Carl Olsen's 37el & my 38el - Goodbye South Dakota!

Carl's 37 was the first knucklehead I rode - It left such an impression on me that when Matt Olsen had to have my 38 paint done - I asked him to have a patina job done.

My fork, frame and oil tank are original paint and all the parts are original and crusty.

What a fine pair of crusty old Prewar Knuckleheads!

The Black Pig - 38el

My Buddy Rusty is visiting Matt Olsen at Knuckle HQ in South Dakota ( Carl's Cycle Supply ) and snapped these shots of my 38el "The Black Pig"




The money shot - Love this!

It won't be long now ... The 'Pig ... will be winging its way to UK. I already have a list of events I'd like to attend. Nearly 4 years in the making ... I bought and old bike and it was torn down and completely rebuild and parts refurbished while maintaining it's crustiness. I believe the technical term is a "CRUSTORATION"

1938 Speedo & Dash

It's nice and crusty .... Everytime I look at that it makes me smile ... I wonder what that dash has seen since 1938?
