Another Harley-Davidson Shovelhead whose destiny was to be reborn as a little Hot Rodder Chopper, but this one keeping its original frame turned into a rigid with 30-degree rake and no stretch (of course cleaned of all its unuseful brackets, while others were added), 74″ engine & 4-speed transmission. It helps to be able to keep title and ride the streets legally… I am not too crazy about the domed Sportster gas tank but the bike features some interesting touches.
First a 2-piece aluminum rear fender held in place by central rivets, a customized S&S E air cleaner, a Panhead style oil filter with cast housing, a jockey shift with 69 Camaro Hurst lever, I-beam styled front fork legs, Wingnut rear axle, Mooneyes dragster gas pedals used as floorboards with custom fabricated mounts, Mooneyes hot rod fluid lines used throughout, cloth wiring, etc. For the rest it’s the traditional Chop menu with mini ape hangers, tuck and rolled seat, a 21″ front wheel and 16″ rear wrapped in Avon Speedmaster. Built by a shop in Georgoa called Freddie Arnold Designs. Website unknown. (pictures H. Roesler)
