Spotted an add for info wanted on 45 flathead stuff . So I helped the guy out more than replying yup got one by lending him my brake and shifter linkage to copy and informing the guy on what he had and needed to know..
The dude is 65 and used to ride . he has logged 40 years on 2 wheels now all he wants is to put around the block on a 42 wlc similar to his first bike. and just tinker .
Cool guy machinist by trade retired now but holy cow the guy builds steam engines how cool is that he built a tractor that pulls 2000 pounds and it fits in the back seat of a dodge neon . just so you get the idea . anyways he seen my bikes with all the farkle on them and asked if I wanted some old saddle bags he was going to throw out . so when he came by the other day he brought over a kidney belt and 2 late 50 to 53 panhead saddle bags.
all it takes is sitting back helping people out and being in the valley were all the goods hide and letting it come to you.
