Dusting off a 1967 Harley Shovelhead Motorcycle
Back in the early 1990′s my brother bought a 1967 Harley from our dad. The Shovelhead was a runner, probably the best in his collection, and it didn’t have any issues for several years. He rode that old Harley quite a bit (as did I before he bought it) but he didn’t put much time into the care and maintenance that we all know these older bikes require. To make a long story short, it got to the point where the bike wasn’t running well at all, and he ended up parking it under a tarp in the back of his garage. I estimate that was around 10 years ago. Last week, I asked him if I could come pick it up and get it running for him. Above are some pictures of the bike just out of the trailer after I got home from his house. The bike had literally not seen daylight in 10 years. I’ll be back with more posts and pictures as I clean it up and get it running.
