Master Deluxe










The rough beginings of a little pan/shovel combo we built in about 06. Stock HD cone shovel cases, 74" rotating assembly with .010 over 80" cylinders that we took the bottom three fins off. STD heads and SU carb. The frame was built from three original Ford straight axles that we added some more curve to. Tons of help on this frame from a good friend Carlyle or I should say I helped him.. Stainless sleeves welded through the tank and Ludwig "Speed King" bass drum pedals for floor boards with a pulley/cable clutch which at that time we hadn't seen before.. Our plan was to nickel plate the frame on this bike and just paint the tank and fender but time didn't allow.. I want it back!
