A Gorgeous Custom Panhead Final Assembly. Exciting.

If you love the old days styling, I bet you dream of building/riding a custom powered by the extremely beautiful Panhead engine. The engine replaced the Knucklehead engine in 1948 and was manufactured until 1965 when it was replaced by the Shovelhead. The fact that the “Captain America” chopper used by Peter Fonda in the 1969 movie Easy Rider had a Panhead engine – as did the “Billy Bike” ridden by Dennis Hopper’s character – has added a lot aura to this motor. Thunder bike Customs Germany, an official Harley-Davidson dealer with a superb Custom Motorcycles Department just completed this custom Pan that I will feature in exclusivity as soon as the bike goes in photo shoot. As a teaser, a short film showing you the always very exciting final assembly.

    Please enable the controls for your embedded YouTube videos. I prefer to viewing them on your site, but they’re too loud and I cant adjust the volume because the controls are missing.
