FOR SALE: '75 Shovel Chop.

Up for sale is my much loved '75 shovel. The bike originally was built by Andy at Pangea and was a show bike called the Zion Express. After the bike did the show circuit he changed it up into the chopper you see here. I bought it from him a couple of years ago and we made and fitted the mid controls and the modified drag pipes. It was a dark red colour with black flames back then. I got Sonny Boy to paint it all black and put an old mermaid decal on the tank that had a coat of clear applied over the top. 1 year later I got Sonny to remove the decal and paint the winged Harley logo that you see here, he did all of that by hand, amazing! I found the dual seat stored in the back of the bar enterprises warehouse. Its a brand new 70's survivor. I had to modify the sissy bar to get it all to fit right then re-chromed it. Rear pegs are fitted and it's a good two up bike. S&S Super E carb and vintage air cleaner. Pullback handlebars from Pangea. Front end is a shaved 4" over 39mm with single Harley disc brake. Sportster headlight and visor. 19" mag wheel on the front and a 16" on the back. Both shod with excellent Continental tires. Rear brake is from a GSXR. Both brakes are fantastic. I have owned too many bikes with either a front spool hub or bad drum brake and with this bike it's an amazing feeling being able to stop on a dime. It has a primary belt drive with standard Harley clutch mated to a 4 speed gearbox, kick only. It starts first kick every time. It's been put together really well and runs very strong. It needs nothing, just get on and go. I've ridden it everywhere with never any troubles. Fast, comfortable and a real joy to own. Title is a clear California '75 Harley. Looking to get $10k.
