It all started back in the 70’s and I was around 7 years old. I had a broken rototiller and a mini- bike frame, so I decided to build my own bike. My Godfather took me to the ice races when I was a young kid and that’s all it took, I was hooked! Back in the day, he ran a 1940 Indian Sports Scout in the 340 flat track class all over the United States. Later in life, I started collecting all sorts of motorcycles. Any make and any style; including, Indians, flat trackers, Harleys, and Hondas. You name it and I’ve probably got one out back in my barn. A few years ago, I took my 1948 Indian Chief out to the West Coast for an Indian Larry tribute ride, what a great time and a great ride! One of my bikes was featured in the 2020 Thunder Roads Michigan wall calendar and now another one of my bikes will be in the upcoming 2021-2020 Thunder Roads wall calendar.
This specific bike is a 2002 Pro Sport Big Dog with a 110 cubic inch motor. It’s got 16,000 miles on it and I rebuilt the motor about 2 years ago. That re-build included some camshaft upgrades, a jetted Mikuni carburetor, inverted forks, spinner rims and a skull air cleaner. I am always on the lookout for rare finds and cool bikes to add to my growing collection. As you all know, this habit is not cheap, so I have also been looking for a Sugar Mama to help me afford my addiction. Oh Hell Yeah!!
