Description

I got over 20k into it
For sale is a 1949 EL panhead....kick only no battery
I just finished building this bike. I cannot seem to get it to run smoothly. Starts right up no problem and idles smooth. The motor is awesome but I either have an intake leak or the new magneto is off a tooth. But the motor itself is sound. I can ride it fine but top speed it kinda chokes. I got so many bikes I haven't had the time to fine tune this one. Motor only has 3k on it but the build is all brand new with only 10 miles on it.
(some of the pictures are of when I had a S&S carb on it.
I started with the frame and motor and tranny and rear wheel and brake. .... I bought from a dealership in Sturgis ND.
Not too many of these EL models around that I have seen anyway which are basically a knuckle/pan harley...
I build bikes sometimes and do everything myself except engines and trannys. My last one was the center part of mar/apr raw bike mag the steampunk chopper.
Ok it has a brand new :
JUST BOUGHT a brand new Morris Magneto and copper plugs and metal core wires .........brand new rebuild Linkert M-74 carb .....brand new Springer frontend forks..... Fender...... Led taillight.....wiring....nuts and bolts.....floorboards.....front OEM NOS vintage Harley knucklehead brake drum and new shoes......front brake cable......front brake lever....front brake drum parts of all sorts.....internal throttle (Nash cycles).....brass risers....front and rear matching diamond tread tires and tubes (18" Coker front and 16" Allstate rear).....five finger clutch hub and brand new Barnett 5 disc clutch pack .....primary belt....gas and oil caps....brass spike nuts.....brake switch.....voltage regulator and battery eliminator.....and more I'm forgetting
Things used to start with:
Frame....rear 16" wheel....Oem 18" front star hub wheel... motor (has 3000 miles on it I was told).....tranny (don't know much about it leaks a tad)........rear brake drum....open primary components.......generator (recently had it refurbished)... Things I made from scratch fabrication: sissy bar.....handlebars that I made myself with my power mandrel tube bender.....License plate holder .... kickstand......brass headlight (made from a vintage spotlight pure brass) and brackets.....vintage swap meet tanks made with a built in coffee holder on left side and oil tank built into right side like a Indian motorcycle....copper oil lines......tooled leather seat (I made from a tractor seat).....forward controls (I made them entirely out of new steel and S wrenches that have needle bearings in them and are as smooth as glass like a brand new harley)....suicide shift lever (made from pure copper)......titanium wrapped exaust system and pipes.....HAND PAINTED DECALS ( I hand painted all of the decals over a faux paint job)....... freehand airbrushed pinup girl I airbrushed on there for the wolf to stare at.........and a lot more I hope that if someone buys it they enjoy the sculpture of it all. this baby sounds incredible with the way I made the pipes
