Default The Punisher

So named for the rigid frame and shovelhead engine. I have had this for about 3 months now. Been working on it more than riding it. Had to completely rewire it. New ignition switch, original was toast and wired wrong. Added new tail/brakelight. Had to adjust valves, solid lifters. Fabbed a horn button and a dimmer switch and a kill switch. I'm having fun with it though. Gives me a reason to get off my butt and hangout in the shop. Morris Magneto, open primary with 3" belt, springer forks,

Cool bike, man. Kind of new style with old power train and other things like the tank. The cut out on the neck is pretty wild, too. Looks like fun either as a project or ride as is.

The cutout is called "windowing" the neck.

And to singlebeam.... I think you have flipped us all the bird, or are my eyes lying to me. haha

That is way cooler than what most start out with. But, I want the Chevelle SS for my collection. haha It would look good, sitting next to my 72 C30 rust bucket. Even if it does have good paint.

Yes, I got lucky and found something in fairly good shape and pretty close to what I would have built myself. The SS is a 1972 El Camino. When I got it it was an all original, numbers matching SS 454. I have the build sheet and the Protect-O-Plate. The numbers matching 454 is in a building out back. She has a Ram Jet 502 under the hood now.

Your bike is nice. I like the license plate mount: that sucker isn't going anywhere. What's the brass gizmo on the tank?

Damn,do you drag race it or take it to the salt flats? I had a 73, but it had a stock 350. Hell,l would be happy if l had it back. Had to sell it in my youth, to pay my lawyer. No details on that part.

Love the Pan, ditch the crapola carb. But, as is normal, I like the OEM stuff. S&S is the worst carb I have ever had the miserable time to get to act like a real carb. Even a Linkert runs better. But my opinion is just that. A opinion. Your bike, and you can run what you will. The S&S is a replacement carb for people who want to NOT tune a real one. So, I will go crawl under my rock and await the blistering whipping I deserve. Other than that, love it. So, let the opinions of my thoughts appear below...........


I have thick skin, so let it fly. Your opinion is as important as mine. hehehe

I have never seen one like this, so I really wasn't sure. Evidently the guy I bought it from new nothing about it neither. He would pull it up and start it, left it up to ride it. I figured out how to turn it off just by messing with it. I had the fuel line off and when it's down fuel flows thru it but when you pull it up there's a much larger amount flowing. I probably need to take it apart and get the rebuild kit for it. Couldn't hurt.

It is fine, no rebuild needed, that's the way it works. Rebuild it when you can't shut it off,special tool is required to do it.

Note; that style valve and tanks were used till 1965.
