    Noticed some weird webbing, went in with a long q tip and this metallic muck chunked off. Crappy paint? Came from inside the fins there...
    Also, should the red paint stuff inside be coming off?? I feel real dumb right now.

    Yay, more stuff! Enough to have a swapmeet? Seriously... what you can't use may often be sold.

    Hah! Not enough yet. Once I start yanking more stuff off, maybe. I'd be up for trading though!

    New questions.

    Currently the bike has a 53 right case and a repop left. Special construction blah blah.

    If I were able to get my hands on an original 50 left case:

    Is that cool

    Does it snap right on like magic

    Can I re-register it easily and if so what year does it become

    Noticing my frame is a little bent and might want to just find another, but its tags match the engine tags.

    Also what does someone normally pay for a left case? Also how is everybody??

    This case is a faithful reproduction of the left–hand 1948-1954 Panhead engine case.
    It is made from 356 aluminum alloy which has been heat treated to T6 specifications.
    Just like the original Panhead engine case, the main bearing bore is a cast in keyed steel insert. It has the original part number cast on the inside. The cylinder deck and bore, the motor mounts, and the main bearing bore are all left with .040-.060 of material so that it can be perfectly matched up to your original right hand case, which we can do for you if necessary. If you want your motor to look like it did when it originally came from Milwaukee, then this is the case for you.
    $700 ...



    You could upgrade the left case to a Timken Bearing case (69-up) and run the 1-1/4" splined shaft ...
    More parts are involved to do that mod ....

    Well thanks! The thing is, I had no intention of looking for the other case or replacing it, but a friend has a 50 he wants to sell.

    So while that's not what I was planning, I'm thinking both overall "rightness", the fact I like old parts, and the possibility that raising its value is a good idea in case things don't pan out in my goldmining plans... might be smart? Or might be dumb! That's why I'm asking. The point would be to tick off a few boxes there.

    Frames can be straightened (the nice thing about HDs is they're heavy and crude). A case swap won't make the belly numbers match (though stamps are sold for those inclined to the welding and associated fuckery) so best to leave it as is, but should any cheap Pan cases come your way it never hurts to have spares. I'd focus the money on building what you have instead of distractions.

    I know it won't make the numbers match, but if I want to re-register it, what happens then?

    Also I knew you'd say that and I know it's probably the right thing to skip it, I just got itchy about it is all.

    Right case is not a 53 Hun, see the big red thingie ... If it was a 53 right case there would be a lifter screen casted into the case ...

    Your case is 50 to 52 ...

    Oopsy I meant 52. The left case I'm thinking of buying is a 53. Too much numbers

    I would buy the 53 case and have it machined to match your 52, as far as belly numbers not matching they do not match now, so no loss there at least you would have real H-D cases and that would bring the value way up! As far as re-register you would need to check with your state DMV. Post pics of the left case you want to buy so we can look at the #'s.

    Before you shell out any coin for a left side case that old, find someone you trust, who has the knowledge to inspect it. A loose main race boss can render the case unusable, or at the least, mean expensive repairs. Hopefully you will get a good one.

    Went to see the left case, didn't buy it. Got nervous...

    Decided I'm looking for a new frame that isn't hinky, and taking the engine in to be cleaned up and sorted out. Long day already.

    Indeed ....

    It is made from 356 aluminum alloy which has been heat treated to T6 specifications.
    Just like the original Panhead engine case, the main bearing bore is a cast in keyed steel insert machined for the 69-up Timken style main bearing.

    Gone is the old one inch, loose bearing, tapered, sprocket shaft that your motor has now ...

    This left side case is a faithful reproduction of the Panhead engine case.
