Thread: 1946 FL Finally got a knuck

  1. 1946 FL Finally got a knuck

    Hello all, I am a sign maker by trade and been living in Northern Virginia all my life. I've been wanting a knucklehead since I was 14 back in 1971. A neighbor let me assist in assembling his chopper, that was new-school back then. I helped him get it running so he allowed me to be the first to ride it, damn; Raked-out extended twisted springer front end, Z bars, spring loaded suicide clutch, ratchet top shifter, Pontiac pistons and Chevy valves. What a hoot driving that for about half a mile, parked it, then went home to change underwear.
    47 years later, finally got a knuck. Needed some work but not upside down. Being mechanically inclined helps me ride it every good weather day. I rebuilt the trans, and the engine was done by Pete Hill, a great man. Yesterday I replaced the front suspension springs, spring rods, bushings and shock, what a nice ride improvement that made.
    Anyway, still have a lot to learn and appreciate all the knowledge people in this group are willing to share.
