So I won a motorcycle build contest that gives me tons of free parts and services.
It’s called The Greasy Dozen.
So I went out and scooped up this 78 Shovel from western Ohio last night. Runs and drives. Guy was selling all of his bikes before the weekend before some divorce shit happened. This was his personal bike. I actually felt bad when I was loading it all up because he looked pretty sad about it.
Has a clean title. Got it for 4200 which is about 2 grand less than other shovels in worse condition with salvage/special-built titles.
Included a bunch of extras including a second set of OEM tins, new unpainted aftermarket tanks and fender, windshield, and THESE saddle bags that I’d never use but are brand new.
So here’s what I’m starting with:
He also threw in this CB 550 which needs a few minor things (most of which I already have) for free!
My plans for the shovel are:
big (not wide) tires
high mid controls
idk what else… I plan to be fabbing a lot of stuff. The CB i will probably get it fixed and running and then sell it for an easy $1000+
