Aunt Flow – 74″ Shovel

Last year Justin bought a crusty as hell 77 lowrider in riverhead accross the street from splish splash. The bike looked like it had been crashed multiple times and rigged back together. But it was cheap. We did some minor cutting and welding then road it to brooklyn a few times and upstate. It rained every time. The bike basicly fell apart at the end of the summer and we had no choice but to build a chopper. As soon as it got cold in November we put it on a craftsman motorcycle jack and stripped it apart in the corner of my auto repair shop. We started buying parts, cutting, drilling, and welding it back together many sleepless nights after work and on weekends. We spent many late nights at Dudley’s basement building the drivetrain. It took us 10 months to complete and I think it came out pretty good considering we were drunk or hung over for 90% of the build. Huge thanks to our girlfriends Stef and Christy for being patient with us and providing liqour and tacos during the build process.
