Beautiful bike! Your dad must have had confidence that you were ready to take over as its caretaker. Love that flathead in the black & white photo, too, even though it's from HD!

Ok! Been a while but I've taken advice from everyone on here and yesterday took her out for the maiden voyage. Valves done, fluids changed and did well for around the block. I noticed a leak from the wassell tank, and monoblocs. Rebuilt the carbs, still leaking from float bowls, might have more work to do there. Gas tank I was thinking to do a sealer. After that's done, time to tackle pre-unit front end and brakes.

Oh, and wiring! ARD belt drive magneto, and a rectifier deal that's should allow me to not need a battery. I'll try to post pics as time allows...
