knucklehead line up
I spent the morning setting up the clutch pedal and rod on Andy's 47, and my dad fit up the fender tips on Don's 42. I go nuts over lifts filled with cool old bikes.
These are original fender tips that we had Pat strip, straighten and polish. New chrome does not bend or flex, it peals when you try to bend a part. This means that you have to pre polish and pre fit everything. It is a lot of work and I am glad that my dad did it.
OH man, this is the goods, 1942 deluxe sport solos had these fender tips listed on the order blank. It is kind of a bummer to cover up the nice crown definition.
