Thread: WANTED: 1970 FLH OP Full Set

    WANTED: 1970 FLH OP Full Set

    I am the current curator of a fairly original 1970 FLH, except obviously for the tins (and lots of old chrome). PO had a nice set of Panhead tins already painted and decided to equip the bike as such. He claimed they were from a '65, no proof of this claim. The tanks have the Panhead badge mounting brackets, badges and a fuel shut off, not a petcock. Front fender has hole for the left side front brake line. Besides those clues I can not prove they are '65. Not sure if rear fender has any tell tale signs of vintage. Paint is not original but nice for a rider.

    I would like to buy or trade for a four piece set of OP tanks and fenders. Do not need to be perfect, just nice. Only looking for 1970 paint schemes. Trying to make her look like a nice unmolested rider. Trying to make her look like a Shovel, not a wanna-be Panhead. I also have what are allegedly the original gas tanks, but with a custom paint job. Could be part of a trade.

    What do you have??????

    I would suggest getting ahold of Jeff Coffman at Jeff's American Classics. The guy gets around, and has tons of stuff. Lots of people turn to Jeff when they're looking for something specific.
    I'm not saying he'll have exactly what you want, but it's sure worth a shot. Give him a call....

    BI, thank you for the lead, email has been sent to Jeff.

    To all viewing, I would be willing to start with just a set of tanks if that is what you have, thanks to all for looking and reading.

    There are painters that can exact match color and graphics, this is a viable route.

    It is a viable route, and one I may pursue at some point. But the bike has a nice used look to it, shiny new paint is not what I am looking for, OP with some wear (not lots, just some) would fit her best. I am not looking to redo the entire bike, I actually want to ride the heck out of it. But thanks.

    PS just to make the hunt harder, I spoke with the seller, he bought the bike last year from a friend that had it since 1975-ish. They both knew the bike since new (it never left Jersey until I bought it) and they both have confirmed she was always blue. Soooooooo, now I am looking for 1970 OP in BLUE, haystack is getting bigger!!
