Heres my 57 iron head chopper. Looking for some advice between magneto or distributor? Any thoughts or advantages to one or the other? My carb is hitting the magneto and was leaning to distributor for clearance issues.

Nice Chopper!

Agreed with the mag being flipped. Do you have a S&S carb or stock? Attached a pic of the clearance on my 67.
Asked my Father in law about his 57 that he runs with a distributor and stock carb. He said it rides a little higher than a mag. So I dug up and attached a pic of that too. If this is a non issue at this point oh well. If you need more info or what ever I can get you some more advice from him.

Any updates? What did you end up going with? I hate when people leave this kinda thing unfinished, cause the next guy might really need the advice!
