Looks fantastic, Tom!

I always wondered why the older bikes (for example, my 1972 Honda CB500) used spoked wheels when the technology existed for "mag" wheels...SO much more reliable, no issues with needing to be trued from time to time, easier to balance, that sort of stuff.

BTW....I still own the Honda and other than having to change out the factory 4-muffler exhaust for a set of Hookers it is very much in factory original condition. Someday I will spend way more than it is worth to restore it to usable condition (as long as the engine isn't frozen up it won't take much, a clutch cable, brakes rebuilt, new chain and sprockets), unless I sell it to satisfy a bad case of GAS.... ???

Big V-twins are fun!  Carry on!!!

Cheers!

A little fuel oil and oil mixed and sprayed in cylinders  will keep it from freezing for years. or even straight oil. thats what I do to my pressure washer that only gets used every few years.     Tom.   :)  P.S.   Smokes like crazy when started though.  LOL.

My Sportster, 95, 1200XL Sport,  It had the Evo, Stage one air and jetted, Running generic shortie drag pipes straight.Progressive  11.5 shocks lowered two inches from 13.5, and a Harley Davidson Solo saddle, switched back and forth with the two up as needed. When it sat still it sounded like it was going to die it was so cammed, and dang near would shake its self down the road like a old style electric foot ball game. All chrome of course, man I never got my money back out of it but it was a wild ride.  Red with the black sport mags. it looked like new.  I had to trade it or I could not afford to get my Fat Boy. I love this counter balanced motor, so smooth and I love to slow roll the throttle and feel it pull, only a big twin can really give that torque and tone. I have had my share of Jap bikes when I was younger, from KZ1100 to strait Yamaha 550 bullet screamers, to the Honda sport. Now I am older and out of debt, I can Afford a Harley.  Cant wait to see your pic's.   Tom.   :) The guy I bought it from,   Did not no what cam it had been changed to.   :)
