panhead bobber347 views"just finished!!! February 15th 2014

When I bought this Panhead in the States last May 2013 it was a bit different and in pretty rough shape. I rode the thing for a couple of months but it was clear it needed a full restoration before hitting the road for real and be reliable. It needed to be garage made as much as possible because I did not want to just take it to a shop to get it done as I think that nothing feels truly yours unless you get deep into it and just get your hands dirty on it. So my buddies and I stripped it down to the bone then took the engine and trans to HP Garage here in Italy for a complete check and tune up and unexpectedly found out the original heads were at the first rebore only. In the meantime Chopper Ronnie fixed all the cracks on the tanks and welded back to life the wishbone frame that I took later to powder coat. We replaced the Super E with a SU carb then the hydra forks with a repop WL springer for the moment and replaced the original bobbed style rear fender with a ribbed one. All the fab parts were made by the master of steel Isi who I can’t thank enough for his patience with the picky me and Diego did the paint.
