Faber Cycle & Machine
Friends & Customers Bikes
This is our opportunity to showcase some of our friends, their bikes, and some of our customers, and their bikes... some of which we are partially, or totally responsible for.
At Left you will meet the likes of Jimmer, (and Olive Oyl ridin shotgun) who, single-handedly, is responsible for this website, and getting me to actually use a computer. (Personal Note from Jimmer: Tom was single-handedly responsible for getting me ridin! Thanks Pal!)
Also you may recognize "Rosco" a local brother of ours, and biker "cult hero" who has been featured in Cycle World, HDs web site, the cover of International magazines, such as "Real Biker" (Japanese mag), and seen on TV's Sturgis and Daytona segments, being interviewed about his 1933 VLD Harley.
Rosco has also been featured in the "Harley
People" book, and has a worldwide reputation for riding his '33 VLD
including his trip from
My claim to fame is that we rebuilt his highly modified 80" stroker flathead motor, a week before he left... and he rode without incident.
The purpose of this page is to emphasize, that one need not fear riding a properly prepared VL, and can reliably go many, many miles. People generally have a "pre-conceived" misconception that, a "total loss" oil system is not road worthy ............. WRONG! In the 30s people made the first distance, and coast to coast records, riding them.
Any "mechanically inclined" person can get to know a vintage bike, and ride it to far away places. We hope you enjoy the pictures of our friends and us doing just that!
The classic beauty on the right belongs to Pigbait.
We hope youve enjoyed our friends and bikes page. Thanks for taking the time to ride with us.
