Thanks for all the well wishes. Yes, Old Smokey, I bought it from Alex in Milwaukee a few years back. I looked at the bottom motor mounts, and they are a bit deteriorated. Good Call, I should replace them, and I see Richard has those for sale also, but I wonder if there's a better option than original rubber? I called energy suspension, no luck. Will try Prothane next.
The welding done at Competition Cycle looks amazing, like the cylinder was never damaged! I noticed some oil leaking from what I think is the neutral safety switch on the left side of the motor. Looking into that now.
