    Default The Rebirth... '74 Ironhead Chopper Build

    I've had this bike for close to 10 years, in several different variations. Learned a lot about style and what not to do, especially mechanically. Definitely did some hack work over the years that I was never too proud of. When the transmission exploded late last summer, breaking gears and cracking the case I knew it was time to take shit seriously, take my time and try to do shit right.

    Here she is just before the end...


    The aftermath...

    Oops... Who knew an Avon was so much taller than a beat up Shinko? Not me, luckily I had enough room to move the bungs up an inch & didn't have to scrap the sissy bar.


    Thats better...


    Made some high mids...

    I'm digging this build...

    Nice work on the steel lower legs being shaved... Looks like they could have been the 71-72 legs with the seals...
    And keeping a front brake in play from the early days of the K's & XL's is also a nice touch too...

    Do have a wonder about how the case repair was done....??
    And what door you will be using...??
    Will you be six bolting the door to the case..??
    Stuff like that is a bit of interest to me..

    Hey Drags thanks...

    Pretty sure front end is all K model/early sportster, no seals & shitty dampner. Kinda wish i didn't shave it to be honest!
    Scored a good deal on a nice unfucked case, so running that. Fate of the broken case is TBD.
