Lot 394: 1979 Harley-Davidson 1979 Cone Shovel Jockey Shift Custom
Thirty years has only added to the luster of this 1979 Cone Shovel based custom. Painted a passion purple/cream with matching acres of chrome, it sets the pace for Shovel Fans and anyone else for that matter thanks to a bevy of dress-up accessories and custom pieces. A swingarm frame and Wide Glide front end smooth out the miles and foster plenty of smiles as does the classic look and user-friendly inclusion of both kick and electric start. While there�s modern upgrades like the maintenance friendly wide belt-drive to the rear wheel, this bike�s got a surprise or two including the addition of a jockey shift for a real taste of vintage riding. Along with that feature are a ratchet lid and foot-clutch plus the added safety benefits of GMA brakes front and rear.
They say greatness is in the attention to details and this bike�s got several yards of that in the form of stainless steel lines-including oil and brake lines and even the throttle cable-adding both form and function. And check out the chromed swingarm and oil tank not to forget the elegant, and very functional, bank of fog lamps mounted up on the front end. People will definitely see you coming and going.
The officiating mechanic describes this bikes as �all dolled up.� Anyway you look at it, it�s a beauty.
