    Default 96 heritage chop

    So I bought this beautiful looking heritage to destroy



    It runs and Ultima motor, yet to determine whether it's a 100 or 107, and has an s-& s super stock 5 speed. Pulling the heads and s&s manifold off to port polish and port match them, and shave the decks for a bit more bump. Also have a thunder jet sitting there to go in the super e carb.
    BDL belt drive and chain final drive conversion there too.

    As for the rest well there's a lot of cool shit go into this bike so I won't spoil the surprise, but I'll leave a couple teasers of where it's at now.

    Thanks Leon. Be a bit slow going to begin with as I have a couple jobs on two other bikes to finish first but I'll throw up the progress when it happens

    I shouldn't be touching this thing yet but I was getting a bit of an idea how I want it to sit dropped. The seat needs to be moved forward an inch and a half and down one inch so the nose of the seat sits flush with the frame. The tank is at the angle I like but will come down an inch once I cut those mounts off that's keeping it from sitting down

    Got a bunch more parts sent off to the engraver.
    Heads and s&s manifold off for some port and polish and port match work too. As well as a thunderjet tapped into the super e carb. Dropping in some new SE tappets while I'm in there

    Perhaps fit the rear fender prior to moving the seat so you can check proportions etc

    Considering you are chasing more hp perhaps give serious considerarion to running good front brakes

    Coming along nice man! That seat is nucking' futz! I love the engraving, if i had the coin, or better yet the know how, I'd probably engrave the shit out of every piece of metal I own. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks pete! The seat was touching the tyre in that photo, so it has to come forward an inch or more to clear the fender, the moulded mounts on the seat weren't allowing me to position the seat further forward when I was mocking things up. Both the tank and seat are not in their final positions, I was just giving you guys a rough idea. We will be making a fender from scratch on the english wheel, so once that's complete we will start mounting things up

    Im not actually on a horsepower hunt, I wanted to change lifters and get some engraving done and at the point I thought I may as well port polish and port match the heads and manifold. It's not going to make any huge numbers. But based off the last dyno sheet, I'm assuming at the worst we will see around 110-115hp at the rear with the new pipes I'm making and the machine work, that'll be enough for now.
    Front brakes I thought about going what I did on the last bike with 320mm lyndalls ceramic composite rotor up front with a performance machine 6 piston caliper, or something a bit more extreme off a sports bike, or wether I just go some cheap Wilwood back rotors and a 4 piston caliper up front which would probably suit the style and still be sufficient.

    Thanks man!! Oh I wish the same thing, if only I could engrave I'd put little details into everything. Pretty amazing considering this guy does it the old school way with a hammer and chisel

    Neat little used 4" exile headlight I picked up, absolutely love it. Wasn't sure which bike I'd use it on but I think it suits this bike perfectly so this will be getting sent off to the engraver as well.

    Just a few of many of the parts I've been collecting for this build. New 107 barrels and pistons arrived so soon I'll get to work on the motor with having the heads worked and extract what extra compression I can try make use of that big .625" lift cam. Triple X Carburettas built me one of their top of the line s&s sure G carbs with every possible mod. Had this one with the new manifold smoothed and chromed as the polished carbys are a real pain to polish.

    Damn that engraving is tits!

    Just wondering how you got the springer to sit so nice - raked cups? Offset springer? Frame rake? Something else?

    Thanks Pete! More engraving to come yet. Agree with you there that rake looks spot on doesn't it! It's a 7/8 stem sitting in 1" bearings and no top clamp so it's sitting loosely in there. The wheel is just touching the ground to push that front out a touch as this is where I'd like it to sit. Going to rake the neck about 2 degrees at the most to achieve this look permanently

    Cheers mate was wondering how it was that - I have a FXSTS and they look like they have hit a bus stock When its time for neck bearings think I'll slide in some raked cups hoping that helps lol

    Ah yes the fxsts has the offset springer so it's got a de-raked look. This is an inline springer, so it runs inline with the 32 degree rake the neck has. Though in the above pics with it pushed out a little I think it'd be around 33-34 degrees rake

    Be careful with the raked cups, while some have no troubles with them, some end up with a bit of free play in the front end from the cups not being spot on. If you use the 3 degree cups you will end up with a simliar stretch wgile keeping the trail within limits

    Excuse the poor photo quality, I screen shot these from a poor quality video sent to me. But that's the headlight done.

    I'm subscribed to this thread! Hey Ink I'm doing my first build and it's an 88 Softail springer. I've got a couple of questions, you mind if I pm you?
