 See the general page, Fast has a good write-up on it and I think it's a stickey at the top of the page.  I had to start a photobucket account (free) to get mine to post.

Go to your photo editor and do a save as, first do a right click on your pic and check properties it has to be 350kb or smaller. If pic is to large do an edit and crop all that doesn't need to be there then do your save as.

Wow. Lot's of nice bikes in this thread. I've thought a lot lately about picking up an Shovel and playing around with it. Here's a pic of one of my bro's shovel. It's not mine, but I don't think he would mind me posting it up.

This is my 78 FXE Superglide, i picked it up last year and wanted to build a prostreet style bike, so i built a jackshaft swingarm to get the chain from the left to the right to get around the 300mm rear tire, some like it some dont but its still a Shovel.  Sulley

This is my photobucket link for the whole build.

I have a special warm spot in my heart for the FXS in the silver color scheme.  Not that I ever owned one, I didn't but that low rider was a pretty cool bike.

I can see the mods done to this one.  My 78 1/2 had those pipes on it too, sounded very nice.  This one is good enough to completly restore to stock with just a couple changes.  Very nice find.  When I bought my original 79 FXEF-80 they had a FXS-1200 sitting there in silver and I was trying to decide which way and jumped the FXEF. I have questioned that decision since; I am envious of your bike.  Own well, BOB

Heres my new ride. An early 79 FXEF Superglide Fatbob. Needs a few cosmetics and I lost a couple parts already after 100 miles. Solenoid cover and the nut on back of the seat. The nut was easy (lock-tite) but I need a solenoid cover to replace it. Lookin at some apes and longer cables too.

Kind of a mongrel, but it's my first Hog - only two months old. Got it from a kind of Jessie James in the RI area.
Rebuilt FX 74 cu (and tranny) - bored to 80 cu, WG front end, softail fender, fatbob tanks, S&S super B carb.

Generally, a Sportster on steroids! Love the kickstart! (and electric). I think all bikes should have it.

Late 84 FXEF Shovelhead well preserved. Original paint with 19K original miles. When I bought it it had ape's n fishtails. I thought I would add my own touch with the T-Header n drag bars.

Short vid of the maiden voyage. Decided not to paint her once I got the tank back from the platers so I am going to leave it. With the head work, cam, and custom CV40 carb it runs excellent!

Here's a couple pics Of a 1982 FLH I just bought today. I was able to get the original air cleaner, muffs, flex seat and derby cover with the bike. The guy even had the original 2 stripe Goodyear tires that came with the bike and there still a lot of tread left. This bike has the oil return hoses on the tappet blocks. 14K original miles.

I love this thread!  What a killer score RD!!  What are your plans? Are you going to keep it like it is or install the stock pieces you got from the owner?  How cool that you've got the original double-strip Goodyears.  I'd put those on there if this was going to be a parage bike or show bike.  But if you're planning on riding it at speed, I don't think I'd put 30 year old rubber under it.

Can't tell if you got a pin through the front clip of the saddlebags.  If not...Living on the Edge.

 I never had a green bike before but this one was just to nice to walk away from. I'm hoping this one doesn't harbor the curse. I to, like the color and the paint is in like new condition. It needed a battery and I was able to find a glass mat AGM for it to eliminate the possibility of any acid damage. The dealer wanted 140.00 for an acid battery and I was able to pick up the AGM for 89.00 In case anyone is looking for an AGM for a FLH here is the info on it. It's made by Adventure Power from Universal Power Group and the web site is at WWW.UPGI.COM the model number is UBVT-7 Nothin sucks more than to buy a nice set of pipes and have em destroyed by acid. I'm look'n into installing a pogo. Has anybody done this to one of theses later bikes using the smaller 45 pogo? Looks like the center post is open at the bottom with no way to bolt the pogo up. I think'n you have to weld a plate on the bottom and drill a hole for the pogo to mount. Once the post is in there how does it fit up? Loose, tight er just right?

I put a pogo on my '82 by making a 16 gauge steel bracket and bolting it to the frame cross member just because I have no welding skills.  You need the the 45 pogo like you said.  Also turn down the 45 bushing until it fits the top of the post tube.  The post is too loose and the seat was slightly flopping left to right prior to that.

BTW great looking scoot, saved the pics to my hard drive.  I'd love to get my hands on one of those #1 points covers but not for the ransom they go for on e-bay.

How's it run with that pipe?

To soon to tell... Only about 300 miles on her. After chasing down and killing a couple gremlins, I started playing with the setup a couple days ago. I went from 12 to 20 discs in the Supertrapp, but fried the electronic ignition on the test run. Replaced that and went for a test ride yesterday but ended up chasing the curve due to pinging.

Re-gapped the plugs and welded up the cracked chain guard last night, powder coated this morning and wanted to test & tune this afternoon... Looked at the forecast; 10" of snow this weekend; ended up tuning up the snowblower instead.

Heh, glad to see you at least left the frame alone.  :hyst:

Nice looking bike, Arby.  I really like the exhaust, the front end, the back end, the engine and pretty much the whole bike...except for the tank.  Needs a 4 gal Mustang tank on it.

Nice to see someone can build a custom without an 18" wide back tire.  I'd ride that in a heartbeat.

Yeah, yeah, I'd be laid up with my back for a week afterwards, but from the looks of the bike, it'd be worth it.

yeah, yeah.  My back won't let me ride a rigid frame any more either, but I still think the "Billy Bike" or anything resembling it as the way a motorcycle should look. 
It's the way my Ironhead was set up, and it's the way my Triumph before that was set up.
Now I ride a full boat FLT, or one that's been stripped to FLHS trim, or, occasionally, my wife's FXEF. 
Just 'cuz my body got old, doesn't mean I don't remember my youth fondly.

Here's my 82 FXRS. Factory original paint mostly original rest. Rubber mounted 5 speed. I bought this bike in 1990 and I've been riding it and wrenching it for 25 years. It is the miracle shovel in that it does not leak anything from anywhere except occasionally wet sumps out the breather. [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Haven't looked at this thread in a while.  Great bikes one and all!  Strokerswild, sweet shovel/pan.  I like the tin derby cover air cleaner.  Did you make that yourself?  And all those beautiful FXRs!  So nice.  That SuperGlide Racepres posted has always been one of my favorites.  Probably because 1977 was about the time I started getting into Harleys.  I was 15 years old and very impressionable.

Jerite, that one is nice! When those wheels first came out, I did not like them, thought spokes were the only real wheels.
Now, I would love to set up my RoadKing with a set.
Nicely done.

Found 2 pics of my 69 FLH and then a few of my 78.5 FXE, both in various stages of modification. The formative years when kids make stupid mistakes. Oh well, can't go back but I miss them.

Thanks Hogman, was a pretty even trade. ...1974 bmw for a 1974 FLH. Had two sportsters, this is my first big twin. About 25 years ago went on a ride with my buddies who all had shovels. That was the first time I had seen a post seat.  From that moment on, knew I'd have one someday.

the blue powder coating is what I chose to do for looks and to save money instead of re-chroming the wasted chrome bits.

My local guy had the chrome one just sitting. For $25 I tossed it on.
Yes front end chrome.  Rear end black

 I always wanted to put a pogo seat on my 76 but was afraid I didn't have enough inseam for it.

OK I think I have removed all the photo links that were no longer functional which then made a lot of the comments irrelevant so they had to go too.  It was actually fun to go back to 2008 and review all the pics again.  Sadly some of the names are no longer with us and unfortunately 28 pages of pics is now down to 8 or so. If your pics are gone please repost if possible.

 My own 76 FLH pics were axed due to me parting ways with photobucket. So here are the ones I have stored on Imgur.

Late 84 FXEF Shovelhead well preserved. Original paint with 19K original miles. When I bought it it had ape's n fishtails. I thought I would add my own touch with the T-Header n drag bars.


What a Great Bike Reddog!  Kinda like a brother to my '84 Super Glide.  Could you repost the missing pics of the bike, I'd love to see them!

You can try and make something idiot-proof, but those idiots are so darn clever
