    Ok lets get this started.

    If you own a Shovelhead let us all know what you have.

    I have a 1966 FLH Hi-Fi blue and white. Original from paint to chrome. Have 33,213 on the clock. I have a little trouble with the starter but will get into that later.

    Mine is a 'totaled' 1976 FLH, that I bought new, and has been my primary road machine until the minivan took it out of commission. It has been in every state but RI, AK, and HI. I figure to have it back on the road in a couple years.

    My shovel story.....bought a '79 slow rider in 1980, I didn't know better at the time but it was the worse vibrating motor I ever had. Kept it 20 years and finally sold it. I've got an Indian Chief, Panhead, Knucklehead, a Flathead, Horizonal twin, and that damn shovelhead is still the worse motor I've ever owned. I haven't missed it a bit. My wife rode it the last ten years I had it and I went back to my Panhead. She rode it on a couple AMCA national road runs and I worked on it more than any of my older bikes. Sorry, but Ya'll can have them all. Thanks for the space so I could write this!

    Louie -

    That's a shame. Wish that someone could have given it a good once-over. The fact that you bought it so new tells me that it probably was never apart. Broken top motor mount? Or, engine mounted in a bind, where shims should have been used? Or, just plain unbalanced. Up until my 76 was taken out of commission, it was one of the finest road machines I've ridden. And, it was factory stock except for cam and carb.
