A Rare Treat

I had a treat last Thursday morning. Carl Olson, his son Matt, and two of their buddies stopped in at my shop since they were in Minneapolis for the Kennedy High School Chopper Class open house.

What a great bunch of guys! And what a great bunch of bikes! Four Knuckleheads (the bikes, not the guys) the oldest being a 1939, and the newest a 1946.

And these bikes get ridden! Two of them were ridden from South Dakota, one from North Dakota, and one from Iowa.

After only the slightest hint at arm twisting by Matt, they sent me out for a ride on their unrestored 1941 with only 13,000 original miles. Not a bad start for my first ride of the year!

If you'd like to know more about Matt and Carl, you can check out nearly any issue of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America's magazine, or take a look at the web site for Carl's Cycle Supply
