That bike has an automatic chain oiler.....it will "appear" to leak. The oiler is adjustable. The adjustment screw is on the oil pump. A lot of times, they come loose and will dump oil on the drive chain, flinging it forward looking like the Exxon Valdez hit your garage..... Check that first.
Secondly....that bike has a tin primary. If dropped once, or the screws are overtightened resulting in warped metal, they leak like a 90 year olds blader at a comedy show....... Most gaskets are also cork, which suck too..........
Get a manual for the bike. A general repair manual for panheads will work, but there's better ones out there.
