    It's probably corroded within the crimp, so getting it clean enough to solder might be tough. If you can manage that, I would use silver with a suitable flux for strength.

    If you are going to change motors it's a moot point. As D said, you can only bore the '72 - '73 cylinders to +.030, so they get used up. The head bolt pattern is different on the '74 and up 1000 so...

    I will echo D's sentiments above. But there are a few of us left who can and do rebuild ironheads from the crankpin up. It's just so freakin' expensive to do it that it is not cost effective. North...

    You can run the forks with no caps above the seals if the look is OK to you. (It's a classic look.) The later narrow front ends with the metal top caps, the caps are strictly cosmetic and aren't even...

    The irony here is that the Python pipes incorporate a reversion cone in the design. The "python " bulge in the head pipe is there to clear the reversion cone. Of course it is a much better design...

    I used to use them on evos where the customer insisted on drag pipes. They did help the midrange in that particular application in my experience. These were more or less stock evos of the day. The...

    I was replying to the OP's comments, not yours. It sounds like he wants a reaction link set-up rather than the stock type anchor tab.

    In addition to the list from farmall, I would add a valve adjustment. Many shovels have been converted to solid tappets, or some other non-stock tappet because the old originals are, well, old. A...

    Welding a tab to the caliper body risks distorting the bores, making the caliper unusable. Machining it so that a tab can be sandwiched into the assembly is a safer plan.

    My guess is it's a 3 ohm coil, which causes more current through the points than they are designed to handle (and the condenser is not spec'd to handle it either).

    Since the newer bikes are heavier, you will have to juggle the springs and fluid to get the ride you want. It will be a fun learning curve.

    I think you mean to say a loose roller bearing on the right.

    You can replace the Timken races (cups) and bearings (cones) as a set. If you use a matched set, the end play will be determined by...

    That brake drum with the bearings in it is for the mid ball bearing hub. I think it will bolt to the star hub, and of course you would remove the bearings.

    The evo wheels and the earlier twinkie wheels can be used on a four speed chassis with the use of a flat sprocket and a little juggling of spacers. Those wide hubs like you have juat don't fit.

    You do that and then your brake parts won't fit. You need to find a wheel to fit the bike.

    To your specific question, you could drill and tap the brake side holes for sprocket screws.
