I'm Baaaaaaaack...
Hey Fuggers, you can't get rid of me that easy... finished the Vette and got bored.... so went looking for the first Harley I ever owned, 1967 XLCH Ironhead right side shift with Mag, and I found it 42 years after I sold it.. bought it back and am returning it to the vintage Digger style of the day.. It is a tribute throw-back to the good old days, on a budget no less. As some of you know, I never go after anything half assed, so this thing while starting off pretty rough, should be pretty sweet when it's all done.... vintage parts, Henry Abe wheels, Ness tank, SB&F Girder (now) Lucas glass fender, Lowbrow short struts, Hex'd cylinders and split and shaved rocker boxes.... lots of cool stuff..

Stay tuned Fellas, good to be back...!

I'm really excited about this project, it has so much sentimental value.. I originally built it in 1978 using a SB&F rigid digger frame and then a couple of years later decided on a swingarm conversion.. I cut this frame and added a 40 degree neck and 5 inch stretch back in 1980 and then joined the Army (22 years) soon after. I did drive (unfinished) it before joining the Army, and then sold it to my older brother, who subsequently sold it. So here we are... 40+ years later, my younger brother did a bottom end re-build on it several ears ago, and it was not driven much since that time. I was living and working in Germany when I got the call that it was for sale.. I did not hesitate, and now title in hand, it is mine again.. I am trying to keep it true to nostalgia with some performance and safety upgrades.. PM controls, hydraulic clutch, good tires, etc, but it is a really good little scooter that I am thoroughly enjoying putting back on the road... Cylinders and heads ire in for re-work, and my brother (machinists) will do the hydraulic clutch rework. I'm thinking "Candy Apple Brandywine" over gold matt base with gold leaf scrollwork.. Thoughts..?

P.S. any of you cool cats know where I can find an original right side Arlen Ness shifter peg combo...

Thanks for looking Gents..
