His chrome away from home


Mike Norgard and his Hydra-Glide: Cuban heritage with some Canadian shine.
   AND NOT every Harlista is Cuban. Havana-based oil industry consultant Mike Norgard is a Canadian who came south to share the knowledge he acquired in the oil fields of Alberta.
   He acquired his 1951 Harley-Davidson Hydra-Glide "in pieces" three years ago in Havana. Now the Harley that may well have originally served the Batista-era military is a showpiece with flawless chrome and gleaming white paint.
   Mike says his regular trips back to Edmonton were a big help in the restoration project.
   "I'm lucky," he says. "I can bring parts home and get them plated."
