Kerry's New KR Lowboy

This is my friend Kerry Piggots, new 68 KR Lowboy that he got at the Las Vegas Auction.  Kerry plans on racing it in New Zealand and Australia later this year.  Good Luck Kerry!

Can you imagine coming of turn 4 in Daytona at about 150 on one of these?

Dual Carbs, Frame built by the famous Ralph Bernt on the same frame table we're building the cutdown on.

His name is Tater.....

Big Moe and the Big Fish

Moe's been helping out around the museum for as long as anyone can remember.  Dudes about as cool as it gets, and has more than a few stories that'll blow your mind.   As for the Big Fish.....nasty Knuckle stroker with a homemade swingarm frame.  You couldn't tell by the looks, but its the fastest old bike I've ever seen.

It Fits!

Fit the motor temporarily.  Everything lines up nice. I'm already dreaming about riding it.

Quite possibly the most baddass thing I've ever seen.

8-valve heads, mated to an altoona bottom end.  I've never seen removable 8 valve heads.  Look at those pipes. 

I know....its hard to believe.  Wheelies?  Are you kidding me?  Clocked at 158 mph during a race last year. 

I love this bike

'29 H-D JDH Stroker Cutdown.  If you can start it, you can ride it!
