    Fingers crossed that it will be OK! It would be nice to keep the original.

    Probably a hairline split in a sweated solder joint. We can hope.

    Not many true radiator shops left. They'll get you fixed up and back on the road in no time.

    I am in love with the flat head V8 boss boss bike that Cliff's auto built.

    Dag -nab- it.. or something like that.

    Talking to the radiator like a Senior Chief or Sgt Major dressing down a stupid E6 wouldn't make it be any different, so I won't waste my breath.

    Yeah, it's a kick in several places to find something like this.

    If there is a bright side, you won't have a corroded radiator that WILL split out in the middle of a parade or a trip over to the base on a hot summer day.

    Good steering, tight seals on the drive line and a tight radiator. You're getting close!
