1975 Harley FLH Electra Glide

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

Restore to excellent stock condition, but as time went on I went a different direction.

What motivated you to start your project?

I have a 1975 Super Glide and always wanted a FLH

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

Restored bike to better then new condition and painted or powdered coated many parts black and made my own custom design black hubs , stainless steel spokes and from wheel was a 21 inch , engine rebuilt from ground up to run built 5 speed built transmission .  All stock aluminum was polished .  Paint is gloss black with cream pink stripe

What are you most proud of?

That I am a live after being hit on my 75 SuperGlide 5 years ago.  This 75 FLH was a project that helped me through with family and friends.  Old Detroit bikers had critical input and support.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

Nicest custom AMF FLH , simple black and great stance, exhaust is cool and loud.

    A tasteful build that updates a classic. Very clean and well thought out.

    That’s what I would say is a proper shovel, clean and to the point, great build.

    I HAVE A 1968 FLH SHOVELHEAD I HAVE OWNED SINCE 1972. ODDLY ENOUGH I DID MANY OF THE SAME UPGRADES AND CHANGES OVER THE YEARS TO MY SHOVELHEAD, I CALL “THE BLACK” BECAUSE I POWDER COATED MANY OF THE PARTS LIKE THE 1975 I SEE HERE. IT MAKES ME SMILE. FORTY YEARS AGO MANY PEOPLE WOULD LOOK AT MY SHOVELHEAD AND SAY, “WHY SO MUCH BLACK”? WELL I HAVE TO SAY IT IS MY FAVORITE COLOR AND HAS BEEN EVEN BEFORE I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL IN THE SIXTIES. REGARDLESS I THINK THIS 1975 SHOVELHEAD SHOWS A DEGREE OF CLASS YOU DON’T SEE VERY OFTEN AND I APPLAUD THE OWNERS EFFORTS TO CREATE A REALLY CLASSY BIKE, WHICH MEANS HE MUST BE A CUT ABOVE HIMSELF.
