AEE Shovelhead replica update

Our buddy John out of Ohio has worked long and hard on his replica. You can now see where it is at. The latest is the sheet metal work to make the frame "square". While AEE originally had Molly mold the frame square John's painter preferred this method. Can't say either is better than the other. All I know is it looks fantastic and getting ever closer to some glorious flake and purple on it! John has gone to excruciating lengths to get this chopper to be an exact replica and he is to be congratulated on his efforts. Both Dave Brackett, the original builder of The Shovelhead at AEE Choppers, and myself have helped long distance with the build.

Klaes sent me a few more pictures.....

Our Swedish friend Klaes sent me a few more pictures of the chopper he built in the 70's using many AEE parts as you can see. Sort of a replica of our famous purple shovelhead. Look it over, it was very well done.



Lenny Cenotti's AEE chopper.......

This is our former parts manager Lenny Cenotti's ex-CHP shovelhead. All the parts he put on it were from AEE Choppers. He did the paint himself and I can tell you it was awesome. I got to see it the day it was done and it was a beauty. Enjoy this blast out of the past.


A new view of a nice chopper and Tom's plane

I've posted this chopper and the plane before but never had this angle on either. Tom's plane was another one painted by Paint by Molly.

These 2 bikes along with some others will be retained.

A collection of AEE parts

Again our friend Justin has provided us with some shots of some nice AEE parts. Enjoy.










Another AEE girder found.....very rare!

A friend of AEE, Justin, came across this girder recently. As you can see it is a single leg which makes it stand out from all the rest of the girders of the time. This particular one has been shortened down to about stock length or even less.  Enjoy and if you find one of these build yourself a very very narrow choppers as you are looking at the thinnest narrowest girder there is.

AEE Kit Bike update

Since I sold the kit bike build to John in Ohio he has worked tirelessly to get it completed. I sold it to him as a roller and he literally disassembled it, made changes and repairs to it to make it even more AEE and period "correct" and has got it back together. John is meticulous in making the chopper exactly as it once was. Somehow he even scored the proper reverse rib fender that I could not find! He's done a wonderful job with this build and soon it will be off to chrome and paint (and AEE brake will be laced up for the front).

Big Twin original EBAY ad

Our friend Klaes in Sweden forwarded us this screen shot of the original EBAY ad when Big Twin was offered for sale a few years ago. Long road from this to how it is today! Interesting comments since much of it is wrong....in particular they spelled Tom's name wrong and HD did not build the engines special for this. AEE machined it in house.

AEE Choppers famous purple Shovelhead....replica under construction

A friend of AEE named John Kelly is currently working on an exact replica of the famous Shovelhead. He also now owns the AEE Kit Bike replica and will be completing the build on it too!
He is quite precise and has gone to painstaking lengths to get this right. Check out that springer, its perfect. He has some original AEE parts in place including the very rare wing tank (its a real one) and our reverse rib rear fender. We will follow along as the build progresses to completion......
