    Hello Everyone, I've lurked for a while. I've been riding a 6t Triumph for years now. I'm comfortable with Triumphs. I'm looking to get a 60's/70's Ironhead to do my own build. With older Ironheads that came stock with magnetos, can I run them without a magneto? I came across a good...

    My 73 year old father in law is about to undertake this project. Any advice, tips, tricks, or previous experience and suggestions greatly appreciated. He's a very experienced HD chopper builder, but he doesn't read very well so he asked me to "ask the internet" for him ;)

    New to HD- i have been on a 93 Nighthawk but bought a well kept Sporty this winter. I know little about working on bikes, so call me a 2 out of 10 on mechanics. I had to do precious little to maintain the Nighthawk- never needed to do much. I am looking to learn, but forgive the noob questions.
