    Thanks. Yes I think it is a bit smaller.. I only need a one inch clearance. But I think I found a good option. I bit pricey but I know it will work. Has enough CCA to start this sportster even on...

    Have to touch up a bit..but came out ok I think.... It should hold..:D
  16. More mock up...

    Need advice on smaller battery.. Can I use a Vrod battery on this 1200 sportster engine? Looking for an alternative small battery so that I can fit my battery between the rear fender and down tube..

    The saga continues.. .. This rear tire was a &*%$! to get on..Paughco frame is nice but the axle adjustment screw area was not thread tapped all the way. It was a job to get it all threaded through...
