Cool bikes Ron, the Sporty i was running was 1972, the year Harley turned the 900`s into 1,000 cc engines if i`m correct they just bored out the 900`s which left a thin bore wall and why they went through rings so fast.

My best Cane

I found this stick in Texas years ago and made a cane from it, put a Diamond Willow handle on it.
Not sure what kind of wood it is , a vine wound itself around it as it grew. :)

Re: My first wooden bucket, plus canteen

Lesson learned,put water in the pine canteen this morning and as i watched the sides pushed out. :shock:
Pine absorbs the water so fast and swells fast, not sure what i`m missing, maybe straps would keep it together.

Got one of the two done but had to quit as it`s 93 and humid today.
This is a easy design, cut a hollow circle and glue two sides on it, this is made from Pine.

I bought a brand new 02 Indian Chief RoadMaster in 02, it was the first all Indian they built in years and was also a lot of problems.
It had the power plus eng and was nice looking , have a picture somewhere but can`t find it.
