This video reminded me of my first, actually my only Harley, a '53 K Model. 45" flathead, but in the Sportster like setup... I had that beast apart so many times... Never did figure out why it would puke all it's gears out the bottom of the cases... Heliarc's casees, aircraft wired locknuts, very careful assembly, but it still blew it... But I had many miles between, lulling me to think it was good to go... Had it up over 115 on the new freeway here... Put a set of nice track cams in, it leaped as the cams came on, letting it breath.. HD clutch plates to hold it... But the tranny crashes were all under almost no load, cruising at 50-60 mph... The only conclusion I had was that something let it get into two gear at once, even tho the shifter gates should not have let it happen.. But it's still a good memory of a good time in the late 50s, early 60s..
