    Hey all, I'm new here, currently building my 79 FXEF-80. I've been given a 45 springer by my dad, it was being used on a Triumph he picked up recently. He's not keen to use it on his build but I would like to run it on mine. I've heard people say that if you are running the swingarm you would...

    I've been asking around on chopcult for the last few months and the guys over there helped me out to get where I'm at but they said I might have better luck asking the guys over here on jockey journal. So my mag is on a 72 shovelhead, kick only. I bought the joe hunt mag used last winter...

    Someone told me this would be the best place to track down where the tins on my shovelhead came from. All i know is they have A & A Customs on them and are from Tennessee. Buddy of mine bought them back from Japan a few years ago on ebay and after building this shovelhead I haven't taken them...

    So I pulled my plugs on my 1980 fxwg shovelhead the other day because it breaking up a little when you'd whack the throttle and farting through the carb when you'd kickstart. I found a nicely tanned plug in the front cylinder, but a VERY black plug in the rear? Soooo....how does that work? I'm...

    I had nearly 0 compression in my front cylinder suddenly and suspected the intake valve because of some history I won't get into here. Removed the head did a leak test and sure enough both valves had a minor leak. Got the valveseats recut, a fresh valve guide, lapped the valves and put it all...

    I'm starting to look around for a running pan motor. OEM cases and clean numbers are a must, but doesn't have to be pristine because I unfortunately can't afford a $7000 motor at the moment. I also could be interested in a Generator Shovel motor of the same condition. I'm in Austin, TX and can...

    Alright everyone, total newbie here when it comes to older HD's although I've wrenched on other more modern Jap bikes so I'm somewhat mechanically savy. Anyway, I recently picked up a '80 FXWG. Engine and tranny seem stock from the research I've done. Ever since I bought it I've had to use...

    Goes anyone know off the top of their heads what style hub the '69-'72 FLH shovelheads were using in the front? These are the rare ones that ran the Pan style Drum brake, but on the right side instead of the left. Did they just flop the old style star hub around or did they use a mid-star?

    I need a ratchet top for my shovelhead. One I found locally ended up being junk besides cases, and my cowpie mainshaft broke off with the clutch hub nut. Unfortunatley I don't have the skillset to repair these myself and have it be worth it, so I'm looking to buy one in working order. I need it...
