IronWorks is always looking for new talent in the custom bike building world. If they’re good and we like their work we like to try to showcase their work. If its outstanding and hasn’t been featured anywhere else there’s a good chance it will wind up in the print magazine. But if the bike has already been published somewhere else and we still like it or the builder, we will show it here on IWBlogger using completely different images than what were used in the original article.
Such is the case of Kenny Davanzo‘s green 1949 Panhead which he built over this past winter at Hazardous Cycles in Taylor, Michigan. Kenny used the original crank and rods when he completely redid the original ‘49 motor. He added 10:1 Wisco pistons and a Joe Hunt magneto during the rebuild. A BDL belt drive supplies power to the 1952 transmission that has had Andrews gears installed. The original star hub is laced to a DNA front 21 inch rim with American diamond cut spokes. Kenny also retained the drum brake. While trying to not over due the custom work on the original wishbone frame. Kenny did kick the rake out to 30 degrees. All in all we think it’s a great looking bike and we hope you agree.
