We finally finished servicing and repairing this ’82 Superglide. New shoes, clutch, exhaust and a full service has brought this one to completion. Well, except for the stock air cleaner which we are trying to source some necessary parts for. In any event, we have a beautiful bike and a happy customer!! This is certainly the best riding shovelhead I’ve been on in quite some time!! Now to putt down the road in style!!
This Lowrider is almost stock and an impeccable example nearly four decades old! Our customer requested raised white letter tires to make it period correct, but, alas, the only ones I could find still in production were sized for full dressers. So, I found a “special” tire marking paint pen and took to filling in the lettering of these Dunlop tires and thought they came out fantastic!! We’ll find out how long they hold up, the pen manufacturer claims one year, time will tell…
Converting this 1992 FLHS to a trike seriously taxed my skills and patience! The assembly is basically a Paughco clone of Harley’s trike, but due to the FLHS having a different triple tree assembly than any other bike, I was obligated to modify and fabricate every component for the extra 6˚ of rake necessary to keep the trike stable. The Baker reverse kit was a breeze to install, a new mainshaft and side cover to house the gears, forks and solenoids to operate the system replaced the stock components perfectly. And best of all, Danny is ecstatic with the finished product!!
Now that I have a trike kit notch on my belt, I am ready to tackle the next one!!
