    Yea basically in between the Speedo spacer that you guys make and the axle plate you need a spacer and a nut to fill that gap so I'm just turning down that nut with the built in spacer down to size and killing two birds with one stone

    That Speedo spacer is awesome by the way!

    Thanks

    Its an original Hap Jones tank that was chromed back in the 60s or 70s, I bought it off of Todd Asin(small city cycles)

    One of the coolest tanks!

    Ok so its been a little while but I have made some good progress

    I deleted the oil pump using one of TFMW delete bolts, cleans that up nicely



    Then I wanted to take a shot at making a neat little headlight bracket






    Came out awesome! the headlight is some old Allstate headlight have no idea what its off of but it fits perfect on this bike

    Next I wanted to get the gas tank mounted, I had to carefully cut off these old mounts



    Centered a hole in the frame, then used a slim top hat bung


    a little welding action^^^

    I still have to weld a tab to the underside of the tank in the tunnel so that I can tighten it down, and I'm probably going to weld two tabs down below the tank in the tunnel where its closest to the top motor mount and have it attach there as well, when I get there ill show some pics

    I also got a chrome fender for the bike, you can see it in the picture above, and started to mount that

    Everything at the back end of this bike is very tight, I wanted it that way, I don't like open spaces, the fender is butted up against the support bars on the hardtail its so tight

    I made a couple tabs, welded them at the correct angle and ran a bolt through the rib of the fender with a nut and washer on the back, the lower tab needs a small spacer that a friend is going to mill down so it fits the rib



    Next up is the fender struts! check em out!


    Have to weld a small tab off the axle plate and drill holes/bolt them to the fender and the back section of the bike is basically done then

    That's all I got for right now, the bike is at my buddys little garage right now cause we are trying to get it done, so I will have more posts up.

    Thanks
