    Ha, thanks man, I sure hope so. I get home from vacation around 2am on Tuesday, I have parts waiting for me like points and a few other PAMCO units to check for spark again. I just know that I’ll get fire as soon as I get the spark lighting up. I’ll keep y’all updated.

    Alright So I think what I need is a damn battery lol I tried 2 more PAMCO units and a set of points and still nothing. Getting power to everything but I tested the voltage on the hot side of the ignition switch and it was only pushing 1.7v
    Obviously not enough coming out of the capacitor to allow the system to send a spark. I did find a little time to make a quick set of bars. Just a little test set to check some angles and such until I make them out of stainless. Also made some threaded bungs for the fender mount. Hopefully I have better news next time

    The bars aren’t anything special, just a set of 10” mini wide apes. I’m stopping at the parts store to grab a cheap small battery to replace the capacitor and see what happens. My capacitor tests fine but, with only 1.7v being pushed out, something’s afoot. Here’s the bars, I’m really looking for a set of offset risers to make the center a bit skinnier but I’m not trying to spent $250 on em.

    Yup, she fired up second kick with the battery. I’m going to grab a new capacitor because I really like the clean look of going batteryless but for now, at least I figured out the gremlin that’s been plaguing me for a week. I knew it was going to be something really stupid.

    Got the seat mounts made and welded up, Shit’s starting to look like a moto-sickle again. Just a whole list of things to do before I get it going down the road.

    Ditching the batteryless concept, made a battery box and got it welded in. But now that I’m looking at it, it might interfere with the chain... I’ll mock that up later, might just have to weld in a tensioner to help clear it. I’ll post a few more pictures after getting back from the hardware so I can route my gas lines.

    Mocked up my chain and it’s going to be close but it looks like it’s going to work. Got my fender mounted to my frame today, made some threaded bungs and welded them to the fender, going to eventually get to the small sissy bar I’m planning. Hooked up my gas lines and she’s idling and revving pretty good. Going to mess with the timing a little bit to get it spot on but, as for now, she’s firing up with one kick! All this self isolation is making this build move a lot quicker than I thought. I’ll have some pictures to upload in a few.

    Still messing with handlebar ideas, think I'm set on a set of tiny riserless Z bars though. The mini apes I made are just a bit wide for how I see this bike rolling down the road. I drilled out the HHB solid riser bushing to accept a 1/2 bolt so I can just use Harley size (1/2-13) riser bolts and bungs as that's what I am making constantly. Hope yall are digging this so far. If you follow me on instagram (@wannabefabrication), you'll see the occasional story post of this thing running plus all the custom bars I make.

    Got the sissy bar bent and mounted, kinda digging the little guy for now but I'll probably make another one if I get another fender. Don't mind the handlebars, they're just a joke. Getting ready to head out to the shop now to make some bars and mount the sissy bar to the fender.

    Looking good. I think your decision about the handlebars is correct. Make it comfortable for you.
    Do not worry about comments by others in general.

    The last thing I’m ever worried about is what others think about my build. My daily rider (08 Sportster) is one of those “love it or hate it” bikes. Here’s what it looks like ��

    Got my foot peg mounts made, turned down some pins out of brass to hold the foot pegs, and now im just tweaking everything a little bit to get them perfect. Then I’ll move on to my rear brake pivot mount that I made up the other day. That’s not so exciting, just bored out a bit of stainless, drilled, threaded, and threw a grease fitting in there for good measure.

    Got my brake rod and all that good stuff put on and the drum is all tuned up earlier today, Chain should be here tomorrow! Hopefully everything aligns correct and I'll be going for a test ride by Monday!
