    Absolute horse manure. That is a mostly stock FXE Shovelhead - which came with a narrow front end, and it has been replaced with a non-customized FLH fork - which is only missing the tin. The "mechanical" front brakes had the very same size shoes and drums from 1949 thru 1971 - and nobody ever left off a hand lever or removed the guts from a drum to "clean up the bike" or "lower the weight" to ride in traffic, either. Back in the 1980's when that wide front end came back in style, the price of those things rapidly went up ten times, and I knew more than a few guys who pieced one together with whatever parts became available, whenever they could get their hands on them! :bluduh

    Don't be shy now... spit it out - your trying to say that some doofus put a set of stripped down panhead front forks on a shovelhead frame then disconnected the front brake. My only question: how did such a doofus get such a cute girlfriend?
