Shovelfest IX - Saturday Part 1

It's a beautiful morning.


Headlight's bike. OBVI.

The fishing derby: Julia doing her thing.

You know Troy won't pass up a chance to fish either.

One of Brian's Shovelhead and Sarai's Twink.

Oh the beautiful clearwater creeks of Tennesee.

The impressive part of this one is the coveted No. 1 points cover is still riveted on and the factory electronic ignition is still firing the bike.

Julia won the fishing contest and got a shirt big enough to be a dress.

That goofball left his brand new camera in the pocket of his truck door and told everyone
he lost it.

Of course my bike is not running right. It's cutting out at WOT like hitting a rev limiter. I had already tried main jets with no change. I figured a coil swap couldn't hurt. The coil I got from Trent didn't help the problem, but I am glad I swapped this before it fell off my bike.

Like he's never seen that before.

Ain't no party like a creek party.

Cory models and tests the oar we found yesterday.

There was a stone skipping seminar as well.

Who invited a Panhead?

Jethro is unamused.

Kevin is still ready for more.

This is my good friend Noah. He is one of two of my first marital arts instructors.  He doesn't own a bike, but lives in Tennessee now. I invited him out to SpartaFest last year and he took right to the rest of our crew. So I invited him out again.

These ladies posed and not one chicken wing in the squad.

The lady on the right is Knucklebucket's sister. There seems to be an ongoing debate between the two on who is the retarded sibling.

She seems to like Chris.

Ladies love outlaws.

A picture of getting ready for a picture.

Fridays Are For Racin'

One major update for Strange Days 9, is that the flat track racing will ONLY take place on Friday night, July 12th 2019.  This should make everyone else that's not looking to compete, and just have a good old time happy!  Saturday July 13th will be all about the chopper show and old bikes that fill the grounds each year; as well as the amazing live tunes that will be cranking all day and night.  (More on that stellar music lineup coming soon!)  So get your hot shoes ready for Friday, and set your barefoot party feet free on Saturday!
Stay tuned!

Pipe Diameter

These pipes are small diameter 1 1/2".... I guess back in the day, the factory felt the K Model 750cc side valves worked best with these smaller diameter headers?  Similar sized to the ports, etc.  I always like the big, free flowing straight pipes, but so far, this thing seems extra responsive and hopefully it will help bring back some low end to this thing . . ?  Factory stock early Sportster muffler.  It's got a set of -60R KR heads on it, and I resleeved the cylinders, new valves, guides, etc.  The Delorto PHM38 is my new carb-of-choice (if you don't want to run an M53 Linkert).  I haven't really rode it around yet, so I'm sure I'll have some tuning issues coming up.  Hopefully not - is always nice !  I added my set of -60 aluminum wheels (I'd been saving for who know what?) and figured I may as well start using some of this stuff.... One thing is for sure, H-D made some pretty neat bikes back with the Ks and early Sportsters.  Some of the neatest lookin' if done right.
