    Hello from Greece!

    I have recently acquired the remnants of a '31 VL, and would like to start a long task of restoring the bike to its original condition with all original parts.

    As you will see from the attached photo, quite a lot of work is needed and I would thus like to ask for any of you who have worked on flatheads previously, to please contribute any useful information (including restoration tips, part sourcing, etc)

    I am quite realistic and know that restoration will probably take years, but a good headstart is all I need!

    Thank you all in advance,

    John

    You may be able to find parts on Ebay, little by little.

    JP parts may be another source.

    Good luck.

    PS: Yes, that's a 1931 Harley VL in my sig picture.
