Free motorcycle part contest

This is the prototype lay out for our next reproduction part

Sometimes I feel like I am just posting on this site for myself. I know a lot of people read this blog daily, and I would like to see more comments on here. So I am having a contest. Here are the rules, The first person to correctly guess what this box is for, will get one of our prototype mystery parts that goes inside of it. The contest is over as soon as I post a picture of the prototype part. The last rule is-- if I have already told you what the part is, you are not allowed to guess.

The only clue that I am giving you is that the mystery part is for big twins and fits 36 to 64 big twins.


  1. Gee whiz, Matt. This is a lot tougher than it seems at first glance. But it looks to me that it is a prototype of a Box!

    Also, I am an avid reader of your blog. And I think that if you were to make copies of some of the one-off parts you have shown here, they would definitely sell.

    See you in Davenport if not in Wauseon.

  2. Skinny Spark Plug box?? Hope LL IS WELL MATT YOUR BLOG IS AWSOME.

  3. Matt,
    I agree with Teach, Spark Plug.
    Or, a Ho Mo Linkert box.
    Very cool Blog.

  4. My guess is a 50's muffler. Part # 65236-50 the box looks like it has similar proportions to your 40's muffler box.

    Matt I am working on a '47 Knuck and have some questions on correct finishes would it be OK to comment on the blog under the images of the Knuckle you just did or would you prefer emails?

  5. Geoffrey,
    I think that email would probably work best, or you can call me at work.

    Ill give you guys another clue, you have to drill two 1/4 inch holes in your bike to use the part that goes in this box.

  6. Howz about a oil level sight gauge for the oil tank?

  7. Lonnie, You are the man!!! I should have prototypes in two weeks, I will make sure you get one. Email me your address.

  8. No, you and your Dad are the men! I'm just a flunky flailing around in the shop. Still working on the right-hand shift '47, I have some photos of the left hand fuel tank that I am modifying which is the last real piece of the puzzle. I'll put them on my blog(a poor exuse of a blog I might add). Thanks a bunch, I'll put it on the oil tank I cut down 1-inch. Lonnie C.

  9. I have no idea what's going in the box, but nice blog and you're not just talking to your self.(we are paying attention)
