Born Free 12 Build
1966 Harley-Davidson FLH Generator Shovelhead
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:
