STAN TOMES' 1977 CONE SHOVEL
When we put the word out that Born To Ride was lookin’ for Reader’s Rides to showcase in the magazine, Stan Tomes, also known as Stanimal, was one of the first guys to send me an email. Stan and his bride Cookie, live in Inglis, Florida, and enjoy puttin’ year ‘round.

Stanimal was a Union Carpenter before retiring a few years ago. He has owned three different Shovelheads over the years but tells us that this 1977 Harley has gone through many different looks since he bought it from the original owner back in 1983. “It was a bone stock FXE Super Glide when I bought it,” Stanimal says. Over the years he has had the bike down to the bare frame eight times. “It was an FL style for years,” he tells us. “And a paint has been stock black, then midnight blue, then candy apple red, then all white and now this silver/blue.”
