I'd be interested to see what was done to stiffen up the headstock on those bikes. I'd hope they were stiffened up anyway.

On a Norton featherbed?
Hard to see what else can be done except a wrap round piece of sheet steel of suitable thickness.

Yes. On the replica featherbed frames in the linked examples. You know, the ones that this thread is about.

Once the price achieves $20k, here's plenty of bracing that can be done, but I'd be interested to see what was done, if anything. Since there doesn't appear to be any sheet metal wrapping on any of them, we can probably count that out.

Good to know that if I want to sell my Norton for $20k, I should just drop in a Harley motor before I list it. Easy peasy.
