    Waiting on the heads to come back from powder coating, I spent some time this weekend on other things. The rear wheel cleaned up nicely. I went through the hub on it, cleaned, greased and re-assembled.

    The front wheel may be a lost cause. It's quite rusted.

    Stainless spokes.
    Glass bead the spokes and nipples if you want to make them look cadmium plated.

    I haven't gone through the front hub yet, but will probably do that this coming weekend. Who is your go-to resource for rims and spokes? I haven't laced a rim since I was a teenager chopping up bicycles....

    Buchanan is the best for spokes........

    Just buy a quality wheel or an older Harley take off wheel..........
    Lacing bicycles and motorcycles is the same thing............

    Bike Station Shock Absorbers for Classic Springer Forks

    These small oil/gas shocks replace the inner fork springs and the rods of the front spring fork of stock Springer forks. They support the outer fork springs and provide significantly improved suspension for your front end.

    Don't clean that bike up too much . Looks badass the way it is. Just enough to make sure its mechanically sound. Forget fresh paint.

    The Flathead Power rocker arm covers are redesigned for better performance, but retain a relatively stock appearance.
    Made of die-cast aluminum, and instead of being held in place by the valve guide, they are held down by valve spring pressure.
    The guides and springs will need to be S&S cause they are not made the same as Oem.

    Also the top Tins are diff.
    Available in: Chrome, Gloss Black Powdercoat and Silver Powdercoat ...

    Will also need their line kit .. PN 106-4446
    Nope, then he needs to replace guides
    Better off with stock tins, tubing is rasy to bend with alittle heat, cracks xan be braised.
