Joe's '78 Shovel
I built this one from the ground up.
The motor began life as HD's first new 80" in late '78. As you can see
not much about it is stock any more.
The frame is raked 5 degrees over stock and streched 2".
The motor still has the stock flywheels but thats it.
Wiseco 10 to 1 pistons
S&S sidewinder barrels
Velvatouch lifters,(a recent addition)
Supertrapp exhaust system
S&S super 'G' carb
Andrews gears in the tranny
I added the dual disc brakes to the '56 lower legs
with Russell stainless discs, the tubes are 6" over stock.
I powdercoated the rims, frame, cone, primary cover, rockerboxes,
headlight, tanks and fenders.
Primo belt drive connects motor & tranny
I squeezed a Metzler 150-15 on the
rear and a 21" Metzler on the front
This unit screams! I smoke those $30,000.00 evos on a regular basis, though I've less than $8,000.00 invested in my Shovel!
