Re: Panhead Throttle Cable Clamps '48 and '49-'53

Push style controls like OEM have been available forever. Just adapting stock units is easy. Not sure what your issue is unless you want some kind of "cool kid" one off stuff.

Re: This is the designated "how much is it worth" thread.....

Lots of factors to consider.
Number one is the VIN and number boss. Must be original and not tampered with. What is it like?

Re: Knuckle/Shovel

Re: 1970 ElectraGlide Front End

Re: scored a russian denpr today

Lots have been converted to BMW powerplants, although at that price by the time it is done it is more than the rig is worth. Parts are easier to find in Europe than the US.

Re: 1965 FLH motor leaks question

Check the crankcase breather, make sure it is unobstructed. If someone put a filter on it throw that away. The pump provides more volume, but not more pressure..
