Loz: an update
Remember Loz, the Aussie who flew to Illinois to buy a Pan in 1975?
The front half of his old Pan's frame, plus the original trans, went into this latest reincarnation of the bike, which Loz has just finished. He used a V-Twin Pan motor. Nice photo by the ocean... 20 degrees and sunny in mid-winter! I miss that.
The middle photo is of Loz on his '47 Knuck in about '86, with his nephew riding pillion. And yes, Loz still has the bike...
He is a font of knowledge about old H-Ds... which I am taking advantage of. (He pointed out an RL springer incorrectly captioned as a VL in one of our features... oops.) He also has more cool old parts than you can shake a stick at. Later I'll show you the photos of the Howard 50 degree v-twin motors he has in his shed... and an Ozbike magazine feature bike using one... good stuff.
