This is a very clean, mechanically sound Shovelhead. This motorcycle has a clear Title and is ready for the road. The bike has been customized a bit from a stock 1974 Harley Shovelhead and it has been built like a runner to ride. It starts easy, idles right out, and is very smooth through the gears. Bike was restored in 1993. Bike rides smooth and quiet.
June 2021: New S&S cylinder heads were just installed on the bike, 6-8 miles on the cylinder heads. Engine has been tuned and ready for more solid miles.
At 60 mph you can set throttle lock and take hands off bars and it rides straight. Best features are the stroker kit that gives it a low-end torque and the electronic ignition so you don’t have to worry about the OE points style ignition. There are a few scratches on rear fender but they are hard to see. Also a few scratches on left saddlebag lid. Upgraded fuel tanks are a benefit. Clutch and clutch Springs have been upgraded.
This motorcycle is ready for this riding season and is just missing a new rider.

NOTE: Bike was in an accident before the current owner purchased it. While impounded by police the accident was being investigated.
The police thought that since the VIN # was hand stamped and erratic it was falsified. The police would only release the motorcycle with a state # adjacent to original VIN#. Both are evident on VIN# pad. Current owner has state documentation reflecting this.
