Hello and welcome to the listing for my 1954 FL 74" Panhead bobber/chopper named "Ginger".  Yes, it is almost identical to the red one owned by Brad Pitt, but that is just a coincidence.  We don't know one another but it seems we share some of the same interests and tastes.  However I am not sure of his machine's provenance.Ginger is an ex-Bandido bike from Texas that carries a 1977 Texas frame stamp and was assembled and titled in that year. I purchased Ginger in 1992 and have had her sympathetically restored over the intervening 24 years. The electrical wiring was the first element redone in 1993 and the engine rebuilt in 2008 when the jugs were bored out and the original 1948 "plumbing style" heads were rebuilt using new fero-ceramic (read here very expensive) valve seats to accommodate unleaded gas. At the same time I installed new tanks that were freshly painted with the 1940's style emblems installed. In 2010, I moved her into storage when I moved to storage where she has been attached to a battery tender and subsequently ridden very rarely due to an ACL rebuild on my knee that makes starting her difficult given the compression from the rebuild. In other words, Ginger needs a younger owner who has all their original parts to start and enjoy this amazing statement bike as it should be. She is very much a 1-3 jump start bike (decreases directly with amount of use, ride her daily and one jump is all it takes) that rides low, loud and fast! The photos included were taken in 2010 and during storage their has been some gas seepage that has stained the paint on the low side when on her stand. Outside of that all the work I have done has the appropriate patina for her age. The only contemporary style part is an Arlen Ness headlight on a custom made (unchromed) bracket. The tires have some cracking from age but hold air and are serviceable. I have had the original Brooks-style seat recovered with fresh vinyl to repair a rip. As typical with this kind of purchase, Ginger comes with two extra carbs, an unused sissy bar, two sets of tanks with mounts in various states of repair, custom built axles to accommodate the 19" wheels on an original 1948 style springer forks, and many other period correct odds and ends to keep her in the state of her original build. Two medium u-haul boxes worth, so please account for that in calculating shipping cost.  Shipping assistance to buyers outside of the US requires using the "Buy It Now" option.  Ginger goes to its new owner with only 518 "break in" miles on the engine rebuild.Why buy a replica of an outlaw biker machine when you can have an original for the same amount of money and impress every other Harley owner in the process?  Happy shopping. I am happy to answer questions, and help arrange shipping for lucky new owner.
