This was a personal project that started out as an ugly duckling. I bought an old worn out 1980 Shovelhead and within days it was torn down. The frame was stretched four inches and a custom narrowed hardtail was installed. We built a custom oil tank that had hidden oil lines, after that came the custom built sissy bar, gas tank and mid controls. We then re-worked the motor by installing a new top end, splitting the rockers and drilling the rocker shafts to change up the oil flow to the primary side. The paint was sent off to our favorite place, Chemical Candy Customs in Houston, Texas. The Shovel was displayed at the One Moto Show in Portland, Oregon and has raced around many old Idaho backroads - we wanted to build a show bike that was meant to be ridden.
