Based out of the small town of Marshall, in the state of Michigan, the club officially was formed with its first fifteen members in October of 2004. Since the club’s inception, it has lost and gained members, lost and gained friendships, but stayed true to the original idea of its members owning cars and/or motorcycles, or both. We haven't strayed much further from the idea than that.
Simply put, we are a group of guys who, in one form or another, all dig the same stuff: Cars, Trucks, Bikes, Bands, Booze, Babes & Beers. We base our lives around our families and friends first, and the club second. We like to work on our own stuff and ride or drive it when we can; we have great parties and get-togethers, love our fellow members and respect their families, and ultimately just dig having a good time.

The "Somoan" is taking shape...

Cody has been working hard on his '52...

Codys putting together another award winner- "The Somoan"... as a past Billetproof Award winner looks on... "King Crimson"...

Cabe's "Lodestone" Chopper

This will eventually find it's way into the wishbone frame that Tanny's re-working for Cabe's "Lodestone" Chopper.
Out with the old butchered backbone/steering head and in with a new one with new tube to follow shortly...

Toughest part for Cabe on this one will be deciding on a seat... stay tuned we'll have this one rolling soon.

Tanny's Looong Triumph

The long bike's are coming out of the wood work at SS central... Tanny just scored this 70's survivor 750 chopper. Watch out summer of 2011- it'll look like 1972 all over again when the SpeedshifterS roll through town!

Way cool vintage projects are still out there waiting to be discovered!
Everything in these last four post's were bought very reasonably and with the combined skills of the boyz in the SpeedshifterS they'll all become
Glory Stompers!

Ferg's Plum Krazy Purple Rockabilly Bobber

Ferg just scored this sweet late 60's T100 based bobber! Some wiring and an ignition system should put this baby Triumph on the road to glory!

80 Spokes of pimp'in bling suckas!

Cabe's 70's Flashback panhead Long Bike

We got the frame blasted for Cabe's nod to chopper history. We also cut the neck free to get the correct rake- now it will be re-built with a new frame back bone and steering head. This will be the culmination of collecting parts for 10 years- a classic early 70's panhead chopper.

Naughtytown Bobber

Making a little progress on the Naughtytown Bobber. Adapted a '71-'72 OIF Triumph front forks and made an oil tank out of two fire extinguishers- can be seen behind the vertical down tube on the frame. A little at a time- she slowly comes together.
