I have always heard negative things about the Harley Davidson VL series of motorcycles. I heard they overheat and you can't keep pistons in them along with a lot of other things like total loss oiling, etc. I intend to find out for myself.
I am in the process of sourcing 1934 VLD parts and hope to have a running bike by the end of the year. I have spoken to several VL fans and must admit it sounds like fun. I never have expected an antique motorcycle to perform like a modern bike which is why they fascinate me. It is the mechanicalness of the old machines that keeps us all coming back for more.
