I bought the bike in 2017 from a Patriot Guard Riders member. The previous owner had a lot of pride in this bike. Unfortunately an illness took hold and he had to part ways with this one. It is a 2005 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail. He purchased the bike brand new in 2005 from Shiawassee Harley-Davidson in Birch Run. In early 2006 it was disassembled and sent to Wisconsin to be dipped. I’m not sure which company did it but they did a fantastic job, Eleven thousand, two hundred dollars worth!
I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase this beautiful bike and keep this beauty on the road to show off this this piece of art. Yes, she is dipped not sprayed or wrapped. Last year I had the top end rebuilt.
Top End Cycle of Burton is the shop that bored her over from a 88ci to 98ci. She has won a few shows and hopefully will continue to in the future. I wish I could take full credit for this bike but from one veteran to another, thanks for creating this beautiful machine. Photos by our friend Tiffany McCain
