INTERNATIONAL MASONIC RIDERS
A SHOVEL HEAD FULL OF MEMORIES
This was my uncles bike. He left it to me when he past away. It is an
all original 1982 Sturgis with 14,000 mile. He and his wife spent 24
years in the USAF and retired they took this bike with them over sea's.
this bike has been all over Europe and this country.
7 months after they retired my Aunt Tammy Alford got cancer and died one
year later at 46 years old.
My Uncle Eric Alford could not live without his love and took to the
bottle. He passed away 3 years later at the age of 50. He never rode the
bike again after she passed. She bought it for him brand new in 1982 for
his birthday and they rode it everywhere together.
it is a great motorcycle and I just wanted to honor two great people and
there love of there cool bike and each other.
