I loved them on my 65 Dominator and I still love them on my current airhead.

Was the later motor THAT much nicer? I don't know the difference between them.

Just got this through from my RS's new owner. He picked the bike up yesterday and then road it straight down through France. It's his first RS and just shows what they were built for.

Shame about the rocker box gasket leaking I should have explained the charging light as well. He's a really nice guy, Glad the bikes gone to a good home.

Bonjour Rob.

I made it back with no prob. Needle on 90 most of the time and I sliced through the French highways like a knife in fresh butter!
A few issue still:
- My boots are all shiny courtesy of a rare option you omitted to mention… The shoe oiler!
Small leaks from the head cover gaskets I presume. Do I need to tighten more the cover or…?
- A red warning light when idling. Even after 8 hours at 5500/6000 rpm the light was still on. It stops just above 800 rpm ??

Other than that,nada. It’s an amazing job you did on this bike, it grow on you each mile, and the mid range power and sound is very rewarding! Congrats and many thanks

Fred

This bike need rear sets .... To keep shoes away from head gaskets.

Nice to hear a new owner enjoying the bike
