1968 Harley FL Shovelhead Bobber

Jeremiah from Phoenix, Arizona, United States made available these photos of this sleek 1968 Harley FL Shovelhead Bobber which has a 74 cubic inch Generator Shovelhead engine.

Jeremiah: "You are looking at a "period perfect" 1968 FL 74" Generator Shovelhead with matching engine cases. The motor is equipped with an S&S Super E carburetor with chrome air cleaner removed for pics. Mallory ignition, High output 12-volt chrome generator, and dual plug heads. The motor runs very well and starts up easily, with a couple of kicks. The bike has a very early 4-speed transmission and a new BDL 1.5 belt drive."

The springer forks are offset 1947-1948 repo with old 6" Z-bars with vintage grips. The bike is wired with vintage yellow and black cloth wiring. It has OEM FXR mid brake control with OEM Harley black and white pegs and a custom made mid shifter setup."

The front wheel is an OEM Star hub laced to a 21" wheel with a new ribbed tire.
