Custom Ironhead Still
« on: September 04, 2013, 08:00:44 PM »
I still have the 80 Ironhead purchased while on active duty. Sure is is not close to stock. In order to save money when the stock electronic ignition went out I got a magneto. After a bit I got a points ignition. Now to fight ethanol I got an electronic ignition. These old Ironheads can be interchangeable. That allows one to use a 1946 springer front end and shovelhead shocks. Since these rides are simple they are easy to work on. Back with points when there was not enough power in the battery to electric start it one could put it in second gear and push start the engine. All the high tech new stuff makes me laugh. This old Ironhead is tough enough to survive.
