    Gotcha. Hope whatever you chose works out. It must suck to get hit with spine issues.

    Did you already hard tail the frame? IMO the 'softail' frame and a minimalist rigid seat is a better way to go than a sprung seat on a hard tail frame both for looks and a cushy ride.

    I'm about to...

    +1.

    On one of my XS650 chops I raked the steering head a few degrees and used the front end (and 21" rim and hub) from a late 70's era Suzuki RM125. The nice thing is that the leading axle of the...

    I'd advise staying away from Moto Iron fork tubes... both my original pair and their replacements had issues with quality and fit to the point I went back to the OEM tubes.

    Do you find this to be true with just shovelheads or have you known other HD motors to behave the same way?

    Nope, my +6 handle fine and give me extra clearance so I don't scrape my forward sets as easily.

    What you've described sounds so much like inadequate or zero valve clearance when cold so as the motor heats up and the valve gear tightens up, the valves are prevented from closing completely until...

    I don't understand why people are so keen to convert from belt to chain final drive on a street bike.

    I agree with farmall 100%.

    Also, it was never mentioned whether or not the old brass floats were leak free... if they have a pinhole leak they'll take on fuel and negate static float height...

    I would keep it as an 883, set up the ergos to my liking, tune it to run efficiently and just ride it. Sure a 1200 can offer more power and torque but IMO as a student it wouldn't be worth the added...
