Nice looking but he must be smoking some really good $hit to believe he's going to get a price of 18K...and that does not even meet reserve. There are several guys on the shovelhead forum who have some really, really nice 85 Shovels.


Sorry but this seller must think he is going to retire with the money he dreams of making.

Speculators are getting more common with older stock shovels like that , seems guys sitting on shovel parts around here think the stuffs gold and I mean tossed off crap in a crate we where getting for a $10 bill for all a few years back .

Yes and no...MoCo had committed to five-oh folks on deliveries of FLH models so some were actually 1985 models.

Enjoy your ride... shovels are a dying breed...84/85...all good!

They stopped making "production" shovels in 84...but they had tons of contracts for bikes....mostly police depts...that shovels went to in 85...got rid of all their "leftovers'...lol

That is a nice and unique bike...up for collectors mostly I would say. Too much investment for a rider...documentation would have helped this one big time.
