Tranny Trouble

So,.. big news: Last week we tried to get the Panhead running..
What a failure...!
The ignintion gave a nice spark, but the spakplugs didn't, so after checking some stuff, it turns out that the coil was busted.
We also found out that the Kicker gears inside the tranny were, to say the least, a 'bit' worn out... (4 out of 5 kicks it just rattle and kicked through them)

Ordered some new gears and started to change the busted ones.
Pretty obvious witch ones are the new and witch ones the old ;-)

And I think this one looks better.

HotRod & Custom Show Chimay

Yesterday after work I took the bike out for a little trip to Chimay.
It was a great 2hour drive, but what I saw there was even better!!
The ride back home today wasn't all that fun, pouring rain, it took me 3hours this time,.. poor visibility with fogging glasses and stuff like that...
Anyway, here are some pics:

Anyway, I had a nice day getting some useful tips and tricks to work on those Indian bikes.
Tomorrow we'll put the engine back together and take a look at the injection system.
