Saturday I went to Indianapolis Southside Harley Davidson and Buell to the National Openhouse. As usual lots of discounts, food, and the hospitality was par excellent. I love to browse and see how folks are personalizing their cycles. I alway look for the oldest vintage bike that shows up. On this occasion it was a 1963 DuoGlide Panhead with the kickstart. This old relic was in it's original condition. Faded original light blue paint, some rust, and tattered...but running just the same. It had been updated to a 12 volt system and the battery was being carried in the left side of the old grubby leather saddle bags. The odometer was not the original and the gent who has owned it 30 years has no idea how many miles it has. I ask the owner if it was hard to kick start one of those old bikes. He told me he has had several kick start harleys and you just have to learn each one's "personality".
