This 79 Shovel came to us as a rolling chassis, and has sat, waiting patiently in our shop for about a year. We have been working on it since June, and it has been coming together quite smoothly. We just got all of the sheet metal prepared for paint. Everything else is off to chrome and powder coat. Trying to get it ready for the David Mann Chopper Fest!

Well its been a little while since I last updated. There has just been so much stuff going on in and out of the shop.... Hideo moved back to Japan after being in California for 5 years and workin here at Road Dogs for 2 years. I met Hideo through Trevelen of Super Co. Trev told me that he knew this young Japanese guy who wanted to learn how to paint and had a little pinstriping and welding experience. Since then he has far exceeded in almost every department of building a motorcycle and has built a reputation as a great painter and pinstriper under the name Kamikaze. Further more, he has become apart of our family and a great friend. We wish him the best of luck on his new endeavor! For those who knew him, keep up the support.
