Default Salinas Boys Shovelhead Finally Painted...Almost FINISHED!!!!!

This bike has a crazy story behind it. I could write a book about the shit this bike and I have been through haha. Glad the journey of building it is almost complete and the new chapter of putting miles on it is about to begin. Much thanks to Cole and Aaron. And especially my lovely girlfriend who funded the completion of this bike.

The front end doesn't have the springs in it right now. The tubes still need to get shortened bradda.

Love Coles style on his version of the bobber. I wanted to know why he didn't have any older mills put into the mix. Id have to say this bike nails it even if its not done has to be my favorite Salinas boys style bike hands down! Makes me envious but gives me high hopes for my pile of scrap metal!

COLE is the best bike/car builder there is. I'm lucky enough to have had him work on my bike. All I had to do was sweep the shop floor after working. Good times.

Haha. I was working for him then. I was just a young 19 year old kid. Born and raised in Salinas so he probably was happy I didn't turn out like most kids do in Salinas, gang bangers. He just wanted to help me out ya know.

Damn that's a clean, great looking bike.

I gotta agree, Cole is probably the best there is, very talented fabricator and such an eye for details and stance of the car/bike. The now famous Blue bobber has to be one of my all time favorite bikes.

Hard to believe the Blue Bike is almost 10 years old! Still blows my mind every time I see that thing. For sure that bike is my favorite bike of all time. He's the king.
