’84 SHOVELHEAD FLH

I got to photograph this way cool ’84 Shovelhead last weekend. The bike is owned and was built by Middle Tennessee’s own Mr. Sins (fabricator and painter) and I think everything on it is modified in some way. One of my favorite parts though is the 1976 SuperGlide tank. Sins got this tank from his dad and he can actually remember riding around the yard with his dad on his bike, while he sat on this tank when he was a kid. What a cool two-wheeled legacy!

Here’s the details on the rest of Sins work: WideGlide front end, SuperGlide rear fender, ’56 Sporty tail lights (filled), Sporty bars, SU Carb, Motor is Stroked, S&S Rods and Flyweights, Branch Heads, 5 Speed Trans, Paint: Blue Steel Metal Flake/Vivid Black / White Stripes.

  2. It’s not your Daddy’s shovel…. but it damn sure is close! I can’t hardly breathe while looking at this proud shovel… I love tank stock to the period of the shovel, just not FLH stock … the brakes are new…and cool. The air cleaner lends a fine and lean look to the bike. Don’t over power the engine or hide it…I’m loving the forward positioning of the controls. Always more comfy than what came on that bike stock… lovely bike…simply lovely. Clean lines, just enough bling to give it an eye candy appeal, yet simple. It’s my kind of ride.
