My name is Wes Slayton, and this is my 1980 shovelhead. I’ve had this bike for about 6 years now. I picked it up as a stock bike from my buddy Stephen Webb @capefeariron here in Wilmington NC. Rhett @butcherchoprhett from The Butcher Chop hardtailed and built my sissy bar for me. That dude is awesome, super talented and one of the nicest guys on the planet. This bike was built to ride. It’s a perfect combination of an around town ripper and a very comfortable highway bike. I can pack that sissy bar, lean back and chill! I’ve done a few 1000 mile trips on that old bike, and it always seems to get me back home.
I own Custom Destruction, we sell new helmets and restore vintage style motorcycle helmets. I’ve been doing this for almost 10 years now. I honestly can’t believe I get to walk into this shop every morning and work for myself, and not have to borrow any money from my wife! Our community of riders are so supportive of small businesses within our world, and by world I mean the whole planet! I send these helmets to Australia, Japan, Germany, Ireland, England, you name it, I’ve sent helmets there. If you are looking to get a new, low profile helmet find me on Instagram @customdestruction
