please ask me if you have any questions,


Your website is amazing. I love your bikes!

Can you please advise a little on mounting a front drum brake on linkage type springer forks? I have a Spooky tooth with their dual spring springer fork and I see you have mounted a drum brake on a similar fork there in some pics.

OK, I found a metric o ring that did the trick. No more leak! I also added a boost bottle at the same time. Idled alot faster, was able to adjust down enough. Has MUCH more low end power, but still has no top end like it did before. I've been through the carb and found nothing wrong. Plug is burning about brown paper bag color. Compression is 130 psi. ????
