The Caesar's ... La Royale Scot

I know we are not so much into H.D here but Caesar from El Cerrito CA, send us the story of his 1984 FLHP and we like it. Here is the story ... Caesar has also 35 years of experience as a surfer



It started out as a 1984 FLHP Honolulu Police Dept auction bike. It was used as a road test bike for rookies to train them in the pineapple and sugar cane fields doing pursuit maneuvers. It still had pieces of sugar cane and pineapple leaves lodged under the fenders when I won her. Engine and transmission were originally in a swingarm frame (I still have it - it will be for my next project w/ a 1938 Harley UL engine). Bike is nick-named "La Royale Scot" for my wife.

Just a footnote : after I painted and started to assemble the frame, I saw this old bicycle with a head badge on it's frame and swiped it to put on my motorcycle frame. Hence the name of the motorcycle and a coincidence that my wife is of Scottish decsent. How appropriate! Here's the head badge on the frame.
