part of Michigan not far from me. He phoned this morning to talk about an old guy cleaning out his garage full of H.D. stuff from a happily misspent youth.
Amongst the stuff is reported to be a '49 panhead, that was ridden two years ago...asking price $2,000. Obviously this warrants the 120 mile drive for a look.
I know I am opening aHUGE can of worms here...but as pan guys what would you look at first when examining a $2,000 pan? Aside from possibly stolen, cracked cases, bad spigots, etc.
I am out of my element on this one.
