Robbie, I'd like to see some more pics of our green machine. I really like the paint scheme. Was that a factory option, or your creation?

Geoffroy, Dou you have dual exhaust on your machine? I always wondered what a 45" motor would sound like with two mellow tone mufflers. All I have seen as dual exhaust was drag pipes, and unless it's a hotrod motor, they don't sound good to me. Nice looking motorcycle.

I know someone who tried that a fair while ago. Twin exhausts with an elbow back over the gearbox, like a panhead. Sounded nice but lots of heat problems.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Here is my 42WLA when I got it, in about 1972, still in Royal Australian Air Force MP colors.

And a year later, on my 16th birthday, on my way to take my drivers license test 1n 1973. Cops freaked about the hand change and basically wrote out my license while I rode up the street, turned around and came back.

Here we are more recently.

And here is my "other Flattie" the Norley Flatinator - servicar engine in a Norton Dominator Featherbed frame.

Hi Folks, I'm Gray living in Canterbury England. This is my WLC. It's been with me since '71 but recently spent my pension fund on a rebuild and paint job.
