GM´s Swap Meet Highlight - Flathead 1941

There is not the slightest doubt that the highlight of the day was this beautiful 1941 Flathead, that belongs to Hadys, a friend of mine. When he arrived at the meeting with his still unpainted sidecar, and parked it across the street, he stopped the show and everybody left the workshop where the swap was happening, for a closer look at the bike. 

My humble friend who calls himself a weekend mechanic, despite his vast knowledge in this area, is responsible for two blogs specialized in classic Harley Davidson motorcycles, and its rebuilding process. They are both called JURASSIC MACHINES - Rebuilding Dreams.

The first one - - was created to spread the rebuild of a Flathead in 1946, held by himself in his garage. When the job was done, he won the Highlight Motorcycle Trophy in the most important Classic Motorcycle´s Meeting in South America, that took place in Pátio do Colégio, São Paulo. (by the way, the 7th edition of this show will be on 4th of July, and yes, we´ll be there)

The second one - - is specialized in reform and reconstruction of old Harley Davidsons. For those who like the subject, both are certainly worth the visit.

As you can see, I was privileged enough to be invited to ride on the sidecar around the block. It was extremely comfortable and funny as hell, just riding on it to know ...

Thanks Hadys for the opportunity and congratulations for the beautiful and flawless Flathead. And thanks Toecutter for the video.

Keep ridin, ftw...
