Almost done with my 9 year restoration of a chopper basket case. She has a 1942 left side case, 1945 right side, 42 trans, 48 frame and the rest is all repo parts. I did get as much NOS hardware as I could find. This was a $2,000 mixed bag basket case I won off ebay. It had a raked frame, extended forks the engine and trans totally apart and came with not one nut or bolt. I was able to sell off the frame and front end and miss matched tanks and acquire some nicer pieces. I did every bit of work on it myself. Rebuilt the engine and trans and polished and painted everything. Ill be hopefully firing her up on Thanksgiving !!

Some times they load for me and others not. I tried several op systems with all having the same results at the same time. I hesitate to ask S&S for any support that might cost them anything with our activity being so low.

Beautimous, Leo!

Beautimous...

(It reminds me of a black-cherry "civvy'd" WLC I did, many years ago.)
