What a waste of a Shovel, not to mention the copper that could be better used somewhere else.

I'll wager no shovel engine parts were abused during the build: SH-Series S&S motor.

A new challenger to the throne. I can already hear the mainstream M/C media gushing about Art Deco and wonderful lines and craftsmanship......

What I cannot understand is that there are tire manufacturers making specialty tires for these abortions and I cannot buy a decent 2.75-21.

I'm with you. I have a few old XLCH projects I could use the old Goodyear Grasshopper 400/450x18" tire on, and I know a lot of others who want them. Apparently Coker has the molds, but has less than no interest in making them. Then I see outfits making these idiot tires. I guess supply and demand goes to the ignorant following bad fads. The writer DeTouqueville called this the Tyranny of the Masses. We see it at all levels, all the time

He just pulled that finger out of his butthole, which is where this thing was conceived.

Here's one more for you guys. This one was a team effort of Flypaper customs and Rome Brothers customs. They call it Anarchy
