Evil ShovelHead Chopper

“Evil Or Sacred” uses as main components a Paughco Wishbone rigid frame with a 30-rake, a fully rebuilt 1974 Harley Shovelhead 80″ engine, a RevTech 4-speed tranyy, a narrow 2″ Tech Cycle primary drive, a genuine Harley Springer front end and a pair of 18″ spoke wheels. After basic mockup and driveline alignment, Jack holding 2 DOT welding certifications and a AWS D1.1 D1.5, had no difficulty getting the fabrication job started and correctly done. Tom Feher provided support in making an oil tank from 2 old fire extinguishers that he had laying around his shop, then bent all rigid fuel and oil lines to be later brass plated. Gabe from After Hours Choppers was called to make the gas and oil caps from solid brass. Steve Weinstock from Lillian Rose Choppers chiseled some metal tattoos on the air cleaner. Most of the custom parts have been chosen from vendors belonging to the Limpnickie Lot , a cooperative of Builders (see tech sheet.) Brian O’Hara of B-Man Stripping applied all pinstriping and gold leaf. (photography copyright Lydia Johnson, Johnson Camera, courtesy to Cyril Huze)
