    I always loved flatheads. My own, way back in my long burned out youth, was a 49 WL Harley 45 incher with Ricardo heads. I stripped it down to about less than 400 pounds
    and used it off road a lot. I was competing in an enduro when the engine exploded under me. I was so disgusted I rolled into the ditch and got off before it fully stopped.
    Later I bought a war surplus engine for 75 dollars and warmed it over and put the Ricardo heads on it. It was a really fun machine and easy to work on.
    I have always wanted another flathead but they are going extinct.
