Zenith/Bendix is still open in VA. Call for a dealer to get the part. I think the whole new carb is less than $200.

WTB. Hens teeth, rocking horse crap, or C ratio clutch gear & 4th gear for pre-70 900. Andrews or HD. Or anyone willing to do the DR DICK mod on the later gears and sell them.

Harry, I can't remember which one was used in the "C" ratio. Here, I'm guessing that's what you mean and not just a "close" ratio setup.
I am pretty sure I have an 18 and a 20 clutch gear, would have to look to see if I have the C/S gears as well.
I presume your going to race this as these aren't really good ratios for stock street bikes.
And the 20 is probably only good for places like Daytona.

Yep, close ratio.

No racing, unless I misunderstood which gears need to be changed, I only hear good things about the C ratio 4th for street use.

Please correct me, my wallet is crying in the corner.

Default WTB: 72-E73 heads, bare or complete.

Looking for a pair of 72-E73 heads, complete or not, but no broke fins or crazy home "porting" jobs. Bonus points if you're within a few hours of Portland OR. Let me know what ya have!

Default WTB rear section of older frame

looking for rear section of a 1978 or earlier frame (1972 or earlier frame that used the steel casting would be my favorite) I want just the rear section that was replaced during hardtailing ... OR .... the entire frame ONLY if the neck area is damaged, ( i don't want to cut up a perfect old frame, if the neck area is bent, that is fine ) it needs to be straight and undamaged ... I'm going to use it on a later model ironhead, replacing the 79 on style rear section ....

Default 79 frame

retro fittin this frame ,REALLY? WTH you been smokin.. the 57-078[ casted fender strut mounts til70] had a RECALL on em,they werent rigid enough,this is asinine.I think mid 73[?] up the frames came with the kit factory welded in.either change the frame completely ,then motor mounts etc change too or hard tail it from DAVID BIRD, the best of the best, via Lowbrow.No offense but you are either a newbie or someone that has no mechanical common sense and should stay away from even the vacuum cleaner.....

that is factually incorrect. the cast component of the frames ceased in 1972 and there wasn't a recall. the 73 early 74 frame weren't cast they were bent metal fender strut mounting ears. They alone suffered a problem with bending. A brace kit was installed by dealers which required welding. I did several in the spring and summer of 1974. commencing mid 74 the factory did like wise with all new bikes. the bending didn't occur on any 57-72 frame because the strut ears and seat mounting piece (for the old solo spring mount OEM seats) was a single casting.
