A Father's Day Feature
By Stealth with photos by Vicki
June is the month of Father's Day, so I thought I would do a father and son bike feature. The story begins with me hanging out at Maddog's Custom Cycles one Saturday. A poker run is in progress and this spot is a stop.
When all of the bikes roll in, I take off for the parking lot to check out the sites. I come across this bad ass blacked out 98 Dyna. I never located the owner but I left my card and a couple of days later Geoffrey gave me a call. A plan was laid out to meet and shoot his bike. Geoffrey's dad Glenn showed up at the bike shoot with his Road King, that is when I came up with the father-son bike feature for Father's Day.
The story of how Geoffrey obtained his Dyna is one of motivation and determination. You see Geoffrey is all of 19 years old and he has had this bike since he was 14! Geoffrey and his Dad spotted the black beast way back then. Geoffrey had already been bitten by the Harley bug at the age of 14.
His dad made him a deal to get the bike. Geoffrey had to finish high school and attend college before the paperwork exchanged hands. Geoffrey has been working on his Dyna for five years.
The black beast reminds of a SONS OF ANARCHY bike! The all black and no nonsense look tell you this bike means business. It has Sceamin' Eagle heads, Vance & Hines exhaust that has been ceramic coated. In the looks department it sports diamond cut cylinders, twisted front spokes, and one of the coolest features I have ever seen is the way the speedo mounts in the handlebars, that is one bitchin' set up!
Dad's bike is called the "The Train" because he says it really "hauls the freight!" So I guess it moves along pretty well. Glen tells me has the paper work to prove the Road King puts out 91 horse power and 98 torque!
His Road King is rock solid and never lets him down. Glenn's bike is a little more on the conservative side but it has that classic Harley look.
The Road King runs Rhine hart exhaust, front and rear wheels have been polished and it has a horn that sounds like a train, and I heard and all I will say is it is LOUD!
This was a fun feature to do; both Geoffrey and his dad Glenn take GREAT pride in their bikes. Geoffrey being only 19 years old, well it says a lot about his talent and skill as he dis-assembled and re-assembled his bike with some help from his dad.
In a few weeks it is Father's Day, call your dad, if you can. If he rides go for a ride with him. I know that is what Geoffrey and his dad will be doing!
Until next time, RIDE!
