Default New Fella From MN

As I've leaned more and more into chopular culture I find myself perusing this forum more often figure I better join! Been putting together old Harleys for a few years now... Live in the cities area, decent place to ride an old bike. Traffic moves pretty good, especially these days.

Here's a few pictures.

27J, 48 WL, 48-65 Pan (waiting for motor...) depending on what you're looking at.

Edit: Was mistakenly banned so I pulled my pictures from the hosting site. I've relinked the pictures below and added some info.



27J I built one piece at a time. Has a sort of fancy Cam and two cam towers. Sealed bearings everwhere... Schebler carb makes me want to pull my hair out but I'm committed to it at this point...

I had a gas line leak right onto the magneto and it set itself on fire one day... Luckily a buddy had a fire extinguisher.



The 45 I bought as a basket case. Came with some great trim and nice old flanders... Probably the best bike in the world to ride. You can't hurt it no matter how hard you try!




Currently working on resurrecting this Pan. Early 54 Frame. 49 Trans. 49 Glide Front End (I thought I was going the springer route unite I bolted it up, it's better). 19" VL Rims. Beat up hand shift tanks and some other crap. Waiting on the motor to come back to me and it's go time.



Thanks for letting me in. Have a good one!

Nice bikes, especially the pan. Welcome.

Posting for HD48FL - I'm not a spammer I think, I have never even tried it. Some folks say it tastes like ham...
