Friend of mine stopped by a week ago, knew of a flathead for sale, was I interested? Yup. He runs it down, picks it up and then calls. Says its a 46, so I rattle off the serial number to him, and sure enough, it's my old bike.
A little oil, gas, fresh battery, and wd 40 on the throttle cable, and she starts up. Yeah, it was a good weekend!!!
PS, It did look a little different when it went down the road, don't know where the stock springer went to, etc, etc, but it's back.
