Digger Monday...Thunder Stud

Check out Mark Yelk's pan/shovel digger. This bike was built for Mark by Ed Kerr. Both of these cats are from Pa, not exactly the mecca of diggers. Motivation for this ride is a '54 lower end with a late shovel top end. Everything's been plated or polished. The dual Bendix setup is 24 karat gold plated. The chassis consists of a hardhead on a factory rigid, springer, rocket tank, fender and license plate setup from the one and only Arlen Ness. Paint was applied by Flip of Flip's Custom Paint of Baltimore, Maryland.
NOTE: Mark's 3/4 hairdo is not D.O.T. approved, but does help with the steering of this exquisite machine.
