You are absolutely correct (and I feel kinda dumb).

It's gonna be on the back burner for now, since I have several projects ahead of it, and driving truck severely limits my home time. And I'm just starting to research it to figure out which way to go with it.

Yeah, that's a plug wire hanging down.

And I've been into cars, pickups, guitars, and amps most of my life, so I'm kinda new to who's who with bikes. To whom are you referring?

If it’s who I think he meant and he had his hands on any part of this bike, you got a good deal

Wow, very interesting. I feel like an idiot for not knowing who he was. I see that his shop is still in business too, very cool to see that his legacy is still alive. And now I'm very curious about this engine. I'm definitely going to have to get ahold of the guy who built it.

Those jugs are ones that Drag Specialties and V-Twin sell. That tank stand is unreal!
