    Started wiring. Plan to route all wires through the backbone and all electrics at the bottom of the motor. I purchased one of Classic Cycles Inc's "no battery" kits. Tony has been a tremendous help answering my questions on the wiring.






    Put the motor back in and mocked up the pipes. It's just a waiting game for parts to come back from Chrome/Paint and & upholstery.

    Rebuilt the rockers, replaced seals and had them polished. Last piece of the engine puzzle.

    I've been debating making this post for a long time and I am not sure how it will be taken or if it will even be taken down, but here goes. I'm not trying to call anyone out, I'm only stating the facts.
    I was asked to take over a last minute spot for the 2014 Greasy Dozen since I was already an associate builder while at the Gypsy Run this past year. I agreed and was told I would receive all the benefits that any of the other 11 got. I made my update posts and was ready to post some final shots of the bike and had still not received anything I was promised and only received a lot of run around. Long story short, I held back my photos and any mention of the GD on all social media because I was a bit bitter. Bitter, not for free shit that I didn't get, but for the fact that I shelled out money I didn't have to finish this bike only to get blown off in the end.
    I did give my word that I would finish and post this bike though so I want to hold that up, regardless of the past so here she is.

    Took my build out to a local coffee and cars show for giggles, my gf has a 66 mustang and a newer br-z she likes to show and I never had any of my bikes "finished" enough to ride up there until this past one. The bike got a lot of attention, a mix I'm sure of bad and good, ha. After the show we drove up to a swap meet on old route 66 and I picked up a vintage beach cruiser looking set of handlebars with more pullback for $2 that I ended up liking a hell of a lot more than what's on there in this pic. Eventually the tail wires will be tucked up under the fender instead of hanging there on the side. I actually have two more roller frames and engines and I might try to do a clean build using the same overall dimensions as this one, it's hella fun to ride.

    The SECApocalypse is now rolling on two wheels. Used rope to stand in for the linkage shock I need to set up, tires are flat and there is no steering, left the seat at home. I still managed to get it up to jogging speed and coast a good 10 feet riding it.

    Shop is having a big ass exhibition this weekend, so I figured I'd get it put together for people to see, since even half the people I work around have no idea how it will ever be a motorcycle. Tomorrow morning I'm gonna bring in the seat and kickstand, pump up the tires, try and get the front suspension stiff enough to support somebody bouncing up and down on it.

    Alright well, Here is a big build dump! Holy crap I've been busy and my computer doesn't like to allow me to do anything!
    Anyway, I've been doing a ton of odd and ends trying to get everything ready for final assembly before paint. All I really have to do now is get the rocker boxes polished up and I'm ready to go! I had a few set backs with the heads though. First the front head didnt want to budge. It literally was baked onto the cylinder! It finally took a bunch of heat and a rubber mallet and a bunch of time to get that bitch off. Then, the head gaskets were baked on like nothing I've ever seen. Broke several gasket tools trying to get even a small portion off. Purchased a 3M wheel grinder piece made for aluminum that I saw referenced on the interweb for head gasket removal. Didnt work. finally had to just elbow grease it to get them cleaned up. Rocker boxes were planned to be resurfaced and polished by hand. After many hours of resurfacing and polishing, I decided the rocker boxes still had too many small pin-hole pits where polish and crap was settling into that I didnt like so I've decided to have them polished the right way. If thats the only thing I dont do myself but, get a quality look out of it, I'm fine with that. Once the rocker boxes are done. I have the trans, engine case and most of the parts I need to put it all together and do a final mock up before sending the tank and rear fender off to paint. I still need tires and to wire the entire bike. I want to get everything else complete so I can have a lot of time to wire this sucker and not worry about time. I cut a bunch of tabs off the frame and got them sealed back up and painted. I then took down time at the house to make up a Greasy Dozen helmet I'll cover my ugly noggin with at the Greasy Dozen run. As you'll see in the pics, I've used some space as a Thank you to Chop Cult and Bear for including me in the Greasy Dozen. I've got some really cool stuff from a few of the sponsors like Speed Dealer and TC Bros. Choppers, Show Class and Triple Six Death Crew and more stuff on the way. Thank you to every one of the sponsors! Every thing you guys are offering is AWESOME!

    A lot of the other builds are killer! jdizon, that is one hell of a bike man! I've been following a lot of other builds like Slop Shop on instagram and Allan76 and I cannot wait to see them finished! Keep building guys, built not bought!
    Peace and Grease,

    been a few since I updated everyone in this thread. bike is coming along great just in time for born free!!!!! well be there after the Neanderthal show in OK.

    got my attempt at making a trident since all the old ones I had laying around wont fit my set up and all the final fab work done! tank and fender are at paint now! going to have frame powder coated this week. recovering the AEE seat as well.

    went to crank the bike this week and got no spark! thankfully bear hooked us up with kevin from S&S so hoping to get hooked up with a
    HI-4n electronic ignition and coil set up!! decided to go ahead and not risk any funny business and go ahead and replace stator and reg while im at it!

    looking to leave Neanderthal show- drive to Denver- drop off the van- ride chops from Denver to born free!

    Hey Greasy dozen crew ! I've been slacking on my posts lately, but I'm moving right along with my motor build. So far I've got a rephrased crank and cam, taller 5th gear, ported polished heads, new timing chain, rings, and a new set of gaskets and seals from Bear at Old Bike Barn. Special thanks to all the rad sponsors, this has been a great experience !!! Up next is prep and paint for the frame and tins.... Then Final assembly !!! Stay tuned, BUILT NOT BOUGHT

    I've been pushing my machining skills a bit, came up with this for the bridge of my upper control arm so I can make it really short (or longer if desired after tuning). Overkill to the purpose, but the location makes it effectively my bikes 'hood ornament', I'll be staring at it bouncing up and down while I ride, so I wanted something fancier than a plain block or steel tube (and lighter, as its unsprung mass). A couple 3/4" tubes go in the slotted holes that the count-sunk bolts pinch down; the tubes are threaded for heims, to allow infinitely adjustable length. Is a crap photo, will get a better one later.

    Milled from 7075-T6 aluminum on Bridgeport, 100% manual, about 20 hours for layout / setup / drilling / cutting / threading.

    Test fit the new part to check geometry and part collision


    Trimmed down the side plates and threw a radius on some of the edges. Looking at pike nuts or flame sliders on those protruding bolts.

    Default KUSTOM RESEARCH Cafe Racer Update

    Heavy into the fabrication of this build! Some of the most recent things that were built and not bought were: Exhaust, frame/tail extension, master cylinder mount, gauge mount, rear cowl, voltage regulator mount. The bike is now re-wired and functioning. I have had this bike for over a year now and really haven't heard it run, so rebuilding the carb and hearing that it runs great is a great relief! I am working on finishing up the tail/seat area. the rear cowl was made from a piece of the sportster front fender, you should be able to spot this. We have received our packages from some of the sponsors, we will be filtering pictures of these parts into our instagram feed as well as here they go on the bike. The Speed Dealer pegs are awesome, very high quality pieces that look great! Cristin is dying to ride this bike and we should have it on the road in an unfinished form soon.

    UPDATE FROM GD HQ

    Its all about promoting and showcasing #builtnotbought and garage built motorcycles!
    Ok gents, The Greasy Dozen Run is just about 3 months out. Actually it’s 80 days.

    Great work on the thread and progress pictures, guys! I did notice that not everyone is posting on here via the thread so please get some pictures up if you have not already! Don’t forget to use the following hash tags in social media #builtnotbought #greasydozenbuildercollective #greasydozenbuilder and #greasydozen.

    We just started an IG account for “The Greasy Dozen Builder Collective” ( @thegreasydozen ) and I’m very pleased to announce that Tim Granda from www.doomcycle.com ,also a first year GD builder, will be stepping up to the plate to manage that feed and post GD related content!
    In other news there are still a few more prizes to give out but so far you should have received:
    Biltwell, Lowbrow, Old Bike Barn, TC Bros, Speeddealer. S&S

    Also some long over due care packages with the contents all being gifts directly from me are finally moving, and include things like t-shirts, a tool or bed roll for each of you and some traditionally styled vests. Look for an email with your tracking number today.

    Lastly, I’m pleased to announce the GD finally has a full time Admin to take care of your needs. If you get stuck with anything or have trouble making a promo code work etc. you should email Matt@thegreasydozen.com and he can take care of you faster than I can. I remain personally available to each builder via text (y’all got my digits) and I will hit each of you up today via that method.

    Good luck with your builds and stay tuned for a few more prizes! See you in September!
