when you spend too much time on one Harley-Davidson, this is what happens.
since i started racing with xr1000, i've been spending less and less time with the panhead.
a few weeks ago, with some friends we went up to the mountains in back of Aichi. we stopped for a gas after about 50miles. i filled my panhead tank and then when i tried to kick start the engine, the pedal broke off. luckily the engine started... i didn't have to look for a slope.
now i got a second hand part from zero enginieering and ready for another ride.
