This is my 1976 FXE with a lot of FLH parts. Just did the Flat Black paint this spring.

Since the photobucket jerks deleted my pics here's a recent one from imgur to help keep the continuity of the thread.

I entered my bike in the Chicago Norton Owners Vintage Bike Show yesterday and next to me was a very nice '74 FLH with a sidecar still owned by the original owner, a super nice LADY named Carol.  She used to kickstart it! It cost her over $4K back then.

he plans to clean it up a little, go over it well with the least amount of "do this or that because" and just ride it

I'm pulling out a CV to send south for him and the drawing for the o-ringed spacer to cure the trannie leak.

Should have posted with the picture- My 1st Harley, bought new in 1979, Low Rider, 1200 CC, Now 98" S&S sidewinder kit, Crane 308B cam w/ solid lifters, BC Gerolomy ported the heads, dual plugs, Dyna single fire ignition, Rivera pro-clutch, Akront aluminum rims. Rear swingarm shock mounts moved back 3/4". I doubt there is a nut or bolt on this bike that I have not touched!!! Frank

I was just looking at a Shovel for sale on a Japanese web site and had google translate it,  The bike turned into a Excavator Head...too funny.

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!
