Subject:Did Dean Hummer ever BUILD a Hummer? Date:Sun Apr 27 11:47:56 2014
In the current Ebay listing for the custom painted 58B Hummer, the seller (garlic60) claims that the bike was one of only 30 Hummers that were "assembled" at Dean Hummer's shop in Omaha,Nebraska. It is now common knowledge that the Hummer was named after Dean because of his outstanding sales of Harley lightweights in the 50's. But, I have never read where Dean actually "built," or "assembled" any Hummers at his dealership, although he sold the heck out of them for years. Could someone please answer this question. Did Dean ever build or "assemble" a Hummer at his shop in Omaha, Nebraska?
