It all started with a Shovelhead engine that we had for sale at the shop. A guy called us and asked if we wanted to do some trading, and said we could stop by and check out what he had. So the next day we set off. When Boomer and I got to the spot, we found the Pony Cycle. The Pony Cycle was manufactured right here in Clarkston Michigan and this man's father was the owner and designer of it. It was cool to see all the history in this guys garage, and I could see he loved motorcycle of shapes and sizes. He had owed pan's and shovel's over the years and wanted another. So after we did a little trading for a 1968 XLCH he had a good motor to start with. Here's a few pictures.

We've had this bone stock 1972 FLH shovelhead, that we have been trying to sell with no luck. So one night I decided to make something out of it. I striped it all down, and made into what I though was cool, with the parts I had on hand. Not to crazy just striped down, with a lower shocks and a 21' front wheel. It sells right any online, and of course John, the guy who bought the bike, he wanted it more stock. So one more late night and this bike was ready to ship out in the morning. The weather was prefect to load a bike, and by prefect I mean 18 degs and it was snowing. But all in all the shovel went to a super cool guy and I hope its a great bike for him. Here's some before and after pictures, and a picture of us loading it up today.
