Jerry Gayle’s 1961 Panhead
Awhile back, Val and I traveled north to Palm Coast to shoot a drag bike(Featured in OSB), and while we were there, in rolls this 1960 Pan-Shovel, built by Larry Krouse, and now owned by Maniac Roberts. No, I have no idea why they call him “Maniac”…!!!
The 74 CID motor is 1960, set in a 1961 hardtail frame…no stretch, but, some moulding. The motor boasts solid lifters, S&S carb.,and an Andrews 480 cam. Power gets to the road through a mainly stock 1960 HD Tranny. Bike also features an antique taillight, and a hand made ostrich skin seat…neat!!!
Gracing the machine is our model for the day….Lauren…!!!
