By blanket I mean that I bought each bit off of a table or blanket at a parts swap meet.  I had been building 'iron' harleys for awhile and had a lot of leftover bits.  As an exercise in harley building, everything pretty much between '36 and '84 will bolt up and this is what you get!  

Johnny Cash had a song about working in a Cadillac plant and building a car over the years with parts smuggled out of the the plant in his lunch box.  That's kinda the idea.

It's got '36-'38 heads, '41+ (finned) side covers, '60s FL frame, '84 rear brake, '70s front disc (I like to stop), electric start and 12volts.  Tank shifter is from a '41 knuckle head.  Paint is a 1940 factory scheme.  I built her in '92.  Rode about 5k last year on her to work and we're about to begin the new season.

What is this bike exactly?  Whats 'Blankets' and whats 'ULH' forgive my ignorence, we don't get too many things like this across the pond.  Can I assume its some kind of Harley?
Looks incredible by the way.
