    What gas line broke? the steel one or did a rubber line crack and split?

          Looks like a Sportster to me?

          How do you like your Sportster...regular or extra crispy?

        I would say it's a salvage bike at this point....

        Doesn’t look like a Roadstar, fender, tail light, signals and drive pulley in the right.

          Gauges are the first thing that I noticed

        Me too, but thought maybe they came out of the fairing.

          Shame about the bike and burns, but good to hear you're OK otherwise.

            Paint probably got discolored a little. Should buff out okay.

              Looks like an old Dyna to me. Tank is awfully large to be a Sporty.


              Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

                That or an early '80's Roadster. They had the bigger tank. Those gauges say late 70's Superglide to me. Doesn't really matter now.

              That's true.

                I had a friend with a 1975 XLCH, he was kicking it with the air breather off and it backfired and shot a big flame out, singing his leg. Unfortunately, he was diabetic, so it wouldn't heal up and eventually got infected. He should have got it cut off but he was too proud for that so he just ended up dying instead. His was the only eulogy I have ever given.

                  Hey, all that aside, I hope you are OK and back on 2 wheels soon. Hopefully you can get your Roadstar going soon.

                    It is a 1979 FXE bought brand new at Cycle Stop in Rochester NY. it was rubber gas line cracked. Funny it got so hot the gas tank expanded twice its size. It is almost back together. Just top end and drive train need to be finished. Road Star won't see highway for a month or two depending on parts availability. it is on hold for now.

                        Good idea to keep an eye on the rubber lines, I just replaced mine and they were cracked pretty good. Thankfully I avoided a fire!
