    Nice score. If you end up selling any of it I would be interested in the front end and the wheel towards the back of the frame for my shovelhead project.

    The wheel at the back is a late K or Sportster wheel.

    Re: Lucky day

    Some year ago I was at an AHRMA Vintage race meet helping with the event, judging the bike show and displaying vintage memorabilia. An older gentleman approached me and said a friend of mine sent him to see me. He had been a shop owner years before (British customs primarily) and had a pile of stuff he wanted to get rid of. He had offered it to a local shop where he was and they jacked him around so he told them to piss-off. I expressed interest and made a date to look at the stuff. When we got together he had a small shed packed to the gills with old Triumph stuff, lots of pre-unit (which I love) and some unit. After looking it over I asked him what he wanted out of the lot and he surprised me with " I don't want anything, just want it to be used and passed on to those who need it". He had a son-in-law he couldn't stand and didn't want him to profit from it in any fashion. So over a couple of weekends I hauled out two pick-up loads and a 6-1/2 by 10 flatbed trailer of stuff. We kept in touch for a couple years and then it went quiet on his end. Don't know if he passed on or moved, but his contact info went quiet. Some of the stuff went into my projects, some went down the road, some is still here waiting for the right people to come along. Oh, and the SIL committed suicide, karma perhaps??

    I haven't decided what to do with the front end. It is Showa and is in pretty good condition except for the rusty overlength tubes. The rear wheel is a Sportster rim on a mid star hub. I'd like to keep the rim.

    Ok no problem, I actually was needing the rim itself as well lol. I am looking for a 39 or 35mm 6 inch over narrow glide front end, that one looked about right.

    OK guys, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that ScottTZ is a spammer. And I'm not going to open that link to find out!

    I'm thinking of taking a trip to either Oslo, London, or Tierra del Fuego next week. I'll be taking my tap and die set, in case I get diarrhea.
