Mine used to backfire loudly on decal until I fixed the exhaust leak, it sounded like a shotgun blast. One time it happened  in a rough  neighborhood in Toronto, a couple of teenage boys immediately dropped to the ground.

No turn Signals in the 40s!

When will you be retrofitting drum brakes?   ::)

Just an amazing job and absolutely gorgeous.  You find your legs being splayed out with the fat bob tanks?

No, Spots are Repop Harley spots with Amber lenses. Turn signals are my arms! No turn Signals in the 40s!

I'm just curious about your local laws because here in Washington state unless the vehicle actually predates 1973 it has to have turn signals and our state patrol guys would know that it's a clone and not an original.  If you're lucky they only cite you with a Fix-It ticket.

Here in Italy the obligation to install turn signals on motorcycles was introduced in 1995.
Previous bikes still can ride without indicators.

Nice, but your bike's not a '94 or older ;D

Tom, I would never ride my bike without blinkers: they can save your life.
Not using turn signals is the worst thing that you could do, because they allow coming up drivers to understand your intentions and avoid hitting you...

Oh I totally agree, and that's why I actually enlarged mine with the '59 Cadillac lenses. It's just that some guys want to get that retro look and they are right in the fact that in the 1940s motorcycles didn't have turn signals.  our bikes are 1940s Indian tribute bikes which have all of the required modern safety features, unless of course a person elects to remove those to make the bike more like the original. I was just more or less playing devil's advocate for law enforcement who would know that our bikes were outfitted with turn signals, being 1990s and later.
