“Quicksilver” is a drag/show bike originally built in 1960 by famous builder Dean Lanza. It is a 1948 dual carb H-D Panhead with the oil system running inside the frame. The quicksilver campaigned on the show circuit for 13 years winning multiple awards and was featured in many chopper magazines. Owner Ryan Grossman started with just the frame and rebuilt the show bike, as is, to it’s complete form referencing old chopper magazine articles.
