life is good
put a front fender on it.
did you have a dwell meter on it when you had the carburetor sync gauge and timing light on it . i like old school bikes.:smile2:So, new Duro 918s mounted, brakes bled more and lower front brake hoses replaced. Checked compression again and the left bank was ~120 psi, right bank 180. But the left was the good bank! Pulled th left belt cover and sure enough, I had put the belt one tooth off. Corrected that (and valve adjustment, timing, carb sync, and now she runs much differently! Quieter, smoother, better pull through lower rpms. Hopefully the mileage will improve now, too.
Anyone going to WingDing in Knoxville this year? Check out the Hunley in Pistol Pete's booth! It will be there with some awesome early 'wings along with serial number 2!
Great.Thanks for the comments, folks! SO far this Spring, she has won Best of Show Motorcycle in Rockwood's Thunder Road show, and 2nd place in the Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club's show (some very nice machines in that one). My plan is to show it this summer and ride it (maybe to a few shows) next summer. The wife and I plan to ride the GL1800 to Globe Arizona via US 70 next month.

Gets co-routed MANY times with other roads. Used to go shore to shore, now ends in Globe, Az. I've put a ton of "shaping points" in Basecamp to hopefully hold the GPS on-route.is that the road "less traveled" ??
I looked at that route, and it seems to disappear at the intersection of US-11 west of Faragut, TN.
that seems very odd to me
that don't look like a route that a GPS will want to stay with?
that also goes through Kingston, OK which is just 12 miles short of where my aunt lives in the summer months.
Cave men had wind-up chain saws. >I've only ever seen petrified wood in photos or man made walls, never in its natural state. But how does it always seem to have those dead straight cuts in it, almost like a chainsaw did it?
