"I was surprised when I
started getting old. I always thought it was one of those things that
would happen to someone else"
I love my
Harley. I bought it in 1993 and except for the frame and a few other
odd parts, everything has been chromed, painted or otherwise replaced.
A cam bearing failure in 1997 forced a complete engine rebuild and gave me
the opportunity to beef-up, powder coat and polish the engine and
transmission. It has taken me 17 years to get it where it is . . . with a paint job in
1999 by Chris Wood at
A I R T R I X being about my last major improvement. As a
side note, HD does not stand for 'Harley Davidson', it stands for 'Hundred
Dollars' . . . you can't do anything to a Harley without spending at
least $100 . . . in my case multiple thousands.

The photos below
chronicle my bike's evolution from a stock black Softail Classic in 1993 to the
custom bike it is today . . . along with a few miscellaneous event pictures. I entered my bike in Ventura
Harley's Endless Summer bike show in 2000 and took 1st place in the Softail
Custom class. I do love it!
Image art for the rear and front fenders were air brushed by
Chris Wood owner of AirTrix.
The images are inspired by illustrations from fantasy and science fiction
artist Frank Frazetta . . . best known for his Little Annie Fanny, Conan and
Tarzan illustrations, among many others. The breath of his work is truly amazing.
Two great Frazetta sites: the
Unofficial Site and
the Official Site.
