    Re: Anti-tramp Bars

    Nice looks good, have you felt the difference? My brother has a 67 mustang we've got traction bars to install some time soon which look like they'll mount in a similar way.

    Re: Fixed my heater fan

    Thanks :) Circlip, that's an excellent solution. Will keep that in mind if it comes loose again. Yeah I did the other side too, I really didn't want to have to extract the heater again any time soon.

    Re: Cabrio

    I had some issues last year at the normal place I go to - they failed my Sportster for high hydrocarbons - they used the wrong test criteria for age of the engine.
