Thanks for the help I have placed a few photos of my 74XLCH which are on page 3 now. Owned this bike 30 years and have made a few changes. Just finished painting the gas tank and installed the cobra seat.

It was probably before you owned it Bruc.

Butt yes, that is one shiny bike.

Another factor that would help, but does not exist: heavier flywheels.
My 100 lb. sister could start my 74" panhead by just standing on the kicker, but could not stroke through my 750cc Bonneville.

Mine WAS......for about an hour after I bought new in 1977......I found that the crooks don't steal ratty looking things nearly as often a nice pretty shiny things..

He could drain whatever straight weight grease he's running in the engine and repace it with 15-50 Mobil-1 or 20-50 GTX

Also, check with your Sports Physio. You might need to change your program.

Increase the reps or the weight on the leg press.
