    Default And So The Chop Begins...

    So by the grace of the chopper gods, I made it in to the final 12...couldn't be more appreciative. Big thanks to Bear at Old Bike Barn and Chopcult, as well as all of the sponsors. Spent the day getting the frame fixture built and jigging up the frame. Started in cutting off tabs and cleaning up all the unnecessary pieces and next dropping the seat a couple inches. Looking forward to documenting the build and watching the progress of everyone's builds. See everybody in Ohio with the Big Carrot in tow.

    Latest update.

    Started working on the primary side of my 1968 Triumph T120 motor. I decided to upgrade Clutch to a dry belt drive system. While I was in there, I also upgraded the stator to a 16amp 200w high output unit. Hole cut in the primary cover to help with ventilation of the belt drive.

    Its cold as hell in GA and so I spent a lazy day in the shop yesterday, hand engraved this derby for the Shovel. I don't know if its finished yet, may add some more design or something to the outer edges to use all or most of the space available. I'll let it sit another day or so and think about it. Today, I'll be cleaning up all the tabs I cut off the frame and trying to yet again get the front head loose (its not wanting to budge) to rebuild the top end of the engine. 93 ci of S&S shovelhead awesomeness!

    Thanks! Still need to cleanup some of the hardware on the motor. This evening I put the motor in the frame to figure out a setup for the head steadies since I removed them earlier in the build.

    Hey guys Bear here, I'm currently rounding up your prizes, this process can take a little time. I will be in touch Monday after Mama Tried.

    We need all the help we can get promoting built not bought motorcycle culture and I'm stoked to have all of you aboard.

    Default Kustom Research Cafe Racer Build Update

    Finally getting started on this build! Thanks to Bear and Chop Cult for putting this together, and to all the participating sponsors. I'm starting at the front of the sportster, ditching the stock forks and replacing them with a set off of a 2007 ZX-6R. The bearings and stem are much larger than the 1" diameter sportster, so I decided to make a new smaller stem, an adapter for the upper triple tree, and various retaining nuts. In order to make sure I got things right, I ended up designing the assembly in CAD first. Then end result of that exercise was a perfect fit the first time. These parts were machined by me on manual equipment, not on a CNC. I don't have a huge Bridgeport or anything old, I use a lathe and mill that are both made in China. You can machine pretty much anything on these smaller machines, even down to .0005" like the stem needed to be held to. So if you are hesitant about taking the plunge on doing your own machining, don't worry. There's plenty of videos, books and other information out there on how to machine things, and plenty of smaller machines that can easily fit in a garage. I have some cutting and repairs to do on the upper tree, and I need to figure out the steering stops, but so far no issues with this swap.
