I got an email from Michael Kneebone today stating that my Iron Butt runs this summer have been investigated and approved. It is official, i own the oldest harley Davidson to complete a saddle sore 1000 trip! Hooray. I couldn't find a picture of my bike on this computer, but I do have this dandy pic of my left tank with one of our repro 36 shift gates and arms on it! It will have to work lol.

This is to Certify that on July 26, 2009, Matt Olsen and Mara Butler rode a 1936 Harley-Davidson EL a total of 1,060 miles in less than twenty-four hours starting in Bellville, Ohio continuing on to Fort Wayne, Indiana, Madison, Wisconsin and Albert Lea, Minnesota before ending in Mitchell, South Dakota while participating in the SaddleSore 1000.


Here is a pic of my daddy's 39, I road this bike straight home from Wauseon last summer, in a day!
