"Just what Carsten said, sometime it is difficult to categorize a bike. With the Triton it was easy, but with my shovel it was a lot more difficult, there was no category like Chop Rod or someting like that. Somebody else said "We are all…"

Hello Jerry! How's that Shovelhead beast running? Coker reproduces the tire under their name and it will be a clincher type regardless of size. I've never seen one of these that didn't use size 20" X 2" but I'm always finding exceptions and Coker will ask a few questions to help verify your application. Great people to deal with. Some of the motorcyle photos are ones I've had for years or taken myself but most are sent to me by friends or posted somewhere on the net. As for those other images, well, just trying to be a good citizen. Good luck with the projects! Craig.
Jerry, Check your tappet guide bore clearance/cam bearing condition and if everything is good start with .004"-.006" cold. Coker should have a replacement tire and their service is great. You've got it goin on with the Shovelhead build! I'm going to the garage. Keep in touch, Craig.
