Nice device

Old Harleys are precious collectors items. They are sought after like never before. The old style padlock at the lower end of the headset, and the easy to manipulate ignition switch is not a big deal for an interested thief. Both  they are not tamper-proof. If you are just over to warm your preferred peaches, and have to park your sled outside on the street, there is a solution. It is unobtrusive (without the red key) but effective. Press the red key towards the bike, turn it to the right, and remove it. The main power cable will be

kill switch

interrupted, the bike will not start. Some folks call it immobilizer. This is not true though, as long there is a truck and some accomplices around. But it may help!

The favourite tank painting

Harley riders are known for their exceptional taste, when it comes down to the paintwork on the tanks or fenders of their beloved bikes. This one was found on a 1996 Fatboy in Northern Germany. From fantasy creatures to complete historical scenes, skulls, and figures from comic books.


Check 'em out, they are all over the web. You might find an inspiration how to change the looks of your own scooter.


Picture of the month:

engine surgery

A view into the engine surgery room of 45s Forever, the most famous Harley repair and customizing shop in the Bay Area, located on  Berryessa Road in San Jose, California, just off the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay (more below). All photos can be viewed in their original size.

Who is riding our shit?

A good question to ask. Ray, the very old shop owner of 45s Forever
has the answer: " Those folks, who want true reliability, they have their ride done by us." He is proud, that none of his customers came back with a complaint during his career. For more than 40 years he runs this business together with his son Roman and his brother George. One of Rays

beloved sons, "Bad Ass RJ"(below),

Bad Ass RJ Good luck Ray with your plans.

And i
f there is anybody out there, who needs to have some work done on his sled, or wants to have a chat with an exceptionally skilled mechanic, and fabulous Harley fellow, go visit him. But don't forget to bring a couple of beers.
was killed a couple of years ago in a road accident while riding on the Freeway 101. He was one of those rare guys, who could gain expertise through his own hands-on experience in virtually no time. On the occasion of his birthday, a commemoration will be held. He always will be remembered with gratitude and appreciation. Ray has a special wish: one day he wants to escape from his work, and travel with his early Shovel across Spain, the country of his ancestors .
45s Forever, opened Tuesday thru Friday


About 140 miles north of the Harley Davidson factory in Wisconsin, you will find Brian's shop. Brian sells primarily Harley-Davidson motorcycles, which can be damaged due to a falling branch of a tree, or an accident. Thus these bikes are inexpensive and Brian will tell you, what do you have to do, to fix it. Import duties and taxes can be saved and you finally end up with a sound ride for the price you can afford. Brian ships worldwide.

Caged Ironhead

Bob from Louisville, Kentucky gave me this picture of his '77 Ironhead.


The bike obviously does not have the adequate space, nor the necessary attention yet. W
e strongly hope, that Bob turns his baby into a beauty soon. We encourage him by recommending a website with beautifully restored ironheads:  http://www.harley-ironhead.com/
