No, bike is pretty well built from the date I bought it.  Runs decent, Dyna EI, 836 kit, Franks Forking front end, I am just refreshing it a bit with new pipes, tires, seat, wiring, and a few other updates.  Spent its life in Michigan and there is a lot of chrome to clean up....

Britman..... nice, clean machine. Not typically my kind of bike, but every time I see one recently, the interest graph swings upwards. Weird.......

It is amazing what a little Mothers polish, new pipes, and a proper size chopper back tire will do.  The tank has been sealed, cam chain and valve lash checked, new plugs, and fluids. I just have to straighten out some wiring, and bolt the new seat and all the other goodies back on to be done.  I also discovered the wheel crush drive rubbers were shot when I mounted the tire so replacements finally arrived and rear wheel will be coming back off. The pipes are still Mac 4into4 but the later smaller size without the spigot mounts. The old pipes were leaking badly at the head on cylinders 2 and 3 so I am hoping for some increased performance also.  I had to change out all the mounting hardware, but some used on Fleabay reasonable. I probably won't ride this bike 200 miles in a year, but damn I just like the look.......

Finished it up today.  Little things make a bike your own like replacing the bottom of the electrical box that was constructed out a plastic oil can with a fabricated aluminum bracket.  The smaller pipes seemed to increased the torque curve quite a bit, and the new seat is a lot more comfortable but about a 10 mile ride is still maximum.

Are those pipes coated inside? They almost seem to match the tank colour! Sweet looking ride.

Just orange header paint.  I have always coated new pipes with it, seems to help deter blueing.....
