It's impossible
 
to remember everything you've done

Case in point: The regulator clamps for the '75
won't line up their bolt holes with the regulator bolt holes

After much walkin' back and forth between the
'74 (which has a perfect regulator/clamp mounting
setup) and the '75
and lotsa bending of a clamp (I even dragged
out my '76 frame for a bare form to work on -
What?
Doesn't everybody have a parts bike to
keep their two antiques runnin'?)
I now believe the clamp ain't big enough

The giggle is I initially bought (when I started this dropbar thing)
a larger clamp size (on a guess) and exchanged it
for this size

Well - tomorrow it's back to the hardware store
to get two clamps the next size up

Wonder if they will be the ones I returned
for the ones I been strugglin' with

So tomorrow while the world is
goin' nuts over the new president
I think my gig might just start comin'
together better


The more I see people try to interact
with each other the more I appreciate
interacting
with some hand tools and
an ancient piece of rolling sculpture

Yeah, like anyone else could get this

Nick, why do you have the same thing posted twice?

Oh, hi Mr. Pierce
This version was missin' a line near the beginning and I just winged the correction and that's what happened

Just workin' with situations as they happen, ya know


Okay, Nick
Carry on


Right, old P.

Nick, I still own the can of Drydene water pump grease I used to rebuild the shaft drive unit on my 48 Nash. You don't need it for a Harley of course, but I hear they still have some vintage iron in the Philippines. I might could spare you some if you need it. They don't make it anymore.
