    Robbie,
    Do you have the part number, or a description, for the spacers you mention? I don't see any spacers in my parts books.

    Use the pressure recommended by the tire manufacturer. Those low pressures listed in riders manuals are completely off base for modern tires.

    IIRC, we had one of those on the floor. Most customers found the paint scheme kinda ugly. We eventually sold the bike to Pete Heinz, former chief judge.

    28* frame

    I have a 28 degree frame I'd like to use a wide glide on. I'm aware this frame should have a springer, but I don't have any to spare. How goofy would this combination handle? yea or nea?

    The new models were released in September. Did H-D customer service tell you they had no records for all of 66? I've had good luck getting build date info on a 65, 69, and a 73 from them.

    If you press it out, wouldn't you make the fit looser? Perhaps better to try to seal it from the inside?
