly stock Dyna. Nice combo by any standard. The only hole in the collection is a proper chopper, but give old Huber a couple months and he'll pull one out.

With a Dyna on tap one might think Chris would baby his '58 and use the modern machine for trips outside the Orange Curtain. That assumption would be a mistake as this old machine gets hammered all over and while certainly not as quick as his SOA Special, it more than holds its own.


Owner: Chris Huber

Location: Old Town Orange 

Engine, year and make, model, modifications: 1958 panhead FLH first year Duo-Glide. Stroked to 84 inch with an Andrews A cam and S&S super E carb

Frame: 58 DuoGlide Step Down

Fork: HydraGlide

Chassis mods:  Jesus (or some guy in Milwaukee) built this bike correctly in 1958 and all I had to do was take off or rebuild the horrible things meth amphetamine and the '90s did to her

Favorite thing about this bike: It's a BLACK PANHEAD WITH A STROKED MOTOR

Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc: Converted to 12-volt Spike generator.  I just always liked the look of a stock early swing arm panhead. Don't get me wrong, I love Shompers and Blobbers but I like the lines on this thing just the way someone engineered them in '58

Grammy Speech: Big thanks to Duane Ballard for my ripping seat and to Shawn Britton for making me my sweet saddlebags for the long hauls. I'd also like to thank Slash for playing all the guitar solos and titties 'n beer. Without them this album never would have come out. Thank you to all my fellow bike enthusiasts

Very nice! I have a buddy that just bought a '65 Pan at auction, not this nice. But what is cooler than an old black Panhead? NOTHING!

This guy rules... Whether its bringing fist slinging girls to a Mexican camp out, devouring plates of bacon, or going the extra mile to make sure a tattoo never fades. This Shark Puncher Original is well.... O.G.

Actually he is putting it back on, his bristling manliness causes shirt blowouts
