In 2018 I bought my second Shovelhead. I had an 82, and gave it to a Buddy, then regretted it when he left it to sit and rot while he gambled. He passed, and my ex-wife (his cousin) ended up with it. She offered it back to me for twice what I had paid for it, before I gave it to my friend. I passed. I decided to build a mild custom "Club Bike" as a tribute to my dear friend, the late Birney Jarvis. Birney was the model for the character Jim Bronson, of THEN CAME BRONSON Tv and Movie fame. The bike that Birney rode on his "Bronson trips' was a 50's Panhead, built by Boozefighter Dugan. It was a bored and stroked Panhead and had floorboards and saddlebags, unlike the Bronson Sportster that Stunt Advisor Bud Ekins built and rode in the show. I had started a Panhead replica of Birney's original bike around 2005, and have it in partially finished mock up. I got off on other projects, and that bike is still sitting unfinished. When I bought the 81 Shovel, my thought was to bui;ld a mild Club style bike, and then it occurred to me that I could add some "Birney" touches to it, just as a nod to my friend.
