    Sorry, that was a weird reply on my part:) To address your question, Craig; I think H-D was just covering the bases for many eventualities, and for the benefit of the end users. I do see the validity...

    Looking closer at the 1st photo, I can see that the header pipe has the same radius as the front frame tube. Look forward to hearing more from the Sporleder archives. Hope that works out, Dick.

    Looks like 2 header pipes out of a single cylinder head. I agree that the handlebars are U-joint Indian bars and probably Indian forks, and the tank looks Indian. That is a noodle scratcher, Dick.

    I've never seen bushings in a motorcycle piston. Either I've led a sheltered life, or it's not done:) . . . Why? I'd be curious to know as well.

    I used Haulbikes in late October of 2018 and was happy with them. The price was very good, the bike was delivered quickly (probably luck), and in good shape. It was not a pristine bike so I didn't...

    This has been a very interesting thread for me, as I'm not a good mechanic, or diagnostician. I feel bad for what you're going through, Harry but I'm learning a lot. I know you'll get there.

    C2K, I can't stress enough how informative Don Emde's book is, and how enjoyable it is to read. As for domestic competition in 1901, there was Orient, and DeDion based cycles used most exclusively...

    Anything written by Harry Sucher must be subject to peer review; which he didn't always seek. George Hendee made the Indian bicycle before he and Oscar Hedstrom developed their motorcycle. All of...

    I thought the same as well, Robbie. Probably why it's broken. Anything can be fixed, but looking for a replacement would save a lot of grief.

    Tom gives excellent advice; look for a good replacement first. Fixing the one you have requires first class welding, and machining. However, there is 2/3 of the hole left, so you may be able to do...

    Harley tanks are, by far the easiest tanks to repair because they are well formed, heavy gauge, and can be welded, or brazed. The back panels can be removed by carefully grinding the weld seams thus...

    As much as you ride your Chief, I know you will find the problem soon, Harry. It's the bikes that don't get out much that are so difficult to diagnose.
