    Default 76 Ironhead build

    thought I'd share where I'm at. Realistically I need to have some welding done and clean off some rust and paint, then just assembly is left. Need a few knick knacks too finish things out and buying tedious little parts to make this fucky 1976 work. Eventually I'd like to install a kickstart and revert it to right side shift to get rid of the crossover shift flop.

    Paughco s120 frame, 33.4mm front end, 18 in rear wheel.

    Need a seat, battery box, exhaust, oil fittings, neck bearings (thinking of using these ), new handlebars (rabbits are on temporary), headlight, tail light, brake linkages, and im sure i'm forgetting other stuff.

    Anyhow, heres a few cruddy pic of my apartment motorcycle build, i have limited space and dont really know what im doing haha

    Good looking roller, great stance ! 12-14 over forks? I'm sporting the 33.4 also w/ 4 over tubes.

    thanks dude! i'm not sure on the total length, but its definitely pretty darn long. I dont have the triple tree hardware in the front end, and i'm hoping this is why, but theres some flop / sloppiness in the forks when turning. I'm hoping to get the engine in soon for fitment and to see how it sits.

    I'm trying to rememeber, i bought it from a dude here. the company who produced em made em specifically for sportster paughco builds,but they dont make em anymore. its a really good looking and fitting oil tank too.

    Few more things added, need to do welds for my bungs which ive drilled and dropped in the frame, fender, and oil tank.

    Is that Ironhead transmission tool kit from ebay?

    I used that same kit when I tore into my 79 Sporty. Kit was a lifesaver

    Man Nice bike!

    Did you do neck bearings yet?

    Yeah, the neck and forks were a little tricky with the paughco frame.

    Lower fork and stem are 1", basically a bigtwin neck for FX : 1971–1972. So I got paughco neck cups and timken bearings for 1" stem. I would ditch the stock ball bearings, they suck and are a pain in the ass to install.

    I built a lot of my Evo sporty inside the house over the winter, and when I finally took it outside and it didn't look such an ornament I stopped caring about all the little nit picking, cleaning, etc and just started hustling to get it riding. Looking good. Get that thang outside!!

    I'm pretty new to kickstarting, but this was actually pretty easy to get started
