Slims fab ironhead for Leo






This bike came to me long ago for a hardtail oil bag ,and the basic chopper gig...then he came to me with an old HD springer to get installed....Then the man behind the bike, Santa Ana s LEO wanted the thing cleaned up and a few things changed such as a disc conversion ,I did this using a sotail master and a 2000 sporty caliper.I built him some super curly rabbit ears,mounted his bates light,reshaped his early triumph fender and hung it under a 19" sissy bar I built holding his tailight and lic. plate. After all was fabbed i pulled it down to a bare frame and blasted the frame, etch primed it, and shot it with laquer(piano black) and heavy laquer clear. Same treatment went into the oil bag and fender. I then put the bike back together for Leo to bring home( sounds easy doesnt it....it aint) and i forgot a bunch of fab stuff i did such as pipes ,regulator mount,master cyl mount,right side control etc...Im probly forgetting some shit I did, but fuck it He is riding it and it all worked out, Slim 951 217 8814 Thanks again for the work LEO!!

Love how many Sportsters are getting the "treatment" not to Suck, because, as you know...

Word up Frog.



Wait a second, what's that?

Straight outta' "Planet of The Ape Hangers!"

Shovelhead Rear End Re-do. Part 4: New chain and swap a rear brake line

I got the correct size tire on and adjusted the chain for the new 46 sprocket. The adjustment was pretty huge.


And the chain is junk, too.

The wheel moved back so far that my swingarm converted to rigid caliper bracket won't work either.


Time for a new chain and a reset. Bring the axle almost all the way forward. I don't want to go all the way because I may end up with the 48 back in it.


The brake stay and caliper all work together again.


New chain.


Throw it on and see how much I don't need.


Break it.


Looking good. Add the master link.


Wow! Really? The rear brake line doesn't fit now? That doesn't make a lick of sense.


I have two lines with a pressure switch in between, so I could change the long piece or the short piece. I think this line from my spare parts bin is a bit longer than the long piece that I'm running.


I didn't know for sure until I took it off the bike, but luckily it's just long enough to work well.


Success. I need to fill and bleed the system and ziptie the floppy parts of the line to the frame.


I got a new front tire on it today, too. I need to verify my axle and chain alignment and torque and pin the rear axle nut and the rear end refresh will be complete.

Fuck It




Saw this a month or two ago. It's got the South Bay Swoop that is as much a part of Southern California history as Dick Allen and Fat's Noriega founded. This Ironhead has new tins this month. Still available. You know where to find it if you're interested....
