    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.

    It's not just a safety issue. Most States have a mandatory headlight law for motorcycles. I've been pulled over for an absent head, or tail light in the past. I've never been ticketed, as most cops...

    I'm not talking about 32E, or Autolite generators, which are pretty good by today's standards. My Hendersons used the extremely rare General Electric generator (which I have) but they are heavy, and...

    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.

    I'm thinking along the same lines as Lipdog for a few of my early bikes that I may want to ride on the road. Early generators were barely adequate in their day, and very difficult, and expensive to...

    Looks like a later inline 'straight' fork and not the kicked forward rigid fork which would have been on a '37.

    Like Tom said, I think the sprocket needs full engagement on the SDG, and I suspect that is where the problem is. Maybe there is a burr on the sprocket, or a wear pattern on the SDG splines that is...

    The cross-over lines I've bought from Old Dude have the strain relief circle more in the center, and that is what you see in the H-D Spare Parts book.

    If your cross over line is cad plated, you should be able to work it to fit. If it's chrome, it probably won't work. At worst, you could bend your own line from copper tubing, and use the fittings...
