    Default Old-Stf project : 1964 Panhead Swinger

    Starting a new build.. no customer influence or guidelines just as I want it to be.. This won't be rusty it will have lipstick and most these parts will change. Just need measurements and ideas. Thanks for looking. Will also post progress on the blog with different photos www.old-stf.com

    YES! Mike and I have been yapping about this build for a year or two and I'm excited to see it in motion! I already love it.

    Subscribed! I'm looking for a pan too, it's the best looking motor HD ever made IMHO.

    Mike,

    I've got a drop-seat frame/drum-brake rear set up like you've got going on in my shed right now (for quite a while actually - hard to find time to work on it). I'm really looking forward to seeing how you handle the details on this build, especially with any non-stock controls, tanks, connectors, mounts, etc.

    Your build threads are the best!

    Post lots of pics!!

    I agree. I would love to have a Pan, but just the engines are expensive as hell.

    Nope not using the ironhead drum. probably going to use panhead drum. might use the 19" hoop and 18" on back but also want to see what it looks like with a 21 up front. For sure most parts will change through out the build.
    thanks guys, posting this shit here keeps me motivated as dose Gabe !! and I get good advise. I can't draw a picture worth a fuck but I've had this bike in my head for a couple years. A challenge for myself.. something to make the previous builds look like cake I hope.

    Default headlight cowl

    I got this far and already had to order parts. So I skipped to some fun stuff. Narrowing a pan headlight cowl 2 " I didn't spend much time trying for pretty welds cause I plan to smooth them out anyhow. It dose not appear to be much narrower in the photo but it seems really narrow with fork slider covers and a tire between it. 2" was the most I could do and still keep a resemblance of what it once was so I started here and it will dictate the triple trees.

    Default tree fixture

    Ok here is my jig.. started anyhow not yet finished. I had some repop adjustable top caps and only needed to turn them down a little to fit the tubes I cut. I got a new set of trees because I didn't want to cut the originals. I marked them out with the same 1" wide tape on either side just like the cowling. Burnt my finger a little because I thought I had gloves on.

    Here is the jig complete and trees cut up. I have to get this straight and true so it doesn't dive into turns. I rode this guys bike once that turned normal rights but dropped scary hard into left turns because his front end was tweaked just slightly. I used dial calipers, snap gauges, depth gauges constantly between weld runs and cooling down. I'm burnt out tired.

    first weld pass of four. I got a ton of hours into this and I'm out of argon with only a few welds left to finish before letting it cool and pulling it apart from the jig.
