Re: 74 74 74 A Shovelhead Build

Speaking of women, there are two philosophies you can embrace. "Life's too short to dance with ugly women." or "Life's too short not to dance with ugly women."

Re: Help ID these pan parts please

Gas tanks (left one anyway) is later than '65. Those had the fuel shutoff/reserve on top in front of the gas cap. '66 (I think) had a 3/8" pipe female petcock bung at the bottom front of the tank,...

Re: 74 74 74 A Shovelhead Build

Seems to follow my old philosophy concerning the three magic words that will get you laid every time: "Lower your standards." (you have to whisper these in your own ear.)

Re: 41mm Wideglide Axle spacer dims

Not enough information. It would help to know what year forks, or at least the range. Drum or disc forks? American made or Showa? what kind of a wheel are you running? Are you using a brake, and if...

Re: What could be cause these grooves on a break disc

The second rotor seems to be the same brand as the first. Could you be cheaping out on rotors? Fab Kevin did a tech piece in "The Horse" sometime back about drilling your own rotors, and one of the...

Re: Butts Mfg

Re: 39 flathead ground cable

The ground on my '37 U was to a clip on the return oil line. It seemed like a strange place to me, but looking in Palmer's book I see the clip on several other pre war big twins. The clearest...

Re: Black or chrome

Chrome won't get you home but shiny might get you some hiney. It's a short biker poem.

I sure miss the days when chrome was cheap. When I first started modifying bikes (mid to late '60's) there...

Re: Has This Ever Happened To You?

I got my first Harley in 1967. My buddy wanted me to take him over to see his girlfriend, and told me he'd introduce me to her sister. (this was before people worried about 2 guys on a bike looking...

Re: 33.4 mm fork cover question

More Brooks Stevens, the 1949 Hydraglide fork. The tins, the big headlight bucket, the cowbells and the tapered fork legs. Fender too.

Re: 33.4 mm fork cover question

I've got that covered. literally. I have a metal refrigerator magnet, a miniature version of the '47-'50 ball and streamer tank emblem, that covers the word "Sportster" perfectly. It's my favorite...

33.4 mm fork cover question

You guys were really helpful with Shaft's 33.4 mm K model tree question, maybe you can help me with this one too.

Re: Best internal throttle setup??

The easiest way would be to acquire one of these, HD part # 56090-53. They're hard to find, but not impossible. It's probably easier to get one from an old HD handlebar. These go into the bar about...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

That is a pretty cool home made springer. I think I would run it with the rockers flipped the other way, so that all the stress of the weight of the bike and hitting bumps and potholes isn't just in...

Re: Tank coating removal

The cement mixer is interesting. Another way is to wrap it in blankets so it can't move and put it in the clothes dryer on a no-heat cycle of some kind. I've got an old dryer in the basement that...
