Black Shadow Touring model

Scott from Canada recently started a K17 subscription, and sent some pictures of his very nice looking Touring Shadow, before and after versions.  Click the thumbnails to see a larger version of the pics.  Here is a short history of the bike in Scott’s words:

“Here are some more pics of my Shadow.  This first one was taken moments before it was disassembled for restoration September 1992 so as you can see it is a real Touring model.  Brent Mayfield, the owner at the time, told me he had ridden the bike up and down the street just before the picture was taken and then they tore it apart.  Brent did a lot of the paint work and had all of the original fasteners replated and then turned everything over to Mike White who rebuilt the motor and then did final assembly of the complete bike, finishing in early spring 1993.  Mike told me it was the last and best complete Shadow that he ever did!  I can attest to it being a typical Mike White quality engine, it started for me second kick after it sat as a museum piece all those years.”
