Sleeping On The Job !

I worked really hard last night.  Morty was helping as usual, and we got the K-Model clutch all clean again, and working properly.  We washed parts, and jammed on tunes while we worked.  It was almost 10:00pm, and I'm talking to Morty . . . then I look over and he's asleep !  It's difficult to find good help around here . . !

You Could Win A 1972 Harley-Davidson Ironhead Sporster Built by The Gasbox at Fuel Cleveland 2018

Here is your chance to take home a one of a kind build by Jesse Bassett from The Gasbox! This 1972 Harley-Davidson Ironhead Sportster will be given away to one lucky ticket holder at Fuel Cleveland on July 28, 2018. All you have to do is swing over to and grab yourself a Fuel Cleveland Logo Patch, with that purchase you will receive a free entry ticket into the raffle for the bike. YOU MUST BE PRESENT AT FUEL CLEVELAND TO WIN THE BIKE! 

If you can't make it to Fuel Cleveland but still feeling a little lucky, everyone who buys a Fuel Cleveland Patch will also be entered to possibly win a SQUARE WAVE® TIG 200 Welder, A POWER MIG® 210 MP Welder or a TOMAHAWK® 375 Plasma Cutter from long time Fuel Cleveland show sponsor Lincoln Electric. While having to be present to win the motorcycle, you do not have to be present to win any of the three Lincoln Electric prizes!

For more in depth details on the build you can swing on over to and get a good look at what could be your new bike.


The engine was completely restored by Delzani Cycle with NOS Harley-Davidson Components. Big money (around $5,000!) went into this engine to make it just perfect for its new owner. 







Big thanks to Cleveland's own Lincoln Electric for always being one of the main sponsors for Fuel Cleveland. One of these machines could be yours!
You could win a TOMAHAWK® 375 PLASMA CUTTER.


You could win a POWER MIG® 210 MP Welder


You could win a SQUARE WAVE® TIG 200 Welder

The Sportster lower-end.  It can handle the power with it's Timken design and strong flywheel configuration.  The weakness can be the small crankcase volume.  What to do with all that air?

What is the Greasy Dozen Run? It's a free Grassroots motorcycle event! You read that correctly...FREE

In honor of the builders efforts, sponsors and the followers of The Greasy Dozen we host this free event. The Greasy Dozen Run is an organized ride through some of Ohio's best winding back roads.

FIT IT - Don't forget it . . .

Finally got this '48 lower buttoned up.  Before assembly, there's a million "checks" that need to be addressed before you get it all together.  Like aligning the new idler studs with the gear cover, checking cam clearances, renewing 1/4-24 threads, checking breather fit, checking flywheel endplay, does the pinion nut hit . . . any weird noises?  Turn off the radio and listen as you spin it over.  Do the case bolts fit properly?  I use old nuts for bolting and unbolting (then I use the new cadmium nuts for final assembly - so I don't garf 'em all up).  Cylinder studs installed to correct height.  Make sure you read the H-D manual and install the roller bearings and cages in the correct direction for the year engine.  Use the proper thrust washers, and install them in the correct location.  (Lot's of engines have this stuff screwed up)  I already fitted the pinion gear and oil pump gear (and lapped them for fitment) since they are usually way too tight) Fit these gears before you get it all assembled.  You really got to check this shit - it takes a lot of time, but it must be done.
