Shovelhead Chop built by the Gasbox

I wanted to quiz the builder on this bike in person but The Gasbox proprietor was as elusive as the Ohio Unicorn and was missing from all the fun and games. I had to extract the info from the bikes owner Tyler Malinky of Lowbrow Customs fame.

Jessie at the Gasbox started out with a basket Shovelhead project and turned it into the gem you see here.
The frame is #008 single down tube Built by Mullins Chain Drive with a 1975 Harley Davidson Shovelhead drive line installed. A Morris mag lights the fire for minimal wiring. The custom bits that I noticed were the chromed Gasbox rear fender and 2 into 1 exhaust, the modified double titmouse tail light. Modified 35mm triple trees and fork covers and custom laced high shouldered aluminum wheels.

heres some more pics i snagged of this bike while at Born Free, the California sun really brings out the sparkle- KC
