Nostalgia Vintage Parts

Someone show-chromed these cast iron Sportster tappet guides many years ago.  They're really cool, but kinda wore out and loose.  Harley only ran these from 1957 to around 1961.  Using the vintage, circa 1947 Sunnen hone, I set up a 720, modified a push-up shoe, and a used SL-7 stone, trued it up . . . and honed each block a heavy +.005 for new +5 OD roller cam followers.  This chrome cast will give his '66CH nostalgia race aura . . . It's all about slicks & smoke !
