Old Shedders Live to Rock - or is it - Die Old Disgracefully

The "Rocking Harley" has been taking shape in the Shed for more than a 18 months but it is finally finished and waiting for a good home.

Made entirely from timber, apart from the handle bars and grips and the leather upholstery,  the steering works, the wheels rotate and the badges are authentic Harley Davidson add ons. At 1300 long by 750 high and weighing enough to make one think twice before lifting it the bike will suit an adventurous pre school or early school aged child.  

After 100 hours in the making it is a little sad to see the end of the project.  The time taken to complete the rocker would have been less if the shedders hadn't kept suggesting changes to the original design but we did stop short of installing a Harley tuned sound effects module which created the characteristic exhaust tone when the bike was being ridden.

We now look forward to finding it a good home  and perhaps for the new owner it may be the start of a lifelong love of the two wheeled monsters.
