Does anyone have a good clear picture of a well done Indian Chief cylinder?

As the top of the cylinder is flat, and the valves protrude somewhat into the chamber, I'm considering welding the heads and doing some hi/lo channels, with a divider between the valves. It's to be a stroker, and I may have a positive piston protrusion to work with...jb

Well done??
I have plenty of pics of thoroughly cooked ones.
Side view? Top view?

Let me rephrase that to " well executed cylinder relieving"

I've got some of bad cylinder relieving. Since the top ring is so easily exposed, you would be better off to sculpture the head.
