New Iron Heart Harley
« on: May 03, 2022, 06:26:23 pm »
Well Guys,

This is a bit of me, and something @Alex and I have been working very closely on: The brand new IHUK Shovel Chop! She's being built for us by Zac David in the UK. Here is how she started out.

"IMG_0334.jpg""IMG_0336.jpg""IMG_0341.jpg""IMG_0337.jpg"

She's a swing arm chop, we love that stye - as does Haraki san - 1974 1200cc. We can't wait to update you with more progress pics, but she's now been sprayed black. Zac is putting the finishing touches to her, then she'll be with us in Gosport, where we'll take the tank and fender off, then send them to Tetsu in Japan for paint!

Can't wait to hear your thoughts, and for you all to see her! More photos dropping imminently.

Olly

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Oof… this will be blinding. With a starting point that lovely it can only end up a stunner.

I love it! Will you keep the inner primary that way or remove it completely? Please keep us posted, regularly!

No, primary cover staying on... we're not going THAT gnarly! We love our jeans too much  :D

Show bike or riding bike?   Is it a stroker or any Engine mods?  Peanut tank sucks for trips…open primary (chain) would be cool as hell, or you could do a belt.  Love the sound and look of open primary’s.  Love the springer front end and the z-bars are cool. 

Great potential…

Improving on that thing is a challenge--but one I know y'all will crush. Beautiful bike. Looks fast and comfy with the rear wheel placement and swingarm.
Think it, be it.

Both. Standard 1200 motor - perfect and slow as there's no front brake! Wassell tank staying for sure. Open primaries are awesome, but we're staying with the clean lines of the factory design. Looking forward to updating more.

Just reg lever man. Although a foot clutch and jockey shift was considered!

That's a combo I've always wanted to try.  Those old guys were nuts.  Drum brakes for the rear, no front, open primaries, Suicide Clutch and Jockey Shift, raked out bikes and crazy long springers.  My buddy used to ride one and he said that he ran into stuff all of the time...Half of the time it was so he could stop.  :D

oh and they bored out the heads to the point where he has chunks of one on his shelf as a conversation piece.  Blew up while he was riding it...
