Found a picture of my AEE Kit Bike seats on the Haifley Brothers blog. They recovered the original AEE seats to perfection.

Just a couple pictures...one just a logo mashup AEE had late in its life. Another of Leo Payne at our dyno running the Shovelhead with Robert Smith aboard. Last my buddy Lenny Cenotti at the parts counter supposedly explaining something to a customer. Reality? Customer was also an employee.

Dave Brackett, AEE Choppers designer and engineer, shared these pictures with me today of the ongoing Big Twin restoration in conjunction with Bones Legacy of Las Vegas. He tore down the 45 rear end (said the grease was a solid as a rock), got in to the torsion bar tube which was full of water and got it all cleaned up, got rear suspension cleaned up and corrected, got tires to seat and inflate (they are the original 1969 Goodyear bluestreaks), he also had to straighten the handlebars, cleaned up the C4 trans....lots of small but important things being fixed, restored and corrected. He said materials are arriving to begin the fabrication/repair of the neck and frame that got hacked up by a PO. His exact words were "it's a mess" but not once did he say he could not make it right. Dave is the man!

Bones Legacy Choppers of Las Vegas has had Big Twin for a couple years and has very slowly begun a restoration. They pulled the motors and had them re-chromed and rebuilt. However one of the previous owners had seriously damaged the chassis when attempting to put a blower on the Twin. In a very smart move Bones Legacy shipped the Big Twin to it's original builder Dave Brackett to do the repairs. Dave received the Big Twin this week and below are some pictures he took of it on arrival. I saw the Big Twin every day at AEE but I don't think I ever saw it missing the two outside Goodyear Blue Streaks (which they removed for shipping). Kind of looks like a funny car from the rear! enjoy the pictures and also a summary story by Dave I will post in a bit. Dave is a magician and a genius and he will take very good care of his baby I'm sure!

There currently is on Ebay an AEE seat and pad in brown. While I never liked them they do look right on some chops. If nothing else they are in superb condition considering their age....and the pad still has the AEE part number tag on it. It would be real easy to have them recovered by someone like the Haifley Brothers in black and have a real nice looking AEE seat and pad.....
