OEM Springer

I'm stoked to finally have a springer. I threw it on the frame to get an image and the lines in my head are flowing. It has a one inch stem but the axle holes are for a star hub with a tapered shaft. I'll have to bore those holes to 3/4" inch.

Now, I just have to arrange for frame and motor modification. Ninety-six inch stroker!

Cold Weather

As the cold weather sets in, I'm beginning to scheme on the Shovelhead. I've taken off the tanks and drained them to find a half inch of sawdust sitting on the frame. The guy I bought it from had the bike stored in his wood shop. I removed the Super B and tore it apart to dip it. It had some crusty shit in it but it cleaned up really well. I'm positive that I'm getting rid of the Super Bowl/accelerator pump set up. It came with the original bowl so that'll go back on.

I still can't decide whether or not to keep it a swing arm frame or hard-tail it. I really like the looks of the forged axle plates being reproduced but I also have seen some wicked swing arm shovels being built in Japan. I have a friend that has the chrome shocks I'd run with a round swing arm but he may want too much for them. More details and photos to come!

New Project Bike

1979 Shovelhead 1200.

I constantly tell the older folks around me, "If you know anyone with an old Harley sitting around, let me know. I might buy it." Well, that shit finally paid off. And I got a killer deal on this shovelhead. It has a little over thirty thousand miles and, believe it or not, does NOT leak oil. It came with some extra parts, service manual and receipts from when it was rebuilt in 1990. The guy I bought it from said he probably hadn't put over 1000 miles on it since the rebuild. The bike basically sat in his garage because of a low speed accident that banged him and his ol' lady up pretty good. It has an S&S Super B carburetor that I'm excited about. The whole bike needs to be gone over but what old Harley doesn't? I even drove it home after buying it!
