Slims fab ironhead for Leo

This bike came to me long ago for a hardtail oil bag ,and the basic chopper gig...then he came to me with an old HD springer to get installed....Then the man behind the bike, Santa Ana s LEO wanted the thing cleaned up and a few things changed such as a disc conversion ,I did this using a sotail master and a 2000 sporty caliper.I built him some super curly rabbit ears,mounted his bates light,reshaped his early triumph fender and hung it under a 19" sissy bar I built holding his tailight and lic. plate. After all was fabbed i pulled it down to a bare frame and blasted the frame, etch primed it, and shot it with laquer(piano black) and heavy laquer clear. Same treatment went into the oil bag and fender. I then put the bike back together for Leo to bring home( sounds easy doesnt aint) and i forgot a bunch of fab stuff i did such as pipes ,regulator mount,master cyl mount,right side control etc...Im probly forgetting some shit I did, but fuck it He is riding it and it all worked out, Slim 951 217 8814 Thanks again for the work LEO!!

Gary Scott

Ironic photo, since it appears he riding a Triumph ! ?
Scott was an AMA Grand National Champion in 1974.  He raced Triumphs, then raced for Harley-Davidson factory team, then as a privateer.  Gary Scott was an excellent professional motorcycle racer, but sometimes he could be a real asshole.  I guess he slugged Bill Werner in the mouth once over something?  Maybe he deserved it?  Scott claimed a few motors, said a lot of words . . . but hey, gotta like the dude 'cause he goes like hell ! 

TECH: Piston Skirt Slot ( WL Pistons )

There's "Nice to Know" and there's "Need to Know"
I'm not sure which may apply to you ?
This angled slot is factory on all oversize WL (45") pistons. 
Standard bore (2.745 std. size) pistons do not have this slot. 
The slot is only on oversize pistons
This piston (pictured) is +.040 oversize.
The slot is only on one side of the piston - Not both sides. 
Slot position is towards the front of engine(opposite thrust face)
The thrust face of a piston is on backside of each cylinder.
Correct installation = slot towards front-side of cylinder.

Harold broke Cannonball Baker's 24hr record . . . then ended up being killed while testing when a horse stepped out in front of him.  Many top racers die in testing accidents. 
Today is his birthday.
