Allen's 1934 VLD Motor

Kevin was side-swiped by a cage, and it broke the original gear cover.  He furnished a later VL cover, and we got it all fitted, with updated engine breathing.  Dad spent a lot of time on this motor, fixing all the worn and loose connections(time consuming, but necessary).  A running engine, but loose and worn in most aspects.  It's high compression iron heads are being blasted of carbon, and a fresh coat of hi-heat engine enamel applied.  This model was a "hot-rod version" of the VLs.  It's all timed, intake aligned, tappets adjusted . . . and yes it's nice to look at, with all it's "gizmo-ness" . . . drinking hot coffee from an Official National Motorcycle Museum ceramic mug.
