    Well, there's round one of polishing. A bit more tomorrow to fix up a couple cloudy spots, then off to upholstery on Monday. Finished my muffler/pipe mount brackets today too, but a bit boring and tucked away for photos.

    I should add, I am doing most of this work at Schwartz Inc., in Bloomingdale.(http://www.schwartzwelding.com/) My friend Grant Schwartz has graciously let me work on this thing and use his machinery and tools to get this project to where it is now, along with finding the doner bike and taking care of the welding duties. That's all his stuff in the background. Thanks, Grant!

    Fork brace for the Roadholder fork, will also double as a front fender bracket; had to give it side cut-outs to clear the fork shrouds. tricky to get all the angled cuts right. Likely should have made the cuts BEFORE getting the radius rolled... Live and learn.

    I think WOW is about all I can up with. I don't come to this section much, but the work you've done is amazing. I subscribed now.

    Just so you know, I'm listening to The Very Best of Prince right now. Anyway, here's how I mounted my coils:













    I've had 4 double rums. Purple Rain bitches!

    Impressive craftsmanship. That is great that you salvaged the frame.

    Been a while since I posted anything, been away for a week... Getting down to it though, almost done fab work. Made some guage brackets out of scrap 3/16th aluminum this week. used a bandsaw, a drill, a jigsaw and a lot of filing.











    So, as you can see, in the end I changed it up from the origional idea I had in my "cereal box" template (honey nut cheerios, I think...) I was going to make a large oval cut out for all the crap on the back of the guage, but I didn't have a big enough hole saw, so instead, I drilled three 1/2" holes in a triangular position, then cut out the triangle with a jig saw, then filed the shit out of it. The triangle isn't centered because the screws on the back of the guage are not centered. I have since cut out the second bracket, bolted it together with the first and filed them the same shape. In these pics the first bracket is still "roughed out". I also added a slight upward bend between the fork top nut hole and the bottom of the gauge. More pics Wednesday.
