    Rezi, Nice Shovel, But It really belongs in the "Let's see those Shovels" thread.
    I'm pretty sure this thread is for bikes that have been rebuilt (modified) You know...."Before & After"

    the only part I can think of that could have come of of Your Pan is maybe the drive chain? HAHA

    A killer shovel though, Awesome chromed frame & those wheels are tits.
    If It were mine tho....I would swap that carb for a chrome SU!

    Thanks for the kind words. I really liked this bike, had it for about 4 years as I remember it. It started life as a OEM 61" EL with small port heads. Ended up as an 88" motor, large port FL heads, long body SU carb. I don't remember what I put in for a cam but it ran sweet and made a lot more power than the bike needed - was a handful to ride. Suicide clutch, jockey shift, no front brake, AEE springer. Went well in a straight line, got exciting real fast in the curves and city traffic, but I was young (21) and didn't much care, it was a head-turner (especially with my OL on the back.)

    Ended up trading it for a 1963 Panhead. I was in the Navy in San Diego and my bike was my transportation. I lived in Lemon Grove and worked at the submarine base at the end of Point Loma so it was a fairly long commute every day. The 63 had rear suspension, foot shift, hand clutch, front brake (such as it was) and was a whole lot better as a daily rider. I've never regretted the trade, the Panhead met my needs at the time. But I would love to have that 38 in my garage today...
