While working in my buddy’s machine shop I noticed this interesting piece in his shop. When I questioned him on this, he explained what it was. Then he asked, if you could make a base for it that would be great. So off to my shop and I started thinking how could I make this look really nice for Paul. He has helped in so many ways. He taught me how to weld and helped me build an 8 inch inflatable sander or anything else I need help with.

I used some Blue Oak that I purchased from Tule Peak Timber (ex-Lumberjock Rob). I drilled the hole at 35 degrees on my drill press. Used 5 min epoxy to hold this beast in so it didn’t fall out. Cpl coats of Deft. I had the plate done at the local trophy shop.

Figured all you Harley Davidson guys would like this!

All comments welcome as always. Thx for looking.

What does it Lift?

At first, I thought it might be a flag lifter (holder)...

Sure looks nicely machined, etc.

A great looking display stand. I know it is a cam lifter in a Harley bike, but what is the story behind the piece?

It came out of Harley Race bike with a Screaming Eagle Engine. Paul helped machine some pats for them and they gave him one and its been in his shop for years.

Sorry, I was tired when I posted this and thought everyone could read my mind…. LOL

I’ll have to get the details from him to update.

Harley parts are a work of art. Nice way to display it.

Do you ride? That’s what I plan to do tomorrow.

I do ride both street and dirt bikes. Funny thing though is all my buddies ride hogs, I’m a crotch rocket guy. Sold my latest street bike and looking for another.
Have a great ride!

Ken. I ride cruisers and dirt both too, and often with crotch rocket guys as well.

If its got two wheels and goes, it’ll put a smile on my face. Right on.
