So here's the thing. I have lacked motivation on this thing. If you check my photos, I keep building bikes because I enjoy it, but this thing has been in the corner pissing me off with the amount of work I can see it becoming.
I was originally going to build it back to a stock bike, but I'm just not feeling it. Despite the fact I spent a lot of money on the proper gas tank(at least it's still valuable).
So last night while concurently posting in the Junk Pile from my ipad, and drinking beer, I began the task....
Getting a sick chop ready for Born Free 4. I'm pretty sure I could finish way before that, but adding Born Free to anything is pretty much motorcycle gold.
This thread is more to motivate me, so this first batch of photos isn't going to show any killer work. But at least it's forward progress.
P.S. I originally got this for free from one of my dad's employees, but I felt bad and gave him $300. So still a good price. He thought the generator was an electric start motor, so this project was a bit beyond him.
At Keith's picking up some parts on my way back from getting the bike.
If you don't own a clutch hub puller, you can either buy one, borrow one, or tap the clutch hub with a brass drift and mallet until it comes off the taper. Lightly though. I was going to borrow Tony's(Torch) but I got impatient.
I got the engine and tranny out. And Master Yoda saw that it was good.
That's it for now. But it does a lot for morale. Now I HAVE to update this thing. I have a sick sissy bar in store. One that will take home the 'Best Sissy Bar Ever Created by Man's Hands' award that I'll be giving to myself after I'm done.
