Well … it took a while, but I had a blast making this! It’s an old servi-car with a springer front end, knucklehead engine, hand-dovetailed storage box in rear, and tombstone taillights. Made it as authentic as possible from looking at just a few old pictures on the Internet; no plans. Considering turning it into a rocker; not sure yet. It’s quite heavy. Hope you enjoy viewing these pics. I sure had fun making it. More motorcycles are on the drawing board.

I’m afraid to ask how long this one took……one of the best projects I’ve seen in a long time. This needs to be on display in a Harley shop.

Man!! that’s a nice looking trike. Do the wheels spin so that it’s free rolling?

It’s very cool “as is” but making it move on a rocker would make it even cooler!

Fantastic! ready for the cop to put out parking tickets!

When I was younger—by a lot—the city we lived closest too used those for parking cops rides in the restricted areas. There were even a few like it that sold ice-cream during the 40 days of summer that ND has.

Totally agree on the Harley shop with, of course a nice name tag on it. Or send the pic to Harley Headquarters and await the response. Really well done – thanks for sharing this.

I could see my young grandson coasting down the driveway in this one…..... very nice.
Maybe you should consider marketing a plan for it ???

You have made a great model of the Servi car. Looks fantastic Personally I would not turning it into a rockler. That would make it a toy and now it’s a piece of art.

Absolutely amazing! The fenders, wheels and tires look like they were cut from a solid piece of wood!
You should be very proud!!
