Up for auction is my restored 66 FLH, the first year of the Shovelhead. Its an early 66 with a build date of August 65 which explains the outer primary with slotted screw for access to the compensator for greasing. The bike underwent an 18 month restoration using as many OEM parts as was reasonably possible or if even available. The exhaust is reproduction, just too difficult to find OEM so many years later. The generator is modern with an internal regulator so the external one by the battery is just for show. Everything has been rebuilt including the original speedometer but the face was left untouched, the speedo has an August 65 date code on it. The rims are OEM non-beadlock as per civilian bikes in 66 with OEM hubs rebuilt and stainless spokes blasted to look cad plated. Fenders and tanks are OEM, console is original re-chromed, front end is entirely OEM with NOS electra-glide emblems, rebuilt forks and still has the original unrestored (Harley Davidson stamped on the stems) mirrors, nice unrestored original handlebars and the original jiffy stand with no loop or tab on the end. Brake drums and backing plates are OEM, shoes are new. Frame and swing arm match date-wise with the forging and die numbers so its original to the frame. The engine is original to the frame as is the transmission, both fully rebuilt including pistons, rings, gears, bearings, valves, springs etc. The heads are the correct dates and the rocker boxes still have the casting numbers visible - never polished or chromed. Belly pan left off for the photos to show the case numbers. New primary chain and tensioner, new O-ring chain to keep the rear wheel clean. The rear shocks are original and restored, definitely not the easiest path to take but looking right matters. The carb is an S&S super E with a modified base plate but the correct air cleaner cover without Harley insignia which was a 66 only feature. Tank emblems are OEM with patina, both say Fox Co on the backside. I have the original (restored) Linkert with intake and air cleaner base with choke mechanism that goes with the bike. Correct RH-55 tail light has a glass lens, incorrect for anything but 1955 but I like it. The seat is an original seat pan that Heathers Leathers recovered. As I said, everything has been rebuilt, restored or replaced and OEM was my first choice for any parts that were needed. Selling one of my kids to buy an OEM muffler with a dent in it is where I draw the line. I paid $100 instead and put a nice replica muffler on that has spot welds, the lower rolled seam and so-so chrome just like original.
Thinning the herd and other interests is the motivation behind the sale, its that simple.
Ill assist with shipping or export paperwork through a broker to make it an easy transaction should someone outside of Canada have interest.
