Hi, all. My first post here. I am resurrecting my first Harley. 79 xlh. Just finished up the topend after a 20 year hibernation. Have a lot of little odd and ends to finish up before I fire it up. I will probably lean on you all for advice going forward. Thanks in advance.

I will post pics of the progress, as soon as I figure out how to do it. Lol. Hopefully, soon there will be a video link so we can all appreciate her when she finally wakes up.
