Now as I'm older I sometimes wish I had waited for the electric start.Then I think of how many times the kicker saved my drunk a**.Now for some reason I just wonder if the XL would've lasted as long as the CH.It'a a AMF had a problem with it jumping back down into 1st gear from 2sd when I first got it so blueprinted trans and installed a barnett clutch the 1st year I had it that fixed that problem.Basically other than afew carb rebluids that's all that ever been done to motor.
I know this maybe more than Y'all wanted to know here but I know AMF caught a bad rap back in the day but I'll have to say mine must have been built during the middle of the week.Also notice it came from Hell Harley the last 3#'s on my driver license is 666 the last 3#'s on my Vietnam Veterans Of America members card is 666 and my unit patch in the Nam looked like a pitch fork the 4th Trans Batt
