It seems like yesterday that we were all introduced to Instagram and it’s easy to say that we spend way too much time using it. Instagram has allowed me to meet fellow members like Scot Santore. When Scot's bike fell into the #chopcult feed, I was instantly smitten. It took Scot ten months to build this beautiful ’52 panhead and it's one fine, clean, mean machine.
“I bought this bike when a friend of a friend wrecked and just about lost his foot. When I got the bike it still had pieces of his shoe in the primary. My buddy Josh Berklovich did the fab work and I helped him where I could. My other buddy Bob Streets did the molding and paint. I went to Sturgis where the bike was well received by all. It was Bill Dodge's pick in The Horse Magazine's show. It was also chosen as Willie G's pick for Harley-Davidson's event and took home the People's Choice and Best Pan awards. Last but not least it won Best Pan in Cycle Source's bike show. The bike runs so good it's almost scary, pretty much one kick every time.”
