1980 Harley Shovelhead Hardtail

"Harley Ed" of Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States made available these photographs of his gorgeous 1980 Harley Shovelhead Hardtail Bobber which has a Paughco Hardtail Wishbone frame and a Kraftech springer fork, and which had the Harley Davidson Shovelhead engine upgraded through a 93 cubic inch S&S Sidewinder™ stroker kit.

Ed: "Hi I'm Ed from Va. Beach Va. I'm sending you a few pictures of my Harley Shovelhead completed at IronCore cycles here at the beach in March. We call her "Raw Dawg". Hope you like her!"

Sidewinder Shovelhead Performance Upgrade

Ed's hardtail bobber is powered by a 1980 Shovelhead engine with 93 cui./1530 cc S&S Sidewinder big bore stroker kit. This Shovelhead performance upgrade provides a combination of performance, engine life, and practicality. And with this S&S upgrade this Harley engine runs exceptionally smooth because of the moderate compression ratio of 8.5 : 1.
