1973 Ironhead in Paughco Frame

Scott from Panama City, Florida, sent us these photos of his Harley hardtail chopper which has a 1973 XLH Ironhead engine in a 1980's Paughco rigid frame. She has 1978 anniversary powdercoated wheels, and the hardtail frame has been powder coated as well. The 1973 Ironhead 1000cc motor was rebuilt and has kicker starting only. It has a Crane Hi 4 ignition and coil, S&S Super E Carb, and the wrapped exhaust pipes have upswept goosenecks.

To keep all this on the road, this Short Chop has dual discs in the front and a drum brake in the back, forward controls, and 16 inch apes.
