Thank you for pointing out the wedding ring on the tube bruc. It looks like I'm going back to the lunchbox tank damn it.

Missing the 33.4 front end but the kayaba with pie slice caliper still looks good. More of a "resurrection"

And a pic of my 4 3/4 x 3 5/8 big bore stroker w sputhe 5 in 4


Appears that Shovelhead frame has been to the butcher...

Maybe more than once, and the wire harness is on the wrong side of the seat post!

Thanks for helping me ID the frame everybody. Frame flowchart printed out. I've had the correct frame in my attic this whole time how ironic. It's in rough shape.

That shovel frame has junk welded on it but hasn't been chopped. We all know PO's do dumb stuff like weld 1/8" flat bar on the frame for an exhaust mount rather than just changing the exhaust bracket itself.

The wiring harness is not on top of the seat post it's a tank mount. Many big twins have the harness on top of the backbone. My 02 road king is the same way. It's a split fatbob tank not a peanut.

Its amazing how much attention to minor details you gray beards pick up on from one picture. I appreciate everyone's knowledge and opinions. Much respect
