During the summer of 1965 a new boy in town has his life changed when a stranger rides into town on a chopped Harley-Davidson Panhead motorcycle. Scorchy Black has left his troubled past behind in southern California. He arrives in a small Montana town with nothing but the stuff crammed in his saddlebags and a drive to succeed as the town's new blacksmith. The boy and the biker meet head on in the back lot of the shop and the summer's adventure takes off!

The individual chapters of "Me & the '53" take you through perspective changes that develop characters in the present tense then flashbacks to the past to describe how fate intervened to bring Scorch to town. This takes the Kid on the fast track to being the trusted student-recipient of Scorch's strong code of loyalty and morality and of his wisdom gained from years of life experiences. The Kid gets an education he could not buy at any cost, anywhere...even an Ivy League family 'pedigree' could not 'learn' the boy on life the way he learned from a true old 'highway historian'!
