i liked my bike the way it was but i have never been one to leave anything alone. after smokeout and seeing no efi, rubbermount sportsters that were hardtailed, i decided to go ahead and cut into mine. plans are pretty simple, drop seat hand made hardtail, keep the efi, keep the rubbermount. this is only my second build, my first was a cb750.....this is my first harley....
heres how she started
here is where she was at until last weekend
ready for teardown (no the nick hogan look alike is not me, its yamabobber)
15 minutes later
this is what i am worried about, this wiring is nuts, going to do as much as i can to eliminate wires i dont need and hide others in the backbone.....
here she was 1 1/2 hours later
i took the frame to an old timer who has been building hardtails since vietnam....i am using his jig and brains and he is going to do the bulk of the fab work on the tail section...then it comes back to me for the rest.
more pics to come, i usually would not do a project like this during riding season but i just went for it.
