This first build, #001, is a beautiful original 1949  Harley Davidson Panhead. We are building it as a shop project to give you a sniff of what we’re cooking over here…

We are proud to announce that Brian Auderers "The Jewel" will be gracing the cover of Rod and Custom. This one is kind of historic because it is the last feature car to hold the Cover of Rod and Custom as the magazine will be no more. Our friend Rob Fortier came out to shoot the car and wrote the article in part with owner Brian Auderer. This issue also features show coverage of the Lone Star Round Up which is put on by our good friends the Kontinentals.

 

Go find it on news stands now while you still can.
