I have been fortunate enough to work at the same place, Pearl Harbor, for 25 years.

Working may not always be a "bed of roses," but I am thankful for what the Shipyard has provided me and what it has allowed me to provide for not only myself but my family.

With this in mind, I wanted to create a bike as sort of a milestone. I wanted something that I could use for every day riding and something that was "user-friendly."

So, I decided to build a Bobber bike.

I started out with an old Santee frame that was picked up from Custom Chrome show a few years ago. Then, I purchased some invader rims from Chica Cycles. My partner in crime, Mel. ordered the S&S 93-cubic-inch motor.

I had several bobber notions doing donuts in my mind.

• First, I wanted to modify the frame to allow a drop seat incorporating leaf spring action.
• Next, I wanted to manufacture as many components as I could.
From the handlebars, the battery box, sissy bar, starter housing, 7-inch front caliper bracket, gas tank modifications, motor mount, rear brake mount, oil tank, exhaust, and some of the other required brackets.

We made 'em ourselves.
