Hand Carved Classic Harley Davidson Shovel - by Master Carver Jeff Bryan - was $120 now $90 on sale!

The intricate carving on this piece has to be seen to be believed - all in a day's work for Jeff, our resident carver and Harley Davidson enthusiast.

The Shovel[head] engine was produced by Harley-Davidson from 1966 to 1984, to replace the Panhead engine. When the engine was first produced, the Shovel had a shallower combustion chamber, larger valve drop for both intake and exhaust, better porting, and stronger valves and pistons, giving it an extra 10 horsepower, along with a different appearance. Its nickname was gained from the look of the rocker heads the heads having the appearance of an old coal shovel that was flipped upside down. While the engine did have problems earlier in its timeline, the new and improved motor gave Harley-Davidson a 26% sales increase.

This unique taonga, which means treasure in Maori, is perfect to show your love of these classic engine formations and will be a wonderful addition to your home or office, or for someone you know and love who would appreciate this work of art.

This whakairo, Maori for carving, is just one of the many and varied carvings Jeff creates. He does commissions too, ask away.

Please note: these artworks are for sale in our store also and sometimes sell before we can remove them from trademe. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Remember we have many artworks by Jeff listed, and he frequently does commission work so it's possible he can create you a similar artwork - but to your exact specifications :-)
