Here is an incredible conversion of a super clean low mileage Twin Cam 2007 6-speed Harley Springer Softail Classic. This is the second Softail I have converted to a Panhead tribute, using $20,000 of parts to make a modern running and driving bike look like it’s 70 years old.
That’s the reason I build these tribute bikes, I have the old school feel and look with all the modern capabilities, comfort and reliability of a new bike. I think of this build as a resto mod in car terms.
The bike has countless parts in the conversion such as:Hardtail Paughco rear fenderHardtail center standHardtail rear crash guardHardtail tool boxHardtail rear luggage rackPanhead style rocker box coversPanhead style cam cover with real distributor mounted on itPanhead style engine sidecover with clutch buldgePanhead reproduction air cleaner assembly with a K&N retrofit air filter and Panhead reproduction chrome outer coverPanhead style generator cover covering the oil filterPanhead Speedball tank badgingPanhead style custom installed functioning hand shifter, duplicate action with normal foot shifter (normal hand clutch)Panhead style hornRelocation of the CPU to under the seatCustom handmade exhaust with Panhead heat guards but o2 sensors still attached, merged into a Paughco Fishtail exhaustCustom PM front hand controls including the required clutch activation switchMotone push buttons including relays to operate Harley electrical systemPaughco Hollywood HandlebarsBottlecap handgripsOld school Harley half moon footboardsHardtail Panhead style leather saddlebags (try to find these)Crossbones cateye dashOld school Harley SpeedometerBrand new bearings and wheels with stainless steel spokes and Pirelli Route 66 old school looking modern tiresNew Deka batteryTractor seat with old school wearFully custom made 6 speed trans cover with actual Panhead / Shovelhead kicker with Fudgsicle pedal (non functioning)Harley Davidson factory key fob security system with two fobsCustom grey old school Harley paint jobNo turn signals, didn’t need them in 1948, also the factory rear fender spars have been removed to make it possible to mount the hardtail fenderStuff I’ve forgotten about ……. over $20K in conversion costs not counting my hundreds of hours over a year and a halfMost importantly – Harley Davidson 2007 Softail Michigan Title (clear, no liens)
This bike is listed at a steal price, it would cost over $40K to pay someone to duplicate this bike. Be one of a kind
