    Got the Eldo on the road finally. With the new clutch it's amazingly quieter and pick up is much more positive. I think one clutch plate failed a long time ago and the center was just spinning around in there and all the drive was being carried by the other plate. One center was all tumbled looking:

    I left all the Wixom stuff off for a while. It's been on the bike for ~18 years.

    Wow, beautiful Eldo!

    This bike is cool, but, I'm a little confused. Is that a custom frame? looks like a 1100 Sport fuel tank, but, then I see a round-barrel engine. Lot's of different eras mixed together.

    i had a clutch plate fail like that on a le mans 2, i could run it at 105 MPH (170km/h) before it started slipping.
    not sure the touring engine actually has the power needed to get clutch slip with one clutch plate
    so quite probable you ran it with one disk

    Just a picture I found on FB. I'll leave to the experts to figure out what it is.

    Looks like spine-frame "pork chop" frame with a round-fin motor.

    The later spine frames like the Centauro and Daytona RS have an even meatier pork chop but no stash hidey hole:

    ^^ Tony Foale came up with that frame, but he's rarely credited for it.
