Sporting the powerful blue shade BMW lovers couldn’t miss a mile away, this seductive R80 custom by Ian Solley of 7 Ages almost makes us cry. Every detail modified, this beauty is truly one of a kind with the frame converted to a hardtail and forks from the Harley-Davidson FXD.
It was a team effort from fellow experts glad to lend a hand.  Dave Batchelar of P&D reshaped the tank, created the side panels, and the front fender/rear fender seat unit. Sick 23 inch wheels by Steve Taylor with the traditional snowflake style rims grip the road, proudly showing off its Supertrapp race mufflers, custom bars, Oberon indicators and mirrors, modified Harley headlight.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
