Still can't believe it..

After all these YEARS, one of my bikes made it on the cover of The Horse!! That's been a dream of mine ever since the mid 80's back when I first started building my first H-D (my Sporty that I posted awhile back) when Chris Pfouts was Editor and David Snow was the Assistant Editor..man I fucking read and looked over those mags till the pages fell out, I couldn't get enough!!! For those of you who were fortunate enough to read some of Chris Pfouts editorials as well as the trials and tribulations with his Indian project and then thru the Snow era, those were some of the greatest articles written which in my opinion really kinda set the stage for the way things are now. I still read each issue front to back in one sitting but now I see alot of my brothers in there as well which really makes me feel good but those issues with Indian Larry (RIP) Paul Cox,English Don,Steg Von Heintz,Flynch and Fritz had an impact on me that still influences everything that I build to this day..personally I can't think of a better bike than my Knuckle for The Horse and I'm truly humbled that it's on there..like I said..a dream come true!!! Roadside Marty

  4. I'm right there with you on being influenced by the old IH and looking forward to reading everything they published. I does my old heart good to see great people and good Brothers show up in the pages of a magazine that's been such a part of my life. Congrats Marty!

  10. Well deserved! This knuckle has got to be in the top 10 of choppers ever built. It's a survivor with all the right touches.
