Awesome machine John, well done. One word of caution, I used copper oil lines on my Deluxe. Worked well for about 15 years, no problems. Several months ago, I was out ridding and happend to be looking at my oil gage. Usually going down the road, it's between 15 - 18 lbs. It was bounching between 5 lbs and 0. I thought that's not right and hit the kill button and the clutch. My main feed line had snapped off right at the farrel! Luckily, I was looking at the gage as it happend. No damage was done and I have logged a couple hundred miles since - but when I talked to folks about it. They all seemed to say, copper work hardens and then becomes brittle and well brake just like mine did. I had no idea, I replaced all with steel lines. It was news to me, so I thought I would pass it on. Keep an eye on that gage! good luck with your beautiful machines, Tom.
