Started on my newest build tonight.... an 84 Ironhead. I found out about this bike a few weeks ago at the JEFFERSON swep meet , and took the guys number. I called him that Sunday and a deal was struck I paid way too much.... $2300, but the bike was clean, with 14,000 miles, Clear title, it rode great, and had nice chrome. I brought it home and rode it about 1000 miles in 2 weeks . It was a BLAST..... well it got cold, and I just finished up a load of customers hot rod work, and decided it is time for me to build something for myself again....... so I tore it apart , and ordered a frame, a COLE tank,(don't know if I like it ???) bars, and a few other little pieces, and started putting it back together tonight. Cars have kinda burned me out lately, but playing with bikes is super fun.... I have lots of stupid little ideas for this one...... stay tuned...... LUKESTER

Luke Its looking nice. What are your plans? What kind of frame is that? Post updates. I would slam it. Shorten the forks,shave the legs and run a spool wheel.
Ditto on the frame specs,info,builder,price.

Might be loojin for one like it myself..
Thanks Shoe
looks like a paughco ?
I think the tank will look better when the motor is in . The way it follows the slope of the head and stuff . . .
Looks pretty decent! I'd like to do something similar, but with a wide springer.
What are Ironheads in that condition worth in the US? I was looking at a '74 up here with 35,000 miles on it. They're asking $4995 Cdn. Sounds like I may have to amke a trip south if I want a good deal.
Dude that was a steal @ 2300 dollars. I came across one @ a local swap for 4500!!!! I do like what I'm seeing...
