Dick Allen. It amazes me that in today's information age there are still thousands of Chopper enthusiasts who don't know who Dick Allen was. This little section of the site will hopefully help to give this man the credit he richly deserves and educate newcomers in some of the historical information that surrounds our shared interests. Dick Allen was truly a legend in his own time and you can't say this about to many people. Darcy came down to California this year and managed to meet a lot of people that worked with her father.

Just A Car Guy: Dick Allen invented a lot for choppers, but most people have never heard of him
I was eight years old when my Uncle Wayne passed away unexpectedly in a car accident — a tragedy that sent a jolt of devastation through my family. But soon enough I would. She ended up buying a brand-new Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic, and eventually she and my father began to build her a chopper of her very own — a chopped Shovelhead. This was my normal. I did not realize that not all parents were riding around on motorcycles, let alone on choppers. For me, it was never a question if I would ride. Just when.

The pan with the sportster front end is one of my favorite bikes of all time. Thanks for posting pic. Great writeup on a great builder and innovator. Question- is the tank on Locomotion that is attached to the sissy bar an aux fuel tank? Yes that's an aux tank.
