I put this one together about 25 years ago from parts that I had laying around. Sold it about 15 years ago. Got it back.

Your'e eyes aint going bad. I took the pictures witha cell phone. I don't know why they are so blurry.

I live just outside of Flint.

I'm going to put a stock length springer on it, with a 16" wheel, a set of original bars, other than that I am not sure yet. I also got 2 Goulding side-cars with the deal. Not sure what to do with the cars yet either.

Sell the sidecars and don't do a thing to the bike, just get on and ride!

Man, the gas in this thing is rotten. I've never seen gas turn black like this stinky shit is. The tanks have some rust in them. I had to use air pressure in the fuel line to get the stuff to flow. Going to be a mess getting the tanks and carb cleaned out.
The carb is a M641. I'm thinking it should have an M51.

I wish I could talk someone into trading me a U like that for my 93" , 5 speed FL Shovel!!

Rad scoot man.....Knuckles are cool and all but I'd really rather have a BTSV...

Justen...I see that you are from Wis. Do you ever get to the Appelton HD shop? I sold the guy that owns it my 41 Indian 4 cylinder and a few other HDs.

I collected them for 40 years. Had 22 at one time. Health went to hell. Sold a 65 Pan, 51 Pan, 69 Shovel, 47 Knuckle to some guys from your area. They were all friends of Terry at the Dealership. Most have kept in touch, all are happy with the bikes.

Big Time congratulations for you and Nice friggin build, the way it used to be and for some of us it still is!!! I have tried to find some of my old builds from back in the day, with no luck. I must be old the pictures looked normal to me. A little blurry but what isn't these days.

I've only got 4 bikes right now....31 years old now, but know there shall be many more and plan to keep whatever I can.

Love the build of the UL-absolutely a timeless everyday bike. All of mine are a bit different, different purposes I guess. I guess these stories are all relateable to us in some degree. I'll keep an eye on this thread and any of your other stuff. Take care-

Justen
