After introducing you to Cris Sommers Simmons, the only American woman participating to this grueling cross country journey, a video of another participant: Bill Rodencal, Harley-Davidson Museum Archives Restorer And Conservator. Introduction to his 1914 Harley 10-B motorcycle that he will be riding in September.

    Gotta love it when someone has the respect and passion to bring the old iron back to life.
    There ain’t many unmolested left now a days.

    Thanks Cyril, Keep us informed on the progress about the Cannonball Run.

    Really amazing stuff and having built classic stuff before I appreciate the commitment to finding the original parts. Love it.

    I would have to think the Cannonball Run will be covered by one of the MC network programs. You would think that the History Channel would be interested. I would like to watch it, and find out their schedule and ride with them part way. Exciting!

    Bill is a great guy and real asset to the industry. I look forward to riding with him on the Motorcycle Cannonball IF I get my 1915 Harley finished and ready in time.
