    Don't have a bike right now, but I want to build a pan/shovel (lower end panhead, upper end shovel head, on a hard-tail frame, springer front end, old style fat bob tanks) sometime in the next few years.

    I had a '90 883 Sportster and traded it in for a '98 Softail Custom, I owned it til about a year ago. I currently am without a bike, had to sell my Softail, but I am planning to another before too long.

    I'm just getting into the bike world but I'd love to either have a old shovelhead. or a newer sporster with larger tanks to make up for my width /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Gotta low ball it as I am on a big budget but working on them like i do now means much like the blazer labor is free. Ideally when I graduate I want a big arse dresser decked out and do some travelling.

    I own an '83 Harley David. (that is me, my name) /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I haven't had enough to buy a bike yet. My Dad currently has a '01 HD Deuce. He has had is stroked to 96" and is running 95+ HP to the rear tire. He is looking to get more work done to it to get it to over 100 HP.

    When I was born my dad had an '84 1/2 Sportster and a '59 panhead. His panhead was a custom show bike. It had a 25 over springer front end and a custom pearl paint job of a goddess fighting a dragon on the tank. It was an awesome bike. He sold it a few years back. It was totally restored to its show condition and was put on display in the HD shop in Tokyo Japan.

    This is me and my 86 FXRS Liberty Edition Lowrider. I have a 102 inch stroker, S&S Carb, Andrews EV 27 cam, Wiseco 11.5:1 pistons, shaved flywheels, heads fdrom a 99 springer that have been flowed and ported by Dragonman in Co. Spgs. The 99 heads breath from the top and the 86 crankcase breath from the bottom so the crankcase pressure is nice and low.

    I have a badlander seat and autometer gauges and a little extra chrome. Also repainted it because I hate the Liberty Edition paint job.

    I have another complete set of sheetmetal for it too. FLH style rear fender, skirted front fender and a set of 6 gal fatbobs.

    This is my wife Terri's 96 XLH 883 with a 1200 kit. It has a few goodies in the engine and has lots of shinny stuff. We changed the sheet metal to 6 gallon fatbobs, FLH style rear fender, and a badlander seat. We moved the gauges to the tank and added autometer speedo.

    Me, Madmike! 1990 FLSTC Heritage Softail, the only thing I ever bought brand new! Re-geared final drive, cammed, carbed, ignition, pipes, milled heads, over 71,000 miles and still going strong! I'd post a pic, but I'm a gearhead /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif, not much of a computer whiz /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.
