Long Haul Shovel

I'm excited about my next project: "Long Haul Shovel". I'm in the early stages of gathering parts. I've got an FLH front end, stock frame (I'm leaving it swing arm), cone shovel engine and 4 speed ratchet top transmission.

I'll be on the lookout for panhead style 3.5 split tanks and a juice drum rear wheel set up at the Barbers Swap Meet.

I'm hoping the bike turns out like the one pictured above, with the only changes being a two up seat vs. solo. The goal is comfort for the "long haul"...longer road trips. I'm shooting for next year's Big Mountain Run for completion but am in no hurry!
