street style: shovelhead hollywood dell, ca

Early 1970s Shovelhead spotted on Beachwood Canyon Road, North of Franklin Avenue.
Harley Davidson is written in a font similar to the one used by AMF, a clue that the bike was built after Harley Davidson's take over of AMF in 1969.
 The headlight cover resembled a small baseball hat.
 A single Mukuni flatside carb feeds the 1208 cc (74 cu in), air-cooled, push rod motor.
 Viewed from the left side, the black painted case iron motor looks positively ancient.
 Long and lean and disc brakes and not too much rake. This is Harley worth having.
I'd like it better if it was kick start.
