Greasy Kulture issue 77
On the cover: Joe Graves and the beautiful 1950 Harley-Davidson Panhead chopper he built from boxes of smashed parts.
Dr Sprocket helps out an old friend by organising and parting out 'The Collection' – a lifetime's collection or rare bikes and parts. Biltwell’s Bill Bryant introduces us to the bike he intends to grow old with: his 1957(ish) Harley Hydra Glide, built to eat miles. From Germany, Matthias Seidl and his 1975 T140 – retro-engineered to his vision of the perfect Oakland Roadster Show '60s showbike. A very original '42 WLC flathead was renovated by Tony Esposito in New York... but the bike came with a mystery he felt compelled to solve. Jim and Richard from Skinny Choppers built a Panhead bob-job for practicality and reliability – perfect mix of old and new. Gonz, born and bred in Tokyo and editor of two of the world's best chopper mags, talks about his ever-changing '49 Panhead which he's owned for 23 years. From Sweden, a rad Bay Area-inspired genny Shovel chopper – but Larsa Hedstrom is getting grief over it from his family!
