1969 Shovelhead

Simply Shovel

Submitted by Joshua Givens | Manatee River Harley-Davidson

Here is my 1969 Shovelhead. It’s in a 1957 Harley and the last year of the rigid frame. It has a Hydra Glide front end, S&S 98-inch Kit, XL tank, and a few other cool things I think really set the bike off.

2005 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 Custom

Dirt Rider Sporty

Submitted by Gary Schoenmann | Rochester, MN

This is a build I completed this fall. I already had it out on a few rides, and it is a blast. While I love the hard pavement, I’ve always wondered where some of those gravel roads lead to. On a few trips, I’ve seen some beautiful scenery. I plan on getting it out in the snow soon as well. The bike was a 2005 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 Custom. It was yellow, and that had to go. Even with the high-quality parts used, it is a low-budget build and worth every penny.
