Brandon is the only guy in the garage with a Harley.  I guess it’s not too shocking, based on where we are, with Williamsburg being one of the centers of the Japanese vintage vortex.  But Brandon seems to be going through the Harley Sportster at a rapid pace, trying to find the one that will suit him best…

The first Harley Sportster that Brandon brought to the garage got some nice, custom tweaks.  A custom painted tank, parts stripped off to reveal the bare-bones look of an American Classic.  But Brandon sold that bike to a friend, and grabbed this more modern Harley Sportster.  This bike was to remain mostly stock, and just be a solid rider (Brandon rides all winter long).  Only at the shop for a few months, Brandon decided that he would be looking around for vintage shovel head model.

A couple near-misses later, and he hooked up with a guy who had a 1970 Harley Shovel Head, complete with custom rigid frame.  The guy was looking to trade, and Brandon jumped on the opportunity.  So we helped him pack up the bike on the back of a truck, and off he went to see about the trade.

Turns out both parties were happy, and the trade was made, a modern Harley Sportster for the 1970 Shovel Head.  Brandon is pumped, and we are looking forward to getting some photos of another type of Harley…
