The un-molested 1982 Harley Shovelhead for sale is a clean, 1982 FXR with just over 34k miles. The old Shovelhead has the original paint, engine, seat, and runs and rides beautifully.


The motor starts right up, runs great and idles well. All of the motorcycle's lights work, and the transmission shifts smoothly.

There are no rips in the seat and the seat hinge and latch work well.

The only non-stock parts I can identify is the 'Live to Ride' derby cover, and handlebar mount. The mirrors appear to be non - stock as well but that's it.

The paint is original and does have some minor chips and wear that you would expect on a 35 year old motorcycle with this number of miles, but it is very clean for its age and mileage.

It does not appear to have ever been laid down, and I would have to guess it spent most if not all of its life stored inside a garage.

I bought it last fall for the drive train, I was going to use in my hardtail project, however, this bike is too nice and un-molested to make a parts bike out of it.


I believe that it may even have the original assembly grease crayon marks on it from the factory (see pictures) and all of the plating on the carb still looks really nice.

and you will see that this one is nicer than most and could make
a great daily rider.



This ole Harley is touted as the best handling bike Harley ever made (Eric Buell was involved in the design).

The 1982 Harley Shovelhead for sale is in Saint Clair Shores, MI (Metro Detroit area) Michigan and I'm asking
$5500. I'm holding a clean, green title for the old bike in my name. Not looking to trade.
