That's a good article.

I have had -77 Shovelhead and now -66 Shovelhead. There is just something about those generator models. Maybe it's that clean flat surface in right side of the engine compared to sticking cone. Or it's just nostalgia.

I am always disapointed when I see the S&S or STD panhead heads with the shovel intake and exhaust ports. Its just a taste thing. They are better in every way from the original. But they aint original. Its a look alike. I feel the same way about softail frames. The only softail bike I every really stopped to look at was Lou Falcigno's (sp?) work. When I look at a pan from the left side, I know right away wether or not Im going to look at the right side. The original pan intake manifold, while less efficient, is to me a compliment to the usually mundane left side of bikes. Especially if you run the 2 piece brass intake clamps on the o-ring style heads Im mean theres just more going on on the right side. Bolt flanges belong on shovels.

Yeah, I know, my left side case isnt original! I wish it was...

I feel the same way when I see the rocker covers on the new S&S shovels.The left side just ain't the same without those nuts.

Is there any chance there are more pictures of this motor or bike? I saw this picture some time ago and saved it, its had an influence on the direction id like to go with my bike since getting back into riding.

Looks like a 58-64 frame, which is what I used with my knuckle when I built it in about 1980. Not as practical for electric start, but sure looks good.

Edit: I just realized the links in the quoted post had more pics, I thought they were the other links Id already seen that didnt have bike pics.

Malamute,

Here you go. . . pics of the bike over the last twenty years.

Yes, it's an early duo-glide frame. Originally had a '52 pan motor in it.

A bunch of earlier pics from when I first built it and rode around NYC in my 20s and 30s can be found on www.jasonmcelroy.com and www.greasygringo.com.

Glad you like it. I do too. We have a long and storied history together and I'm alive to tell the tale.

Jason

Thank you, very cool!

I like how you blended all the parts you liked into one bike. It brings back memories of my knuckle, and encourages me to keep going forward on my shovel in the direction I want.

The shovel has electric start, which is a requirement now with a damaged body. Its pricey to add to a pan or knuckle. Im slowly swapping parts to older style things, its also getting a sidecar soon.

A few old pictures of the knuckle

Shot it with my 4" S&W 44 mag pistol. I was still in my sleeping bag next to the bike when I woke up and saw it, so rolled over and rested my arms on the pillow. It was south of Flagstaff a bit.

Was living part time in a tipi at that time.

Another pic.

Jason that motor looked so tough with the snap mag on there! Any reason why you went back to points.

Side note: jealous of that space you had in NYC and I always forget how badass Jeffrey's Evo cop is.

Malamute! Great pics.

Vin, the mag made starting what was previously a perfectly tuned bike an exercise in fuckery. Ran it for about a year. Sold it for what I paid for it. Motor is running 9:1 with single plugs and is geared tall. Really works far better with an ignition curve rather than fixed. Pinging is always just around the corner.

I started that shop in Brooklyn with my friend Kevin (Ichabod here) in 1998. We had countless great times there. I left when I bought a house in Philly in 2006. John, Neil, Bill, and Jeffro transformed it and kept it going when last I checked. No idea what goes on there now.

Awesome, I didn’t realize it was that shop! Jeff moved to upstate NY with his wife and makes some pretty mean maple syrup now, pretty sure he keeps at least one bike in the middle of the living room.

I would have loved to be around Bk back then, I didn’t move until 2012 when I graduated college and luckily found a great space in ‘14 that I’m still in. Not sure what I’d do if they sold the building, luckily the owner is a salty Italian with a distaste for developers.

He ain't Ichabod here, he's buckman50.

You're getting senile, old timer.
