Rich P. Mifflin and Kyle Trailes' Shovelhead Chopper

Shovelhead Chopper Motorcycle

Throttle Addiction Shovelhead Hardtail Chopper Build

Builders: Rich P. Miflin, Kyle Trailes

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Engine: 1976 Harley Davidson Cone Shovelhead

Throttle Addiction's Hardtail for Shovelhead and Panhead Frames

Build Time: 6 Months

Wheel setup: Rear is an 18" Akron rim laced to a chromed shovelhead hub. The front is a Led Sled 21" invader.

Tires: Rear is a shinko 270, and the front is a vintage firestone coker tire. 

Gas Tank: Throttle Addiction Ironhead Sportster replica tank with a frisco tab welded on the rear and some wicked lightning bolts we molded onto the side panels. 

Handlebars: 7" tall Vitzy Boys chrome cast risers with some 6" tall pre unit bars and an internal throttle setup. 

Front End: 6 over 35mm front end with some Pooks Parts extended chrome lowers.

Paint: The Tins were painted by Mikey Machine, and Rich P. Miflin hand painted the reaper on the oil bag.

Seat: The seat is a custom pan made by Cornerstone MFG that was all stitched up by M00nrider.

Exhaust: We built these dual upswept pipes from scratch here in the shop. 

Other cool features: The sissy bar/tail light combo is by far our favorite part of the bike. We built them both from scratch here and we're super proud of how they came out!

The only reason we came about this project is because I was cast for a small role in a new Apple TV series, where I ended up meeting the previous owner of the original basket-case bike. He and I hit it off on set and instantly became friends. A little while later, he invited us over to his warehouse where this incredibly beat up shovelhead was sitting. He hooked us up with a great deal and the rest is history!

Shoutout to all of our Philly homies that gave us a late night hand in the shop!
