    Yeah, just reversed worm drive on a couple bearings. Still unsure if it is actually going to have enough pull to work on a daily basis, but it looks like it'll work right.

    Tail light came in today. Got the rear tire swapped over, getting the front wheel in black to test out some new paints. Powdercoating was just too damned expensive.

    Looks great man, I'm sure Dan will be flattered!
    The oil tank looks great- nice idea. One minor criticism, and I hate to say it, but I think it might have looked better if the spacing of the fins on the oil tank matched the fin spacing on the head. Either way it's tits, but for next time...

    Keep up the good work-

    Thanks. The fins on the oil tank 100% match the fins on the head. Width, spacing, radiused end. That's what took so long was getting everything to match up with the head. The head on my bike needs cleaned (hopefully soon) so maybe it's an optical illusion, but holding the oil tank sides up to the head fins,they line up 100%.

    Oh right on! That's cool- I think it was just perspective screwing me up... I'll bet it looks tits in person.

    Front wheel is done, rear wheel is giving me a headache. The Harley Hoop on the 'Umph hub creates a problem with spoke alignment. Took a million pictures, but these damned spokes just dont want to go back in their home (insert Happy Gilmore "Are you too GOOD for your HOME?!" here). Anyways. Single 6v Dual fire coil on it's way from Canada, then figure out what all will fit under the gas tank, get the rear motor mount finished up and it's off to powdercoat.

    Got the next to final assembly done now. I dont really remember what all I've done since my last update, but right now all I'm waiting on is misc small stuff: rear brake linkage, clutch perch, cables, and getting the wiring harness built. Frame is done, front end is done, footpegs are done. As soon as I can test ride it, I'll figure out what color to paint it, then get it on the road.

    Getting closer. Brakes, electronics, and rear motor mount left for hard parts. About 2 dozen little things and polishing..

    Got the Monkey's wiring harness buttoned up while I was cooling down. Puts out a solid 12V when cranking it over by hand (awesome!!). Headlight works, taillight still needs a brake switch after I get the brake cable ran. Oh yeah... N&P finally got the last parts I needed for the brake finished up. Picking them up in the AM. Got the new clutch cable installed and working (*YAY!!*). Only things left are: -Hook up throttle cable, -Install Coil bracket and coil, -Tap petcock holes and get petcocks installed with new fuel lines, -Weld up rear motor mount and get it painted, -Paint seat pan, -Install chain, -Build rear brake assy and get wiring hooked up to brake switch. Then it'll be ready for it's shakedown run (hopefully next Wed/Thurs). After it's shakedown run it'll get torn back apart for some misc polishing, new clutches, get the handllebars prepped for rechrome, new headlight mount bracket, wheel bearings, rear brake pads (oh yeah.. can't take it out for shakedown til I find some brake pads... lol) and to get the peg mounts finished up. I was very surprised that the points were still working after sitting sealed up for 3 years. Timing is spot on, valve train seems to be in good shape, and the oil pump is pushing pretty well. Still need to figure out some new oil lines from the tank to the motor (and remember which one on the motor is feed and which is return... I ALWAYS forget which is which). The lower exhaust needs to come off and get final polishing before installing the new roll of exhaust wrap on it and get the forward clamps finished up.

    It's come a ways. Hasn't been quick, but the light is visible at the end of the tunnel.

    Got the coil mount built and installed, oil lines ran and brake setup started last night. As far as I can tell it *SHOULD* start.. going to find out tonight. First time in almost 3 years.

    Everything seems to be in working order. Starts (sometimes first kick, but by the 3rd every time). Had an oil feed problem (feed fitting was too small, not enough oil), but got that resolved. Lights all work, cables are ran. everything seems in working order so far. Now to get the brake to work.
