Everyone knows the hardest part of owning a cruiser is keeping it stock. Initially, Holland played it cool. His first act was to add a windshield (later removed). Of course that was just the beginning. He wanted to make the back seat a little more comfortable for his wife, Carolyn, so a new seat was soon added, along with rear floorboards and a passenger backrest. Some minor stenciling followed, and shortly thereafter came the bike's first foray onto the show circuit. Much to Holland's chagrin, his bike finished in the runner-up spot. To add insult to injury, the winner was none other than the parts manager from Lee Kawasaki. Fortunately, Holland and the parts manager, Bob Culpepper, along with the shop's owner, Tony Lee, had become good friends by then, so the dueling pistols stayed holstered.
