Re: Are pre-units still allowed?

What is the stockish bike? And might you have a side shot of the other one that you could throw up here?

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

French Owl? Patrick, you there?

In the image in your post #842 above, what does "culbuteurs" mean in this context? Google Translate comes up with "rockers," which sounds promising but not that...

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

Is that a quarter-mile track? Seems even shorter. And are all three bikes Vincent powered? Never got a good look at the bike bringing up the rear. I mean, at its engine.

Re: 1940 knucklehead

Real fine looking motorbike, that.

Where do those apes put your hands, relative to your shoulders? Are you a tall fella? I don't think I could live with them, but creeping old age has dwindled me...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Shock and spring look a whole lot better with a lick a paint on them. It's nice overall, man. I slightly feared that all the brass might give the bike a too-much-doodads look, but they come out good...

Re: 58 Pan Newbie

You're going to know quite a bit about panheads when you've finished rehabilitating that bike. Thanks for showing it to us, and please update as you proceed.

Re: Flyrite Choppers 7 Deadly Sins - Rebuild

That seems a much nicer than usual front end. Is it a one-off, or storebought?

Pretty swell bike in every respect, far as I can see. Thanks for showing us.

Re: Bicycle brakes on choppers

Maybe there's enough constant bounce and shake down by the brake that the brake fluid would cavitate in a reservoir located there.

Re: New (Old) Member.

That's a real goodlooking pan. Thanks for showin' us.

When you get tired of black panheads, it's time to shoot yourself.

Gah. BMWs do seem to suffer the worst from domestic (garage) violence.

Re: saddles

A leather-goods guy once told me: "There is no such thing as waterproof leather."

That said, I find Sno-Seal to be the best of many would-be waterproofers I've tried.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

I hope this isn't such an off-the-wall non sequitur as to irritate anybody. It just seemed so odd I couldn't let it pass. Will gladly take this post down if it gets on Mike's nerves or anyone else's....
