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.

This is what i started with.



And this is it today.

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
