Shovelhead Drag Bike

Digging a little deeper through a box of old photos.
Valley Machine Drag bike build, early '80's. HD cases massaged for lightened, balanced flywheels, for stroked big bore rods and pistons, 120ci. S&S chrome moly steel barrels, Paul Hannan prepped big valve (Manley valves & springs) HD heads, cam was either a Sifton or Andrews, S&S Super E carb setup for alcohol. Was sold to Hanns (old H&K Cycles, Livermore) and Hanns raced it, but don't know what kind of "times" it was turning or if it was completely sorted. When Hanns sold the shop the bike changed owners and may have ended up at a shop somewhere in the Sierra foothills.
