i have several old bikes, these are riders, not perfect restorations and are not meant to be. when i did my 47 indian i put the correct throttle cable you know one of those %$#@* lawn mower hard wire cables. on my knuck project i am using a soft cable and return spring like late model bikes use. i have ridden my indian in group rides, toy runs and the like. it seems the throttle is either too open or not open enough trying to maintain space between other bikes when riding with a crowd. i am thinking on going the soft cable and spring route from now on for easier throttle control. has any one else given this much thought?
