    I bet those eggs taste just a little bit better fried up in that Panhead cover.

    Gotta be one of those Taiwan Pan covers from the stamping die that’s been over-used, so much that the 12 holes have drifted about 1/8″ off-target.

    That’s some skillet.

    I got my skillets from Paughco®. 🙂

    When I tried to return them because the holes were all but one, off blueprint, and the holes wouldn’t match,
    Paughco® laughed at me 🙂 🙂 and replied, “They’re ALL like that! Try and auger-out the the holes to fit!
    Heck, they could put handles on them and sell them as fry pans now….. thanks to the “biker inventive mind”.

    And right after a fortifying egg breakfast, with help from the spirit of Bill Harley, we’re changing the coil mount on his 1936-1946 Big Twins, to accompany his later engineering improvements that he was unable to utilize.

    And yes, I did hear him whisper, “The terminal box will fit behind the coil. Try it and see.”

    Wouldn’t it be fun to create the Harley-Davidson story – beginning before the shed. Certainly there’s enough historians alive today that could tell the story well.

    There’s Herbert Wagner to lead the way. The guy here in town with the running automobile & motorcycle museum (a split level warehouse packed with old stuff that he already rents-out to production companies.
    Probably be some drama in (4) guys working in one shed. What they didn’t have Ole Evinrude could probably supply. There were a ton of aftermarket motor parts back then, just like today. The tools they used to make #1 in 1903 would be of great interest.

    I believe 1900 Milwaukee was like Florence, Italy during Michelangelo’s time.
    Read Wagner’s “At The Creation” and find that the place was teeming with talent and pushing the industrial revolution.

    ~ Last of the USA made V-Twin frames ~

    This frame is being returned next week. If you want to remove (die-grind the weld bead) the rear tank/top motor mount bracket, and reposition a new one with a full motor in the frame, for the correct position of the top motor mount, then the rest of the frame checks out.
    2010 retail price $1,696.31 (f.o.b Cardiff, CA)
    http://vintagetwin.com/topic.php?id=198
    The frames are still back-ordered at V-Twin®. The next 51-1000 will be from Taiwan.
    This is frame #2097.

    Some machine-grade ABS for the insulator bars. They’ll drop-ship to where ever you want:
