    Default Usmc50lx's Shovelhead... my '76

    So haven't posted here in a looooong time. Figured I'd throw up some pics of what I've been up to on the old shovelhead. Bought her as a stocker with a few little things changed from my uncle for a song and a dance after my sporty was totaled...added solo seat and a 21" wheel, then slowly started to strip her as I wasn't ready for a bagger just yet. Added airride with onboard compressor and some other things including swapping to a CV and just making it a good daily. Eventually bought new 3.5 gal tanks and a sporty rear fender and planned to ride them bare for awhile til I got the stock tins painted. Well that turned into doing patina paint on the new tins and changing the exhaust to drag pipes. She has evolved into my vision for a semi-cool swingarm chopper and greatest thing is I can bolt all my stock stuff back on no problem as I have kept everything! Click image for larger version.

    Tattooo don't worry man, that white was an eighties repaint. I'm actually going the factory vivid blue and strobe AMF Decals which this bike actually was. Bike was bought new by my uncles friend so I have pics from then until now. Still has the dealer medallion oil fill cap and plate frame on it. It was hit sometime in the 80s reason why it has the early fender and electra glide emblems and got its repaint.

    DragStews its on air ride, I love it low but also love to ride twisties, so going down the road it sits like it has 13" shocks on it. I just fabbed up covers for the bags to look like original dome top covered shocks.

    Looks good!

    What air ride setup do you use? I don't care about low but with stock shocks I keep having to untangle my 'roids from the chain.

    Its one from Justin at Dirty Air, I bought his DIY kit, I honestly couldn't piece it together cheaper and had it in a day. he uses the Monroe Air-Max corvette air-shocks, Viar 95c compressor, and 1/8 line with fittings and dump valve. I welded up the eyelets and made the covers work, changed out some switches and added a remote setup. With all that I'm into it for about $350
