    There is a pan head for sale in my town. The numbers don't match. I don't have a nerf dog to muzzle me when I fuck up. How much leg meat should I pay for this rust bucket?

    By far the best sounding and looking bike I've seen you feature. Just beautiful as it is.
    Respect your knowledge and passion for these bikes.

    Give me those great old, single cam, bolted together crankshafts, and all metal gear drive on the oil pumps and cam, on all the old Panheads, Shovelheads, Flatheads, and EVOs of yester year, when H-D, was great……..they can keep their pressed together, lightweight crankshafts, silent chain drives, PLASTIC tensioners, TWINKIES……..for all I care. These were the real Harleys………great sound and reliability and easy to work on and rebuildable, all day long………no plastic here………..Keep up the great work, Todd…….

    I like the videos you put out, keep the old school rolling. I've got a 48 fl I've had sense 1979 I was 19 when I got it. You should do a video of your stable maybe not. Thanks for sharing your videos

    Todd: Do you offer a consulting service? I would like to ask you questions about the bikes that you post and other Harley subjects, but I don't like being a leach. How can I pay you for answering a few questions?

    Hey Tod if the opportunity ever arises maybe you can put up a video of a paned knuckle frame.

    What a beautiful machine. Do you list any of these bikes online or do you sell them at swaps/shows?

    I have the same problem as you on those foot clutches that are set up that way. So hard to feather them out .  I just can't get used to them vs the orig rocker setup's. Glad you are changing that!
