Seeking a way to use his motorcycle to raise money for folks coping with cancer, that’s the advice Stephen Wilson received two years ago from one of the Columbus area’s best fundraisers, Country’s Barbecue co-owner Scott Ressmeyer, a fellow Harley-Davidson enthusiast who has led Scott’s Ride for Miracles, raising more than $1 million since 2009 for the Children’s Miracle Network at Midtown Medical Center.

A Very Brief History of Motorcycles in the United States Military
CUSTOM 1975 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLH | SHOVELHEADS AREN’T DEAD
I purchased the bike back in 2003 on my 21st birthday. It was then that I got the urge to buy my first bike. The bike’s previous owner was an old family friend, and he moved to Chicago where it basically sat for years. After a few phone calls, a deal was struck and I was on my way to Chicago in my brother’s truck and two friends. It was pretty much a plain-Jane stock bike that was black with whitewalls and missing the crappy front banana caliper. I rode it around that way for about a month, and that was long enough before I had to start making it mine.
ARIZONA — (CNN) A big day for an Arizona veteran who is 101 years old. He was taken on a special ride in Prescott Valley.
It was called “One Last Ride” and for Ray Weser it was a ride of a lifetime.
“I’ll be 102 in December,” Weser said.
Weser says he fell in love with Harley-Davidson motorcycles as a young teen when he was working on a Harley.

The 2017 CVO Pro Street Breakout is back for the new model year, and for good reason. The ultimate Softail muscle cruiser features a stout 110ci engine, premium front and rear suspension, and aggressive styling that makes it a definite standout in Harley’s overall cruiser lineup.
John Diffee and Donna Owen help Stella Sarandis put on her helmet prior to her motorcycle ride that was on her bucket list. Headed from Warner Robins, Ga., to Macon's Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church for her 90th birthday party Saturday, Stella Sarandis thought her son was taking a wrong turn when he pulled into Whiskey River, a Pio Nono Avenue nightclub on the south side of Macon.
Nothing says success like excess. What happens when a build is taken to the nth degree? What happens when the budget and time are removed as factors and the throttle is turned all the way up? That’s essentially what happened with Johnny Klein’s 2003 Harley-Davidson Dyna called “El Chromeo.” Believe it or not, you’ve seen this bike in the pages of Hot Bike before. But Johnny isn’t able to settle as second best, and as the scene has grown and the bikes have gotten more and crazier, there was no way he was going to fade off into the pages of Hot Bike history. Shortly after the shoot, the bike was taken down to its core and started from scratch, this time with no expense spared. Here’s the result.
I picked up this bike as basket case about seven years ago, and even though I was building my first bike (a Twin Cam rigid), I knew that at $1,500 it was something I couldn’t pass. My original plan was to build more of a stock-looking Shovelhead with minor tweaks here and there, use up some of my spare parts I had lying around, and keep the original frame. I messed around with it for about a year whenever I had time and eventually realized that I was going to need to go a different direction in the build. I ended up ordering a stock rake 0 stretch rigid frame, and got it to a roller state. I then began to see in my head exactly what I was after.
