Project Basket case

  • Project Basket case
    I just traded the 1990 XLH Sporster for a Harley basket case, witch includes a 80 CI Shovelhead engine and a 1957 straight leg rigid frame. also a 4 speed Trans with  Elect/Kick start.
    I will post before & after pictures as well as during the building of my new project.
    I will most likely trade the shovelhead engine for a panhead engine as I prefer Panheads. So heads up if anyone has an old pan and wants a shovel let me know. 
    I hope to get started next week.
