CLASSIC THUNDER (formerly) ROLLING THUNDER
is now owned by William “Fuzzy” Jamison well known for servicing new and vintage Harleys

by Robert "the Great" Seymour

“FUZZY”, is a long time friend of new and old Harleys, Indians and their riders. His is one of the few shops that still services vintage Harleys, performing restorations, upgrades, and hop-ups. As a former employee, he recently acquired the shop and its facilities which has all the tooling to handle Harley Davidson motorcycles from 1912 to the present. He brings 23 years of professional experience, a good portion in association with Rolling Thunder founder, Ray Leffard.

Frugal living and the support of family and friends have served to perpetuate his association with motorcycles longer than many others. His remains one of the few shops still working on vintage bikes. Find him currently operating on 22001 Pacific Hwy S. #108 in Des Moines. 206-870-7482.

Although embracing work on new machinery, much of his operation comes from referrals by dealers less inclined toward servicing older machines. Some of these require unusual and extraordinary repairs. His years dealing with those problems have left him with surprising insights lending to recovering otherwise expensive restorations, and he is able to effectively communicate these to his vendors.

As a proud member of the Cossacks for 17 years, he regularly helps to maintain the majority of their half century old rides which are a main attraction in their stunt performances. Contributing to keeping these relics alive is a manifestation of his skills and is required as the Cossacks are repeatedly sought by Harley Davidson for official special events, including their 100th anniversary. Other organizations seek them out as well to please appreciating crowds who admire their well practiced riding skills.

Fuzzy has a rare 325cc '65 Mustang motorcycle (with 12" wheels) in his shop for repair, shown. It is the same model former member Dave Seymour used to race at the Jolly Rogers grounds against smaller 50cc 12" wheeled minibikes. (12" wheels defined the class). Picture the Mini trail Hondas going "zama zama" and Dave sounding like "rumble, roar, blam! blam! (backfire). He always led the start but the smaller bikes would pick him off in the corners.
