Boss Hoss builded them, but only a very small number were sold and therefore they are hard to find. I can remember a posting from someone who wanted such a 6cyl. Boss Hoss, too, and had problems to find one.

Elvis,
if you are talking about the bar owner in Louisiana - yes - I remember him. I had some email contact with him a while ago. He's a very good guy. Now that you talked about him - I think he said (wrote) his 6cyl. is for sale. If you see him send him greetings from Olaf - curious if he remebers me, too.

Here are two pics of a german guy's Boss Hoss with horse saddle:
(I like the exhaust pipes very much...)

They are made by Rodware/ Mr.Gasket, Jack.
#MRG-6018- very cheap (lookin) looms. Summit sells them for 29 bucks. But the looms of the yellow Boss wouldn't work for you, because they are mounted to the valve cover bolts of the early style covers. This is a link to the #MRG-6042 looms which you are looking for if you've center bolt covers:

Summit carry them, but they have no picture available. But the MRG-6042 wire looms are displayed here:
(open with the program "Acrobat Reader")

I would prefer Billet Specialties wire looms. They are looking much nicer. But you need the "Late Model bracket kit" to mount the looms directly to your engine heads instead to the valve cover bolts. They are much nicer wire looms than the Mr.Gasket brand- look here:


Summits part#: BSP-69523 , $64.50


Here's a pic of the late model bracket kit: http://www.billetspecialties.com/itemde ... =8&pid=224

The kit is available at Summit as well. Click here for the Late model bracket kit at Summit:

Loaf;

Thank you, your simply amazing!

Quite a lot nicer than I asked about, and still reasonably priced.

By the way, when you visit the US do you ever get close to Florida? If so, I would love to meet you, and tip a cola, or equivilant. Our beer kind-of sucks, compared to a good Uffenheimer Pils, so you must just be prepared to slam a few extra for effect!

Ride Safe!

Oh, a few extra beers won't hurt!!...hehehe... I ever had a BIG effect
after a dozen Budweiser cans...hehehe..
I like Bud-Ice most. But what I like much more than American Budweiser is American Bourbon Whiskey. Can't wait to visit the Jack Daniels distillery in April. I love this stuff.

Oh, and yes, if I make it to Daytona someday I'll visit you for sure- hopefully next year. We plan to go either to Daytona or to the Dyersburg Rally next year with a couple of BH riders from over here.

Loud pipes,

I had this type of plug wire holder on my kannon and I can tell you the dipstick won`t work with them. I used a short dipstick with a plastic handle with an o ring directly into the block. hard to check the oil unless the bike was cold.

Think I'll check with Arkansas Boss tommorrow. He had some on a nice Boss last Daytona. I'll report back what his response is.

I had completely forgotten about that style until Loaf sent that link.

My Boss has the flexible braided stainless dipstick assy and I hope something nice looking like that works.

Jack,
I got these wire holders from Stamford BH. These are chromed, which added to the cost, but..........what the Hell! I liked them cause they didn't have any names or emblems on them.
I just had to bend the bracket that holds the dipstick just a bit, to make it clear the header covers.........Don
PS...Forgive the dust! It's Winter here :(

Wire Looms

Don, Loaf, and guys;

Just ordered a set from Rick Tayler @ Boss Hoss Arkansas for $86 includind shipping to Florida. They are chrome, "no logo" and look exactly like the one's in Dons photo.

Thanks a heap, I had forgotton about seeing them till you all stirred the cobwebs.

I'll post a photo when they are installed (got to get with someone to learn how to do that, I followed the threads twice and am still too bone headed to make it work).

Ride Safe

ps: Don I'd damn near trade that dust for our salt corrosion!
