    Steve, I like the smoothness, and quiet of belts, but I have never had a primary chain shed it's links when I'm accelerating on to a highway. Just my 2 cents; I'll never go back to a belt.

    Sounds like great projects, Rich. I'm prejudiced, but I think Js, JDs, and JDHs are the most interesting, and beautiful Harleys. I don't believe H-D ever surpassed the quality of material, and...

    This thread brings up an interesting question. Did Harley-Davidson make their own spokes, or did they have a vendor? In the early days of motorcycle manufacturing, most manufacturers got their spokes...

    Sorry I didn't answer sooner. A Super X without front brake used 9.50" spokes in the front, and 9.56" spokes in the rear. This is according to an original parts book I have.

    Selling may not be fun, but at least give it a half-assed effort, 'digging4treasure. Teaser posts like this are bad for the hobby.

    I like the '24JD, but that sidecar doesn't do it any favors. The bike has most all the hard to find '24 bits, although the restoration leaves a lot to be desired. If someone is looking for a good...

    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...

    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.

    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.
