Shop Crawl: Deluxe H-D

In Gillette, Wyoming there is an H-D dealership by the side of the highway. I visited there years ago and met the owner and operator by the name of Chuck Deluxe (yes, that is his real name) After talking for a bit he took me in the back of the shop for an ice cream (a tradition there at the time) and showed me around. Then we walked over to a big warehouse full of vintage bikes and a massive amount of dirt track racers. It was an amazing experience indeed talking to somebody in a small town who had such a big personality and knowledge of both old H-D bikes as well as then newest of new. Sorry to say that Chuck has since passed on, but he has left a great bit of his own heritage that still lives on. Every year to or from Sturgis I go by Deluxe H-D and pay my respects to the man and his amazing family who work so hard to keep his memory alive.

    Chuck was one of the greatest men iv ever meet. He really taught me a lot. Not only about motorcycles, but about life. He will be missed for sure.
