NAGATA SHOVEL Garage Built Bikes

This classic shovelhead bobber belongs to Yoshifumi Nagata out of Iizuka, Fukuoka Japan. Some of the unique features that caught my eye on this one are the moon disk in the back racing Firestone tire, the absent front fender, the seat-back style, the moon eyes oil bag, and the open exposed carb without so much as a spaghetti strainer style filter to stop the flies and gnats. It looks like that Sporty tank may have been widened? or something is making it look wide and flat and those one off bars are way cool in my book.

Built In: Japan Bike Style: Bobber
