Re: sportster ridgid frame ID

Respectfully, Kevin, I think that looks nothing at all like a Wayne. The only similarity there is the single downtube. Mounts are way off, IMO.

Re: 54 or 55 Panhead Identification

And can you get in there and flip the hinged part of the fender up? That light mounts differently, I think. Be a hell of a coinky-dink to have a true 1955 if it had a wishbone frame and '54...

Re: 54 or 55 Panhead Identification

Casting hallmark, and that's likely correct. Motor Castings Company, I think?

Re: Simple Shovelhead Wiring Diagram Needed

I usually run a stator and alternator. :D

Re: BDL Belt Alignment

I hate those adjusters, personally.

Re: Simple Shovelhead Wiring Diagram Needed

I think John gives good advice and do as he says; I run an Evo charging system on all my Shovels.

That said, 32A for a chopper or stripped-down bike is complete overkill. If you do this, burn the...

Re: Timing plug - One of those days

Pressurizing the cases like that is good thinkin' and not hard to do.

Re: One more Triumph Build

Wisdom, IMO.

I think a lot of dudes forget the history of choppers: make the bike a little lighter and a little faster and get it back together ASAP to keep chasing pussy, booze, and dope.

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

You know what works real fuckin' good on a Harley chopper?

A drum brake.

If the olds won't be the hard-line traditionalists, then I'll step up and take that on these broad shoulders. Fredo,...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Fredo, do you have any interest in making that mechanical rear work correctly? 'Cause to me, that's the easiest and cheapest.

And they work fine if they're not all fucked up.

Re: A quality Bates-type headlight

I use a Paughco on my Shovel. Seems solid enough.

Re: Shovelhead cams

Yeah, I suppose that's true. I guess I was just thinking that unlike a V8, you'd sort of have to assemble, degree, remove, move gear, reinstall, and recheck.

Not that much work if you're not in a...

Re: Shovelhead cams

That's slick; never thought of using something like the lash check pins for degreeing.

The only thing that sucks is you never actually know what "heads up" is for a cam unless you have some others...

Re: A lifetime project

A Phillips head and a flathead screw on the same points cover?

You're a monster.

Good work. Bike has some real neat bits on it. That hub looks like a ton of work.

Re: Shovelhead cams

What kind of results have you seen when degreein' 'em, John? Pretty close to true heads-up, or are they off?

Just curious. I know it's a matter to consider when swappin' cam gears.

Re: shovelhead clutch

Two does the job, and in the modern world, broader coverage with fewer SKUs usually yields surprising savings at scale.

Re: Shovelhead cams

You're saying the LSA is too narrow in those? I would think detonation would mostly be a CR issue, and I would also think hi-alky gas would keep ping at bay, not encourage it.

I just always...

Re: Shovelhead cams

A&J are my go-to grinds for stock-ish street Shovels equipped with solids and should be similar to your F, IMO.
