    thanks CDeeZ, I'm in Hawaii, not many UL riders out here. I think I have seen 1 or 2 others on the road. I am sure there are a couple more out here but mostly on the Big Island.

    I don't know if I've ever seen in person another UL actually going down the road and I'm in the central contiguous! When I was up at Mama Tried last March, there were 2 or 3 ULs if I recall. And at least one of them didn't even run at the time.

    Sorry to be tardy to the party,

    I would absolutely LOVE to own and ride a 45 flathead. I am in South Jersey, and have seen plenty of guys riding around on them, and seen plenty of them in Cheap Thrills shows I've been to.

    The only "bad" thing I've ever heard about them: I was out riding around and saw a guy and his flatty parked on the side of the road. I pulled over to see if he needed anything (not that I could provide too much support; I ride a 90's Sportster). He said something along the lines of "I think it got too hot, this is the first time I've brought it out since it got built." He didn't need anything just was waiting for it to cool off so he could get it back to the house around the corner. I went on my merry way. About an hour later he wasn't there anymore, so guess it wasn't too broke down.

    I don't know much about them and have zero experience riding one. I've never owned or ridden one before, but would gladly buy one if the price was right and the opportunity presented itself.

I never thought I would run anything but points....I love this unit though
    Interesting. I'd not heard of that one so thanks for posting.

    I keep trying to share an image with Imgur which is what I've used for a few years to fulfill that task. But, it isn't working for some reason.

    In the meantime, I wanted to share this image regarding the temps of an air cooled flatty. Post #3 has the image:

    Reportedly from the 1942 Fort Knox Armored School Handbook


    Point being is that yeah, they run kinda hot, and apparently are quite tough in that sense.

    Thank you for the heads up on the electronic ignition Montuckymatt!
    Just got my first flathead and I am building a parts list. I am leaning towards a supercharger on my unit, and that ignition has huge advantages to hook into a Control unit.
