From Camper to Trike Photos by Joel Overstreet / Street Photography Mark and Bobbi Dunfield are,without a doubt, two of themost understanding people I have ever had


the pleasure ofmeeting. This story begins February 14, 2010. Mark, being the hopeless romantic that he is, decided anewpop-upcamperwould be the perfect sur-


priseValentine’sDay gift for hiswife of7 years.Afterpicking a camper, getting a deal together andfilling out allof thepaperwork, they had towait for thefinancialdepartment to dotheir part of thiswonderful process. It for some unknown reasonwas taking an unusually long amount of time, so theDunfield's decided to go get some lunch. After lunch they somehow ended up looking at a new 2010 Fat Boy Low. The Fat Boy came home...the camper did not. Mark and Bobbi rode the softail for a year and a half and really liked it. The summer of 2011, after some


complaints fromhiswife,Markthought amore comfortable ridemightbeinorder, sothe searchbegan.They hadseen a fewtrikes onthe roadandthought itwould be just perfect.They couldride it together forawhile thenMark could get back on twowheels and Bobbi could ride the trike. They traded the Fat Boy in on a 2010 red hot SunglowFLHXXX. They rode their newtrike for a while


the nextday.This iswhere the story takes anasty twist.Theydecidedtogoshowoff the newtoy. The first place they rodewas to see a buddy of Mark's.When they got to his house, (We left out his name on purpose.) he askedMark if he could take it for a ride.Mark said "sure." The next greatquestionfromour soon-to-be stunt riderwas "Can Ipop awheelie?"That


question proved to be a very bad idea, butmark laughingly said, "Go ahead, it's fully in- sured!" So he jumped on the newtrike, fired it up, put it in gear and grabbed a handful of throttle.Thenhe blastedright across the street, straight intoa lightpole.WhenMark andBobbi got to him, hewas unconscious.As he came to, the firstwords outof his mouthwere "Man your bike runs like s___!" Okay, I knowyou'reall asking yourselves, andtheanswer is no,Markdidnot


kill him!With about $13,000 in damage, the poor trikewas towed to Hard Core Customs, byMark's friend Ralph at Certified Tow.Ralphwas already a customeratHardCore andknewtheywoulddo a great job getting the trike back on the road. Aftermonths ofwaitingonreplacementparts fromHarley-David-


son, andseveral trips toGladstonetopick outmorechrome,Bobbi said itwas themost funshopping experience she has ever had! They picked out a lot of newchrome and decided some cus- tompaintwouldlook nice.TothankHardCoreforall the hard work, theywantedtoput theHCClogo on the sides of the tank. Mark wanted it to look like a brand, burning into themetal, with some smoke-like flames coming off of it. "Mark and Bobbi were so cool about the


amount of time it took for this project to come together and theywere great toworkwith." said Kevin at Hard Core. So folks, once again our friends at Hard Core Customs take a very bad situation and turn it into something super cool!
