Yusuf Islam & The Decline of FLTT Conversions

In 1949 the MoCo offered TT conversions for FL’s and I’ve been thinking about building a bike like that for quite some time. Yesterday I sent my oiltank to the fastest working man in the business, LeBeef and just a few hours after he got it he sent me these pics! Pressure tested and ready to go in the frame. Look at the proportions on that thing, pure perfection, even puts the original tank to shame.

I’m finally converting a Knucklehead to FLTT standards, and building a bike to fit TT standards can be pretty tricky but hey! Cat Stevens converted to Islam, and even adopted a cool Muslim name; Yusuf Islam. Now that is some SUPER heavy tricky shit and I’ll never be able to measure up to that guy, I mean I’d totally go for converting to Islam too but I'm missing the special bulletin on how to do that?

  1. tell me where do the children play?

  2. We just finished a '47 TT knuck, raised trans 1", left hand throttle, right hand tank shift! Good luck with yours!

  3. Wow, that's cool news Lonnie, I think I got some Knuckle parts from you some years back..? And hey this is a funny coincidence; I'm using right shift tanks on this one too.
    Take care, ok!
