XLCH Magneto and Oil Tank

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have done anything on here. Yes work has been crazy but that is no excuse. Well I did pick up some choice little parts for the "Queen Bee" and I really stoked about them. Patina and all for next to nothing thanks to tow truck Dave my neighbor. He has come through in a big way for me and the little scratch I threw at him will never be enough. Thanks Dave. Anyway the newbies to the build are an XLCH Fairbanks-Morse Magneto and XLCH oil tank, all original parts to the engine that I'm running. I still have to weld on the hardtail and get the front wheel laced to the up front drum and my engine guy Ben of Bens Cycle Shop has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. God speed on recovery and I wish you well. He is a great guy and humble about his wisdom...kinda like a Harley Yoda.
