I want My Shovelhead. Pleasing The Queen In Green And Pink

This is the story of a biker forgetting to pick up his FLH in a bike shop during more than 4 years, of the shop owner’s wife wanting it for her and getting exactly what she wanted, in fluo green and pink.

Warning to all those who don’t pay their bill when their bike is ready and think that bike shops are a free and safe storage place. In conditions varying from State to State, you will be liable for a big storage fee in addition of your original bill to be able to ride again your bike. And if you don’t, after a certain time of abandon, your shop may request your motorcycle title transferred to the shop name. 

Sara is married to Kevin Boyle, owner of Motorcycle Medic, and every day she had to look  at this 1983 Shovelhead whose owner was called on the phone every month during 4 years to get each time a new chance to pick it up. She fell in love with the old FLH, pictured herself riding it although she didn’t know how to ride, except sitting on her husband bike’s back fender with no pegs and feet up on the gas tank.

Well, after a 3-day motorcycle training course, Sara got her license, then went to the proper agency to get the FLH title and started to bug her custom builder husband to have it customized following her precise instructions. And as Kevin told me, I had to please the Queen…Sara is now a (very visible) daily rider in her home town of Pittsfield, MA, I bet that now everybody recognize Sara The Queen. The Motorcycle Medic

    I actually like the colors. Might have gone with black hand controls but that’s the only change I would make. I don’t think I would ride it but the colors work with the bike and somehow make it look much more contemporary for its actual year.

    On a second glance, I could also do without the “rust wrap” on the pipes. I understand why they did it (the no chrome thing) but it looks sloppy. Black pipe shied would look better.

    Love the bike. Hate the colors. But if you love them and they make you happy, that’s all that matters. Good man for making his woman happy. Because as we all know, if they ain’t happy then no ones happy.

    For pink and green, not a bad looking bike.
    This is a good story for all those folks who leave there cars and motorcycles at shops well after time for pick up.
