Hello
My name is Zach and I'm from SoCal- Ventura area. Just bought a 1974 ironhead, it's kick only and a total POS. I have been lurking the forum for a while now, and now that I am actually tearing a bike down I thought it would be best to actually join. Forgive me in advance when I make mistakes when posting threads etc cause I'm bound to screw that up at some point, but I look forward to talking to yall.
thanks
