    Ok, got the tank. I’m not 100% on the mount location. I might move it up some. I haven’t done anything permanent as far as the bottom mount goes. Does it look too close to the seat to you guys?

    I've been looking at Google, but I'd like to hear about fitment, mods that had to be made for fitment, etc
  3. Post pics of your Shovelhead tank. Looking to get a smaller tank.

    What's up, guys.

    I have a 1979 wide glide and I don't like the tank that's on there. It makes the front look big and the back look super skinny, so I am looking to get a smaller, thinner tank. I...

    They sure are! There’s an oil lamp, I just hope it works, haha.

    Runs now :) I got rid of the coil on the right, put in dual fire mode and just used the coil on the left. Works now.


    Out of curiosity, how can you tell if the oil is circulating? I popped the...

    Update. That coil on the right in the pictures is completely dead. Neither coil wire on it is firing. There’s a coil wife going to the front cylinder and the rear. Neither one is getting fire.

    Hmm, I didn’t think about the battery. Could a weak battery cause a weak spark in only one coil?

    I talked to the PO last night and I believe he said he has had it on there for 5 years. He also...

    I’m not sure if the brand, but it’s a single fire ignition.
    I’ll have to get the pics tomorrow when I take the ignition cover off.

    They both share a cylinder. Which makes me think it would still run on both cylinders, but maybe I’m wrong?

    I just found out that one of the coils has no fire on both coil wires, but the other coil has fire on both coil wires.

  16. Ugh. My new Shovelhead not firing on rear cylinder?

    I just picked this 79 Shovelhead up 2 days ago. Owner said carb needed to be cleaned (mikuni). Got it home and started it with starter fluid (bad mistake). The next day I actually cleaned the carbs...

    Yep. Electric and kick start. Although you only have about 2-3 tries on a fresh standard battery to start it because of the high compression, haha. I don’t even try anymore. I just kick start it and...

    Thanks, man. We all talked for about an hour. I really enjoyed hearing the stories and memories. It would just feel wrong chopping this particular bike up. He somehow knew that I had plans of...

    Thanks, guys! I’m extremely excited about it!

    I had all these plans to chop it up, hartail, etc....but when I saw it, I started thinking I might just leave it like it is.

    It does. I just spoke with him on the phone. Also has less than 30,000 miles. Crabs do need to be cleaned, but that's not an issue.

    Here’s a picture of it. I’m going to call the guy in a bit to get the details, but it does run. Does $3400 sound like a fair deal?

    I looked out of state and found a 79 Shovel 2 hours away for $3400. 93ci (if that means anything). Seems to be in decent shape for what I’m looking to do. I’ve built bobbers before, but with Japanese...
