I thought you might be interested in seeing my 'Horny Air Cleaner' featuring part of an original '34/'35 bugle Ford horn. I couldn’t make this puppy live without a kustom backing/mounting plate, made by my good friend Lee Wimmer of Wimmer Machine.



That's NOT the bike it will be going on. I just HAD to see how it was going to look on a bike. Eventually it's going on a Shovelhead chopper I'm working on right now.



OEM '35 Ford horn. 





Bugle portion of my original horn with horn unit detached.





New 'backing adapter' designed and made by Lee Wimmer. And one of Lee's chrome mounting units for his 'Super Sucker' Air Cleaners.

This unit was built specifically for an S&S shorty carb.

Waggaman, Wimmer, and Women. Nice article. My memory shot back to Lee Wimmer's Kobalt Kruiser. All the K's tell us right away that Brian Klock was instrumental. I read about Mr. Wimmer's bike in "How to Hop-Up and Customize Your Harley-Davidson Bagger" by Timothy Remus. This was 2004 and the builds in this book from Wolfgang Publications still personifies what a bagger can be.
