65 panhead, 1955 panhead, 36 knucklehead and maternity photos

We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it,  my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend.  This bike is massive,  I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it,  I am too short!  Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.  

1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery,  I think it looks nice with out it.  The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them.  The mufflers are new old stock and sound great.  The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you



I got to take my 36 out for the first time this year. Sophorn put a windshield on it, which ended up being more of a challenge than we anticipated since the summer shields were designed for standard rigid bars and I have Flanders bars on my bike.   

I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week.  This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
The rear header pipe was missing when they brought the bike to us.  My dad had a nice old original superior rear header pipe in his stash of parts.  It fit up really nicely and matches the rest of the bike well


Britt and I did our maternity photos with the bike. It was fun.  Here is a link to the rest of the photos http://jaceejphotography.blogspot.com/2014/04/brittney-matt-maternity.html?m=1

Born Free (21/20) ... I guess I can't stop yet?





Some pretty neat stuff going on here with this bike, not the trash cans in the last two pictures, but still... 



British 21 WM1 40 Hole Rims & Low Racer Bars






Internal throttle 1" low racer bars. These are nice clean bars with a great old bend. I have 2 21" WM1 40 hole hoops. One is a Dunlop the other is a Jones. Email for the details@ mikedavis70@hotmail.com

 

Full Tilt Boogie 2014 - Part 7

Sportsters were very well represented at Full Tilt 4.

We'll start with the ironheads.  I believe this one won an award:

Jarad's bike looked really good and I even managed to snag a couple of photos of him kickstarting it.  The crowd is mesmerized.

Black & White:

This bike has so many things going for it.

Swingarm chop:

This bike was filthy, greasy, appears to have possibly once caught on fire, and is all-around awesome.  Apparently, I'm not the only LadyHump fan in Minnesota.

The crazy fishtail exhaust might distract you from another cool detail on this bike which is what I'll call fork carving, as opposed to fork shaving ("Hold Tite").

Glad Jordan and his bike made it in safely.  It sounded like he had a pretty rough ride in the rain.

Evo Sportsters are next.

2014 Award Winners

Fulton Paint Works tank winner!
 
 The trophy tree.
Gasket Goon Josh and his amazing sidecar shovel rode away with the HD award.
 
Al Kelly took home the well-deserved antique award with his '49 Pan.
Amy's Triumph took the top British honors of the weekend.
Kat approves!
Bill's old CB750, "Conkey," woke up just in time this year to win the Jap bike award.
Uncle Twisty's Ironhead chop  was easily the Rat bike of choice this year.
This dual-carb Ironhead beat out some tough competition for the Sportster award.
Mr. Nashville, TN rode the furthest to Strange Days 4, and hopefully got home safe with the help of his well-earned Long Haul self defense club.
Congrats to all of this year's award winners; all well-deserved.  The decisions were beyond tough, but it's all about the fun; you ride in, and you're in the show.  Consider everyone an invited builder!
