wrong period , Class or time machine


Panhead style rocker boxes on an Evo motor...some sez its a cheap imitations...some sez its a reliable retro looking motors...

but back in the 1966, they came out with these cast aluminum rocker box for panhead.

so your panhead will look like a new motor : Shovelhead!
Cheap? I don't know about what people said back in the mid 60's...
but today, with the "period correct" craze....you can buy it on Ebay for $1200 (starting bid).
so....wrong period, a classy super rare parts...or we just need a time machine.
you decide...
for me, building bikes and ride it with good friends is part of my life.
and I'm lucky that its part of my job too...
in my shop, people come and go but good friends stay.
some used to say fuck evo, some are buying old Japanese bikes.
it's just getting more exciting!
