The bike is only a small part of it. We both are about 15-17 year old...LOL

I can't wait to do the first ride together. Hurry home Willy.

As a side note, this will give me time to get my carb tuned back up. The accelerator pump shit the bed.

The real truth is he fired it up and couldn't stand it......I know he rode it for a minute or two. I know this because of 2 reasons.
1. It's what I would do.
2. He admitted it finally. (but he wont tell me how far he actually rode)

Anything you build should put a smile on your face, but 50 years that's a grin ear to ear. Cheer's!!!

I'm in Oregon visiting family over Labor Day weekend, and my right leg is sore from all that kicking I've been doing over the last couple of days....
Gonna have to learn how to kick it over with my left also so I can take turns...
I pulled my old GoPro out and charged it up, will get a vid done when I get back home....

Got some miles on the bike, about 40 total, no vid unfortunately, my iphone camera not working right...

Some tuning, got it running quite well, and parked it at home next to my 2010 Dyna...


Posted more pix HERE....

Thanks guys,
The bike is running quite nicely, but having some throttle wide open cut outs, think it is just that the carb is open ended, air flowing past that open carb goes vacuum, and a good filter can will fix that, but......
Meanwhile I cut away the rear cylinder exhaust wrap the kicker was tearing apart....

And need to pull off the front valve cover and put a new gasket on, it's leaking oil down on to the exhaust pipe....
(Not unusual with these old harleys....)
And, yeah, if you look closely, you will see some "ball peen hammer" work to get clearance for the kicker....
There's a vid of "Starting IT Up" floating around out there, if I can find it I'll post it....
And, yeah, at age 75, I find that I'm still having a heck of a lot of fun doing this....
Aloha,
Willy

The other problem I ran into was that the throttle on the handlebar was loose, even with screws tightened up all the way, have run into that before, so I tapped and put a 10-24 allen head bolt under the relief in the throttle clamp, it will not pull off any more....

The front brake mc clamp was also loose, tightened it down, it is good to go....

Now I'm dealing with the local bureaucracy to get this bike licensed for the street. It was previously licensed in it's present form from 1969 to 1989, but they seem to be wanting to apply new rules, so let's see where this leads....
