1955 Harley FL Panhead Bobber

Luke from Appleton, Wisconsin, United States made available these photos of his 1955 Harley FL Panhead Bobber motorcycle which has very clean oldschool looks.

Luke: "The Panhead engine in this bike is an 88 inch stroker, professionally built from the ground up, using polished original matching 1955 cases. Inside, there are S&S heavy duty rods and forged pistons. The entire rotating assembly has been balanced. The STD heads have been ported, and matched, and use Black diamond valves.

The engine runs an Andrews "J" grind camshaft and Jims lifters with Crane hydraulic inserts for low maintenance. There is an S&S oil pump along with a modified breather. This engine is using a S&S super E carb, Cycle Electric generator, and regulator, and Mallory electronic ignition for added reliability, and easy starts."
