This is my buddy Herb's shovel. Two years ago he knew absolutely nothing about motorcycles, especially American ones. I've never met anyone so determined to do everything he can himself to learn what's what. Sometimes his fabrication skills scare me, but if his life depends on something he'll usually ask my opinion on the safety of what he's done. He may not listen, but at least he asks. Oh, at this point he knows a crapload about American bikes. I think he has a good eye for putting stuff together.
