    Default Roadstar Bobber

    This is a new build.
    I started by buying a engine from Ebay.
    Be careful what you buy!! What I mean is make sure parts are not missing.
    Every missing item could be $10.-$50.


    The engine weighs 250lbs., without the middle drive/oil reservoir.
    I needed to get the engine up on my build table. I did not have a hydraulic lift table.
    Here is what I did. I scootched the engine off of the pallet onto the table.

    I moved the engine by hand then I would jack the other end of the table up and attach legs.

    WE (My wife and lovely assistant and I) got the build table level. About two hours work.
    Glad its over! The engine is a 2004 Roadstar engine with 37,000 miles.

    "to be continued...." that looks like a better way than liftin' it up on the bench.
    What is your vision for this build?

    We got the end of the bench about halfway up then I attached some legs in the middle of the bench for safety. We moved the engine towards the other end of the bench and it was much easier to jack up.
    My vision is sort of like...

    That's a great vision for your build - if you can turn that yammie into a knuck, I'm definitely subscribing!LOL.
    Oh, and I would add a vertical piece of 2x4 between the upper and lower rails next to the uprights on your bench if you haven't done it already...

    "Add another 2x4 between rails." The shear strength of a single 16 penny nail is 1100LBs.!
