Blog of Note

I visit and bookmark more blogs than the just the ones listed in the right hand column. One of the better one's is Matt Olsen's, so it's about time its been added to my blog list. He and his father Carl, of Carl's Cycle Supply, restore old Harleys and do it right. The details and lengths they go to are amazing. They make their own or modify a lot of after market parts to be correct. Watching them do it via the blog is interesting and inspiring. Warning! You can spend a lot of time going back through the post.

This one is not restored. It's an original paint '41 in outstanding condition.

Check out the cover of the new American Iron. Matt's '46 is featured. He did what I did. Bobbed a perfectly restored stocker. Go figure. Matt's dad Carl learned his trade in a shop in Redding, CA. Back in the day. We've rode together on a few AMCA road runs. Wish he'd buy the beer sometime.

I figure. Stock, chopped, or bobbed, it's all good, but bobbing old bikes is probably the best of all worlds.
