Kit Bike and Shovelhead together again!

What's better than this? Nothing!!!!

AEE Kit Bike at Fuel Show in Cleveland

Again more congrats to John Kelly for his phenomenal job with this bike. This replica was originally put together by myself and Dave Brackett, designer and builder of the original. I spent 5 years gathering all of the parts and between Dave and I we got it together and running. However, I did not have the resources to complete the paint and chrome. John graciously bought it and made it even better. He tore it all the way back down to bare frame and started in. His attention to detail and fanatic quest to make it an exact duplicate meant much more work and its turned out wonderful. Its nearly ready to run again and I can't wait for him to fire it and ride! he deserves it.

AEE Shovelhead at the Fuel Show in Clevland

Enjoy the incredible sight of this bike in its gestation......John Kelly is too be proud of his efforts in this recreation of one of our most famous bikes, designed and built by Dave Brackett of AEE Choppers!

The Kit Bike is in getting a mild amount of molding. As with the original there is only enough molding going on to smooth welds. Base paint color going on very soon!
This frame was built by the original designer and builder of AEE's frames, Dave Brackett.. It was built using the original drawings made by Dave.
