Shovelheads remain a mainstay for Chopper Builders and BDL’s new SHS-600 belt drive conversion provides extended life, strength, smooth operation and reliability to these traditional drivelines. Designated as BDL part number SHS-600, it is a complete “Shovel Shorty” Electric Start drive kit. The unique drive features a billet  rear plate that covers the trans drive while providing support for the clutch basket assembly. Each kit is supplied with front and rear pulleys, BDL’s Kevlar clutch and a 2”, 140 tooth belt. The rear plate/support is made up of the plate, BDL’s mini starter housing, pinion gear and starter ring gear guard. Benefits of this unique drive system to the Shovelhead driveline are obvious and substantial.   And with a retail price of just $1000.84 it’s a package every Shovelhead rider should consider.
