Seeing all the BT flattys posted lately...Figure i would share with mine...I've been getting pretty much everything for it for several yrs and i finished the 41..So the 38UH 80" is going on the lift. I'm thinking of going full restoration with Venetian Blue..
Here's what i have to work with parts and hardware. All being oem. Fenders, choice of early front ends in which i'll restore and stepped hubs..I'll build the hubs, get the spokes cad plated then i'll lace and true them up..I have a couple of KHW nos rims for it..
Started on the rims and hubs..Sending 2 of them out to get the races hard chromed and milled down to standard..Beaded the rims and the nice hubs i have for paint and i parkerized on..The wheel pictured is for the side-car..Has the 40-42 hub with it. Last pic is the op nos rim i have for the 38 and i bead blasted it for paint.
More progress. I went with the early front end and it's a late 37 early 38. But things need fix'en. Dampner rod was stuck and i got it out. Early pre-war dampner rods are hard to come by and fortunately i have another one. Some freeze breaks on the rear fork which will get repaired and the front fork was a #8. I have a #3 and thats a good thing. I was able to trade a 36 oil tank for 38-39 one. When the back leg gets repaired i'll mock up the tin and oil tank. Then it'll be, rims, stepped hubs,front and back legs,oil tank and fenders will be ready for paint.. You'll see on the rear leg the notch for the pin on the dampner rod(pre-war). Also getting parts ready for Cad and park plating.
