    Default 1961 Pan Head hardware

    Can anyone tell me the preferred method of restoring hardware such as case bolts, axles and nuts, bracket hardware etc.

    Also, can you recommend the best manual for restoring to the most accurate cosmetically.

    Thanks in advance,
    Wes M

    Wes!

    From what I can tell from responses on this forum: http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/bbo...157#post166157..
    It just has to look good.

    So you are the final judge, as it should be.

    As far as a "manual", most of us (concerned with H-Ds) consult Palmer's first.

    Good luck!

    Restore or refinish? Parkerizing and Cadmium plating put new finishes on old hardware.

    You can easily do your Parkerizing ay home. Parkerizing chemical can be purchased on eBay.
