Looking very similar to AEE's famous Shovelhead we have Klaes Palmgren's chopper. I do not have all the details yet but he had it in the US at one point. Pictures of the bike and some of his girlfriend with one of Tom's "cat's in front of the publishing company after AEE went out of business.

Courtesy Paul Ponkow at Bones Legacy here is a shot of Big Twin's fuel tank receiving the needed body filler prior to paint......not the two caps. One is for fuel and the other goes all the way through the tank to the oil tank hidden below (down between the two engines)......another brilliant design by Dave Brackett the builder of Big Twin at AEE Choppers.

These are the original Goodyear Blue streaks that were put on Big Twin 45 years ago by Dave Brackett and the crew at AEE Choppers. Bones Legacy is cleaning them up and going to put them back on Big Twin. Other than the repairs Dave did to the chassis and new paint and upholstery Big Twin is as original...chassis, body, girder, rear end, wheels, tires, engines, trans....amazing its all still there and going to wow us one more time! don't forget 4 of these big boys go on Big Twin!

Take two Suzuki 550 engines and couple them together to make a straight 8, mount it across the front of the frame and body you design and build, run it through a C4 trans to a rear end you design and build, hang on a springer of your own design, throw some sprint car size tires on and fire it up and go riding! That's Dave's new crazy fun trike....great to see it and Dave on the road.....

Dave forwarded this cool picture from 1966. This was Dave's street car!!!! Crazy...he added a trunk on the roll bar for this trip with his girlfriend at the time. The sign she is holding says "we made it". Looking at the size of the fuel tank you can imagine that it took some doing to get to Sequoia from SoCal. What a cool street rod. People have similar things these days but they drive them to shows or cruises they don't take trips in them! Thanks Dave you the man!

Not a chopper but I admire any kind of fabrication genius and Dave is sure that. He works on many projects for others (including mine) and he mentioned he was working on a "T" so I asked for pictures and ehre they are....Dave said "The T has a flathead with 3 two's, very old school. Had a stick tranny, I put in an automatic, changed brake pedal setup. mounted gas tank, built roll bar. seat frame, seat belts, redid steering, made driveshaft, rear motor mount, mount shifter, tranny oil cooler, and lots of little things to make it the way the owner wants it. "
