Harley Custom 2007 1584cc
Firstly. i am after a 1340 Shovelhead. if that helps a deal!!
In 2008 i purchased a 2007 Street Bob for the sole purpose of turning it into an old school cruiser styled bike.
The reason for buying a Street Bob was the fact that it had twin rear shocks. so many people use the softail frame in order to give it a hard tail look. i on the other hand. wanted the old Electra Glide look! (not that i'm opposed to the hard tail look!. just think it gets done alot)
The Bob when i started out was tip top! & i rode it about for about a year before it came into my workshop for its make over!
I started with a modern Heritage front end with a Road King Nacelle. which i had powder coated.
The front fender is of an older model Harley. not sure what model. came from eBay & i liked the look!
Handlebars are Paughco. proper old schooooool!!!!
The center tank console i fitted the ignition switch in it. then after cleaning off all the standard wrinkle finish paint. had it chromed .
Harley foot boards with controls were fitted.
The saddle i had recovered in leather by a friend that makes horse saddles for a living. if you look at the rear of the seat it has a red insert to match the paint.
Brand new after market solid look rear shocks (just like the old Electra Glides !)
I managed to source some original panniers from a 59 Electra Glide.
The rear fender is the original Bob fender which i grafted on the bottom section from an old fender i had kicking round the shop.
Rear lights are 59 Cadillac fin lights.
The bars around the panniers i made from polished 316 grade stainless steel .
Exhausts are Vance & Hines duals with fish tail ends.
I fitted the bike with a power commander. so she does move aswell!!
The 'custom' badges on the panniers are from an old 50s ford pick up i had once!
I then sprayed the bike in its colors that you see. the pin striping was done by a top UK pinstriper.
There is lots of other bits & bobs that have been done. but i think the main things have been listed.
It is if you don't already know a 1600 fuel injected engine.
I have just given it a full service & is ready to go!!
I have been to Spain & France on her without any problems (well. not with the bike anyway!haha!!)
Reason for selling is i do have a few bikes & as the wife says "you only have one arse!"
Seriously though. i don't seem to ride her that much!!
Of coarse if you have any further question please ask. or if you want to come look!
I'm open to a deal on a big Shovelhead. but only if it is American & its pre 1960!!!!!!
