Default A Limey with a UL

Hello folks. It's my first post so here goes.
The name is Andy and I live in central England. ( Sounds like the start of an AA meeting! ) I've had a few Harleys over the years couple of 45s, couple of pans, a generator shovel couple of evos. This is the latest, a 1945 UL.
I picked it up on Christmas eve 2010. Transmission was shot, the tank liner was flaking off and everything else was out of adjustment so I fixed it, painted it and changed a few things. It's strictly bolt on stuff . No grinders or hacksaws were used in the construction of this vehicle !

I've still got to do something with the exhaust system. I hate blue mufflers.
( and before anyone asks, nope the inlet manifold isn't leaking )

Thanks for that, I've emailed him so we'll see what happens.
No I didn't go to the Linkert last year. I wanted to but things go in the way.

To 49 flat. It's a 74. If I had enough money I'd like some 80 in cylinders and carb. Maybe one day!
