New Shop Chopper Project: 1975 Shovelhead

Had a line on a cool Shovel project for a good price right before we left for Bonneville, and I worked it out and the guy brought it by the shop the day before we left for the Salt Flats. 1975 cone Shovel motor (dual plug heads), titled, a rigid frame with MSO, a stock frame, and a pallet of parts including some really nice chopper stuff.

Some nice Sportster forks that are turned down, 21" spool wheel, new tires, plenty of parts including an old cast body Hunt magneto that was freshly rebuilt along with the new nosecone for it, an SU carb and manifold, bars, rear disc setup, controls, and a bunch more. Pretty much needs a fender and seat, though we are going to change it up a bit and see what happens.

Stay tuned on the blog for more to come, including a full hot motor build with some S&S parts and lots more..
