Happiness is a Shovelhead

Here is a pic from early in 2000 taken at Phil Howell's shop on Federal Blvd in Denver.

That's me next to my almost-redone Shovel. 

A word about Phil Howell -

Phil Howell is gone now. He is sure not forgotten. Phil was a great guy- great sense of humor, possibly the best HD motor mechanic in the region. Phil had a great shop on Federal where he sold parts, built bikes, did repairs, and modifications to bikes of all kinds. Phil raced Harleys, built race motors, bikes, and knew his stuff.  Just a fantastic guy, he is missed by the entire community in Denver.

Phil died a very untimely death a couple of years ago. I am sure he is riding around heaven on a rigid panhead and smiling.

 Thanks for everything, Phil. God Bless You.
