Rare Factory Correct Tankshift 1965 Panhead Electra Glide

OK, here is a photo of my next project bike in basic “as bought” condition. I plan to use this rare ex-police 1965 Harley Panhead – rare because it came from the factory with 3 1/2 gallon tanks and handshifter set up.

Rare 1965 Harley Panhead Tank-Shifter

This was the last year for actual tankshifters, as the 1966 Shovelhead came with the handshifter mounted on the down tubes. This one has been repainted a few times and has had some parts swapped out since it came off service as a police motorcycle.

Classic Harley Panhead Art

Nothing special, but I like this photo of the left side gas tank and handshifter of my 1948 Harley Panhead.

I had just ridden to the local gas station to fill up and the sun was going down, so I pulled over to take this photo with my cellphone camera.

Looks artsy, so thought we’d share it here. – Buzz Kanter
