@natehate Shovel is looking awesome! Is that an 18 or 19 rear you're running? That deep burgundy paint job looks the shit!

thanks! thats an 18" rear


ps. its maroon :)  burgundy is more purple, maroon is more red/brown

Nice Shovel, you did the work by yourself?

hardtail, trans rebuild, sissy bar and foot peg mounts by jason parker in brampton ontario
paint by my buddy jake with some help by me (i sprayed primer and did all the body work) in my shop. very sketchy set up but came out amazing
the rest me with some help from my dad
more of the finish welding was done by jason as well so it looks good
i currently dont have a tig welder and mig looks like dog fart

@natehate My '75 XLCH is a similar colour. It's bone stock in this photo. I think AMF decided to go a bit crazy when they got their hands on HD. I picked the bike up for a steal just over a year ago with a title and 6000km on the clock.

@natehate Hard tail, 18/21 wheels, hamburger front drum, K model fork lowers, 2 piece bars, split rockers, I want to make a split tank as well....the list seems endless. I'm taking bits on inspiration from Swing Garage and Iron Chain...a Japanese Style Chopper basically. I like the idea of running a Posa fuel injector, Swing seem to have the secret recipe for running one! You should check it out, they look nuts! @modelk53 on instagram.

Agreed, but so are oil tanks, I can't run a stock horseshoe because of the battery. It's kickstart only so I could get away running a lithium one but I would still need to fabricate a custom oil tank, if I split the tanks I could run oil in one gas in the other, which would open up the back end of the frame a bit.
