    I learned the hard way that those little barrel ends on the throttle cables are loose on the cables. They are a bitch to find in the grass when you really want to ride.

    An Evo is not a real Sportster, it's a Sportster replica. :)

      I have both and worked on many more. Evo is a Sportster they should and could have built in the first place. HD were too cheap to use aluminum cylinders with iron lines, though they go back long before anyone reading this was born. They were too cheap to use aluminum cylinder heads on their street Sporties but XR engines got them. (Contemporary Triumph and BSA had them.) HD were too cheap to use a decent electric starter design (the linkage and solenoid arrangement to get the "outboard motor" starter they used is most of the problem). Ironheads were famous for cracking transmission cases around the speedo drive. They didn't NEED to drive it off the trans but built in a weakness because they didn't care. Norton had effective rubber mounts in the 1960s (Isolastic) and Commandos handle very well. (I've a '71 and a '74). Ironheads are good fun but Harley let them linger in production many years after it proved the aluminum top end XR 750 on the race track. That cost them sales and helped nearly tank the company.

    HAHAHA! Nothing like building stuff you like with friends. Getting Dodge stroker balance finished up. I am impressed with that lead , Shaft run out damn near on the money. This small block Dodge gonna eat some chevys up. I was rooting through shovel parts i got . I got a swing arm frame with round stock type swingarm. See what I can piece together. I gotta get my brother to help me set up a you tube site. I know how to do some complicated shit but unskilled via computers and internet. Can't get away with being a dinosaur these days. Beautiful bike tatro.
