Rhett Holley’s Root Beer Float Scott Peck Harley-Davidson Shovelhead
Jul 17, 2020
Rhett Holley’s Root Beer Float Harley-Davidson Shovelhead that he built for and with the help of Scott Peck. Opening spread from Club Harley Magazine (Japan), July 2020 issue.
Rhett Holley’s Root Beer Float that he built for/with Scott Peck is one beautiful machine. Starting life as a 1975 Superglide, he and Scott Peck, the customer that commissioned the bike and helped with much of the build, found this Shovelhead in a barn with the front wheel sticking through a hole outside the barn.
