Then Ken Conte, marketing guru for Sucker Punch Sallys, gave me a ring. It seems he had read my story on Bikernet and talked with HOT BIKE about helping me build a bike using portions of an SPS kit to get a roller to go along with my H-D motor. Before long I had parts lining my garage and not a clue what to do with them. I was still a ways off from a completed mock-up. It was the third week in June, and I was trying to get this thing finished for Biketoberfest.
I tried to do most of the work myself, but tapped Kent Weeks of Lucky Devil Metalworks in Huston TX. for some help here and there. So far the industry has reached out to help me in the best possible way, and they have truly blown my mind with their efforts. Companies like J&P; Cycle, BDL, and Custom Chrome helped supply parts along the way. Kirk Taylor from Custom Design Studios has volunteered to do the paint job. Now it's up to me to put this thing together. So watch and see as I build this bike for my brother, the soldier, in appreciation for his service to our country.
