1957 Harley Davidson EL Rey Custom Panhead

When you translate EL Rey into English it comes out to be “The King”. One may think as the king of motorcycles, and the others may think as the king of custom designs. So you can interpret this into both meanings depending on what you want to follow.

How did EL Rey begun his life?

EL Rey begun his life as 1957 Harley Davidson, which was purchased on eBay, by Warren Lane and his brother Bill Lane. Together both brothers started rebuilding Harley Davidson into a beautiful EL Rey. Custom HD features 23″ front wheel, polished stainless spokes, hub, and rim, designed by Warren Lane. 1957 HD frame modified with twisted stainless steel, with handmade fuel tank with hidden mounts. 93″ Panhead, STD heads, S&S carb, Sifton 540, Morris G5 magento, runs perfectly when started. The bike also features suicide shift 6 speed in chromed Delkron case, custom shift leaver, and cut glass shifter handle. But the two brothers did not stop there they added handmade taillight using a 1954 Cessna beacon light.

I know that EL Rey has been in several magazines like, Vibes: August 5th, Vol 142, Wild: April 5th Vol 41, Biker Zone: Vol 154, and many more.
