Hillbilly's Wicked Choppa - VA

My buddy HB is workin' on a repop of an old AEE "wing" tank for a customer out in Vegas for his deraked Panhead chop. HB contacted Duane Ballard who put him in touch with Dave Brackett via the innerweb. Dave used to have a hand back in the early days with Tom McMullen. The next day Dave called HB about the "wing" tank and they spent about an hour on the phone, Dave sharing cool old stories and tales of the heyday of choppers back when.

The deraked pan:
