    Default New Member and new Duo Glide owner in Tulsa, OK

    Good afternoon,

    Recently purchased a '64 Duo Glide after being out of the motorcycle hobby for 25+ years. My wife and I have been involved with vintage airplanes and cars for a number of years and looking forward to moving away from flying and back to road riding.

    Glad to have this club and forum, as I already have some questions and looking for advise.

    Welcome, Tim!

    Is that a seam I see between the muffler and the 'sharktail'?

    If they come off, I'd bet it runs better without them.

    (By my experience, anyway...)

    Yes, I've thought about that. Right now, trying to diagnose a potential oiling issue...

    Thank you for your welcome!

    Welcome Tim, Glad you came back to reality.
    A bit of that isn't '64 though....

    Thank you for the welcome, Robbie! I’m here to enjoy and learn along the way. I welcome any insight you’re willing to provide. Of the parts issues w/this back that are incorrect, I question the windshield, the primary should be painted and paint on the tanks is wrong. What else do you see?

    Welcome Tim, gee wiz, from flying vintage planes to bikes, how will you ever getting any enjoyment from riding old slow bikes you cannot barrel roll? Lol Enjoy your new bike and the club!
    Take care,

    Footboards, handlevers, regulator mounting position, ignition switch, seat, shifter cover missing, all pretty easy to deal with. Possibly more with more pictures.

    Thank you for your input, Robbie. If you don’t mind, I will private message you with pictures once I figure out the oil flow issue. I’d like to have the bike close to original, but maybe “accessorized” a little with pieces appropriate for the era.
