Fifty-four years ago when I was working at an auto repair shop in Maywood, Illinois, there was “Babe” – a 1951 Harley ( ex-Chicago Police bike ) in the same building, but separated by a brick wall from the auto repair shop. Little did I know then that in the “Speed Shop” next door resided Babe.

That was until last year. A chance conversation with a friend led to us meeting and owning her.

I shot some video of our recovery of Babe from the “Speed Shop” and our first test rides once we got her running. Come share our first ride. . .

My crude video was transformed to this, by Pixie’s brother, Steve Gibson who also is now building our website.
