I respect and admire the work that goes into a proper restoration, but if they are done correctly they all look alike.

I'm less of a conformist.

i like the use of oeticker clamps on the oils lines rather than standard screw hose clamps.i might do something similar.i have them at work for air and torch hose.

I haven’t had a lot of time to post updates, but my 1964 XLH project is moving along well. Rear brake parts are installed, all of the wires,switches, and cables are installed in the handlebars, and the fenders are on.

I’m hoping to ride it before summer!

Yes, they are speedster bars. XL bars are much narrower at the clamp.
