I know a lot of people - but I
only have a few real friends.
They're the folks that when you do get to spent time with them
you just throw your arms around each other and can't stop
chatting. They're folks you've known for a long time - they may
be far away physically, but they're always close in your heart.
That's the deal with Chowdah and Toga.
I've known Chowdah for more than a dozens years - and I was the
first guy to ride bitch on the back of her Road King. I think it
scared the hell out of her - I just jumped on as she rode past
our old clubhouse one day!
Anyway, because this is about bikes and not my personal buddy
list, time passed and Chowdah got hitched to a cool dude named
Toga who loves wrenching on the old iron. Well, let's let him
tell a bit of the story:
Howdy, so this is how it went.
My wife has always wanted a Panhead. Back in 2002 I bought a
rolling [well almost] chassis with jap wheels and a rusted out
girder front end. Of course it sat in the shop for a while as I
gathered parts. As it does,time kept marching on. I got a deal
on a bagger so the chassis sat and stared at me while I wrenched
on the bagger.It had way too much stuff on it.
He goes on to tell about his scoot - and we'll get to that in
bit, but it's Ladies First and this fine panhead on the left is
100% Chowdah. What can I say - like the lady, the bike flat out
