    Many thanks, John!! I was already thinking, that the issue is on the other side of the wrench...

    Re: 1950 Hydra Glide EL61 Restoration

    Thanks, John. I will ask, if I need more pictures.

    During the week, when I'm not working on the bike, I can do some research. Many parts of the bike are already chrome plated. I was really not sure to leave them that way or to remove the chrome and get the original look. But I know, I would not be satisfied with chromed parts which came with a different plating from the MoCo. So I will remove all the chrome and now I'm investigating how to parkerize at home. Some parts just need to be polished after the chrome was removed, but the parkerizing process gives me some headache. But this is part of the fun.
    Right now I'm creating some tables in Excel (based on the Palmer book), what plating is required for each part. The Palmer book only says "part XY is parkerized", but doesn't mention any part numbers. So I spend my evenings -totally alone (just with a beer as compagnon) in front of my Mac- and search for the part numbers.... A lot of work, but it will make things much easier. When I'm done, I will be happy to share the list, if someone needs it.
