1955 Porsche progress

moth eaten rear panels after flares were carved off,
replacement quarter panels
swapped out the junked steering wheel for a knockoff banjo style. fits and functions great.Life support added where the huge Blaupunkt was long ago removed. far from done but runs every day.
1955 and earlier dash .plenty of work left.
original seats were too far gone to service, got these race car seats in a trade,they work for now.added neck support and safety not offered by the original shoulder height Porsche seats. Wonder how many folks got broken necks from those shoulder height seats?

Readers 1913 or 1914 Harley Davidson twin discovery

Reader sent me this discovery, w valve covers it would be a 1914, first year for valve covers although a person could have updated a 1912 or 1913 twin that did not have valve covers.

Very kool . Amazing discovery... I'm still looking for a early engine 1914 or earlier for a project to build.
