Default Panel Beaterís Pan

Hey guys,
First attempt at a build thread...so here goes....
This will be a catch up as lots has been done.
Bought this bike almost 2 years ago(where the hell does time go?)
I had it for all of a week and ripped it apart.
Gotta be honest, I knew I would as I looked at it to buy.
Just really wanted a Panhead.
So, the idea is to incorporate my trade into the build and try something different (hopefully), and buy as little aftermarket stuff as possible.
I’ll try to add detail as I post pics.
Here’s the start....

The first thing to go was the 39mm Sporster front end and Sportster tank, and all related tin.
Picked up an 87 Heritage front end and cut up a brand new set of ď48Ē handle bars stuck into an earlier riser....
Then it was loaded up and off to my shop.

Great start. Are you going to go for an original look? I always loved a sporty tank on a panhead. It seems to fit.

Going for a ďvintageĒ look, kinda....
Bought a set of Lowbrow WR tanks, but will be running stock 3 1/2 gallon tanks.
Have a few what at least I think are cool twists...

Great-looking bike to start with. I am sure it will come out real well ... but ...

My big fire-breathing question right now is: ARE YOU GONNA KEEP THE SWINGARM?

I hope so. But then I acknowledge that I have the right to stick my opinion where the sun don't shine, it being Your Bike and all.

Thanks for showing us what you're getting up to.

So, when I got it to the shop and on the lift I started to get a better idea of where I needed to go aesthetically.
First, I guess I need to give some details of what I purchased....
ďSuperPanĒ started out life as a 79 FXE. It now runs an S&S bottom end Pan with genie 55í heads etc. The trans is a late model ratchet 4 speed.
Thatís all I really kept of the initial bike.
First I needed a wide glide front wheel for the ďnewĒ Heritage front end, so I knocked apart this wheel I found on Kijiji...been in a guys basement since the day he pulled it off his new bike in the 80ís....

So... first thing to do is get rid of the chrome.
The son and I blew apart the 21Ē wheel he sanded it, I primed and painted it.
Found a 16Ē mid star at a swap meet....after cleaning up a mess of powder coating(could not mount the drum correctly) and a truing, I think itís a go....

In keeping with the plan for a vintage look I sussed out a shovel rear swing arm,
and related paraphernalia. So Ratso, to answer your question...yes, retaining the arm. I just think that a round tube frame needs a round tube rear fork. I also prefer the ďcleanĒ look on the right with a drum equipped wheel.

Slick, understated and highly usable. Real nice.

Whew I'm glad the swingarm issue has been resolved. Maybe I can get to sleep now.

Hey Ratso...thanks man.
I've been building hot rods for a while now, and one of my hard and fast rules is that function and safety is paramount.
I guess with bikes it even makes more sense.
I like it when the finished product looks like it was always that way....

Ok....slid some rubber on the wheels, now time to ponder fenders...
Start with a 36 Ford spare cover, I know, done before....but wait.
Early 30ís Dodge spare cover for the front.
Do I mount it to the swing arm or....

I'm in the mount it on the swing arm camp. It's going to be a killer look

Looks good. I had trouble with 12 inch shocks and a round swingarm.When it was on 12 inch shocks it looked good but bottomed out. I raised the fender but couldn't get high enough. I had to put struts on, I'm gonna try 13 inch shocks but it's probably gonna look goofy!

Hey Clay,
Iím runniní 13 1/2Ē stock shocks. I figure my bike will have over 30 degree lean angle...lol.
My main concern was my Tech Cycle starter setup(bad knees).
You could tell the chain was going to eat the mounting plate up if lowered any real amount...

Holy shit a front fender. I think I'm in love. Can I carry your books?

You only have to run through one big puddle of wet manure to start thinking front fenders are pretty. Or ride 150 miles in a monsoon.

That car is mightyfine, too.

Oh, yeah. To say something substantive: mount that rear on the swingarm, please.
