    Nobody buys Harleys for the handling and plenty of chopper frames with modest gussets survive just fine. I peeled the gussets off an Evo Sporty frame to harvest the neck tube and it's not hard work,...

    4L80E is a nice upgrade. (The 60 didn't have to suck but execution including those stupid plastic pistons and weak clutches was moronic.)

    Shelby likely used a C6 since they're difficult to kill.

    What DTIA said, it was common in ancient times (good for ease of duplication) and the rust shows it sat unloved for a while.

    The look is VERY easy to duplicate. The lack of cheap HDs overseas...

    It takes about a minute to make a bogus Facebook account and you can use a throwaway email (everyone should have at least one spamdump address). I would never have one under my real name either.

    I think I wouldn't bother unless a dearly wanted to use valve facing as a benchmark for lathe modification which would be absurd vs. turning test bars.
