2000 BMW R1200c Cruiser

stuck exhaust valve 1937 Chief

the above is the after, Boretech in Batavia Ohio serviced the valves, pistons etc, there was just enough original nickle left so i didnt plate them . best machine shop i know..

The fun never ends,
the lower end is next, too loose to run, too much vibration =loss of power ...and if i ran it , it would just explode.

Comparing 1935 and 1936-39 Chief frame necks

I get this question alot, and I'm not an expert on anything. So if this helps. the frame directly above is a true 1935 Chief, see how the neck is "hollowed" and theres no shifter bracket. Pretty early for a neck lock too. Now look at the 1937 Chief frame w red tank, the neck gets thickened in 1936 to 1939, no shift bracket in 1936 it shifts off the trans tower in 1936, 1937 introduces among other features, shifting via a linkage. HD big twin frames thicken the neck casting in the 1947 models ,i believe theres 3 maybe 4 variances in frames that year.
