    Electric starter for my 80 incher

    Does anyone out there have an electric starter on their Chief? I'm wondering if they stand up to a high compression 80" motor with Bonneville Cams. I'm getting to old to keep kicking this beast over.

    So you take your bike to get judged and find out you've chromed a part that was to be Zink or Cad plated. Has anyone put together a list for plating and finish for the VL?

    I've ordered new springs for my 34 from Harbor Vintage but haven't received them yet so I can't state as to the quality. A lot of oil pumps are out there running with broken springs.
