Observed along a Norwegian rural road

A story might start sad, but as long as it ends well in the end we easily forget the sorrow we had along to achieve our goal.
Another old HOG is back on the road, here observed on a rural county road in the southern parts of ol`Norway.

Wednesday ride!

Wednesday morning I looked at the calendar and found it was the first Wednesday of July.
Hey,that is the day of the month when bikes gather at this Cafe up in the valleys, weather was 100% and I needed just another ride before I closed the garage and leaving for work.
Called my mate Cay "Indianer" and he was ready for a spin too, on his 34 Chief bob job.
It is cool to see how the bike-scene have changed in just a couple of years. Some choppers parked since the eighties start to get back on the road, and the younger guys redo the classic Japanese bikes to neat cafe racers. OK, 90% ride original brand spanking new bikes, but I feel confident that those last ten percent will be growing.
On my way down the valley I could not resist riding my WL bobber hard, rode by some modern Harley custom bikes with fat rear tires and ape hangers struggling with the single lane roads and the multiple curves, oh my how embarrassing, outrun by an antique!

Oldtimer treff/ Scandinavian Indian meet at Mosten Mc club in Denmark, part II

The Non Indian bikes, and an Indian (or two) too!










Two "gammel dansk" and one not so "gammel" (gammel = old).













Oldtimer treff/ Scandinavian Indian meet at Mosten Mc club, Denmark

The travel.


Øyunn onboard the ferry to Denmark.


Stop along the Danish coast, weather is so beautiful.


Local ferry in Denmark, takes only 5 minutes across.


Installed at Mosten Mc campground.

The good guys & gals!











Party!


One can hardly say Mosten Mc`s premises are as most Mc clubs, their own park, drag strip and the most fasinating dining and party hall, Mc shop etc etc.

Generator issues and the joy of the three brush 32E

Ouch, its easy to forget.
Last year when on my way to the Fucker Chopper fest in Sweden I got a generator issue. The commutator on the armature had got a burned spot, was like two segments had suffered from overheating.
Solved the charging issue then by grinding carefully with some sandpaper.
Well, the other night there was no more charging, and when removing the generator I found the armature had become real worse on the same spot, ouch, was to much to be saved by re-cutting.
Had to install a spare armature I had received from Perry, the Canadian 32E generator expert.
I did also get a chance to use my generator testing gear (made this during the winter), cool to see it all working in the lathe prior to installing on the bike.
