    Would like to know how brass behaves (color) with engine heat. Anyone knows?

    Those look like the two caps on my front teeth…… Bling-BLING !

    Being mostly copper, they will patina pretty quick when they get hot.

    That might look (mottled) good after awhile. I’d venture they might be a slow to cool down. But then, Paughco® used to be headquartered in LA. They go back.
    I’m glad to see any manufacturer come up with new “OEM patterned” ideas from the past.

    And I’ve searched the world looking for Big Twin quality Khakis that will push against a 65 mph headwind. These are those. Dense and heavy cotton for 8.5 oz., imo. USA made.

    Brass and black never go back. Such a rich look, the contrast. Very cool!

    The Knuckle and Panhead market has some surprises in store for it’s de-vo-tees.

    Safe to say, that before June ’10, some new and positive changes will emerge from the aftermarket and benchmark 2010 within Knuckle & Panhead history.

    I had a set of 1997, Paughco® (red-card) chrome Panhead covers. The holes were not lined up with a stock D-ring. I drove me nuts hogging each individual hole (24 total) to match the D-ring holes. You can share my misery step-by-step on but you have to register to see the section under “Repop”, if it still exist.
    “Those covers are all made in Taiwan, and most of them have “migrated” holes.” (my note: from so many stamping being made over the years from one set of stamp-molds?)
    I didn’t try to install the covers until 2007. Shortly thereafter Tedd Cycle offered stainless steel “from new patterns”. I was too early.

    Paughco® rigid and hyd. rear brake drums, and brake shoes are famous for fit, made to spec. and individually trued by Paughco.
    Synopsis: The brass covers will cool faster than copper. They may have more sound absorption than steel, certainly more sound proof than the 1948 aluminum version.
    Paughco has more control over their products that reach the end user.

    Best answer in 2008:

    When asked by a spectator what (AMCA ) Dave Minerva’s 1940 “Big Tank” Crocker® was valued at;
    Dave blips the throttle to his 68-year-old motor a few times and replies. “Doesn’t matter”.

    E-Z Rider the movie, took it’s name from the Janis Joplin, earlier than the movie, recording of “Easy Rider”.
    I believe her “Easy Rider” hopped freight trains.

    I found this Carbon Fiber Non-DOT (extended 1/2 shell) from and ad in Thunder Press and like it.
    For an additional $11.00, they installed (3) black visor snaps and included a black visor for $132.00 total (included shipping).
    With the dropped (extended) back it looks close to DOT, but without the bulk. Nice carbon weave pattern. The helmet is clear-gel charcoal that if scratched can be spot sanded with 1500 or 2000 grit paper and buffed with rubbing compound.
    Available from Advanced Carbon Composites Inc., Orlando, FL. 100% USA made.

    The (10-0963) ’58-62 (replica) Timken (relay) cases will be here in a month or two. The part number is in the 2010 catalog.
    V-Twin® is making them. I’m ordering a set.
