78 Shovel out for the summer
My shovel. Well, the first shovel I ever had.
When I got it XV years ago, it had a bent up from an accident frame, more oil leaks than the Valdez, and just general "I don't ride anymore" d p o stuff.
It got a new santee frame back then. This is the 4th exhaust it's had. The painter DUDE painted the fender, seatmount, sissy bar thingy last year for me.
Every bike I do gets something I've never seen before or tried before. This go around is the seat suspension. It's an elastomer "bumper" inside the tubes below the seat. Yea, I know. Seat suspension on a swingarm bike is gay. But this isn't big olde skoole springs, and it really does seem to help.
