The Shovelhead run...


Nothing can compare to the sound of a straight pipe, big cam Shovel..Evo's got the ride right...smooth and soft..Made the Shovelhead run for a few Saturday afternoon..Lot's of the pre 1984 machines on display..Old friends and new builds..changes and restores..Ridged's and retro's..Racers and cruisers..

Ever sit next to a fine tuned Shovel...Nothing on this planet can equal the rumble of it..Ever hear 30 or 40 of them going down the road as one..sweet...Sure they leak a little oil..hands might go numb from the vibration..ass might ache from the ride but it was the last true ride there is..Ever had a kickstart contest..on an Evo..Anyone remember the load clack as you drop into first to roll out for the day..the bang between the gears..positive pop between every shift..Hey I changed and gaped the points before I left..LOL..

Ever been at a stop light next to any other v-twin made and compare the sound..listen to the shovel rumble..suck'n air through the S&S keeping the bad boy breathing..Cam talking loud at the peaks and and twisting hard in the valleys..Pipes spitting out sound..apes shaking in the wind with every spark..Tweak the throttle just to turn heads..ain't nothing like a Shovelhead...

You forgot the rear ‘banana’ brake. Looks cool, but sucks and always will.
