Check out this awesome chopper!  This was built by me and featured in The Horse Backstreet Choppers Magazine March 2014.  The drivetrain is a 1972 Shovelhead motor and transmission.  The rocker boxes have custom engraving. It has an S&S E carb with custom Landstrom bird deflector. and a Morris magneto.  The frame has 6" stretch up and 3" out.    Late 60's/ Early 70's style Psychedelic metal flake paint job by Blue Moon Kustoms. Long 12" over stock Twisted Knucklehead HD Springer and sky high sissybar. Classic king queen seat. AEE Satellight Invader wheels. Mousetrap clutch. Open 1. 5" primary belt drive. Amen tank. Finch Carriage Pawn tail lights. brass and bronze touches.  The bike starts right up and rides great through all the gears but after a while in 4th gear it begins to run a little rough.  I've rejetted the carb and replaced the intake manifold seals.  Maybe the timing's a little off. I'm not sure.  Also there is a small dent on the right side of the tank and a scratch from when the bike fell over in the back of a pickup truck after a strap broke. Like most shovelheads. it leaks oil a little. Normal surface rust in the joints of the wheels etc.  The front brake caliper leaks. This isn't a show bike. it's ridden regularly and the only reason I'm selling it is because I have 4 registered and insured bikes (3 harleys) and 3 registered cars and a teenage driver.  My wife is currently unemployed and xmas is coming so my loss is your gain.  If you have any other questions please ask.
