    It has an Indian head on the tank, 1940's.

    Well haven't found one I'm looking for so I'll do some history: Harley- Davidson made the "Shovelhead" from 1966 - 1984. The 66-69 was a generator lower end, Your's is not one of those. The Bike has been "Customized" it has a repoduction taillight for starters, Known as a bee-hive, these where on Knuckelheads. It is a "LOW-RIDER" model. Take notice of the dual gauges on the gas tanks and the narrow front end. The low rider was first made in 1977 and first belt drive was 1983, so it narrows it down to 1977-83,

    Thanks for the newest photo Mani, it shows me the belt drive, that dates it to 1983-84. Shovelheads last two years. Evo's took over from there. Again great M/C love it.
