    I have not, but I have worked on a VLD 80 inch Flathead Restoration, I had to make new fins for the heads, new valve guides, fit new rings, paint the heads and cases the correct colors and bake them in the oven to cure

    Uncle Dave as I call him has worked @ the same dealer ship for 0ver 35 years, has international sales, a basement and garage full of parts. 1 day a young man stopped by to purchase his low number original Sturgis model, once he started saying how he was going to chop it Uncle Dave nicely told him the bike was no longer for sale, He has borrowed me bikes from his collection with a phone call any time I need 1, one trip to Sturgis, it was Jeffs first time, the anniversary Bagger I was riding caught fire, the battery cable rubbed on the rear cylinder, I put a new cable on it. In Rapid city it had NO rear brakes, Jeff went and got some brake fluid for me we bled it and rode off to Deadwood to meet Breeze and Craig @ saloon #10, Thanks Jeff
