Matt, you have found some great stuff. Are you close to having all the components and are just posting images over time, or is the hunt still on? How long has this taken? This is a great collection.

Actually started in April of this year and the hunt is definantly on. A lot of these first tools are basic with a couple special ones so far. The special ones are expensive so it is a few at a time as I can pay for them. I will always take an thing that anyone can find also. I would say I have about 1/3 bought and 2/3 found. Some of these tools will be miracles to find or afford unless I am lucky but then again I really just started.

Yes it helps with research and getting second hand stuff. Harley itself is pretty worthless but being in the Antique Motorcycle Asso. Makes it very easy too.
