New (Old) Air Cleaner



Got my hands on a few freebie air cleaners. One is from something in the early 1980’s. These things were fuggley ugly when they came out and they’re even uglier now. So naturally I had to put in on the Shovel. I must say that this is the biggest ugliest damn air cleaner I’ve ever seen. So hell yes it’s staying! Now I’ve got to move the oil gauge, I can’t see it. It’s a never-ending battle messing with these old bikes. Just one more part that has no business being on this bike. Which is kind of the whole point in doing it.

Ohhhh, I like it. It can double as a George Forman grill while camping. And it even has your age stamped on it. Saa-weeet.

Ann: You think that’s bad? Wait ‘till you see the plan I have for the exhaust.
BTW- Anyone got a total crap set of Shovel pipes? Real cheap? I need something to cut and weld.

Wooley: A custom camping bike. There’s a marketing scheme in there somewhere. And duh! They put the 80 on there because it’s the IO of your average Harley rider.

mq01: I’ll just assume that you mean the beauty of it is beyond description.

Lady R: A cat that digs up Harley parts in the backyard? Sounds good to me.

Webster: Oh it’s going to get worse. Some really screwed up homemade parts are in the near future.

Dave: There is a LCD. Didn’t you see it?

You saying it looks like a train wreck?

I’ll call after work.
