Got Bored

Well, I got my heads and cylinders for my 49' back from the machine shop. Had them bored over just a tad. Also had the heads reworked. New valves/valve job and the guides reamed for the larger stems. New S&S forged pistons. Next, I have to pull the oil pump and seat the gasket properly. I don't want the amount of leakage that I had last year. I was kickin' around the possibility of a new springer front end this year, but I may have to wait until next season to afford that.

In case your wondering what kind of bike it is, it's a fode. It's one I can afode.

Fix the oil pump gasket??.... but wouldn't that get rid of the trade mark Harley oil spot? How could you even think of ruining a classic bike like that Oh well... I'm sure even with a new gasket it will leak somewhere.

Theres a difference between a classic harley leak and being the exxon valdeez

Sounds cool Slo, mine is getting something simular




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

You're so helpful.


I can't wait to see the bike, Chuck.... even more so I can't wait to hear it rumble.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
