An immaculate and fine running, low mileage example of the '72 Shovelhead!
As the story goes this bike was part of a large collection in Texas; where this 1972 Harley Davidson FLH Shovel Head to underwent a complete restoration. It is the current owner’s understanding and belief that the 9,900 miles on the odometer are original as the condition of some of the original parts he has examined with expert Harley mechanics support the mileage shown on the clock. He’s had many experts hear the engine running and they all concur it is one of the smoothest shovels they have ever heard.
This matching number bike has the majority of its original parts; and underwent a restoration while under the previous owner's care. The machine was dismantled, the frame blasted and powder coated, bodywork repainted in the correct starburst purple, the seat reupholstered, rims, spokes, tires, all fasteners, cables, hoses and fittings renewed. The original owner was told that the engine was well within specification and that it was reassembled with new gaskets, seals etc.
The bike was sold to the current owner with 9,952 miles; stated by the seller as being original. It now shows 9,954 and will likely show a few more as it's ridden occaisionally.
This was the first year of the front disk brake. As far as we can tell it is all original with the exception of the front disk brake assembly (chrome caliper holder). We're not not sure if they are correct for the '72, but those luggage hard bags (correct model) look perfect for the machine..
The current owner keeps this bike in running order and starts it regularly. It’s ridden occasionally and then lovingly detailed back to the condition you see in the pics.
