THE IRON TRADER NEWS 1978 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLH PROJECT IS UNDERWAY! STAY TUNED TO WATCH IT’S CONVERSION TO A STUNNING CUSTOM WHILE MAINTAINING IT’S CLASSIC STYLE USING PARTS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE FROM OUR FRIENDS AT ULTIMA, S&S CYCLE, KLOCK WERKS, PENN JERSEY CYCLE, BELT DRIVES, LTD., CORBIN, NAMZ CUSTOM CYCLE PRODUCTS, & CONTINENTAL MOTORCYCLE TIRES.
A family friend of ours in Jim Thorpe, PA had this FLH in her garage for over 10 years. It was her late husbands project, and it was time to move it on so I picked her up, brought it to our shop in Philly (Johnny Mac’s Chopper House), gave her a bath, and so our re-build project begins. Once complete I will personally ride this bike back to Jim Thorpe to share the completion of her husbands original dream with her & her daughters. We had to spend some time on this baby already just getting the motor & brakes back to running order, but Jack at Penn Jersey Cycle killed it, and now she runs better than original. Next step, everything. All new metal, wheels, bars, seat, S&S carb, pipes, & paint. Our great friends at KLOCK WERKS are sending us two amazing fenders which is exactly what this re-build needed. Stay tuned everyone, this project is going to be fun!

Today was a fun day, we dropped off our Ultima King Spoke Wheels at Penn Jersey Cycle to have the Continental tires put on them. When we returned to our shop, the Brakes & Floor Boards from Belt Drives Ltd. were there waiting for us. It’s exciting, this project is gaining steam. And a quick trip over to Penn Jersey Cycle… and the rims and tires become one.
