Grant Peterson's 1978 Shovelhead

Grant Peterson 78 Shovelhead

If you ride motorcycles, you know what the Born Free show is. I began attending the event on it's third year. Completely oblivious to who's who and what's what, I just rode out there with my friends, parked my bike, and just walked through the crowd of bikes in complete awe. Fast forwarding about a year, I began shooting photos for Wrench Magazine and eventually got the opportunity to shoot photos of the founders of the Born Free show, Mike Davis and Grant Peterson, along with the amazingly talented painter, Harpoon, for a Cycle Lodge article. Hanging out and shooting the article with Grant and everyone at the Lodge, his orange shovelhead always stuck out to me. Fast forwarding a year or so to now, I see Grant and all the guys at the Cycle Lodge quite frequently so it seemed like a better time than any to finally take some photos of the '78. The build is nothing showy or outrageous. Just a well-built, simple, and clean coned shovel with a great paint job by Harpoon
