This is a 1957 vintage 1,200 CC Pan Head I built up about 1970.


It's in a 1958 vintage Harley Duo-Glide swing arm frame on which I shimmed the bearing cups so I could run a 4" extended 1966 Sportster front end with a custom built 2.75 x 17" skinny front spool wheel.

The seat was era Corbin-Gentry brand and the sissy bar & pipes I fabricated. Back in those days if you wanted custom stuff like wheels or extended cables or pipes, or a sissy bar,you built them because there weren't many sources of custom parts.
