I chose a special old harley for deeper feelings of the old US..and I think it was the right thing to do, though tough.

I just added Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It sure is great to live in BIG countries! Russia must have lots of great riding!
Now I'm taking all around frame off, changing bearings, seals and cleaning...
Installed 200w RM stator... wanted to buy BD stator very much, but they said that they are rewinding old ones only..
I Also bought used full XR's only exhaust on ebay for good price, wrapped it .
Insulated the tank for better airflow and to prevent overheating..
Installed BRP submount
I was rebuilding the shocks for several days and had to face a problem that'd never come up before. It was a rusted slider in the fork...only after drilling through the slider i could take off the tube from leg.. neither the air heater nor my heavy kicks could do it..
I also bought new neo covers , Has anybody used it!? how long may it work!?
Each fork had 350cc oil.. I guess this is not right,?! because according to the manual i filled them with 640cc each...
