Top Shelf Customs Shovel Project

Wayne came in a few months ago looking to get started on a new bike. After talking with him for a bit, we figured out what he was looking for and and started putting together a pile of parts. We're starting out with a Paughco 2" up 1" out rigid frame and a new Paughco stock length tapered leg narrow springer fork. He wants to keep it on the traditional side so we're using wire spoke wheels. He did however decided not to run a front brake so we'll run a rear wheel that we can mount a disc to so, he'll have at least one good stopper, a PM four piston. He's got a set of Biltwell Keystone bars on it now, I'm not so sure if they're going to stay though.
Wayne' ran an Ironhead in his last bike, while really fashionable, fashionable wasn't enough to get the job done. So, this time around he's getting a 93" S&S generator style Shovelhead. If you've ever ridden a bike with one of these in it, you know it gets the job done.
Stay tuned, the rest of it is going together soon.
