    A number of years ago, a friend in California sent me pictures of a CB450 he built, and painted red. They were never painted red in the early days as all of them were black. I never forgot how good...

    I love knucleheads and owned a '37, and a '41. I had fun with them, but a fair share of misery as well, which all motorcycles are prone to give. Chip, I can only say that you should go for your...

    I took Robbie, and Sarge’s advice and layed the motor on it’s side, and placed the frame over it. That really did make a lot more sense. I wrapped the frame tubes with old bicycle inner tubes to...

    Thanks for the 4 cylinder insight, Steve. I figured a 4 cylinder install would be a tricky process and quite advanced for a Honda neophyte like me. The more I look at this, the more I am...

    Hate, and love applies to everyone. Choose the life you want to live. I love old motorcycles and that makes me happy, and makes me reject victim mentality.

    I recently had to rework the front fender on my Honda 450. It turned out to be just as much of a headache as any Harley, Henderson, Excelsior, or Indian. The big problem is the fit of the wheel/tire,...

    The cork gaskets are .125" thick. As Tom said, the cork gasket is a composite and I don't know if they would hold up to modern fuel.

    The H-D packaged originals I have are cork. They seem to be to dried out to be usable, but I've heard you can boil them to make them usable.

    Those look great, Dan. You didn't mention what year Excelsior you were working on so I assumed it was a pre-1911 that used the wood sheave, and brackets. Whoever made them for you did a beautiful job.
