    Psychobilly Honda-Davidson

    Psychobilly Honda-Davidson
    There are many motorcycles that exist only in stories and legends that cruise the highways for years evading the public eye but exist as one of a kind bikes that survive simply because they are just too wild to die. These kinds of "one off" survivors are usually reserved for custom choppers but what about a custom hybrid Harley Honda full dresser? A Honda Davidson or quite possibly a "Harlonda?" Well, we met a gentleman,  Paul Atkins,  one year at AMA vintage days who owns not only one, but three of these incredible machines and he brought his  1966 Harley Davidson with an SOHC CB750 motor powering it to our Old Bike Barn crossroads bike show and the rest is history and an interesting one at that. We sat down with Paul this year to pick his brain about the origins of his blue beauty which he affectionately refers to as "Psychobilly" and also get some info on the other 2 of these wild hybrid machines he has chosen to own over the years.

    Through the long and complicated history of Harley-Davidson, there have been several infamous yet well-loved engines. 

    Among the most infamous and yet the most sought after today is the Harley-Davidson shovelhead. Name for its unique head design that looks like an old coal shovel flipped upside down, the shovelhead represented a troubling time for Harley-Davidson. Despite the challenges, Harley-Davidson sold motorcycles with the shovelhead engine from 1966 to 1984 and enjoyed an ever-increasing market share.

    1948 EL Harley-Davidson Panhead
    When it comes to vintage choppers just about everything under the sun has been done, so it takes a true craftsman to take the inspiration from other builders and projects and make it truly their own. A machine that stands out and continues the line of inspiration for generations to come. Such is the case with the very unique 1948 Panhead built by Dan Haas. Dan has spent a lifetime collecting antique oddities and sharpening his skills in metalwork and fabrication and his build is like a perfect blending of his love for obscure antiquities and the dedication to his craft. We spent a weekend with Dan in beautiful Daytona Beach Florida for the 2021 bike week and had the chance to get up close and personal with his incredibly "one off" machine. Something that you absolutely can not walk past without doing a double take at all the intricate details and custom brackets and fabrication.
