These are some of the main shops I frequented while building my bike. I’m sure I could have bumbled around and eventually finished the project without their help. However; not only did they help me technically, but they indeed helped keep me somewhat sane and less frustrated throughout the build. I want to say that I appreciate each and every one of the people that helped me.
I will say though, going to the factory shops was a bit frustrating as when I went in for a part, they seemed to always want to know what it was off of. Of course, I had no idea, since this was a custom. But, after they heard my story a few times, they knew without having to recite it over again if I got the same parts guy again.
I would like to pay my respects to one guy at Route 66 HD that went way above and beyond. God rest his soul. His Name is Larry Dean Coatney. He was one guy that helped me the most when I was just about to give up trying to find some fittings for the gas tank, he went up in the attic of the shop and dug through some old boxes full of old stock. From then on, when I would go to Route 66 Harley, he was the only one I would let help me. He died coming home from a fund raiser on October, 17th, 2004. RIP Larry. You are missed!
