Classic American Iron Project 1930 Harley VL & Sidecar At Retrocycle

We are hard at work on a different kind of article for the all tech American Iron Garage magazine on sale in a few months. In it we are following the process, at Retrocycle in Boonton, NJ, of getting an old Harley back on the road after too many years of storage in a midwest basement.

This particular machine is a 1930 Harley VL with sidecar. It was built many years ago with whatever genuine Harley parts the builder could get his hands on, long before the wide assortment of reproduction parts we now have available.

We started by removing the sidecar so we couold get the bike up on a stand to work on it.

In a matter of a day we got most of the issues sorted out and the bike running. And a few more hours to sort it out, and finish detailing the machine. Full article and lots of photos and info in the next issue of American Iron Garage magazine this summer. This is a newsstand-special issue from American Iron Magazine.

Daytona Beach Bike Week Classic Harley Art by David Uhl

I (Buzz Kanter) am so honored to be in the next painting by renowned artist David Uhl as part of his Daytona Beach Bike Week series.

The painting, which is not quite finished in this rendition, is of me racing my 1928 Harley JDH bobber against a guy in a 1920s Ford T hot rod on the beach with a pretty starter girl.

When finished I believe David will be selling copies of this work. I know I want one for my walls.
