    perhaps but I'm not a complete jerk, otherwise I would not give free support to complete strangers. Notice anything on my sales counter ? I've had these sat out since you sent me that stack for Gabes motor

    thanks Chad
    Just a heads up for people watching and thanks for doing so. This bike is not going to be all year correct and oem so don't use it as a restoration guide. It will be a full fender stock looking bike but a lot of the parts will be picked out based on character and time. Really just want to knock out something to ride. My dad picked this springer which I believe to be 1939 or 1940 because he was told it filled up with water, froze and cracked open. I'm not sure if that's possible but the front end seems to be great otherwise and he's not a bit scared to roll with it. Both the rear legs have a vertical crack in the front about 4" long. He thinks it will be funny when people point it out to him.

    Ha! I was just about to say maybe you arent a jerk for having those FMA cards on the counter, but then you posted the pics of all those sweet parts and i still think you are a JERK!

    No, that is a sweet project, i am very jealous....i am hopefully going tomorrow to pic up a chassis for my UL. It's a knuckle/ul frame with a pan neck...

    Nice build mike. I'm really liking where your going with it.Thanks for the pics,,gotta love the VL front ends on a prewar. Need anything let me know and i'll help if i can. A little insight on my next build(not meaning to hijak but i thought you would like this) seeing how my kid is getting lame at school and his grades are down. Education is first... So it's on to this. 38UH,,, 108 production. keep posting pics, this thread build deserves alot more.

    38 motor looks real good. I was thinking panhead next but I might have to do another U about ten years back I mocked one up in a vl frame and I would like to build it after this one, the alumium heads look huge in a vl frame cause they are I guess. so your putting off the kids 45 build for now ?

    ya, my kid is screwing up in school so no build till he gets his "umphh" together but i am going to freemont to look for parts. Always on the hunt for parts. That U would go great in a VL frame. Do it!!! That would look so good and run sooo nice.. If i may,, speaking of panheads. Here is another one i got going....
    Again, i apologize for the jack...

    Got a couple packages in the mail. Chris cc member CMA406 sent me this perfect clutch arm for the tranny and James Gaskets made us some .045 head and base gaskets so we can lower the compression a bit. The pistons are turned down and are at .020 down at tdc so we needed to lift the cylinders and heads.

    Beautiful build, thanks for showing the assembly.

    Could you tell me why there are 2 rod holes on the clutch arm? One for foot and one for mousetrap maybe? Different angles in the holes?

    sorry not sure, I read in palmer book it's early 36-37 and the second hole may have been for future hand clutch op.

    Hey Mike, figured this thread needed to be on top again seeing how it's the best on the 33'r. Hows the build going? I'm looking into why the 2 holes are in the early clutch release levers as well. Way nice that Chris sent that rare early arm to you. Those are hard to come by and pricy. Went to fremont and scored some cheap stuff for my son(not meaning to hijack). gonna try to run em "as is". If you get time, like to see more pics of the build.

    We are good with the 16" wheels but kinda thinking a correct 18 for the front at least would be nice so if anybody has a line on one with the correct finish (rust) I'd be interested. Will stay with the 16 on the rear. Thanks
