New Favorite Sled.

Diggin' this Shovel.

Couple years ago I picked up a Superglide with a wrecked front end (below). I put a swap meet Heritage front end on it, a sweet La pera seat and shorty pipes, rattle-canned some primer on the tins and made it my dependable, daily rider.

I like it, but it doesn't have the "je ne sais quoi" of this cool, fenderless Shovel.


  1. Yeah, but yours has a utilitarian John Deere feel about it, and besides if you go the other route we'll have to start callin; ya 'Frenchy"....

  2. Oui HL, also with two crushed discs in my back, twenty-five miles is my limit on a hardtail. (And I'm building another one, oy)
