This 1984 FLH SHovelHead was the first bike I had the pleasure of working on here in Stuart Florida,The Beautiful Treasure Coast. No telling how many hours went into this. Back in the Good Ole Days when Donna was my Partner in grime(LOL GET IT GRIME???) Pay close attention to the bright work on the back you can clearly see the difference. A few of "Doc's friends stopped by & they did not recognize the bike after some convincing they all admitted they had NEVER seen that bike so clean.
You may have noticed the Bucket with the the yellow stuff in it. Mind you I am fresh from the Slo'Cala area (at that time)where the water is very clean ,As the bike is air drying , I take a break & have a smoke and I notice thise purple spots appearing! I try to wipe them off to no avail! I am totally freaking out!! Old original Lacquer paint my mind is racing !!
I'm going to have to paint this whole bike !! Donna is gunna send me packing!! No more paradise!! No more Donna no more detailing!! Screw me!!!
Well after the water, the cruddy iron water that stinks to high hell completely dried the spots went away! Needless to say I was totally relieved & had to take a nap & then a ride to calm the hell down, I never told Donna I already tortured myself enough. True Story you can't make this shit up folks Now-A-Days I use city water filtered & cleaner water to rinse
