My Hardtail

I've had this '71 Shovelhead for a long time, I started rebuilding the bike over ten years ago and other other things came up and the Harley was backburnered. I'm now in a position to complete the bike, the engine is a fresh 74" Shovel with an S&S 4 3/4" stroke kit with .050 over barrells, Andrews "B" grind and S&S carb, heads are just rebuilt 74 inchers. The bike has a Paughco frame and the tin is all aftermarket stuff, it will again have a jockey shifter and suicide clutch with a 3" open belt, the new tire on the front is a Metzeler ME33 90/90-21 and I will be deciding on the rear shortly, either a 140/90 or 150/80-16 ME880. I guess this is an oldschool bike by todays HD riders, I was kinda looking to make it appear like a Hot Rodded early bike, it won't win any shows, but its interesting to me.







This is what it looked like ten years ago...

Ahhh man thats truely sweet!! ..and don't cut yourself to short by saying its not a winner or todays Harley riders..you indeed got yourself a class act!

I'm still somewhat kicking ass for selling my 1962 pan & 1968 right shift Sportster years back.

Now would that be a Pitbull lift??

Scott, I updated your post to pull in the pics. You had links to the web page with the picture, not an actual link to the picture itself. When you want to pull in pics, right click on the image and go to properties and then copy the link.

Thanks guys, I wasn't really putting the bike down, it's just not a high dollar show deal, there's alot of cleaned up well used parts going back on it, but I am proud of it. The bike lift is a Sears Craftsman unit I just picked up, they are currently on sale for $99. ($89. for tool members), I thought it worked out cool that the lift matched the bike, but the paint is the same in all 4 pics, it just looks different from lighting. I know exactly what your talking about Windburn, I knew if I sold this bike I'd regret it someday, the money would have evaporated and the bike gone. I'll continue to post pics as this project progresses, that'll help keep my motivation in high gear too.

it looks nice, but i like it better in pic with no gas tank installed. tells me you should try other tanks till it looks right.



my opinion though, it's your bike.

Yep, what looks right is totally subjective. There are several things I would choose to change about the bike if I had a bigger build budget, but the tanks aren't one of them. I should have some more pics comming next week once my new rear tire arrives, I ordered a Metzeler ME880 150/80-16 to go with the ME33 90/90-21 thats on the front (also new). I think the 150 will look a bit tougher than the old MT-90 that it currently has, not to mention that the old Dunlop looks like a dirt track tire.
