Update on Marty's Patagonia Harley duel purpose bike?
Thus far La Harley has been duel purpose. Going and Mostly Not Going.
Nigel, the WD-40 sorted out the throttle problem, after the Harley dealer guys tweaked everything, the motor was running fine, until I pulled in at a Recoleta cafe and had a cup of coffee. After that La Harley started right up, I thumped her into first and let out the clutch - nothing. The front sprocket came loose.
Marty had warned me about this, the front sprocket was welded on. OK, I transported to another Harley mechanic- the dealer won't do major work on anything older than 1990.
I was given a needed part list and the expensive parts are being hand carried in from two countries. I transported La Harley home and now am starring at the mufflers and a cardboard box of parts removed to diagnose the problem.

Here is the tech question, are there any Harley qualified mechanics, who want to earn some bucks, going to be in Buenos Aires around Christmas? If so please send a private message. Room and board, pleasant working conditions and I will have most tools. I will need help. thanks xfiltrate
