For 2020, we are invited builders to one of the best custom motorcycle shows in the world, Born Free. We'll be starting from scratch on this build. There will be a lot of stainless steel fabrication all over the bike. Specifically, will be customizing the entire straight-leg Panhead frame, front end, wheels, Sportster tank, solo seat and we want to build a very unique set of exhaust and a sissy bar from stainless.
We'll be rebuilding the engine, the transmission and a vintage two-throat S&S carburetor and giving the bike a tough, extended, shiny chrome and show paint chopper to be period correct for the era the bike is from. Follow along with photos and updates:
Our donor bike is a complete, custom 1966 H-D FLH Shovelhead.

The customized neck we opened up and have begun texturing to give it a cast look.
