    I think there should be another front bar that clamps to the front tube of the SC, and then clamps to the lower front part of the motorcycle frame. Most every sidecar uses 3 mounts, with one being a...

    I think you are correct that it is an Indian sidecar frame. The front mount looks like it would mate to a 1917, and later Indian PowerPlus frame that had the front lug under the steering head. Looks...

    I had a sidecar on my 1951FL. A sidecar is hell on almost every part of a motorcycle, but also fun and that is the trade off. H-D spokes, and nipples are quite stout so I don't know if there is a...

    I believe your motor is a 1917 based on the s.n. and the cylinder castings. It was used in the Excelsior Big X which was the standard motor. Excelsior also offered a 2 stroke single, and the rare Big...

    Good advice. I don't glass bead any motor parts, and particularly aluminum castings. I clean castings in our laundry sink and use anything from TSP, Comet, Dawn, scrub brushes, scouring pads, and...

    Those are some of the most beautiful early motors, Dick. Your Mar-Tan would be look great in a tri-car, similar to a Morgan. I have a friend in Europe that has done that with JAP motors he has found....

    Just my opinion, but I think a complete, and genuine 1949 Glide fork would be equal in value to an offset spring fork, possibly more. Curious what others think of that.

    H-D was always committed to a new model year, particularly if there was a major change like there was from '48 to the new Hydra-Glide of '49. They didn't carry over fenders, tanks, frames, or trim...

    I can't be of any help, John, but I love that bike. Italians have always had a brilliant sense of style, and design in every field of art, and engineering. Best of luck.

    I love the early Hydra-Glides, but correct content is everything these days. Sounds like a great collection of parts, with value, but the next owner will probably want it to be ALL 1952. That takes...

    Your 1912 Harley is stunning, Philippe, and I admire the careful work you did to keep it so genuine. In regards to your Schebler; could it be as simple as the gasket between the bowl stem, and bowl ?

    You could also look at the quality of the detent spring, and ball. I've seen badly rusted balls, and weak spings cause problems. You've probably already done that, but just a suggestion.

    You're right about those points, Kozy, and that would be right for an early fork, but they still look too straight. Maybe it got bumped.
