My first knucklehead. 1946. I built so many for other friends of mine, but never got to have one myself. Collecting parts and stashing stuff for quite a few years. About all the parts I collected were damaged(as usual or I wouldn't get to have any of this stuff), screwed up...farted up...nobody wanted it - throw-away. I got it all done, and for test runs and shakedowns - I guess it's ok. The knuckle engine has a different sound, unlike a panhead. I haven't really got into yet. I need a run to Des Moines or Rockford to get the beat in my head, in my heart. It's that motor sound - it's what grinds into you - the rhythm - the beat. Whether an XLCH, an XR, a CBR, a KX, a CR...or a new Mil' 8....
It's just the beat that you jo jo with. Like it or not, or like it !
