    I had a "Can of tuna". First and only "vehicle" I bought new. Put over 10K miles on it and sold it when I had kids because thats what happens.

    Guys, maybe a separate thread to discuss bikes?

    The Flattie is gorgeous.
    I always used to talk my Sportster owning friends into letting me cut away the stock timing cover... So much better.....

    I owned this ‘76CH for 31 years. Traded it in 2 years ago after I needed a new right knee. I changed pushrods every 3 years so I have lots of left overs. Even a set still in the wrapper. Needless to say I did some machining in a few spots.


    That last one was me in ‘80 on my divorced KHK project. Bought the bike as a bobber in ‘70. The trans blew out a few years later so I got creative. Still own it. In pieces waiting for me to retire next August. No pushrods in that one.

    Yeah, I have to admit that I'd like to have a KR too. The way they dominated the dirt track... Phenomenal.

    That's my dirty little secret. There is a Harley that I'd ride.

    My first bike, many years ago, was a Harley. It was all I could afford. A 1936 EL. One was enough.

    BUT: I'd *love* to have a KR. Around 30 years ago a guy in my neighborhood rode one - lights and tiny mufflers somehow made it street legal. Not so fast, but a huge part of American flat track history.

    How many chucks would you chuck in a chuck if you could and would chuck, chucks?

    More seriously though, it's probably so he doesn't have to flip the jaws around. Plus now you can grab that chuck in a mill vise and hold round stock quickly and easily on end for milling.

    Hard to tell what kind of motorcycle it is with that picture.
