1981 Shovelhead chopper
Ok, unlikely anyone remembers but I had an accident over 2yrs ago now and my riding days are behind me. (I was hit while on my twincam. Not on this bike.)
This is a classic Harley Shovelhead hardtail with a girder front end. titled as a custom build but of course the plates expired about 2yrs ago now. Bought several years back and did a full off restoration and rebuild.
FX frame, not sure of brand but from 1981 timeframe (when it was titled).
Durfee girder front end
HD CV Carb
Delkron lower end with S&S 81" flywheels & Pin built by DarkHorse Crankworks
S&S Top End 88" Sidewinder big bore, S&S Pistons original bore
Crane Cam (forget the number but iirc its a -B, normal, mild cam), Crane Hydro pushrods,
S&S Heads (powdercoated)
Daytona Twin Tec ignition
drum brakes rear
coffin gas tank with sight tube
custom sissy bar built w/ HD on the end (funny story included) and chromed by Bright Metals in the heights.
Also to include:
I have an easy up jack and a new (albeit dated) rear spare tire
4spd, kick only trans, front fender for the girder, extra set of exhaust pipes (black), extra BDL primary belt, transmission socket.
When I had my other accident, I had the tank and rear fender off the chopper because I was getting ready to paint. I had the accident and it hasn't been touched since. If you want to test ride then your'e welcome to help me put on the fender and tank. Since it was being prepped to paint though, the tank was bare metal and now has a light rust dust on it. Filters would work fine to crank and test ride but I wouldn't advise depending on it a lot until you repaint. Rear fender is still painted though, matching front fender that's included.
