Offbeat: Extreme Garage Makeover

PARAGOULD, AR--Lee Dillard loves his Harley's.  With that love he decided to do his own version of TV's "Extreme Makeover, Home Edition," only Dillard used his garage.

Dillard calls it his "Harley Room" because it's all about Harley Davison motorcycles.  He's got Harley orange and black on the walls with the same colored tiles in a checkerboard pattern on the floor.  The walls are covered in Harley parts and pictures of the bikes he's owned over the years.  He's got an old juke box, a pool table, poker table, darts, and a refreshment bar. The 30 X 30 two car garage also has heat and air and two bathrooms, one for bikers and the other for babes.

Dillard says his wife told him he might as well put in a bed for as much time as he spends his "Harley Room."  For Dillard, it's a gathering place for cook-outs and fellowship and a place for him to share his love for Harley Davison bikes.
