1931 Harley VL, bought as a rolling, hung-together basket case on eBay. Missing parts supplied by Steve at VL Heaven. Ribbed rear fender from Baron Speed Shop, paint by me and striping by Scarlett Rickard. Top end engine rebuild by Robbo at RTO Engineering and gearbox re-furb by Steve at VL. Thanks to Dave, the Mechanic Piranha!.
