    What if using modern technology, I was to update the motorcycle with Tesla theories of alternating Energy?

    The most beautiful looking engine they ever made in in my book. I don't know why so many fancy the panhead so much over this one.

    Beautiful, but that windscreen ruins the otherwise gorgeous lines.

    well I guess making a epa compliable fuel injected engine is what I was referring too. A water cooled knuckle head engine …would be sweet

    Hey Hay, I love you brother.  I'm an enthusiast of many cars and motorcyles my own self and it means a great deal to me or any man as yourself to share a great original knuckle head Harley.  I'm a 61 year of age older guy and have owned some cars of the 1950s and have my third Harley now and I never saw any motor vehicle just for its use, but always related to its time frame and the American heritage and beauty that goes with it.  I see you as a real brother American kind of a guy Jay
