|This is a pen & ink line drawing of me, on the '65
Harley, that was done by Lorraine Turner Tranter.
She didn't know me when I owned the bike and drew
this years later - thus the difference between the photo
above, showing me with my 70's sideburns and
mustache, and her depiction with my 80's beard.
|1965 HARLEY CREDITS
All Fabrication, Constuction, Engine Building and Paint by Stu Segal
|Raked, stretched, mandrelbent exhaust, cut/sectioned gas tank, girder fork
(and, ok, I couldn't get away from the silver on gray paint).
NOTE: I was really proud of the paintjob (which I did in the bathtub - Kathy was pissed).
|This was roughly 20 years before the Swedish Longbikes/30 years before the Jesse
James choppers. In the early 70's there really wasn't much of a bike culture,
so I just built what I liked (everyone thought I was nuts at the time,
but 30 yrs later they were paying 30, 40, 50 grand for bikes like this).
|I only built one bike in the 70s, a '65 Harley.
