Pirate Bike – 1976 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead

Tasmanian bike builder, Don Shand, was inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean movie for the theme of his latest build, a 1976 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead. We caught up with him at Richardson’s H-D 2013 Australia Day show and shine. Understandably he picked up a trophy for his efforts and said he intends to be back next year for when its finished.
