We featured a few home-built bikes by 69-year old Bob Decker a few years ago that were built to look like a Simplex and an Indian Chief yet used a conventional V-twin lawn mower engine with a centrifugal clutch. Now 72-year old Bob Decker offers his latest creation from scratch, another throwback nostalgia bike built around a 35hp vanguard V-twin sans front fender and other amenities. Bob does most of the fab work in his own garage and as you can see is never fully satisfied with his new creation, leading him onto his next bigger and better one. Bob sent me chassis dyno results for this little putt-putt and he had it up to 106 mph on the dyno printout. Keep them coming Bob. We are definitely going to get to his fab shop to do a feature story for an upcoming issue.
