    Default Thanks to this forum - and a few pics of the finished bike - 48 FL Pan

    Hi Guys

    I wanted to thank you for all the expert help offered over the last 2 years as this bike was raised from the grave.

    Special thanks go to;T. Cotten, 1950Panhead, Rubone, BigLakeBob, exeric, Chris Haynes, 41Craig and many more.

    The forum has been extremely important and your quick responses and expertise crucial to the finished bike. You will no doubt spot the non standard parts and my location in London has meant some repop parts as well as originals, but, for my first Harley, itís not too bad.

    Thanks again, Greg

    The 1948FL is my favorite post war H-D, and you did a great job on your '48, Greg. There will always be things to up-grade or change on any restored bike, but that is what keeps the love affair going My '48 is painted Flight Red, but I had second thoughts shortly after painting it. I think black looks great on your bike, Greg and I know that I'll be re-painting my bike black in the next few years. I had a good friend who was from South London and, as a child, was inspired to have an American Big Twin because of a London biker neighbor. I think it's essential for AMCA members to support, and help fellow members, so, congratulation.

    Beautiful bike, great work and effort on your part to restore to such an high standard. Don't sweat the little things like original parts, numbers or whatever; none of those things matter at all when you crack the throttle wide open and the smile spreads across your face....

    Great job Greg! Bike looks nice and an inspiration for me to finish my multi-year 48 EL project. Too many other bikes that all need some work. A nice dilemma and a first world problem. I'm, not really complaining

    Beautiful machine Greg ! Nice and simple as it came from the factory. Not all garbaged up with junk.

    Great looking bike Greg. 'And for my first Harley, it's not too bad', is an understatement. Beautiful, nicely done.
