When I asked Chuck if I could post his Big Muskie picture here on RoadsideWonders, I also took a shine to his schhhhaaa-weeet ride and asked to include it in the Wild Scoots section … and he obliged 🙂
It’s a 1987 Harley Electra Glide. I purchased it from a friend of mine in 2000 with 73,000 miles on it then. It now has 220,000 miles on it. I had it painted in the American flag paint scheme in August 2001, one month before the terrible September 11 tragedy.
The paint scheme attracts a lot of attention and has been the source of a lot of fun. I’ve ridden up to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, California and all the states in between.
And then . . . I found out that he has another cool toy. Below the photo of his motorcycle, is an airplane that Chuck built! He finished it in 1979 and flies it regularly. It is called a Spezio Tu-holer (it has two seats — the front seat is covered up in this photo)
