    Beautiful shovel!! Would love to have the time to restore a pre-AMF bike myself, but I think that will be more of a "after kids are grown" sort of goal.

    That's looks like my old Shovel. Different paint scheme though. I do love the old bikes. Mine was a 79 as well. Dyna Lowrider. Nice job!

      Thanks, I been wanting to get a Pro paint job but wow there expensive. There's probably Millions of miles on this one, I bought it from a guy that worked for me at the time He rode it hard chasing chicks had a hole in primary swing arm bearings were worn slap out I paid to much for it. But at the time I needed fixer upper and liked the old school steel shovels. Its took a while but finally got it dialed in and it stays together.. he he

    A buddy had a '79 HD Fatty and I had a '79 Triumph Bonneville Special Edition and we use to ride the shit out of them bike. Man we had a blast traveling on them, rode trips for 3-4 days when we were off work. Kick myself for sale in the Triumph, but bought a Goldwing and that was a cruzzer.. Good lookin bike.
