Hi Mark, I think maybe he means his bike isn’t worthy of the good quality of the parts you have, but it does get funny when you’re angry.
......Davi.

I know exactly what he means, he spelled it out in his email to me.


I was not angry, just stating the facts.

Mod H's dont send to Switzerland.

Ok I found a scrambler pipe I will recieved from Ebay US next week. :-) I juste waited 2.5 years.
BTW I began to remove the oil (magneto) tank to put out the rusty chrom and to get it in black.
What surprise to discover how long it is to do that !
Till now I had to remove the rear fender to acces the rear of the tank. Now the tank can move but the rear cylinder avoid the tank to turn to escape. I'have to remove the bottom braket witch will neet time as it is badly situated. I don't know if it is possible to remove the tank if I put out the bottom braket. Any idea.
Hard to believe that I will need to remove the rear header to take the oil tank out. :-(

HApy new year to all !!!

Ok I succed to remove the oil tank, remove all the black oil, give to black painting job...and clean a lot of time the inside to get it clean.
I was surprised the time to clean the inside as I needed WD 40 tone of water and even after I got black spot in tne water. To put it back I prefered to remove rear fender and pipe. I change the old damaged oil line by the way Now I have to put the "H Sportster" decal. Is there a genuine position for the decal ? One have an original picture of the decal on the oil tank to be sure to do it correct ?
I took a long time to get my oil tank painted and was surprised how easy it was to start my XLCH on the road. Only need 3 kicks. Other bike Harleys (XLH 1992 & FL 1964) after one month only needed to full load the battery to start. Let say that I like the magneto since it's well set.
