We recently had an epic road trip that we’ll remember forever. Follow along in Chapter 1 as we fly to St. Louis on a one-way ticket to buy a 1976 Chevrolet G20 Camper and trailer, then drive to Indianapolis to check out a lead on a survivor 1952 Panhead.
During the teardown process, we inspected and cataloged each item diligently and, during that process, we uncovered a couple of things; the engine was in better condition than we imagined and the vast majority of original components were in good condition and able to live again.
With the production of our in-house parts and collaborations with friends like Harley-Davidson and Dice Magazine on projects such as Bronco Bronze, we really don’t have a lot of time to devote to building custom choppers these days. In fact, it’s hard to find time to work on our own projects. But, when our friend Ryan hit us up with his thoughts on a Panhead he’s been dreaming up, we couldn’t turn down the chance to stretch our legs and help bring his vision to life.
We introduced this 1952 Harley-Davidson FL Hydra Glide in October 2020 when told the story of Prism Supply owner, Jake Hides, buying the bike from the seller who passed it off as a “pile of rust”.
Today, we’re working closely with Dice Magazine and Harley-Davidson to do a mechanical restoration on Bronco Bronze as we’ve affectionately named it as a node to the factory paint color “Bronco Bronze Metallic” it proudly boasts.
Follow along as we make a Prism Supply Chopper Seat Pan.
We've been working on these seat pans for a while to find the most universal pan for the chopper frame. You can modify them or use as is. Please see below dimensions to make sure it will work for your application.
Made in USA
Pan is made from 16 gauge mild steel
Contains two stainless steel mounting brackets with hardware
Dimensions are as follows:
28" overall length
13" long driver seat section
8.5" wide driver seat section
15" radius section (measured from bend to back of the seat pan)
We released a lot of parts last year that we’re really proud of and continue to develop more parts to be released this year. We believe it’s important to look back at where we’ve come from as we continue to forge our path forward. So, here’s a quick recap of a few of our favorite parts released in 2020 followed by a few products that we’re working on for release this year.
It’s no secret that Jake Hindes, co-founder of Prism Supply, is into vintage Harley-Davidson motorcycles. If the fact that he and his brother built a company centralized around the niche isn’t enough, proof can also be found in his current and past personal collection. From survivor ’60s choppers to fully-custom show bikes, he’s no stranger to the brand from Milwaukee. But, there is one box he’s yet to check.
