large_hands_grant This is @kingkustoms awesome pan shovel he built and rode to #bf6 (winning best chopper) At closing time inside #oilysouls2 in Detroit. I think while I was taking this picture some dude that was waaaay too drunk that actually worked in the distillery almost got his face rearranged by Bobby for messing with his chick! Good times! We then proceeded to perform amazing karaoke at the Comet. 2d

large_hands_grant @leadfistcycles and his super cool VL gen shovel outside the #oilysouls2 show in Detroit after unloading it from his Jeep! Kyle was a participant in this years @show_class_mag People's Champ contest for Born-Free and even though he didn't win that he won Best Shovelhead at #bf6 and Best In Show at Oily Souls! Plus a little something else you'll find out about soon. That and he and his chick are super nice people! 3d

large_hands_grant Happy Monday! Back to chopper stuff! "The Bad Hombre" hummer tank on the left and a farout fantasy tank by @dbabin on the right. Gotta build bikes around both of these someday, but right now I'm gonna put new brake pads on my truck for my drive to Detroit. 2w

large_hands_grant Boys of summer... Clyde has an uncanny resemblance to Don Henley from Boys of summer and also a young Michael Landon... You be the judge. 2w

large_hands_grant When rebuilt my shovel into this version roughly 6 years ago I never shaved the brake stay off the lower leg because I wanted to eventually run the early 'glide drum...fast forward and I finally built a star hub wheel to replace the spool wheel and polished up the backing plate and put it all together! Now to get the brake to actually work... #chopperproblems 2w

large_hands_grant Sure wish I found these 16" Halibrands 15 years ago when I was building my Model A sedan, but I guess today was close enough. Early ones with Inglewood slicks that look like they never got run... Found em in the most unlikely place too. 2w

large_hands_grant Been off and away from Instagram for about a month now and it sure was nice to converse with people in person more than using "un" social media. Did lots of fun stuff, went out of state a few times, went to some close friends birthdays, and more all without boring you guys! Anyway, do what you gotta do with your phone but maybe try and put it down more? Life goes by fast!
Yesterday was three of my favorite people's birthday which was great, but a little sad to also have sold my panhead to try and make some other stuff happen. You win some, you lose some!
If you tried to get a hold of me here, I wasn't ignoring you, I just hadn't opened IG til now...

  •   briandavidwatson Had 60 humans deep in the bush on bikes in a place that purposely had no reception. So refreshing. Then we got back and shit hit the social media fan so everyone can stay in touch. Gotta find a balance 3w
  •   namaste_bitches27 @amandajane_xo he's alive! 3w
  •   photobyjj @large_hands_grant so to get you up to speed on IG world.. a bunch of dudes have a lot of cool stuff. all the hot chicks travel a lot and like yoga. Selfies at the beach are cool, but were at maximum velocity now. Riding pics with your bros is still cool, but u score optimal points now if it's captured in a forest. Me I keep it real by shooting my food and dropin lots of #bitchenhashtagsyo 3w
  •   amandajane_xo @namaste_bitches27 who knew!!! 2w
  •   birdsthewordphoto I just did 3 days in the woods on a river with a lake right up the road & No Phone Service. It was bliss. 2w

large_hands_grant @dagosspeedshop got me thinking about my old '72 C-10 today I built years back when I worked for Classic Trucks Magazine...wish I still had it!!! It was killer except body and paint. Rode and drove awesome with all the CPP stuff underneath and I did a 5.3L LS/4L65 swap... Someday I'll do another... 1mon
